In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GT 630 Gigabyte 2GB Edition are significantly better than the AMD FireGL V7600.

The GT 630 was released over three years more recently than the FireGL V7600, and so the GT 630 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the FireGL V7600 when running the latest games.

The GT 630 has 1536 MB more video memory than the FireGL V7600, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the FireGL V7600 has superior memory performance.

The FireGL V7600 has 25.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GT 630, which means that the memory performance of the FireGL V7600 is slightly better than the GT 630.

The GeForce GT 630 Gigabyte 2GB Edition has 96 Shader Processing Units and the FireGL V7600 has 240. However, the actual shader performance of the GT 630 is 156 and the actual shader performance of the FireGL V7600 is 94. The GT 630 having 62 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the FireGL V7600 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GeForce GT 630 Gigabyte 2GB Edition requires 65 Watts to run but there is no entry for the FireGL V7600. We would recommend a PSU with at least 350 Watts for the GT 630 and a PSU with at least 350 Watts for the FireGL V7600. The two GPUs have been recommended a PSU with the same amount of wattage. As such, there is no need to worry about which will more significantly affect your yearly electricity bills.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GT 630 Gigabyte 2GB Edition is a special edition of NVIDIA's Middle-Class GeForce GT 630, created by Gigabyte.

Overclock: Central Unit
The Central Unit Remains the Same.

Overclock: Memory Clock
The Operating Memory Clock runs at 800MHz and the Frame Buffer was raised to 2GB. This is a gimmick and in no way benefits the GPU.

Cooling Solution
The Cooling System has been replaced by Gigabyte's custom-designed 80 mm cooler, with air flow optimized cover and aluminum base. The cooler can dissipate heat effectively from the GPU while keeping the fan at lower speed and noise.

Performance
Without Any Overclock Out of The Box, GeForce GT 630 Gigabyte 2GB Edition is as fast as the reference GeForce GT 630.
The ATI FireGL range of video cards, renamed to FirePro 3D in late 2008, is the series specifically for CAD (Computer Aided Design) and DCC (Digital Content Creation) software, usually found in workstations. The FireGL line is designed for multimedia content creation programs, such as 3DS Max, and mechanical engineering design software such as Solidworks, whereas Radeon counterparts are suited towards video games. FireGL drivers were built with maximum image quality and pixel precision, with CAD specific functionalities such as the recently introduced AutoDetection Technology to tune the parameters inside the driver to achieve maximum performance for predefined list of software. However, because the drivers are also based on the Catalyst drivers made for the Radeon line, it makes them suitable for gaming, at the expense of probable compatibility issues with the very latest games due to the age of the drivers, with FireGL cards in theory pushing more data than their Radeon gaming counterparts.
