In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon R7 M265 are very slightly better than the Nvidia GeForce 920M 2GB.

The Radeon R7 M265 has a 225 MHz higher core clock speed but 8 fewer Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce 920M 2GB. The lower TMU count doesn't matter, though, as altogether the Radeon R7 M265 manages to provide 0.8 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 Radeon R7 M265 has a 225 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce 920M 2GB and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the Radeon R7 M265 providing 1.8 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 GeForce 920M 2GB was released over a year more recently than the Radeon R7 M265, and so the GeForce 920M 2GB is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the Radeon R7 M265.

The GeForce 920M 2GB and the Radeon R7 M265 have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The Radeon R7 M265 has 17.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce 920M 2GB, which means that the memory performance of the Radeon R7 M265 is slightly better than the GeForce 920M 2GB.

Both the GeForce 920M 2GB and the Radeon R7 M265 have 384 Shader Processing Units. While the two GPUs have the same number of SPUs, the actual performance delivered by the GeForce 920M 2GB is 366 and by the Radeon R7 M265 is 269. Knowing that the shader performance of the GeForce 920M 2GB is superior, it is not necessary to examine the GPUs' respective Texture and Pixel Fill Rates.

The GeForce 920M 2GB requires 25 Watts to run and the Radeon R7 M265 requires 35 Watts. The Radeon R7 M265 requires 10 Watts more than the GeForce 920M 2GB to run. The difference is not significant enough for the Radeon R7 M265 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GeForce 920M 2GB.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce 920M 2GB is an Entry-Level Mobile Graphics Card based on the second revision of the Kepler Architecture.

This Graphics Card Equips the Kepler GK208 GPU which is essentially a power optimized version of the GK107 GPU. Whereas it still has a count of 2 Stream Multiprocessors, the bus-width has been cut in half to allow for even a smaller power consumption and consequently a cooler operating temperature.
Additionally, the GK208 GPU allows the Central Unit to reach a significant higher frequency, thanks to the Kepler Boost 2.0 Technology. The better the laptop's cooling system, the higher the frequency.

It equips a GPU Codenamed GK208-N16V-GM which has 2 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 384 Shader Processing Units, 16 TMUs and 8 ROPs. The Central Unit is Initially clocked at 575MHz and goes up to 954MHz, in Turbo Mode.

The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 64-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is exaggerated and in no way benefits the GPU. The Memory Clock Operates at 900MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 25W, it is suited for small laptops.

GeForce 920M 2GB is essentially a slightly faster GeForce GT 735M and offers more or less comparable performance.

System Suggestions
We recommend a Modest Processor and 4GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GT 920M 2GB.
Radeon R7 M265 is a middle-class-level graphics card based on the second revision of the Graphics Core Next architecture.
It offers a core codenamed Marts XT that packs 384 Shader Processing Units, 24 TMUs and 8 ROPs, on a 128-bit memory interface of DDR3. While the central unit runs at 800MHz and goes up to 825MHz, in Turbo Mode, the memory clock operates at 1000MHz. The regular version should offer 2GB of video memory but expect to see gimmicks of up to 4GB.
Technically R7 M265 is just a higher-clocked Radeon HD 8750M and thus it should be able to run all of 2014's games at medium or high settings, using a 720p resolution.
This card should be paired with a decent Dual Core Processor at least 8GB of RAM.
