In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GT 430 MSI Low Profile Dual Fan OC 1GB Edition are significantly better than the AMD FireGL V7100.

The GT 430 was released over three years more recently than the FireGL V7100, and so the GT 430 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 430 has 768 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 430 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GT 430 has 3.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the FireGL V7100, which means that the memory performance of the GT 430 is marginally better than the FireGL V7100.

The GeForce GT 430 MSI Low Profile Dual Fan OC 1GB Edition has 96 Shader Processing Units and the FireGL V7100 has 6. However, the actual shader performance of the GT 430 is 151 and the actual shader performance of the FireGL V7100 is 2. The GT 430 having 149 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GT 430 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the FireGL V7100.

The GeForce GT 430 MSI Low Profile Dual Fan OC 1GB 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 430 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 ReviewOverview
GeForce GT 430 MSI Low Profile Dual Fan OC 1GB Edition is a special edition of NVIDIA's middle-class GeForce GT 430, created by MSI.

Overclock Out of The Box
The Central Unit is now of 785MHz, instead of 700MHz while the Operating Memory Clock is now of 1000MHz.

Cooling Solution
The reference Cooling System has been replaced by MSI's Dual Fan Cooling System.

Performance
Benchmarks indicate a 6% performance boost over the reference GeForce GT 430.
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.
