Gaming Performance Comparison
In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 7670M 2GB DDR3 are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce 710M.
The GeForce 710M has a 175 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD 7670M, but the HD 7670M has 8 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce 710M. As a result, the HD 7670M exhibits a 2 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GeForce 710M. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.
The GeForce 710M has a 175 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD 7670M, but the HD 7670M has 8 more Render Output Units than the GeForce 710M. As a result, the HD 7670M exhibits a 3.4 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GeForce 710M. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.
The GeForce 710M was released over a year more recently than the HD 7670M, and so the GeForce 710M is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games.
The HD 7670M has 1024 MB more video memory than the GeForce 710M, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the HD 7670M also has superior memory performance overall.
The HD 7670M has 14.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce 710M, which means that the memory performance of the HD 7670M is slightly better than the GeForce 710M.
The GeForce 710M has 96 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 7670M 2GB DDR3 has 480. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce 710M is 192 and the actual shader performance of the HD 7670M is 312. The HD 7670M having 120 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the HD 7670M delivers a slightly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce 710M.
The GeForce 710M transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the HD 7670M. This means that the GeForce 710M is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the HD 7670M.
The GeForce 710M requires 15 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Radeon HD 7670M 2GB DDR3.

|Mini Review||GeForce 710M is an entry-level GPU still based on the ageing Fermi architecture. |
It's based on the 28nm optimized Fermi GF117 Core and therefore offers 96 Shader Processing Units, 16 TMUs and 8 ROPs. All this, in a 64-bit memory interface of DDR3. Both the central unit and operating memory clock will be clocked up to a maximum that will be decided by laptop manufacturer whereas they can be clocked up to 775MHz and 900MHz, respectively. However, the most common versions might be underclocked to reduce the power consumption. Higher clocked versions will consume much more power.
Therefore, GeForce 710M's performance will depend on its central unit's speed and can be similar to GeForce GT 620M and never above GeForce GT 630M due to the 64-bit bus width. All in all, modern demanding games will require reduced settings (medium) and a 720p resolution.
Please Note this GPU is ranked based on the fastest known version. Lower Clocked versions will perform considerably worse.
|Radeon HD 7670M 2GB DDR3 is an upper middle-class level GPU part of the 7000M Series released by AMD. |
It's technically a rename of the middle-class Radeon HD 6650M and the 2GB frame buffer is a gimmick as Radeon HD 7670M 2GB DDR3 does not have enough bandwidth and is not power enough to use 1GB of video memory, let alone 2GB.
Very Demanding games like Metro 2033 might be playable at medium settings (depending on the resolution + DirectX Version used) while demanding games like Crysis 2 are probably playable at high settings. Old and less demanding games like COD: Black Ops should be playable at max settings easily.
