In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon RX 5300M are massively better than the AMD Radeon HD 8850M.

The Radeon RX 5300M has a 375 MHz higher core clock speed and 48 more Texture Mapping Units than the Radeon HD 8850M. This results in the Radeon RX 5300M providing 63 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The Radeon RX 5300M has a 375 MHz higher core clock speed and 16 more Render Output Units than the Radeon HD 8850M. This results in the Radeon RX 5300M providing 22 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The Radeon RX 5300M was released over three years more recently than the Radeon HD 8850M, and so the Radeon RX 5300M is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the Radeon HD 8850M when running the latest games.

The Radeon RX 5300M has 1024 MB more video memory than the Radeon HD 8850M, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the Radeon RX 5300M also has superior memory performance overall.

The Radeon RX 5300M has 192 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Radeon HD 8850M, which means that the memory performance of the Radeon RX 5300M is massively better than the Radeon HD 8850M.

The Radeon RX 5300M has 1408 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 8850M has 640. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon RX 5300M is 1322 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 8850M is 496. The Radeon RX 5300M having 826 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Radeon RX 5300M delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Radeon HD 8850M.

The Radeon RX 5300M transistor size technology is 21 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Radeon HD 8850M. This means that the Radeon RX 5300M is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Radeon HD 8850M.

The Radeon RX 5300M requires 85 Watts to run and the Radeon HD 8850M requires 45 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the Radeon RX 5300M. The Radeon RX 5300M requires 40 Watts more than the Radeon HD 8850M to run. The difference is significant enough that the Radeon RX 5300M may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the Radeon HD 8850M.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
The Radeon RX 5300M is an entry-level laptop graphics card which is part of the AMD Radeon RX 5000M series.

Architecture
It is powered by the 7nm Navi GPU, which has 1408 shader processing units, 88 TMUs and 32 ROPs.

GPU
The central unit runs at 1000MHz and goes up to 1445MHz when the boost mode is triggered.

Memory
The RX 5300M comes with a 3GB frame buffer of GDDR6 through a 128-bit memory interface, while the memory clock operates at 1750MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 85W, it requires at least a 450W PSU.

Performance
The Radeon RX 5300M been built as a Low/Mid performance graphics card for 2019. Its direct competitor is the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070M. It will run most triple AAA titles released during 2019 on medium to high graphics at 1080p screen resolution. With adjustments and lowering anti aliasing this Radeon RX 5300M card can confidently maintain 60+ frames per seconds on high graphic settings at 1080p. Moving to 1440p screen resolution and the graphics card may need to be adjusted down to medium in order to maintain 50-60+ fps.

System Suggestions
The Radeon RX 5300M is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080. We recommend a mid range Ryzen 5 processor and at least 8GB of system memory for optimal gaming performance from the RX 5300M.
Overview
Radeon HD 8850M is a Performance Mobile Graphics Card based on the Second Revision of the GCN Architecture.

Architecture
The GCN 1.1 Release adds support for AMD's TrueAudio Technology which does calculations of audio effects "better" than the CPU and further improves the Powertune Technology.

GPU
It equips a GPU codenamed Venus PRO which has 10 Compute Units activated and thus offers 640 Shader Processing Units, 40 TMUs and 16 ROPs. The Central Unit Initially Operates at 625MHz and goes up to 775MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is exaggerated and in no way benefits the GPU. The memory clock operates at 1000MHz.

Features
DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for Crossfire, PowerTune Technology, Eyefinity, App Acceleration, HD3D, ZeroCore Power and other technologies.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 45W, it is suited for 17" or larger laptops.

Performance
Gaming benchmarks put its performance somewhat above NVIDIA's GeForce GT 750M.

System Suggestions
We recommend a Decent Processor (Intel Core i5 Mobile) and 8GB of RAM for a system with Radeon HD 8850M.
