Technical specs

General performance parameters such as number of shaders, GPU core base clock and boost clock speeds, manufacturing process, texturing and calculation speed. These parameters indirectly speak of performance, but for precise assessment you have to consider their benchmark and gaming test results. Note that power consumption of some graphics cards can well exceed their nominal TDP, especially when overclocked.

Video outputs and ports

Types and number of video connectors present on the reviewed GPUs. As a rule, data in this section is precise only for desktop reference ones (so-called Founders Edition for NVIDIA chips). OEM manufacturers may change the number and type of output ports, while for notebook cards availability of certain video outputs ports depends on the laptop model rather than on the card itself.

Here are some closest NVIDIA rivals to Radeon R7 M350:

Advantages of AMD Radeon R7 M350

Wider memory bus (128 vs 64 bit)

More pipelines (384 vs 24)

Advantages of Intel HD Graphics P630

12.7% better performance in benchmarks

Somewhat newer (5 August 2016 vs 5 May 2015)

Finer manufacturing process technology (14 vs 28 nm)

Lower power consumption (15W vs 35W), meaning that the rival with higher TDP might require a better cooler or other thermal solution.

So, which one is the better GPU?

Judging by the results of synthetic and gaming tests, Technical City recommends Intel HD Graphics P630, since it shows better performance.
