In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 8350 (OEM) are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce 7650 GS.

The HD 8350 was released over three years more recently than the GeForce 7650 GS, 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 GeForce 7650 GS 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 GeForce 7650 GS, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the HD 8350 also has superior memory performance overall.

The memory bandwidth of the Radeon HD 8350 (OEM) and the GeForce 7650 GS are the same, which means the HD 8350 and the GeForce 7650 GS have equal limitations when it comes to graphical data transfer.

The HD 8350 has 80 Shader Processing Units but the GeForce 7650 GS does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The Radeon HD 8350 (OEM) requires 25 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce 7650 GS. We would recommend a PSU with at least 250 Watts for the HD 8350 and a PSU with at least 350 Watts for the GeForce 7650 GS. The GeForce 7650 GS has been recommended a PSU with 100 Watts more than the HD 8350. The difference is significant enough that the GeForce 7650 GS 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).
Nvidia GeForce 7650 GS is a powerful Mid-Range level graphics card. This card can handle games like, Batman: Arkham City, Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, The Elder Scrolls V:Skyrim on low in a pretty smooth rate. Overall this card is a great. Recommended for a non-hardcore gamer.
