In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon X1800 GTO˛ are significantly better than the AMD Radeon HD 8350 (OEM).

The HD 8350 was released over three years more recently than the Radeon X1800 GTO˛, 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 Radeon X1800 GTO˛ when running the latest games.

The Radeon X1800 GTO˛ and the Radeon HD 8350 (OEM) have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The Radeon X1800 GTO˛ has 18.9 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the HD 8350, which means that the memory performance of the Radeon X1800 GTO˛ is slightly better than the HD 8350.

The Radeon X1800 GTO˛ has 12 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 8350 (OEM) has 80. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon X1800 GTO˛ is 4 and the actual shader performance of the HD 8350 is 26. The HD 8350 having 22 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Radeon X1800 GTO˛ performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The Radeon X1800 GTO˛ requires 48 Watts to run and the Radeon HD 8350 (OEM) requires 25 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 250 Watts for the HD 8350, but we do not have a recommended PSU wattage for the Radeon X1800 GTO˛. The Radeon X1800 GTO˛ requires 23 Watts more than the HD 8350 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the Radeon X1800 GTO˛ to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the HD 8350.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewRadeon X1800 GTO˛ is a variant of the middle-class Radeon X1800 GTO that features a frame buffer twice as big which should prove useful for today's modern games. However, at it's time of release, it barely made any difference.Overview
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).
