In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GT 730 v3 Gigabyte 2GB Edition are significantly better than the AMD Radeon X850 XT.

The GT 730 was released over three years more recently than the Radeon X850 XT, 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 Radeon X850 XT when running the latest games.

The GT 730 has 1792 MB more video memory than the Radeon X850 XT, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the Radeon X850 XT has superior memory performance.

The Radeon X850 XT has 40.3 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GT 730, which means that the memory performance of the Radeon X850 XT is noticeably better than the GT 730.

The GeForce GT 730 v3 Gigabyte 2GB Edition has 96 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon X850 XT has 16. However, the actual shader performance of the GT 730 is 134 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon X850 XT is 5. The GT 730 having 129 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Radeon X850 XT performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GeForce GT 730 v3 Gigabyte 2GB Edition requires 49 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Radeon X850 XT. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 730.

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 Radeon X800 'R430'-based 110 nanometer series was introduced at the end of 2004 along with ATI's new X850 cards. The X800 was designed to replace the position X700 XT failed to secure, with 12 pipelines and a 256-bit RAM bus. The card more than surpassed the 6600GT with performance similar to that of the GeForce 6800. A close relative, the new X800 XL, was positioned to dethrone NVIDIA's GeForce 6800 GT with higher memory speeds and a full 16 pipelines to boost performance. R430 was unable to reach high clock speeds, being mainly designed to reduce the cost per GPU, and so a new top-of-the-line core was still needed. The new high-end R4x0-generation arrived with the X850 series, equipped with various core tweaks for slightly higher performance than the 'R420'-based X800 series. The 'R480'-based X850 line was available in 3 forms: the X850 Pro, the X850 XT, and the X850 XT Platinum Edition, and was built on the reliable high-performance 130 nm Low-K process.
