In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GT 445M v2 are massively better than the AMD Radeon HD 7310.

The GT 445M has a 70 MHz higher core clock speed and 16 more Texture Mapping Units than the Radeon HD 7310. This results in the GT 445M providing 9.7 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 GT 445M has a 70 MHz higher core clock speed and 12 more Render Output Units than the Radeon HD 7310. This results in the GT 445M providing 7.1 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 Radeon HD 7310 was released over a year more recently than the GT 445M, and so the Radeon HD 7310 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GT 445M.

The GT 445M has 1024 MB video memory, but the Radeon HD 7310 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The GeForce GT 445M v2 has 144 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 7310 has 80. However, the actual shader performance of the GT 445M is 164 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 7310 is 20. The GT 445M having 144 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GT 445M delivers a significantly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Radeon HD 7310.

The GeForce GT 445M v2 requires 35 Watts to run and the Radeon HD 7310 requires 18 Watts. The GT 445M requires 17 Watts more than the Radeon HD 7310 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GT 445M to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the Radeon HD 7310.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GT 445M v2 is a Fast-Middle-Class Mobile Graphics Card based on the first 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 GF106-N11E-GE-A1 which has 3 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 144 Shader Processing Units, 24 TMUs and 16 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 570MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 625MHz.

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

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 35W, it is suited for 15" or larger laptops.

Performance
Gaming benchmarks put its performance almost on level with the desktop GeForce GT 450 v4.

System Suggestions
We recommend a decent processor (Intel Core i5 Mobile) and 4GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GT 445M v2.
Overview
Radeon HD 7310 is an Integrated Graphics Card, on the APU E1-1200 Dual Core based, on the second revision of the Terascale Architecture.

Architecture
The Second variant of the Terascale 2 Architecture is still manufactured with a 40nm technology and despite allowing more Stream Cores, their design remains more or less the same compared to the first variant.

GPU
It equips a GPU codenamed Loveland which has 1 Compute Units activated and thus offers 80 Shader Processing Units, 8 TMUs and 4 ROPs. The Central Unit Runs at 500MHz.

Memory
The GPU Shares the System's RAM which varies from laptop to laptop. Typically, the GPU reserves 1GB. 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 the at 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 533MHz.
It is then obvious the Memory Bandwidth depends on a lot of factors and thus Radeon HD 7310's performance may vary from system to system.

Features
DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for HD3D, Eyefinity, App Acceleration, PowerPlay and other technologies.

Performance
Gaming benchmarks put its performance somewhat below Intel's HD Graphics (Sandy Bridge).

System Suggestions
We recommend 4GB of RAM for a system with Radeon HD 7310.
