In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GT 730 v2 Gigabyte Rev 2.0 2GB Edition are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce 7950 GX2.

The GT 730 has a 402 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce 7950 GX2, but the GeForce 7950 GX2 has 32 more Texture Mapping Units than the GT 730. As a result, the GeForce 7950 GX2 exhibits a 9.6 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GT 730. Neither of these GPUs support DirectX 10 or higher, so Texture Rate holds more weight than when comparing more modern GPUs.

The GT 730 has a 402 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce 7950 GX2, but the GeForce 7950 GX2 has 24 more Render Output Units than the GT 730. As a result, the GeForce 7950 GX2 exhibits a 8.8 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GT 730. 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 three years more recently than the GeForce 7950 GX2, 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 GeForce 7950 GX2 when running the latest games.

The GT 730 has 1024 MB more video memory than the GeForce 7950 GX2, 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 GeForce 7950 GX2 has 36.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GT 730, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce 7950 GX2 is noticeably better than the GT 730.

The GeForce GT 730 v2 Gigabyte Rev 2.0 2GB Edition has 384 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 7950 GX2 has 48. However, the actual shader performance of the GT 730 is 346 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 7950 GX2 is 24. The GT 730 having 322 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the GeForce 7950 GX2 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GT 730 transistor size technology is 62 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce 7950 GX2. This means that the GT 730 is expected to run massively cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce 7950 GX2.

The GeForce GT 730 v2 Gigabyte Rev 2.0 2GB Edition requires 38 Watts to run and the GeForce 7950 GX2 requires 110 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 730 and a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GeForce 7950 GX2. The GeForce 7950 GX2 requires 72 Watts more than the GT 730 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GeForce 7950 GX2 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GT 730.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GT 730 v2 Gigabyte Rev 2.0 2GB Edition is a special edition of NVIDIA's middle-class GeForce GT 730 v2, created by Gigabyte.

Overclock: Central Unit
The Central Unit remains clocked at the same speed.

Overclock: Memory Clock
The Operating Memory Clock remains the same while the Frame Buffer was doubled to 2GB: a gimmick which doesn't yield any performance boost and can be considered market to lure consumers into paying more for the same product.

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 overclocking out of the box, GeForce GT 730 v2 Gigabyte Rev 2.0 2GB Edition is as fast as the reference GeForce GT 730 v2.
The NVIDIA GeForce 7 Series graphics processing units (GPUs) represent a significant leap forward in 3D graphics design, delivering the unparalleled horsepower and revolutionary technologies you need to tackle the latest games and video applications. The GeForce 7 Series GPUs deliver blazing frame rates and outstanding image quality so you can experience full-throttle graphics performance.
