The classes assigned for these three GPUs are based on their performance and dedicated devices for which they are designed for. For instance; the high-end 7900M is designed for desktop replacements and gaming laptops to enjoy excellent gaming and graphics performance. While on the other hand; the rest of the two are designed for such class who don’t bother with the GPU performance except the battery life; so these two are basically built for long battery performance.
If you look at the common features of the three GPUs you will find that they are sporting :
