In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Mobility Radeon HD 3850 are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce 320M.

The GeForce 320M was released over a year more recently than the Radeon HD, and so the GeForce 320M is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the Radeon HD.

The Radeon HD has 512 MB video memory, but the GeForce 320M does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The GeForce 320M has 48 Shader Processing Units and the Mobility Radeon HD 3850 has 320. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce 320M is 45 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD is 186. The Radeon HD having 141 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Radeon HD delivers a slightly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce 320M.

The GeForce 320M requires 23 Watts to run and the Mobility Radeon HD 3850 requires 45 Watts. The Radeon HD requires 22 Watts more than the GeForce 320M to run. The difference is not significant enough for the Radeon HD to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GeForce 320M.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce 320M is an Integrated Mobile Graphics Card based on the Second Revision of the Tesla Architecture.

Architecture
Tesla was NVIDIA's First Unified Shader Architecture.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed Tesla MCP89 which has 4 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 48 Shader Processing Units, 16 TMUs and 8 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 450MHz.

Memory
The GPU also Shares the System's RAM which varies from laptop to laptop. Typically, the GPU reserves 256MB. Depending on whether or not the system's RAM is Dual-Channeled, it can access either a 64-bit or 128-bit memory interface. The operating memory clock also depends on the at which speed the System's RAM is running and is limited by the highest operating speed that the Processor supports. It is then obvious the Memory Bandwidth depends on a lot of factors and thus this Graphics Card performance may vary heavily from system to system.

Features
DirectX 10.1 Support (10.0 Hardware Default) and support for NVIDIA PureVideo HD Technology, Dual-stream Hardware Acceleration, PhysX, CUDA, HybridPower and other technologies.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 14W, it may be used on very small notebooks.

Performance
Gaming benchmarks put its performance considerably above the desktop GeForce 210.
The ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3000 Series of discrete graphics allow you to experience the power of HD with graphics processing designed for how you work and play. Advance to the next generation of HD game performance and lifelike realism thanks to Microsoft DirectX 10.1 capabilities and PCI Express 2.0 support for fast throughput and superior overall system performance. Watch the latest Blu-ray and HD-DVD videos in full-HD 1080p image resolution off your graphics processor and reduce demands on your CPU. Enjoy breakthrough energy efficiency with superb performance-per-watt delivering exceptional battery life.
