In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 7510M are marginally better than the Intel HD i7 3840QM.

The HD i7 3840QM has a 200 MHz higher core clock speed than the Radeon HD 7510M, but the Radeon HD 7510M has 16 more Texture Mapping Units than the HD i7 3840QM. As a result, the Radeon HD 7510M exhibits a 6.4 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the HD i7 3840QM. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The HD i7 3840QM has a 200 MHz higher core clock speed than the Radeon HD 7510M, but the Radeon HD 7510M has 6 more Render Output Units than the HD i7 3840QM. As a result, the Radeon HD 7510M exhibits a 2.3 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the HD i7 3840QM. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The HD i7 3840QM was released less than a year after the Radeon HD 7510M, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The Radeon HD 7510M has 1024 MB video memory, but the HD i7 3840QM does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The HD i7 3840QM has 16 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 7510M has 400. However, the actual shader performance of the HD i7 3840QM is 83 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 7510M is 90. The Radeon HD 7510M having 7 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Radeon HD 7510M delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the HD i7 3840QM.

The HD i7 3840QM transistor size technology is 18 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Radeon HD 7510M. This means that the HD i7 3840QM is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Radeon HD 7510M. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the HD i7 3840QM should consume less power than the Radeon HD 7510M.

The HD i7 3840QM requires 45 Watts to run and the Radeon HD 7510M requires 11 Watts. The HD i7 3840QM requires 34 Watts more than the Radeon HD 7510M to run. The difference is significant enough that the HD i7 3840QM may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the Radeon HD 7510M.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewN/AOverview
Radeon HD 7510M is an Entry-Level Mobile Graphics Card 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 Thames LE which has 5 Compute Units activated and thus offers 400 Shader Processing Units, 20 TMUs and 8 ROPs. The Central Unit runs at 450MHz.

The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 64-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The memory clock operates at 800MHz.

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

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 11W, it is suited for smaller laptops.

Gaming benchmarks put its performance somewhat below a GeForce GT 420M.

System Suggestions
We recommend a modest processor (Intel Core i3 Mobile and 4GB of RAM for a system with Radeon HD 7510M.
