In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 8350 (OEM) are significantly better than the Intel HD Graphics 2000 Desktop.

The Graphics 2000 has a 200 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD 8350, but the HD 8350 has 7 more Texture Mapping Units than the Graphics 2000. As a result, the HD 8350 exhibits a 4.3 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the Graphics 2000. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The Graphics 2000 has a 200 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD 8350, but the HD 8350 has 3 more Render Output Units than the Graphics 2000. As a result, the HD 8350 exhibits a 1.7 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the Graphics 2000. 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 a year more recently than the Graphics 2000, and so the HD 8350 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the Graphics 2000.

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 HD 8350 has 512 MB video memory, but the Graphics 2000 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The HD Graphics 2000 Desktop has 6 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 8350 (OEM) has 80. However, the actual shader performance of the Graphics 2000 is 32 and the actual shader performance of the HD 8350 is 26. The Graphics 2000 having 6 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Graphics 2000 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the HD 8350.

The Graphics 2000 transistor size technology is 8 nm (nanometers) smaller than the HD 8350. This means that the Graphics 2000 is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the HD 8350. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the Graphics 2000 should consume less power than the HD 8350.

The HD Graphics 2000 Desktop requires 95 Watts to run and the Radeon HD 8350 (OEM) requires 25 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the Graphics 2000 and a PSU with at least 250 Watts for the HD 8350. The Graphics 2000 requires 70 Watts more than the HD 8350 to run. The difference is significant enough that the Graphics 2000 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the HD 8350.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Intel HD Graphics 2000 Desktop are Integrated Graphics in some of Intel's Desktop Sandy Bridge Processors.

The Sandy Bridge GT1 Core includes support for DirectX 10.1 and OpenGL 3.1. Additionally, it also offers better Video Encoding and Decoding Performance, when compared to its Predecessor.

It equips a GPU Codenamed GT2 which offers 6 Shader Processing Units, 1 TMUs and 1 ROPs. The Central Unit Initially Runs at 850MHz and goes up to 1350MHz, in Turbo Mode.

The GPU Shares the System's RAM which varies from System to System. Typically, the GPU reserves 1.7GB. Depending on whether or not the system's RAM is Dual-Channeled, it can access either a 64-bit or 128-bit memory interface. The operating memory clock also depends on which speed the System's RAM is running and is limited by the highest operating speed that the Processor supports. In this case, it is 667MHz.
It is then obvious the Memory Bandwidth depends on a lot of factors and thus this Graphics Card performance may vary heavily from system to system.

The Most Powerful Variant Offers Performance similar to a dedicated GeForce 8400 GS.

System Suggestions
We recommend 4GB of RAM for a system with Intel HD Graphics 2000 Desktop.
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).
