In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 6730M are significantly better than the Intel HD Graphics Mobile (Broadwell).

The Radeon HD 6730M has a 425 MHz higher core clock speed and 20 more Texture Mapping Units than the Graphics Mobile. This results in the Radeon HD 6730M providing 16.2 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 HD 6730M has a 425 MHz higher core clock speed and 6 more Render Output Units than the Graphics Mobile. This results in the Radeon HD 6730M providing 5.2 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 Graphics Mobile was released over three years more recently than the Radeon HD 6730M, and so the Graphics Mobile is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the Radeon HD 6730M when running the latest games.

The Radeon HD 6730M has 1024 MB video memory, but the Graphics Mobile does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The HD Graphics Mobile (Broadwell) has 12 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 6730M has 480. However, the actual shader performance of the Graphics Mobile is 10 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 6730M is 174. The Radeon HD 6730M having 164 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Radeon HD 6730M delivers a slightly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Graphics Mobile.

The Graphics Mobile transistor size technology is 18 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Radeon HD 6730M. This means that the Graphics Mobile is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Radeon HD 6730M.

The HD Graphics Mobile (Broadwell) requires 4 Watts to run and the Radeon HD 6730M requires 39 Watts. The Radeon HD 6730M requires 35 Watts more than the Graphics Mobile to run. The difference is significant enough that the Radeon HD 6730M may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the Graphics Mobile.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewIntel HD Graphics Mobile (Broadwell) are integrated graphics in the budget Celeron and Pentium Broadwell Mobile processors.
Their performance depends on the processor they are integrated on, as the latter defines the Base and Boost Clock, as well as on the SYSTEM RAM, which defines the operating memory clock, and whether the GPU accesses a 64-bit or 128-bit memory interface.
Best case scenario, the Intel HD Graphics Mobile (Broadwell) performs on par with Intel HD 4000 Graphics and so most modern demanding games will not be playable. Less graphically intense games will be playable at lower graphics settings.
Radeon HD 6730M is a fast-middle-class GPU based on the 40nm Terrascale 2 architecture.
It's based on the Turks Core (therefore related to Radeon HD 6670) and offers 480 Shader Processing Units, 24 TMUs and 8 ROPs on a 128-bit memory interface of standard DDR3. Its central clock runs at 725MHz and the memory clock operates at 800MHz.
Compared to Radeon HD 6750M, it's higher clocked but features half the memory bandwidth due to being paired with standard DDR3 instead of fast GDDR5. Still, benchmarks put its performance on level with Radeon HD 6750M.
Using a 720p resolution, most of today's games are only playable at medium or high settings but with fluent frame rates (35+).
