In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GT 430 MSI Low Profile Dual Fan OC 1GB Edition are marginally better than the AMD FirePro V5700.

The GT 430 has a 85 MHz higher core clock speed than the FirePro V5700, but the FirePro V5700 has 16 more Texture Mapping Units than the GT 430. As a result, the FirePro V5700 exhibits a 9.8 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 85 MHz higher core clock speed than the FirePro V5700, but the FirePro V5700 has 4 more Render Output Units than the GT 430. As a result, the FirePro V5700 exhibits a 2.5 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 FirePro V5700, 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 FirePro V5700.

The GT 430 has 512 MB more video memory than the FirePro V5700, 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 FirePro V5700, which means that the memory performance of the GT 430 is marginally better than the FirePro V5700.

The GeForce GT 430 MSI Low Profile Dual Fan OC 1GB Edition has 96 Shader Processing Units and the FirePro V5700 has 320. However, the actual shader performance of the GT 430 is 151 and the actual shader performance of the FirePro V5700 is 146. The GT 430 having 5 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the FirePro V5700 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GT 430 transistor size technology is 15 nm (nanometers) smaller than the FirePro V5700. This means that the GT 430 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the FirePro V5700. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the GT 430 should consume less power than the FirePro V5700.

The GeForce GT 430 MSI Low Profile Dual Fan OC 1GB Edition requires 49 Watts to run and the FirePro V5700 requires 56 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 430 and a PSU with at least 350 Watts for the FirePro V5700. The FirePro V5700 requires 7 Watts more than the GT 430 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the FirePro V5700 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than 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.

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.
