In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GT 440 Gainward 1GB Edition are noticeably better than the AMD Radeon HD 3800 series.

The HD 3800 has no core clock speed set, so any comparison between Texture and Pixel Fill Rates is not currently possible.

The GT 440 was released over three years more recently than the HD 3800, and so the GT 440 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the HD 3800 when running the latest games.

The GT 440 has 512 MB more video memory than the HD 3800, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GT 440 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GT 440 has 51.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the HD 3800, which means that the memory performance of the GT 440 is much better than the HD 3800.

The GeForce GT 440 Gainward 1GB Edition has 96 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 3800 series has 320. However, the actual shader performance of the GT 440 is 156 and the actual shader performance of the HD 3800 is 0. The GT 440 having 156 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GT 440 delivers a significantly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the HD 3800.

The GT 440 transistor size technology is 15 nm (nanometers) smaller than the HD 3800. This means that the GT 440 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the HD 3800.

The GeForce GT 440 Gainward 1GB Edition requires 65 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Radeon HD 3800 series. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 440.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GT 440 Gainward 1GB Edition is a special edition of NVIDIA's middle-class GeForce GT 440, created by Gainward.

Overclock Out of The Box
The Clock Frequencies of both Central Unit and Operating Memory Clock Remain the Same.

Cooling Solution
The Cooling System remains the same.

Without Overclocking Out of The Box, GeForce GT 440 Gainward 1GB Edition is as fast as the reference GeForce GT 440.
Radeon HD 3800 Series is not a GPU but instead a combination between Radeon HD 3830, Radeon HD 3850 and Radeon HD 3870 whose rank is a balance between the three and that exists for System Requirements purposes only.
