AMD’s Radeon HD 7660G is the integrated graphics in its Trinity APU ( Accelerate Processing Unit) while the HD Graphics 4000 is the Intel’s Integrated graphics in its Ivy Bridge processors. While Intel made significant progress in terms of graphics performance when compared to the earlier Sandy Bridge’s HD Graphics 3000, it still lags behind AMD’s integrated graphics. But of course, Intel made more progress than AMD if you look at the progress between 2011 to 2012. While AMD’s Trinity did make close to 20% improvement in its graphics compared to its earlier Llano graphics, Intel took a great leap forward with 50% performance jump – though it still does not catch up with AMD, it is coming closer.
Table : Feature Differences
|Features||AMD Radeon HD 7660G||Intel HD Graphics 4000|
|Core Speed MHz||497 MHz||350 – 1350 MHz|
|Shader Speed MHz||497 MHz||350 – 1350 MHz|
AMD’s Radeon HD follows an entirely different architecture than that of the Intel’s. The number of cores and clocks are all different and it is therefore not possible to compare these just based upon the specification. The only way we could potentially compare them is by look at the bencchmark and the gaming results.
In the next post we have compared the benchmark results of these two graphics.
