In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 Zotac AMP Edition are massively better than the AMD Radeon HD 7730 v2.

The GTX 660 has a 246 MHz higher core clock speed and 56 more Texture Mapping Units than the HD 7730. This results in the GTX 660 providing 64.5 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 GTX 660 has a 246 MHz higher core clock speed and 16 more Render Output Units than the HD 7730. This results in the GTX 660 providing 18.7 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The HD 7730 was released less than a year after the GTX 660, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The Radeon HD 7730 v2 and the GeForce GTX 660 Zotac AMP Edition have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GTX 660 has 129.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the HD 7730, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 660 is massively better than the HD 7730.

The Radeon HD 7730 v2 has 384 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 660 Zotac AMP Edition has 960. However, the actual shader performance of the HD 7730 is 261 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 660 is 1067. The GTX 660 having 806 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 660 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the HD 7730.

The Radeon HD 7730 v2 requires 47 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce GTX 660 Zotac AMP Edition. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the HD 7730.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Radeon HD 7730 v2 is a Fast-Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the First revision of the GCN Architecture.

Architecture
The GCN Architecture succeeds the 40nm Terascale Architecture. In addition to being produced with a 28nm Technology, the GCN Architecture adds other Technologies that allow for energy efficiency. For example, ZeroCore Power, a long idle power saving technology, allows the Graphics Cards to shut down by itself when the Monitor is turned off.
GCN also adds Improved Anisotropic Filtering, DirectX 11 Tessellation and the Partially Resident Textures (PRT) Technology, which enables future games to utilize ultra-high resolution textures with the same performance as today's small and often repetitive textures.

GPU
It equips a GPU codenamed Cape Verde LE which has 6 Compute Units activated and thus offers 384 Shader Processing Units, 24 TMUs and 8 ROPs. The Central Unit Operates at 800MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is exaggerated and in no way benefits the GPU. The memory clock operates at 900MHz.

Features
DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for Crossfire, PowerTune Technology, Eyefinity, App Acceleration, HD3D, ZeroCore Power and other technologies.

Cooling Solution
The Cooling Solution consists of a Single-Fan.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 47W, it requires at least a 400W PSU and it relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power, meaning no extra connectors are required.

Performance
Gaming benchmarks put its performance somewhat below a GeForce GT 640.

System Suggestions
We recommend a modest processor (Intel Core i3) and 8GB of RAM for a system with Radeon HD 7730 v2.
GeForce GTX 660 Zotac AMP Edition a special edition of GeForce GTX 660.
The new features include a new cooling system and in terms of overclocking, the base-clock was increased from 980MHz to 1046MHz and the boost clock can now reach 1111MHz, instead of 1033MHz. The memory clock was raised to 1652MHz.
Benchmarks indicate a 5.5% performance when compared to the reference card.
