In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon R4 7310 are marginally better than the Intel HD i7 3840QM.

The Radeon R4 7310 has a 150 MHz higher core clock speed and 4 more Texture Mapping Units than the HD i7 3840QM. This results in the Radeon R4 7310 providing 3.8 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 R4 7310 has a 150 MHz higher core clock speed and 2 more Render Output Units than the HD i7 3840QM. This results in the Radeon R4 7310 providing 1.9 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 R4 7310 was released over three years more recently than the HD i7 3840QM, and so the Radeon R4 7310 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the HD i7 3840QM when running the latest games.

The Radeon R4 7310 and the HD i7 3840QM 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 R4 7310 and the HD i7 3840QM are the same, which means the Radeon R4 7310 and the HD i7 3840QM have equal limitations when it comes to graphical data transfer.

The Radeon R4 7310 has 128 Shader Processing Units and the HD i7 3840QM has 16. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon R4 7310 is 67 and the actual shader performance of the HD i7 3840QM is 83. The HD i7 3840QM having 16 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Radeon R4 7310 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The HD i7 3840QM transistor size technology is 6 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Radeon R4 7310. This means that the HD i7 3840QM is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Radeon R4 7310. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the HD i7 3840QM should consume less power than the Radeon R4 7310.

The Radeon R4 7310 requires 15 Watts to run and the HD i7 3840QM requires 45 Watts. The HD i7 3840QM requires 30 Watts more than the Radeon R4 7310 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the HD i7 3840QM to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the Radeon R4 7310.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewRadeon R4 7310 is an integrated Graphics Card in the APU A6-7310.

It is based on the Graphics Core Next Architecture and offers 128 Shader Processing Units, 8 TMUs and 4 ROPs. While the central unit is set at 800MHz, the memory bus-width will depend on whether or not the system's RAM is dual-channeled and the operating memory clock, on its frequency. Thus, it can be either 64-bit or 128-bit and up to 800MHz.
The Graphics Card also shares the processor's L2 Cache of 2MB. Therefore, it reduces the need to resort to its memory bandwidth.

Overall, the Graphics Card's performance depends a lot on the system configuration. Best case scenario, expect performance similar to an integrated Intel HD 4200.
The card is only suited for gaming below 720p and all modern demanding games can be played at least on low settings.
