In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 7850 XFX Core Edition are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 440 v3.

The HD 7850 has a 266 MHz higher core clock speed and 40 more Texture Mapping Units than the GT 440. This results in the HD 7850 providing 40.7 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 HD 7850 has a 266 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Render Output Units than the GT 440. This results in the HD 7850 providing 13.2 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 HD 7850 was released over a year more recently than the GT 440, and so the HD 7850 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GT 440.

The GT 440 has 512 MB more video memory than the HD 7850, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the HD 7850 has superior memory performance.

The HD 7850 has 116.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GT 440, which means that the memory performance of the HD 7850 is massively better than the GT 440.

The GeForce GT 440 v3 has 144 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 7850 XFX Core Edition has 1024. However, the actual shader performance of the GT 440 is 171 and the actual shader performance of the HD 7850 is 749. The HD 7850 having 578 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the HD 7850 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GT 440.

The HD 7850 transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GT 440. This means that the HD 7850 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GT 440.

The GeForce GT 440 v3 requires 56 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Radeon HD 7850 XFX Core Edition. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 440 and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the HD 7850. The HD 7850 has been recommended a PSU with 200 Watts more than the GT 440. The difference is significant enough that the HD 7850 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GT 440.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GT 440 v3 is an OEM only middle-class Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Fermi Architecture.

Architecture
The Fermi Architecture is manufactured with a 40nm technology and uses a technique known as Hot Clocking: The Shaders are clocked twice as fast as the Central Unit. While this leads to a reasonable performance boost, it causes enormous amounts of energy dissipation, leading, ultimately, to a significantly higher operating temperature.
Fermi is also the first GPU architecture with fully cached memory access which increases memory performance.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed GF106 which has 3 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 144 Shader Processing Units, 24 TMUs and 24 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 810MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 1.5GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 192-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is exaggerated and in no way benefits the GPU. The Memory Clock Operates at 900MHz.

Features
DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for SLI, 3D Vision Surround, PhysX, Realtime Raytracing and other technologies.

Cooling Solution
The Cooling Solution consists of a Single-Fan.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 56W, it requires at least a 300W PSU and it relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power, meaning no extra connectors are required.

Performance
Gaming benchmarks put its performance considerably above Radeon HD 5570 but Radeon HD 5670 is still faster.

System Suggestions
We recommend a modest processor (Intel Celeron) and 4GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GT 440.
Radeon HD 7850 XFX Core Edition is a special edition of the powerful Radeon HD 7850. See the standard version for more information about it.
This edition features a special cooling system that allows twice as much heat dissipation when compared to the reference AMD cooling system but its performance is still the same, as there's no over-clocking out of the box.
