In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 7290 are significantly better than the AMD Mobility Radeon X1350.

The Mobility Radeon X1350 has a 139 MHz higher core clock speed than the Radeon HD 7290, but the Radeon HD 7290 has 4 more Texture Mapping Units than the Mobility Radeon X1350. As a result, the Radeon HD 7290 exhibits a 0.5 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the Mobility Radeon X1350. Neither of these GPUs support DirectX 10 or higher, so Texture Rate holds more weight than when comparing more modern GPUs.

The Mobility Radeon X1350 has a 139 MHz higher core clock speed than the Radeon HD 7290 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the Mobility Radeon X1350 providing 0.6 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 7290 was released over three years more recently than the Mobility Radeon X1350, and so the Radeon HD 7290 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the Mobility Radeon X1350 when running the latest games.

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 Mobility Radeon X1350 has 128 MB video memory, but the Radeon HD 7290 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The Radeon HD 7290 has 80 Shader Processing Units and the Mobility Radeon X1350 has 4. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 7290 is 16 and the actual shader performance of the Mobility Radeon X1350 is 1. The Radeon HD 7290 having 15 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Radeon HD 7290 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Mobility Radeon X1350.

The Radeon HD 7290 transistor size technology is 60 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Mobility Radeon X1350. This means that the Radeon HD 7290 is expected to run massively cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Mobility Radeon X1350. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the Radeon HD 7290 should consume less power than the Mobility Radeon X1350.

The Radeon HD 7290 requires 9 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Mobility Radeon X1350.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Radeon HD 7290 is an Integrated Graphics Card, on the APU C-70, based on the second revision of the Terascale 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.

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 Initially Runs at 280MHz and goes up to 400MHz, in Turbo Mode.

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.

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

Radeon HD 7290 is a direct re-brand of Radeon HD 6290.
Gaming benchmarks put its performance on level with the older Radeon HD 6290.

System Suggestions
We recommend 4GB of RAM for a system with Radeon HD 7290.
Mobility Radeon X1350 is at essence a higher-clocked Mobility Radeon X1300. Beware that this Graphics Card is based on a NON-Shader Unified architecture and thus DirectX 10 and forth games aren't supported, not even via software.
Its performance, extremely puny, is only capable of running 2005 (and before) games fluently.
