In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 8350 (OEM) are very slightly better than the AMD FireGL V3400.

The HD 8350 was released over three years more recently than the FireGL V3400, 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 FireGL V3400 when running the latest games.

Both GPUs exhibit very poor performance, so rather than upgrading from one to the other you should consider looking at more powerful GPUs. Neither of these will be able to run the latest games in any playable way.

The HD 8350 has 384 MB more video memory than the FireGL V3400, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, the overall memory performance is about the same.

The FireGL V3400 has 3.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the HD 8350, which means that the memory performance of the FireGL V3400 is marginally better than the HD 8350.

The Radeon HD 8350 (OEM) has 80 Shader Processing Units and the FireGL V3400 has 5. However, the actual shader performance of the HD 8350 is 26 and the actual shader performance of the FireGL V3400 is 2. The HD 8350 having 24 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the HD 8350 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the FireGL V3400.

The Radeon HD 8350 (OEM) requires 25 Watts to run but there is no entry for the FireGL V3400. We would recommend a PSU with at least 250 Watts for the HD 8350 and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the FireGL V3400. The FireGL V3400 has been recommended a PSU with 50 Watts more than the HD 8350. The difference is significant enough that the FireGL V3400 may have a slight 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).
The ATI FireGL range of video cards, renamed to FirePro 3D in late 2008, is the series specifically for CAD (Computer Aided Design) and DCC (Digital Content Creation) software, usually found in workstations. The FireGL line is designed for multimedia content creation programs, such as 3DS Max, and mechanical engineering design software such as Solidworks, whereas Radeon counterparts are suited towards video games. FireGL drivers were built with maximum image quality and pixel precision, with CAD specific functionalities such as the recently introduced AutoDetection Technology to tune the parameters inside the driver to achieve maximum performance for predefined list of software. However, because the drivers are also based on the Catalyst drivers made for the Radeon line, it makes them suitable for gaming, at the expense of probable compatibility issues with the very latest games due to the age of the drivers, with FireGL cards in theory pushing more data than their Radeon gaming counterparts.
