In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 750 Ti are significantly better than the AMD Radeon HD 8740 (OEM).

The GTX 750 Ti has a 220 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Texture Mapping Units than the HD 8740. This results in the GTX 750 Ti providing 15.2 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GTX 750 Ti has a 220 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD 8740 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GTX 750 Ti providing 3.5 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GTX 750 Ti was released less than a year after the HD 8740, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The Radeon HD 8740 (OEM) and the GeForce GTX 750 Ti have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GTX 750 Ti has 14.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the HD 8740, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 750 Ti is slightly better than the HD 8740.

The Radeon HD 8740 (OEM) has 512 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 750 Ti has 640. However, the actual shader performance of the HD 8740 is 348 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 750 Ti is 937. The GTX 750 Ti having 589 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 750 Ti delivers a significantly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the HD 8740.

The Radeon HD 8740 (OEM) requires 55 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 750 Ti requires 60 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the HD 8740 and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GTX 750 Ti. The GTX 750 Ti requires 5 Watts more than the HD 8740 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GTX 750 Ti to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the HD 8740.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Radeon HD 8740 (OEM) is an OEM Only, Fast-Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the First Revision of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture.

Architecture
The GCN Architecture succeeds the 40nm Terascale Architecture. In addition to being produced with a 28nm Technology, the GCN Architecture adds other Technologies that allow for energy efficiency. For example, ZeroCore Power, a long idle power saving technology, allows the Graphics Cards to shut down by itself when the Monitor is turned off.
GCN also adds Improved Anisotropic Filtering, DirectX 11 Tessellation and the Partially Resident Textures (PRT) Technology, which enables future games to utilize ultra-high resolution textures with the same performance as today's small and often repetitive textures.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed Cape Verde PRO which has 8 Compute Units activated and thus offers 512 Shader Processing Units, 32 TMUs and 16 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 800MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 256-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 1125MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 55W, it requires at least a 400W PSU and relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power, meaning no extra connectors are required.

Performance
Radeon HD 8740 (OEM) is a Direct Rebrand of Radeon HD 7750 and performs exactly like it.

System Suggestions
Radeon HD 8740 (OEM) is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1600x900. We recommend a Decent Processor (Intel Core i3 Quad Core/AMD FX Quad Core) and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
Overview
GeForce GTX 750 Ti is a performance Graphics Card based on the first variant of the Maxwell architecture.

Architecture
The first variant of the Maxwell Architecture succeeds the Kepler Architecture. Despite being also manufactured with a 28nm technology, it has an extremely large L2 Cache which allows NVIDIA to produce Graphics Cards with relatively small memory data transfer rates, without causing too much impact on the overall performance. Furthermore, the Shaders have been redesigned and are both more powerful and energy efficient.

GPU
It equips a GPU codenamed GM107-400-A2 which has 5 SM activated and thus offers 640 Shader Processing Units, 40 TMUs and 16 ROPs, on a 128-bit memory interface of fast GDDR5. The central unit runs at 1020MHz and goes up to 1085MHz, in Turbo Mode, while the memory clock operates at 1350MHz.

Features
DirectX 11.2 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for GameStream, G-SYNC, GPU Boost 2.0, GeForce Experience, PhysX and other technologies.

Cooling Solution
The Cooling Solution consists of a Single-Fan and is identical to the one seen on GeForce GTX 650. The Card is known to run very cool and has a maximum operating temperature of 95ÂșC.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 60W, it requires at least a 300W PSU and relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power.

Release Price
Pricing is identical to the one seen on its predecessors - $149.

Performance
Benchmarks indicate its performance is largely better than its predecessor's but Radeon HD 7850 and GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost Edition still offer better performance, due to their high memory bandwidth transfer rates.

System Suggestions
We recommend a strong processor (Intel Core i5 Quad Core/AMD FX Six Core) and 8GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GTX 750 Ti.
