In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 4550 v2 are noticeably better than the AMD Radeon HD 8350 (OEM).

The HD 8350 has a 50 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the HD 4550. This results in the HD 8350 providing 0.4 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 8350 has a 50 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD 4550 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the HD 8350 providing 0.2 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 HD 8350 was released over three years more recently than the HD 4550, and so the HD 8350 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the HD 4550 when running the latest games.

The Radeon HD 4550 v2 and the Radeon HD 8350 (OEM) have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The memory bandwidth of the Radeon HD 4550 v2 and the Radeon HD 8350 (OEM) are the same, which means the HD 4550 and the HD 8350 have equal limitations when it comes to graphical data transfer.

Both the Radeon HD 4550 v2 and the Radeon HD 8350 (OEM) have 80 Shader Processing Units. While the two GPUs have the same number of SPUs, the actual performance delivered by the HD 4550 is 34 and by the HD 8350 is 26. Knowing that the shader performance of the HD 4550 is superior, it is not necessary to examine the GPUs' respective Texture and Pixel Fill Rates.

The HD 8350 transistor size technology is 15 nm (nanometers) smaller than the HD 4550. This means that the HD 8350 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the HD 4550. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the HD 8350 should consume less power than the HD 4550.

The Radeon HD 4550 v2 requires 25 Watts to run and the Radeon HD 8350 (OEM) requires 25 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the HD 4550 and a PSU with at least 250 Watts for the HD 8350. The two GPUs require the same amount of wattage to run. As such, there is no need to worry about which will more significantly affect your yearly electricity bills.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Radeon HD 4550 v2 is a Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the R700 Architecture.

R700 was AMD's Second Unified Shader Architecture.
It has 1 Compute Units Activated and offers 80 Shader Processing Units, 8 TMUs and 4 ROPs.

The central unit runs at 600MHz.

Memory: Speed
The GPU is equipped with GDDR3 and Accesses the Frame Buffer through a 64-bit Memory Interface. The Memory Clock Operates at 800MHz.

Memory: Frame Buffer
The GPU can fill up a Memory Pool of up to 512MB.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 25W, it requires at least a 300W PSU and relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power, meaning no extra connectors are required.

Benchmarks Indicate Similar Performance to .

System Suggestions
Radeon HD 4550 v2 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1024x768. We recommend a Performance Processor and 2GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
Radeon HD 8350 (OEM) is an OEM Only, entry-level Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Terascale Architecture.

Terascale was AMD's first Unified Shader Architecture. In addition to being manufactured with a 40nm Technology, against the 55nm of previous Graphics Cards, it supports DirectX 10 and the Shaders now called Shader Processing Units have been redesigned and do all the Graphical work of Pixel and Vertex Shaders.

It equips a GPU codenamed Cedar PRO which has 1 Compute Units activated and thus offers 80 Shader Processing Units, 8 TMUs and 4 ROPs. The Central Unit Operates at 650MHz.

The GPU accesses a 512MB frame buffer of GDDR3, through a 64-bit memory interface. The memory clock operates at 800MHz. The size of the frame buffer is adequate.

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

Cooling Solution
The Cooling Solution consists of a Single-Fan.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 18W, it requires at least a 250W PSU and it relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power, meaning no extra connectors are required.

Radeon HD 8350 (OEM) is a Direct Rebrand of Radeon HD 6350 and performs exactly like it.
Gaming benchmarks indicate its performance is extremely limited and even the older GeForce GT 220 is still faster.

System Suggestions
We recommend a modest processor (Intel Celeron) and 2GB of RAM for a system with Radeon HD 8350 (OEM).
