Method 1

Html.Action() – Outputs string

Html.RenderAction() – Renders directly to response stream

If the action returns a large amount of HTML, then rendering directly to the response stream provides better performance than outputting a string.

Method 2

The difference between the two is that
Html.RenderAction will render the
result directly to the Response (which
is more efficient if the action
returns a large amount of HTML)
whereas Html.Action returns a string
with the result.
