In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro FX 3450 are noticeably better than the AMD Radeon HD 8350 (OEM).

The HD 8350 was released over three years more recently than the Quadro FX 3450, and so the HD 8350 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the Quadro FX 3450 when running the latest games.

The HD 8350 has 256 MB more video memory than the Quadro FX 3450, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the Quadro FX 3450 has superior memory performance.

The Quadro FX 3450 has 51.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the HD 8350, which means that the memory performance of the Quadro FX 3450 is much better than the HD 8350.

The Radeon HD 8350 (OEM) has 80 Shader Processing Units and the Quadro FX 3450 has 12. However, the actual shader performance of the HD 8350 is 26 and the actual shader performance of the Quadro FX 3450 is 5. The HD 8350 having 21 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Quadro FX 3450 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The Radeon HD 8350 (OEM) requires 25 Watts to run and the Quadro FX 3450 requires 83 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 250 Watts for the HD 8350. The Quadro FX 3450 requires 58 Watts more than the HD 8350 to run. The difference is significant enough that the Quadro FX 3450 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the HD 8350.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Radeon HD 8350 (OEM) is an OEM Only, entry-level Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Terascale Architecture.

Terascale was AMD's first Unified Shader Architecture. In addition to being manufactured with a 40nm Technology, against the 55nm of previous Graphics Cards, it supports DirectX 10 and the Shaders now called Shader Processing Units have been redesigned and do all the Graphical work of Pixel and Vertex Shaders.

It equips a GPU codenamed Cedar PRO which has 1 Compute Units activated and thus offers 80 Shader Processing Units, 8 TMUs and 4 ROPs. The Central Unit Operates at 650MHz.

The GPU accesses a 512MB frame buffer of GDDR3, through a 64-bit memory interface. The memory clock operates at 800MHz. The size of the frame buffer is adequate.

DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for Crossfire, Eyefinity, Stream Acceleration, PowerPlay and other technologies.

Cooling Solution
The Cooling Solution consists of a Single-Fan.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 18W, it requires at least a 250W PSU and it relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power, meaning no extra connectors are required.

Radeon HD 8350 (OEM) is a Direct Rebrand of Radeon HD 6350 and performs exactly like it.
Gaming benchmarks indicate its performance is extremely limited and even the older GeForce GT 220 is still faster.

System Suggestions
We recommend a modest processor (Intel Celeron) and 2GB of RAM for a system with Radeon HD 8350 (OEM).
Quadro FX 3450 is a professional GPU whose purpose is for professional applications such as Adobe Photoshop and video editing software.
It's based on the NV41 GL Chip offering 12 Pixel Shaders. Compared to Quadro FX 3400 it features less Pixel Shaders but they are higher clocked and the memory bandwidth is considerably higher to the 1000MHz memory clock. Its performance, should be a little higher but still on level with the predecessor though consuming less power, due to the lower amount of Pixel Shaders.
