In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GT 730 v3 Gigabyte 2GB Edition are noticeably better than the AMD FireGL V7100.

The GT 730 was released over three years more recently than the FireGL V7100, and so the GT 730 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the FireGL V7100 when running the latest games.

The GT 730 has 1792 MB more video memory than the FireGL V7100, 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 memory bandwidth of the GeForce GT 730 v3 Gigabyte 2GB Edition and the FireGL V7100 are the same, which means the GT 730 and the FireGL V7100 have equal limitations when it comes to graphical data transfer.

The GeForce GT 730 v3 Gigabyte 2GB Edition has 96 Shader Processing Units and the FireGL V7100 has 6. However, the actual shader performance of the GT 730 is 134 and the actual shader performance of the FireGL V7100 is 2. The GT 730 having 132 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GT 730 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the FireGL V7100.

The GeForce GT 730 v3 Gigabyte 2GB Edition requires 49 Watts to run but there is no entry for the FireGL V7100. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 730 and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the FireGL V7100. 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 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.
The FireGL line is designed for multimedia content creation programs, such as 3DS Max, mechanical engineering design software such as Solidworks, and civil engineering architectural software such as Chief Architect, whereas Radeon counterparts are suited towards video games. FireGL drivers were built with maximum image quality and pixel precision, with CAD specific functionalities such as the recently introduced AutoDetection Technology to tune the parameters inside the driver to achieve maximum performance for predefined list of software. However, because the drivers are also based on the Catalyst drivers made for the Radeon line, it makes them suitable for gaming, at the expense of probable compatibility issues with the very latest games due to the age of the drivers, with FireGL cards in theory pushing more data than their Radeon gaming counterparts
The ATI FireGL range of video cards, renamed to FirePro 3D in late 2008, is the series specifically for CAD (Computer Aided Design) and DCC (Digital Content Creation) software, usually found in workstations.
