In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GT 620 Galaxy 2GB Edition are significantly better than the AMD Radeon HD 8350 (OEM).

The GT 620 has a 50 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Texture Mapping Units than the HD 8350. This results in the GT 620 providing 6 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 GT 620 has a 50 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD 8350 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GT 620 providing 0.2 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 HD 8350 was released less than a year after the GT 620, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The GT 620 has 1536 MB more video memory than the HD 8350, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the HD 8350 has superior memory performance.

The HD 8350 has 4.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GT 620, which means that the memory performance of the HD 8350 is marginally better than the GT 620.

The Radeon HD 8350 (OEM) has 80 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GT 620 Galaxy 2GB Edition has 96. However, the actual shader performance of the HD 8350 is 26 and the actual shader performance of the GT 620 is 134. The GT 620 having 108 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GT 620 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the HD 8350.

The Radeon HD 8350 (OEM) requires 25 Watts to run and the GeForce GT 620 Galaxy 2GB Edition requires 49 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 250 Watts for the HD 8350 and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 620. The GT 620 requires 24 Watts more than the HD 8350 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GT 620 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than 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).
GeForce GT 620 Galaxy 2GB Edition is a special edition of NVIDIA's Entry-Level GeForce GT 620, created by Galaxy.

Overclock: Central Unit
The Central Unit runs at the same speed.

Overclock: Memory Clock
The Operating Memory Clock runs at 500MHz and the Frame Buffer was raised to 2GB. This is a gimmick and in no way benefits the GPU.

Cooling Solution
The Cooling System remains the same.

Without Overclocking Out of The Box, GeForce GT 620 Galaxy 2GB Edition is as fast as the reference GeForce GT 620.
