In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GT 730 Asus Silent 1GB Edition are noticeably better than the AMD Radeon HD 3800 series.

The HD 3800 has no core clock speed set, so any comparison between Texture and Pixel Fill Rates is not currently possible.

The GT 730 was released over three years more recently than the HD 3800, and so the GT 730 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the HD 3800 when running the latest games.

The GT 730 has 512 MB more video memory than the HD 3800, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GT 730 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GT 730 has 14.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the HD 3800, which means that the memory performance of the GT 730 is slightly better than the HD 3800.

The GeForce GT 730 Asus Silent 1GB Edition has 384 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 3800 series has 320. However, the actual shader performance of the GT 730 is 346 and the actual shader performance of the HD 3800 is 0. The GT 730 having 346 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GT 730 delivers a noticeably smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the HD 3800.

The GT 730 transistor size technology is 27 nm (nanometers) smaller than the HD 3800. This means that the GT 730 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the HD 3800. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the GT 730 should consume less power than the HD 3800.

The GeForce GT 730 Asus Silent 1GB Edition requires 23 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Radeon HD 3800 series. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 730.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GT 730 Asus Silent 1GB Edition is a special edition of NVIDIA's Middle-Class GeForce GT 730, created by Asus.

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

Overclock: Memory Clock
The Operating Memory Clock Remains the same and the Frame Buffer was halved to 1GB which is adequate for the Graphics Card and will not decrease its performance.

Cooling Solution
The Cooling System has been replaced by Asus' OdB Silent Cooling, meaning the Graphics Card is silent under load.

Without Overclocking Out of The Box, GeForce GT 730 Asus Silent 1GB Edition is as fast as the reference GeForce GT 730.
Radeon HD 3800 Series is not a GPU but instead a combination between Radeon HD 3830, Radeon HD 3850 and Radeon HD 3870 whose rank is a balance between the three and that exists for System Requirements purposes only.
