In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GT 635 (OEM) are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 730 v3 Gigabyte 2GB Edition.

The GT 635 has a 267 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the GT 730. This results in the GT 635 providing 4.3 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 635 has a 267 MHz higher core clock speed and 4 more Render Output Units than the GT 730. This results in the GT 635 providing 4.9 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 less than a year after the GT 635, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The GeForce GT 635 (OEM) and the GeForce GT 730 v3 Gigabyte 2GB Edition have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GT 730 has 12.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GT 635, which means that the memory performance of the GT 730 is slightly better than the GT 635.

The GeForce GT 635 (OEM) has 384 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GT 730 v3 Gigabyte 2GB Edition has 96. However, the actual shader performance of the GT 635 is 371 and the actual shader performance of the GT 730 is 134. The GT 635 having 237 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the GT 730 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GT 635 transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GT 730. This means that the GT 635 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GT 730.

The GeForce GT 635 (OEM) requires 35 Watts to run and the GeForce GT 730 v3 Gigabyte 2GB Edition requires 49 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 350 Watts for the GT 635 and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 730. The GT 730 requires 14 Watts more than the GT 635 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GT 730 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GT 635.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GT 630 v3 is 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 Kepler GK208-301-A1 which has 2 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 384 Shader Processing Units, 16 TMUs and 8 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 967MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 64-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is exaggerated and in no way benefits the GPU. The Memory Clock Operates at 1001MHz.

Features
DirectX 11.0 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 35W, it requires at least a 350W PSU and it relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power, meaning no extra connectors are required.

Performance
GeForce GT 630 v3 is the fastest of all GeForce GT 630 variants, at the lowest resolutions. As the resolutions increases, its performance decreases significantly.
GeForce GT 635 (OEM) is essentially a fast GeForce GT 630 v2.
Gaming benchmarks put its performance somewhat above GeForce GT 630 v2.

System Suggestions
We recommend a Modest Processor (Intel Core i3) and 4GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GT 635 (OEM).
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.
