Radeon HD 6470M Vs Intel HD graphics 3000

AMD Radeon HD 6470M turns out to be better than the Intel’s HD graphics 3000 as is evident in a number of benchmarks as well as the gaming performance. The HD Graphics 3000 is an integrated graphics while the Radeon HD 6470M is a discrete graphics.

The only advantage that HD graphics 3000 is that – it may potentially save few bucks in the overall system cost and will potentially consume lower overall system power. So, if your requirements are not heavily tilted towards fast moving gaming, you should be fine with HD graphics 3000.

The comparison of the HD 6470M with HD Graphics 3000 should turn out to be similar to the comparison of the Radeon HD 6490M Vs Intel HD graphics 3000. The HD 6490M is same as  the 6470M with additional support for GDDR5 in addition to the DDR3. The GDDR5 may or may not be implemented in the system. The Radeon HD 6490M will be slightly faster if it GDDR5 is implemented in place of DDR3.
