In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GT 440 v3 are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 730 v3 Gigabyte 2GB Edition.

The GT 730 has a 106 MHz higher core clock speed than the GT 440, but the GT 440 has 8 more Texture Mapping Units than the GT 730. As a result, the GT 440 exhibits a 3.1 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GT 730. 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 has a 106 MHz higher core clock speed than the GT 440, but the GT 440 has 20 more Render Output Units than the GT 730. As a result, the GT 440 exhibits a 11.5 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GT 730. 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 three years more recently than the GT 440, 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 GT 440 when running the latest games.

The GT 730 has 512 MB more video memory than the GT 440, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the GT 440 has superior memory performance.

The GT 440 has 14.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GT 730, which means that the memory performance of the GT 440 is slightly better than the GT 730.

The GeForce GT 440 v3 has 144 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GT 730 v3 Gigabyte 2GB Edition has 96. However, the actual shader performance of the GT 440 is 171 and the actual shader performance of the GT 730 is 134. The GT 440 having 37 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GT 440 delivers a slightly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GT 730.

The GeForce GT 440 v3 requires 56 Watts to run and the GeForce GT 730 v3 Gigabyte 2GB Edition requires 49 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 440 and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 730. The GT 440 requires 7 Watts more than the GT 730 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GT 440 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GT 730.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
GeForce 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.
