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

The Graphics Desktop 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 Desktop. As a result, the HD 8350 exhibits a 4.3 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the Graphics Desktop. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The Graphics Desktop 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 Desktop. As a result, the HD 8350 exhibits a 1.7 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the Graphics Desktop. 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 Desktop, 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 Desktop.

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 Desktop does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The HD Graphics Desktop (Sandy Bridge) has 6 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 8350 (OEM) has 80. However, the actual shader performance of the Graphics Desktop is 24 and the actual shader performance of the HD 8350 is 26. The HD 8350 having 2 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Graphics Desktop performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The Graphics Desktop transistor size technology is 18 nm (nanometers) smaller than the HD 8350. This means that the Graphics Desktop is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the HD 8350. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the Graphics Desktop should consume less power than the HD 8350.

The HD Graphics Desktop (Sandy Bridge) requires 65 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 Graphics Desktop. The Graphics Desktop requires 40 Watts more than the HD 8350 to run. The difference is significant enough that the Graphics Desktop may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the HD 8350.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewIntel HD Graphics Desktop (Sandy Bridge) are integrated graphics in the budget Celeron and Pentium Sandy Bridge Desktop processors.
Their performance depends on the processor they are integrated on, as the latter defines the Base and Boost Clock, as well as on the SYSTEM RAM, which defines the operating memory clock, and whether the GPU accesses a 64-bit or 128-bit memory interface.
More details to be added soon.
Overview
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).
