In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro FX 4500 are significantly better than the AMD Radeon HD 8350 (OEM).

The HD 8350 was released over three years more recently than the Quadro FX 4500, 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 4500 when running the latest games.

The Radeon HD 8350 (OEM) and the Quadro FX 4500 have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The Quadro FX 4500 has 24 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the HD 8350, which means that the memory performance of the Quadro FX 4500 is slightly better than the HD 8350.

The Radeon HD 8350 (OEM) has 80 Shader Processing Units and the Quadro FX 4500 has 8. However, the actual shader performance of the HD 8350 is 26 and the actual shader performance of the Quadro FX 4500 is 4. The HD 8350 having 22 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Quadro FX 4500 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The Radeon HD 8350 (OEM) requires 25 Watts to run and the Quadro FX 4500 requires 109 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 250 Watts for the HD 8350 and a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the Quadro FX 4500. The Quadro FX 4500 requires 84 Watts more than the HD 8350 to run. The difference is significant enough that the Quadro FX 4500 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.

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.

GPU
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.

Memory
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.

Features
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.

Performance
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 Quadro line of GPU cards emerged in an effort at market segmentation by NVIDIA. In introducing Quadro, NVIDIA was able to charge a premium for essentially the same graphics hardware in professional markets, and direct resources to properly serve the needs of those markets. To differentiate their offerings, NVIDIA used driver software and firmware to enable features vital to segments of the workstation market; e.g., high performance anti-aliased lines and two-sided lighting were reserved for the Quadro product. In addition, improved support through a certified driver program was put in place. These features were of little value in the gaming markets that NVIDIA's products already sold to, but prevented high end customers from using the less expensive products. This practice continues even today although some products use higher capacity faster memory.
