In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 750 Palit StormX OC 1GB Edition are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 740 v2.

The GTX 750 has a 92 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the GT 740. This results in the GTX 750 providing 2.9 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 92 MHz higher core clock speed than the GT 740 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GTX 750 providing 1.5 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 GT 740 was released less than a year after the GTX 750, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The GeForce GT 740 v2 and the GeForce GTX 750 Palit StormX OC 1GB Edition 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 has 1.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GT 740, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 750 is marginally better than the GT 740.

The GeForce GT 740 v2 has 384 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 750 Palit StormX OC 1GB Edition has 512. However, the actual shader performance of the GT 740 is 381 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 750 is 804. The GTX 750 having 423 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 750 delivers a noticeably smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GT 740.

The GeForce GT 740 v2 requires 64 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 750 Palit StormX OC 1GB Edition requires 55 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GT 740 and a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GTX 750. The GT 740 requires 9 Watts more than the GTX 750 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GT 740 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GTX 750.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GT 740 v2 is a Middle-Class 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 GK107-425-A2 which has 2 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 384 Shader Processing Units, 32 TMUs and 16 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 993MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 1250MHz.

Features
DirectX 12.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for CUDA, OpenCL, DirectCompute, 3D Vision Surround, PhysX, Realtime Raytracing and other technologies

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 64W, it requires at least a 400W PSU and it relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power, meaning no extra connectors are required.

Performance
GeForce GT 740 v2 is essentially a slower GeForce GTX 650.
Gaming benchmarks indicate its performance is not too far from the older GeForce GTX 650.

System Suggestions
We recommend a modest processor (Intel Core i3) and 8GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GT 740 v2.
GeForce GTX 750 Palit StormX OC 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 1085MHz, while the Turbo Boost is now of 1163MHz, instead of 1085MHz. The operating memory clock was increased to 1275MHz.
Further overclocking can be achieved easily, as the GPU has great OC potential.
Benchmarks indicate its performance is around 6% better than the reference NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 and thus this card is slightly faster than Radeon R7 260X.
