In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon X1650 PRO are noticeably better than the AMD Radeon HD 8350 (OEM).

The HD 8350 was released over three years more recently than the X1650 PRO, 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 X1650 PRO when running the latest games.

The HD 8350 has 256 MB more video memory than the X1650 PRO, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, the overall memory performance is about the same.

The X1650 PRO has 9.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the HD 8350, which means that the memory performance of the X1650 PRO is marginally better than the HD 8350.

The Radeon X1650 PRO has 12 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 8350 (OEM) has 80. However, the actual shader performance of the X1650 PRO is 5 and the actual shader performance of the HD 8350 is 26. The HD 8350 having 21 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the X1650 PRO performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The Radeon X1650 PRO requires 44 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 X1650 PRO. The X1650 PRO requires 19 Watts more than the HD 8350 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the X1650 PRO to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the HD 8350.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewRadeon X1650 PRO is a middle-class GPU based on the 80nm variant of the R500 architecture.
It's based on the RV535 Core and offers 12 Pixel Shaders, 8 TMUs and 8 ROPs, on a 128-bit of standard GDDR3. The central unit runs at 600MHz and the memory clock operates at up to 700MHz.
It should perform considerably better on today's modern games than Radeon X1650 GT thanks to the extra video memory and higher shading power.
Some of today's games might be playable at medium settings although the low preset will have to be used on most. As it's not based on a Shader-Unified architecture, both DirectX 10 & 11 games aren't supported.
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).
