In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 8670 (OEM) are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 740M.

The HD 8670 has a 190 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce GT 740M, but the GeForce GT 740M has 8 more Texture Mapping Units than the HD 8670. As a result, the GeForce GT 740M exhibits a 1.9 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the HD 8670. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The HD 8670 has a 190 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce GT 740M, but the GeForce GT 740M has 8 more Render Output Units than the HD 8670. As a result, the GeForce GT 740M exhibits a 5 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the HD 8670. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GeForce GT 740M was released less than a year after the HD 8670, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The Radeon HD 8670 (OEM) and the GeForce GT 740M have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The HD 8670 has 44.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce GT 740M, which means that the memory performance of the HD 8670 is noticeably better than the GeForce GT 740M.

Both the Radeon HD 8670 (OEM) and the GeForce GT 740M have 384 Shader Processing Units. While the two GPUs have the same number of SPUs, the actual performance delivered by the HD 8670 is 343 and by the GeForce GT 740M is 311. Knowing that the shader performance of the HD 8670 is superior, it is not necessary to examine the GPUs' respective Texture and Pixel Fill Rates.

The Radeon HD 8670 (OEM) requires 75 Watts to run and the GeForce GT 740M requires 45 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the HD 8670. The HD 8670 requires 30 Watts more than the GeForce GT 740M to run. The difference is not significant enough for the HD 8670 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GeForce GT 740M.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Radeon HD 8670 (OEM) is an OEM Only, Fast-Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the First Revision of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture.

Architecture
The GCN 1.1 revision of the Graphics Core Next Architecture adds new important technologies and is largely oriented for energy efficiency. New technologies such as PowerTune and TrueAudio are the biggest additions as well as DirectX 11.2 support.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed Oland XT which has 6 Compute Units activated and thus offers 384 Shader Processing Units, 24 TMUs and 8 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 1000MHz and goes up to 1050MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 1150MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 60W, it requires at least a 400W PSU and relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power, meaning no extra connectors are required.

Performance
Radeon HD 8670 (OEM) Competes with GeForce GTX 750 but the latter is much faster and slightly more efficient.
It proves to be as fast as Radeon HD 7750.

System Suggestions
Radeon HD 8670 (OEM) is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1600x900. We recommend a Decent Processor (Intel Core i3 Dual Core/AMD FX Quad Core) and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
Overview
GeForce GT 740M is a Middle-Class Mobile Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Kepler Architecture.

Architecture
The Kepler Architecture was NVIDIA's big step to power efficiency. Each Stream Multiprocessor (SMX) now hosts 192 Shader Processing Units - against the 48 of older Fermi Architecture, and has been redesigned being now clocked at the same speed of the Central Unit. This means they are more energy efficient and will consequently lead to cooler operating temperatures. However, it also means they are weaker. It can be said that one Fermi SMX is as fast as 2 Kepler SMXs.
Additionally, and not available in all GPUs, Kepler also introduced the Boost Clock Feature. The Boost Clock is an even higher Clock Speed activated when in gaming mode and becomes the effective speed of the GPU.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed GK107-GT-740M which has 2 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 384 Shader Processing Units, 32 TMUs and 16 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 810MHz.

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 no way benefits the GPU. The Memory Clock Operates at 900MHz.

Features
DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for SLI, Kepler Boost, Optimus, CUDA, OpenCL, DirectCompute, 3D Vision Surround, PhysX, Realtime Raytracing and other technologies

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 45W, it is suited for average sized laptops.

Performance
GeForce GT 740M is essentially a fast GeForce GT 640M.
Gaming benchmarks indicate its Performance is around 3% worse than the older GeForce GT 650M.

System Suggestions
We recommend a decent processor (Intel Core i5 Mobile) and 8GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GT 740M.
