In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GT 630 v2 are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 730 v3 Gigabyte 2GB Edition.

The GT 630 has a 110 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the GT 730. This results in the GT 630 providing 1.8 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 630 has a 110 MHz higher core clock speed than the GT 730 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GT 630 providing 0.4 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 GT 730 was released over a year more recently than the GT 630, and so the GT 730 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GT 630.

The GT 730 has 1024 MB more video memory than the GT 630, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, the overall memory performance is about the same.

The GT 630 has 22.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GT 730, which means that the memory performance of the GT 630 is slightly better than the GT 730.

Both the GeForce GT 630 v2 and the GeForce GT 730 v3 Gigabyte 2GB Edition have 96 Shader Processing Units. Having the same number of SPUs and using the same architecture means that the performance they offer can be compared by looking at the memory bandwidth, Texture and Pixel Rates. In this case, the GT 630 has 1.8 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate, 0.4 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate, and 22.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth, so should have a slightly faster performance than the GT 730.

The GeForce GT 630 v2 requires 65 Watts to run and the GeForce GT 730 v3 Gigabyte 2GB Edition requires 49 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 630 and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 730. The GT 630 requires 16 Watts more than the GT 730 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GT 630 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GT 730.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GT 630 v2 is Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Fermi Architecture.

Architecture
The Fermi Architecture is manufactured with a 40nm technology and uses a technique known as Hot Clocking: The Shaders are clocked twice as fast as the Central Unit. While this leads to a reasonable performance boost, it causes enormous amounts of energy dissipation, leading, ultimately, to a significantly higher operating temperature.
Fermi is also the first GPU architecture with fully cached memory access which increases memory performance.

GPU
It equips a GPU codenamed GF108-400-A1 which has 2 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 96 Shader Processing Units, 8 TMUs and 2 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 810MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 800MHz.

Features
DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for 3D Vision Surround, PhysX, Realtime Raytracing and other technologies.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 65W, it requires at least a 300W PSU and it relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power, meaning no extra connectors are required.

Performance
GeForce GT 630 v2 is essentially a fast GeForce GT 530.
Gaming benchmarks put its performance somewhat above the older GeForce GT 530.

System Suggestions
We recommend a Modest Processor (Intel Core i3) and 8GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GT 630 v2.
GeForce GT 730 v3 Gigabyte 2GB Edition is a special edition of the middle-class GeForce GT 730 v3.

This Edition comes with a special cooling solution which keeps the GPU cooler under load and no overclock out of the box.

Performance-wise, it's as fast as the reference GeForce GT 730 v3.
