In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 6670 v2 MSI 2GB Edition are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 720.

The HD 6670 has a 3 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce GT 720. This results in the HD 6670 providing 6.4 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 HD 6670 has a 3 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce GT 720, but both GPUs exhibit the same Pixel Fill Rate. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GeForce GT 720 was released over a year more recently than the HD 6670, and so the GeForce GT 720 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the HD 6670.

The HD 6670 has 1024 MB more video memory than the GeForce GT 720, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the HD 6670 also has superior memory performance overall.

The HD 6670 has 6.9 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce GT 720, which means that the memory performance of the HD 6670 is marginally better than the GeForce GT 720.

The Radeon HD 6670 v2 MSI 2GB Edition has 480 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GT 720 has 192. However, the actual shader performance of the HD 6670 is 192 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce GT 720 is 153. The HD 6670 having 39 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the HD 6670 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce GT 720.

The GeForce GT 720 transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the HD 6670. This means that the GeForce GT 720 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the HD 6670.

The Radeon HD 6670 v2 MSI 2GB Edition requires 66 Watts to run and the GeForce GT 720 requires 19 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the HD 6670 and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GeForce GT 720. The HD 6670 requires 47 Watts more than the GeForce GT 720 to run. The difference is significant enough that the HD 6670 may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GeForce GT 720.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Radeon HD 6670 v2 MSI 2GB Edition is a special edition of AMD's fast-middle-class Radeon HD 6670 v2, created by MSI.

Overclock: Central Unit
The Central Unit runs at the same speed.

Overclock: Memory Clock
The Operating Memory Clock runs at 667MHz and the Frame Buffer was raised to 2GB. This is a gimmick and in no way benefits the GPU.

Cooling Solution
The Cooling System remains the same.

Performance
Without Overclocking Out of The Box, Radeon HD 6670 v2 MSI 2GB Edition is as fast as the reference Radeon HD 6670 v2.
Overview
GeForce GT 720 is a Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the Second Revision of the Kepler Architecture.

Architecture
This Graphics Card Equips the Kepler GK208 GPU which is essentially a power optimized version of the GK107 GPU. Whereas it still has a count of 2 Stream Multiprocessors, the bus-width has been cut in half to allow for even a smaller power consumption and consequently a cooler operating temperature.
Additionally, the GK208 GPU allows the Central Unit to reach a significant higher frequency, thanks to the Kepler Boost 2.0 Technology. The better the laptop's cooling system, the higher the frequency.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed GK208 which has 1 Stream Multiprocessor activated and thus offers 192 Shader Processing Units, 16 TMUs and 16 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 797MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 900MHz.

Features
DirectX 12.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for Optimus, CUDA, OpenCL, DirectCompute, 3D Vision Surround, PhysX, Realtime Raytracing and other technologies

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 19W, it requires at least a 300W PSU and it relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power, meaning no extra connectors are required.

Performance
Gaming benchmarks put its performance on average with the older GeForce GT 530.

System Suggestions
We recommend a Modest Processor (Pentium G) and 8GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GT 720.
