Radeon HD 7690M 

Released December, 2011
  • 725 MHz
  • 1 GB DDR3
6.8 Out of 10

Combined with AMD's ZeroCore and Power Gating technology, the HD 7000M series is setting up to be a very power efficient platform.

We expect the new "Mars" parts to be more power efficient than the outgoing Thames/Turks cores, thanks to the shrink to a 28nm process.

AMD Reveals First Mobile Radeon M200 Parts & Rebadges

by Ryan Smith |
In recent years this has especially been the case for laptop/mobile graphics thanks to the larger volume and higher levels of integration as found on those parts, though this does have the unfortunate side effect of meaning GPU announcements get caught up in the deluge of announcements coming out of CES.
Moving on to our second confirmed product, we have a new low end SKU called the R5 M230.
AMD’s Kaveri APUs would feature the latest core architecture along with enhanced GCN graphics on a single die package.
This means that higher frequency DDR3 memory just might come in handy with Kaveri APUs to unleash the full potential of the graphics core.

Nvidia announces five new Geforce 700M GPUs

by Slobodan Simic |
It is not clear how GT 740M ends up clocked higher than the GT 745M but it might have something to do with the maximum Boost.
All five new GPUs will feature Nvidia GPU Boost 2.0, Optimus and Nvidia Geforce Experience technologies.
Boost Clock allows the GPU to turbo up to a higher clockspeed so long as the GPU is under its power and temperature limits, allowing AMD to scrape every bit of thermal headroom from their GPUs.
All of these GPUs are based on the Heathrow GPU (desktop name: Cape Verde), packing 640 Stream Processors along with 40 texture units and 16 ROPs.
