In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon R5 7400K are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 430 MSI Low Profile Dual Fan OC 1GB Edition.

The GT 430 has a 29 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the Radeon R5 7400K. This results in the GT 430 providing 0.5 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 GT 430 has a 29 MHz higher core clock speed than the Radeon R5 7400K, but the Radeon R5 7400K has 4 more Render Output Units than the GT 430. As a result, the Radeon R5 7400K exhibits a 2.9 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 Radeon R5 7400K was released over three years more recently than the GT 430, and so the Radeon R5 7400K is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GT 430 when running the latest games.

The GT 430 has 1024 MB video memory, but the Radeon R5 7400K does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The GeForce GT 430 MSI Low Profile Dual Fan OC 1GB Edition has 96 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon R5 7400K has 256. However, the actual shader performance of the GT 430 is 151 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon R5 7400K is 126. The GT 430 having 25 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Radeon R5 7400K performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The Radeon R5 7400K transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GT 430. This means that the Radeon R5 7400K is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GT 430.

The GeForce GT 430 MSI Low Profile Dual Fan OC 1GB Edition requires 49 Watts to run and the Radeon R5 7400K requires 65 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 430 and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the Radeon R5 7400K. The Radeon R5 7400K requires 16 Watts more than the GT 430 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the Radeon R5 7400K 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.
Radeon R5 7400K is an integrated Graphics Card in the A4-7400K.
It is based on the Graphics Core Next Architecture and offers 256 Shader Processing Units, XX TMUs and X ROPs. The memory bus-width will depend on whether or not the system's RAM is dual-channeled and the operating memory clock, on its frequency. Thus, it can be either 64-bit or 128-bit and up to 933MHz.
Therefore, the Graphics Card's performance depends a lot on the system configuration. Best case scenario, expect performance superior to Intel's powerful Iris Graphics 5100.
The card is thus suited for 720p gaming and some modern demanding games can be played at least on medium settings.
