In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 675M SLI are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 745M.

The GeForce GT 745M has a 217 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 675M, but the GTX 675M has 96 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce GT 745M. As a result, the GTX 675M exhibits a 52.6 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GeForce GT 745M. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GeForce GT 745M has a 217 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 675M, but the GTX 675M has 48 more Render Output Units than the GeForce GT 745M. As a result, the GTX 675M exhibits a 26.3 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GeForce GT 745M. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GeForce GT 745M was released over a year more recently than the GTX 675M, and so the GeForce GT 745M is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GTX 675M.

The GTX 675M has 2048 MB more video memory than the GeForce GT 745M, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GTX 675M also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 675M has 163.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce GT 745M, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 675M is massively better than the GeForce GT 745M.

The GeForce GT 745M has 384 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 675M SLI has 768. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce GT 745M is 321 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 675M is 952. The GTX 675M having 631 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 675M delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce GT 745M.

The GeForce GT 745M transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 675M. This means that the GeForce GT 745M is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 675M.

The GeForce GT 745M requires 45 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 675M SLI requires 200 Watts. The GTX 675M requires 155 Watts more than the GeForce GT 745M to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 675M may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GeForce GT 745M.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GT 745M is a Fast-Middle-Class Mobile Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Kepler Architecture.

Architecture
The Kepler Architecture was NVIDIA's big step to power efficiency. Each Stream Multiprocessor (SMX) now hosts 192 Shader Processing Units - against the 48 of older Fermi Architecture, and has been redesigned being now clocked at the same speed of the Central Unit. This means they are more energy efficient and will consequently lead to cooler operating temperatures. However, it also means they are weaker. It can be said that one Fermi SMX is as fast as 2 Kepler SMXs.
Additionally, and not available in all GPUs, Kepler also introduced the Boost Clock Feature. The Boost Clock is an even higher Clock Speed activated when in gaming mode and becomes the effective speed of the GPU.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed GK107-N14P-LP which has 2 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 384 Shader Processing Units, 32 TMUs and 16 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 837MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is exaggerated and no way benefits the GPU. The Memory Clock Operates at 900MHz.

Features
DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for SLI, Kepler Boost, Optimus, CUDA, OpenCL, DirectCompute, 3D Vision Surround, PhysX, Realtime Raytracing and other technologies

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 45W, it is suited for average sized laptops.

Performance
GeForce GT 745M is essentially a fast GeForce GT 740M.
Gaming benchmarks indicate its Performance is on level with the older GeForce GT 650M.

System Suggestions
We recommend a decent processor (Intel Core i5 Mobile) and 8GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GT 745M.
GeForce GTX 675M SLI is a solution of two GeForce GTX 675M put together using NVIDIA'S SLI technology.
Check the page of GeForce GTX 675M to know more about its chip.
As usual, SLI relies a lot on proper driver support and may suffer from micro-stuttering in lower frame rates (below 30). Benchmarks indicate the performance is overall, about 35% better than a single GeForce GTX 675M performing by itself but at times (depending whether or not the 3D game supports SLI or in the graphics driver) it performed worse than a single GeForce GTX 675M.
Even the most demanding games will run at the highest settings.
