In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 3800 series are significantly better than the Intel HD Graphics 4000 Desktop.

The HD 3800 has no core clock speed set, so any comparison between Texture and Pixel Fill Rates is not currently possible.

The Graphics 4000 was released over three years more recently than the HD 3800, and so the Graphics 4000 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the HD 3800 when running the latest games.

The HD 3800 has 512 MB video memory, but the Graphics 4000 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The HD Graphics 4000 Desktop has 16 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 3800 series has 320. However, the actual shader performance of the Graphics 4000 is 74 and the actual shader performance of the HD 3800 is 0. The Graphics 4000 having 74 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Graphics 4000 delivers a slightly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the HD 3800.

The Graphics 4000 transistor size technology is 33 nm (nanometers) smaller than the HD 3800. This means that the Graphics 4000 is expected to run much cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the HD 3800.

The HD Graphics 4000 Desktop requires 77 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Radeon HD 3800 series. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the Graphics 4000.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Intel HD Graphics 4000 Desktop are Integrated Graphics in some of Intel's Desktop Ivy Bridge Processors.

The Ivy Bridge GT2 Core includes support for DirectX 11, OpenCL 1.2 and OpenGL 4.0. Additionally, it also offers Hardware Tessellation, Dedicated L3 Cache and better Video Decoding Performance, when compared to its Predecessor.

It equips a GPU Codenamed GT2 which offers 16 Shader Processing Units, 4 TMUs and 4 ROPs. The Central Unit Initially Runs at 200MHz and goes up to 1150MHz, in Turbo Mode.

The GPU Shares the System's RAM which varies from System to System. Typically, the GPU reserves 1.7GB. 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 which speed the System's RAM is running and is limited by the highest operating speed that the Processor supports. In this case, it is 800MHz.
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.

The Most Powerful Variant Offers Performance similar to a dedicated GeForce GT 620.

System Suggestions
We recommend 4GB of RAM for a system with Intel HD Graphics 4000 Desktop.
Radeon HD 3800 Series is not a GPU but instead a combination between Radeon HD 3830, Radeon HD 3850 and Radeon HD 3870 whose rank is a balance between the three and that exists for System Requirements purposes only.
