In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon R7 250 v2 HIS 2GB Edition are noticeably better than the Intel UHD Graphics 630.

The R7 250 has a 650 MHz higher core clock speed and 1 more Texture Mapping Units than the UHD Graphics 630. This results in the R7 250 providing 15.9 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 R7 250 has a 650 MHz higher core clock speed and 5 more Render Output Units than the UHD Graphics 630. This results in the R7 250 providing 6.9 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 UHD Graphics 630 was released over three years more recently than the R7 250, and so the UHD Graphics 630 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the R7 250 when running the latest games.

The R7 250 has 2048 MB video memory, but the UHD Graphics 630 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The UHD Graphics 630 has 184 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon R7 250 v2 HIS 2GB Edition has 384. However, the actual shader performance of the UHD Graphics 630 is 212 and the actual shader performance of the R7 250 is 343. The R7 250 having 131 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the R7 250 delivers a noticeably smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the UHD Graphics 630.

The UHD Graphics 630 transistor size technology is 14 nm (nanometers) smaller than the R7 250. This means that the UHD Graphics 630 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the R7 250.

The UHD Graphics 630 requires 15 Watts to run and the Radeon R7 250 v2 HIS 2GB Edition requires 65 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the R7 250, but we do not have a recommended PSU wattage for the UHD Graphics 630. The R7 250 requires 50 Watts more than the UHD Graphics 630 to run. The difference is significant enough that the R7 250 may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the UHD Graphics 630.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview Intel UHD Graphics 630 are Integrated Graphics in some of Intel's Coffee Lake Processors. Architecture The Coffee Lake Architecture succeeds the Kaby Lake Architecture and aims for increased CPU and Graphics Performance, within the same Power Requirements. It includes support for DirectX 12.1, OpenCL 2.1 and OpenGL 4.6, as well as DDR4 Memory Support. GPU The central unit initially runs at 300MHz and goes up to 1150MHz in Turbo Mode. The GPU Codenamed GT2 offers 184 Shader Processing Units, 23 TMUs and 3 ROPs Memory Speed The operating memory clock depends on which speed the System's RAM is running and which memory type is installed and is ultimately limited by the highest operating speed that the processor supports. Depending on whether or not the System's RAM is Dual-Channeled, it can access either a 64-bit or 128-bit Memory Interface. Memory Frame Buffer The GPU Shares the System's RAM which varies according to the System. The GPU may reserve up to 1.7GB.Radeon R7 250 HIS 2GB Edition is a special edition of the middle-class Radeon R7 250.
This edition is essentially a reference card with no overclock out of the box and thus there is no performance boost over the standard edition.
