In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the HD 8350 and the GeForce 210 are equal.

The HD 8350 has a 61 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the GeForce 210. This results in the HD 8350 providing 0.5 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 HD 8350 has a 61 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce 210 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the HD 8350 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 over three years more recently than the GeForce 210, 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 210 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 Radeon HD 8350 (OEM) and the GeForce 210 have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The HD 8350 has 8.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce 210, which means that the memory performance of the HD 8350 is marginally better than the GeForce 210.

The Radeon HD 8350 (OEM) has 80 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 210 has 16. However, the actual shader performance of the HD 8350 is 26 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 210 is 22. The HD 8350 having 4 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 GeForce 210.

The Radeon HD 8350 (OEM) requires 25 Watts to run and the GeForce 210 requires 31 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 GeForce 210. The GeForce 210 requires 6 Watts more than the HD 8350 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GeForce 210 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.

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).
Overview
GeForce 210 is an Entry-Level Graphics Card based on the Second Revision of the Tesla Architecture.

Architecture
Tesla was NVIDIA's First Unified Shader Architecture.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed GT218-300-B1 which has 2 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 16 Shader Processing Units, 8 TMUs and 4 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 589MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 512MB frame buffer of DDR2, through a 64-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 500MHz.

Features
DirectX 10.1 Support (10.0 Hardware Default) and support for NVIDIA PureVideo HD Technology, Dual-stream Hardware Acceleration, PhysX, CUDA, HybridPower and other technologies.

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

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 31W, it relies entirely on the PCI Slot for Power meaning no extra connectors are required.

Performance
Gaming benchmarks put its performance considerably below a Radeon HD 4550, meaning even the older GeForce 9400 GT is faster.
