In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GT 140 are marginally better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 430 MSI Low Profile Dual Fan OC 1GB Edition.

The GT 430 has a 135 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce GT 140, but the GeForce GT 140 has 16 more Texture Mapping Units than the GT 430. As a result, the GeForce GT 140 exhibits a 8.2 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GT 430. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GT 430 has a 135 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce GT 140, but the GeForce GT 140 has 12 more Render Output Units than the GT 430. As a result, the GeForce GT 140 exhibits a 7.3 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GT 430. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GT 430 was released over a year more recently than the GeForce GT 140, and so the GT 430 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GeForce GT 140.

The GeForce GT 430 MSI Low Profile Dual Fan OC 1GB Edition and the GeForce GT 140 have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GeForce GT 140 has 25.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GT 430, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce GT 140 is slightly better than the GT 430.

The GeForce GT 430 MSI Low Profile Dual Fan OC 1GB Edition has 96 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GT 140 has 64. However, the actual shader performance of the GT 430 is 151 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce GT 140 is 104. The GT 430 having 47 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the GeForce GT 140 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GT 430 transistor size technology is 15 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce GT 140. This means that the GT 430 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce GT 140. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the GT 430 should consume less power than the GeForce GT 140.

The GeForce GT 430 MSI Low Profile Dual Fan OC 1GB Edition requires 49 Watts to run and the GeForce GT 140 requires 105 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 430 and a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GeForce GT 140. The GeForce GT 140 requires 56 Watts more than the GT 430 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GeForce GT 140 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GT 430.

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.
GeForce GT 140 is a performance GPU based on the 2009, 55nm, first-generation unified architecture.
It's based on the G94 Core and offers 64 Shader Processing Units, 32 TMUs and 16 ROPs, on a 256-bit memory interface of standard DDR3. The central unit runs at 650MHz and the memory clock operates at up to 900MHz.
It's therefore a renamed GeForce 9600 GT and performs exactly like it.
Today's modern demanding games are playable at medium settings but DirectX 11 games aren't supported and extremely demanding games will require reduced further reduced settings to be played optimally.
