In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 750 Zotac Thunderbolt 1GB Edition are significantly better than the AMD Radeon HD 8740 (OEM).

The GTX 750 has a 429 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the HD 8740. This results in the GTX 750 providing 13.7 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 has a 429 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD 8740 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GTX 750 providing 6.9 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 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 HD 8740 has 1024 MB more video memory than the GTX 750, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the GTX 750 has superior memory performance.

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

Both the GeForce GTX 750 Zotac Thunderbolt 1GB Edition and the Radeon HD 8740 (OEM) have 512 Shader Processing Units. While the two GPUs have the same number of SPUs, the actual performance delivered by the GTX 750 is 912 and by the HD 8740 is 348. Knowing that the shader performance of the GTX 750 is superior, it is not necessary to examine the GPUs' respective Texture and Pixel Fill Rates.

The GeForce GTX 750 Zotac Thunderbolt 1GB Edition requires 55 Watts to run and the Radeon HD 8740 (OEM) requires 55 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GTX 750 and a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the HD 8740. The two GPUs require the same amount of wattage to run. As such, there is no need to worry about which will more significantly affect your yearly electricity bills.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewNote: This GFX was only released in China, as of 18.02.2014.
GeForce GTX 750 Zotac Thunderbolt 1GB Edition is a special edition of the fast-middle-class GeForce GTX 750.
This edition comes with a custom cooling cooling solution which by itself will allow a slight performance boost, as GeForce GTX 750 benefits from the GPU Boost 2.0 technology.
Furthermore, it comes overclocked out of the box in the central unit that was raised from 1020MHz to 1229MHz, while the Turbo Boost is now of 1320MHz, instead of 1085MHz. The operating memory clock was increased to 1350MHz, increasing the much needed memory bandwidth.
Further overclocking can be achieved easily, as the GPU has great OC potential.
Benchmarks indicate its performance is around 10% better than the reference NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 and thus this card is much faster than Radeon R7 260X.
Overview
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.
