In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 750 Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 740 v2 Gainward 2GB Edition.

The GTX 750 has a 65 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the GT 740. This results in the GTX 750 providing 2.1 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 65 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 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 GT 740 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 0.2 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 Gainward 2GB Edition has 384 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 750 Gigabyte 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 786. The GTX 750 having 405 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 Gainward 2GB Edition requires 64 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce GTX 750 Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition. 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 two GPUs have been recommended a PSU with the same amount of wattage. As such, there is no need to worry about which will more significantly affect your yearly electricity bills.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce GT 740 v2 Gainward 2GB Edition is a special edition of the middle-class GeForce GT 740 v2.
This edition comes with a custom cooling solution which will not yield any performance boost, as GeForce GT 740 v2 does not benefit from the GPU Boost 2.0 technology.
Furthermore, the frame buffer was doubled to 2GB though this will not boost its performance and can be addressed as a gimmick - marketing to lure consumers into paying more for the same product.
Since it doesn't come overclocked out of the box, its performance is exactly like the reference GeForce GT 740 and thus GeForce GTX 650 is still faster.
GeForce GTX 750 Gigabyte 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 1058MHz, while the Turbo Boost is now of 1137MHz, instead of 1085MHz. The operating memory clock was left untouched.
Further overclocking can be achieved easily, as the GPU has great OC potential.
Benchmarks indicate its performance is around 4% better than the reference NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 and thus this card is slightly faster than Radeon R7 260X.
