In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GT 730 v3 Gigabyte 2GB Edition are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 620 PNY PCIe 1GB Edition.

The GT 730 and the GT 620 have both the same core clock speed and the same Texture Fill Rate. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GT 730 and the GT 620 have both the same core clock speed and the same Pixel Fill Rate. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GT 730 was released over a year more recently than the GT 620, and so the GT 730 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GT 620.

The GT 730 has 1024 MB more video memory than the GT 620, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GT 730 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GT 730 has 20.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GT 620, which means that the memory performance of the GT 730 is slightly better than the GT 620.

Both the GeForce GT 730 v3 Gigabyte 2GB Edition and the GeForce GT 620 PNY PCIe 1GB Edition have 96 Shader Processing Units. The two GPUs are based on different architectures, but deliver an equivalent shader performance. To compare, we must continue to look at the memory bandwidth, Texture and Pixel Rates. In this case, overall, the GT 730 has slightly better performance.

The GeForce GT 730 v3 Gigabyte 2GB Edition requires 49 Watts to run and the GeForce GT 620 PNY PCIe 1GB Edition requires 30 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 730 and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 620. The GT 730 requires 19 Watts more than the GT 620 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GT 730 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GT 620.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce GT 730 v3 Gigabyte 2GB Edition is a special edition of the middle-class GeForce GT 730 v3.

This Edition comes with a special cooling solution which keeps the GPU cooler under load and no overclock out of the box.

Performance-wise, it's as fast as the reference GeForce GT 730 v3.
Overview
GeForce GT 620 PNY PCIe 1GB Edition is a special edition of NVIDIA's Entry-Level GeForce GT 620, created by PNY.

Overclock: Central Unit
The Central Unit runs at the same speed.

Overclock: Memory Clock
The Operating Memory Clock runs at 535MHz while the Frame Buffer remains the same: 1GB. This is a gimmick and in no way benefits the GPU.

Cooling Solution
The Cooling System remains the same.

Performance
Without Overclocking Out of The Box, GeForce GT 620 PNY PCIe 1GB Edition is as fast as the reference GeForce GT 620.
