Gaming Performance Comparison
In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 7750 Sapphire 2GB DDR3 Edition are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce 710M.
The HD 7750 has a 25 MHz higher core clock speed and 16 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce 710M. This results in the HD 7750 providing 13.2 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 HD 7750 has a 25 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Render Output Units than the GeForce 710M. This results in the HD 7750 providing 6.6 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 GeForce 710M was released less than a year after the HD 7750, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.
The HD 7750 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 7750 also has superior memory performance overall.
The HD 7750 has 11.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce 710M, which means that the memory performance of the HD 7750 is slightly better than the GeForce 710M.
The GeForce 710M has 96 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 7750 Sapphire 2GB DDR3 Edition has 512. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce 710M is 149 and the actual shader performance of the HD 7750 is 348. The HD 7750 having 199 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the HD 7750 delivers a noticeably smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce 710M.
The GeForce 710M requires 15 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Radeon HD 7750 Sapphire 2GB DDR3 Edition. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the HD 7750, but we do not have a recommended PSU wattage for the GeForce 710M.
|Mini Review||Overview |
GeForce 710M is a entry-level Mobile Graphics Card based on the second revision of the Fermi Architecture.
The Fermi Architecture is manufactured with a 40nm Technology and uses a technique known as Hot Clocking: The Shaders are clocked twice as fast as the Central Unit. While this leads to a reasonable performance boost, it causes enormous amounts of energy dissipation, leading, ultimately, to a significantly higher operating temperature.
Fermi is also the first GPU architecture with fully cached memory access which increases memory performance.
It equips a GPU Codenamed GF117-N14M-GL which has 2 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 96 Shader Processing Units, 16 TMUs and 8 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 775MHz.
Additionally, GF117 is built using a 28nm technology.
The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 64-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is exaggerated and no way benefits the GPU. The Memory Clock Operates at 900MHz.
DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for Optimus, 3D Vision Surround, PhysX, Realtime Raytracing and other technologies
With a rated board TDP of 15W, it is suited for small laptops.
GeForce GT 710M is essentially a fast GeForce GT 620M.
Gaming benchmarks indicate its performance is slightly below the older GeForce GT 540M.
We recommend a modest processor (Intel Core i3 Mobile) and 4GB of RAM for a system with GeForce 710M.
|Radeon HD 7750 Sapphire 2GB DDR3 Edition is a special edition of the fast-middle-class Radeon HD 7750 1GB DDR3. |
This version has no new features (when compared to the DDR3 version) and so it performs exactly like it.
