In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 7770 Sapphire GHz OC Edition are significantly better than the AMD Radeon R7 350 (OEM).

The HD 7770 has a 150 MHz higher core clock speed and 16 more Texture Mapping Units than the R7 350. This results in the HD 7770 providing 22 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 HD 7770 has a 150 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Render Output Units than the R7 350. This results in the HD 7770 providing 10.4 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 R7 350 was released over three years more recently than the HD 7770, and so the R7 350 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the HD 7770 when running the latest games.

The Radeon R7 350 (OEM) and the Radeon HD 7770 Sapphire GHz OC Edition have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The HD 7770 has 6.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the R7 350, which means that the memory performance of the HD 7770 is marginally better than the R7 350.

The Radeon R7 350 (OEM) has 384 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 7770 Sapphire GHz OC Edition has 640. However, the actual shader performance of the R7 350 is 343 and the actual shader performance of the HD 7770 is 626. The HD 7770 having 283 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the HD 7770 delivers a noticeably smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the R7 350.

The Radeon R7 350 (OEM) requires 65 Watts to run and the Radeon HD 7770 Sapphire GHz OC Edition requires 80 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the R7 350 and a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the HD 7770. The HD 7770 requires 15 Watts more than the R7 350 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the HD 7770 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the R7 350.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Radeon R5 350 (OEM) is an OEM only, Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the second revision of the Graphics Core Next Architecture.

The GCN 1.1 revision of the Graphics Core Next Architecture adds new important technologies and is largely oriented for energy efficiency. New technologies such as PowerTune and TrueAudio are the biggest additions as well as DirectX 11.2 support.

It equips a GPU codenamed Oland XT previously used on Radeon R5 250. It offers 384 Shader Processing Units, 24 TMUs and 8 ROPs. The central unit runs at 1000MHz and goes up to 1050MHz, in Turbo Mode.

The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is exaggerated and in no way benefits the GPU. The Memory Clock Operates at 1125MHz.

DirectX 12.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for Crossfire, Mantle, PowerTune, Eyefinity, ZeroCore, HD3D, App Acceleration and other technologies.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 65W, it requires at least a 450W PSU and relies entirely on the PCI slot for power.

Radeon R5 350 (OEM) is a direct rebrand of Radeon R7 250. Therefore, it offers exactly the same performance.

System Suggestions
We recommend a Strong Dual Core Processor (Intel Core i5 Quad Core/AMD FX Quad Core) and 8GB of RAM for a system with Radeon R5 350 (OEM).
Radeon HD 7770 Sapphire GHz OC Edition is a special edition of the fast-middle-class Radeon HD 7770. See the standard version for more information about it.
The differences include increased memory and core clocks, from 1125MHz to 1250MHz and from 1000MHz to 1150MHz, respectively. A new quiet and efficient cooling system is also available.
Benchmarks indicate a 9,5% performance boost when compared to the standard Radeon HD 7770.
Benchmarks indicate that the most demanding games (e.g. Metro 2033) will run at the highest settings but not at extreme resolutions (due to the limited memory size).
