In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the HD 8350 and the GeForce 605 1GB are equal.

The HD 8350 has a 127 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the GeForce 605 1GB. This results in the HD 8350 providing 1 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 127 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce 605 1GB and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the HD 8350 providing 0.5 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 GeForce 605 1GB, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance 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 GeForce 605 1GB has 512 MB more video memory than the HD 8350, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GeForce 605 1GB also has superior memory performance overall.

The GeForce 605 1GB has 1.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the HD 8350, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce 605 1GB is marginally better than the HD 8350.

The Radeon HD 8350 (OEM) has 80 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 605 1GB has 48. However, the actual shader performance of the HD 8350 is 26 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 605 1GB is 50. The GeForce 605 1GB having 24 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce 605 1GB delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the HD 8350.

The GeForce 605 1GB transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the HD 8350. This means that the GeForce 605 1GB is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the HD 8350. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the GeForce 605 1GB should consume less power than the HD 8350.

The Radeon HD 8350 (OEM) requires 25 Watts to run and the GeForce 605 1GB requires 25 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 605 1GB. The two GPUs require the same amount of wattage to run. As such, there is no need to worry about which will more significantly affect your yearly electricity bills.

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 605 1GB is an OEM only, Entry-Level Graphics Card based on the second revision of the Fermi Architecture.

Architecture
The Fermi Architecture is manufactured with a 40nm technology and uses a technique known as Hot Clocking: The Shaders are clocked twice as fast as the Central Unit. While this leads to a reasonable performance boost, it causes enormous amounts of energy dissipation, leading, ultimately, to a significantly higher operating temperature.
Fermi is also the first GPU architecture with fully cached memory access which increases memory performance.

GPU
It equips a GPU codenamed GF119-B1 which has 1 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 48 Shader Processing Units, 8 TMUs and 4 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 523MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is exaggerated and in no way benefits the GPU. The Memory Clock Operates at 898MHz.

Features
DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for 3D Vision Surround, PhysX, Realtime Raytracing and other technologies.

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

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 25W, it requires at least a 300W PSU and it relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power, meaning no extra connectors are required.

Performance
Gaming benchmarks put its performance on average with Radeon HD 7350.

System Suggestions
We recommend a modest processor (Intel Celeron) and 4GB of RAM for a system with GeForce 605 1GB.
