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 AMD FirePro V3900.

The GT 730 has a 252 MHz higher core clock speed than the FirePro V3900, but the FirePro V3900 has 8 more Texture Mapping Units than the GT 730. As a result, the FirePro V3900 exhibits a 1.2 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GT 730. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GT 730 has a 252 MHz higher core clock speed than the FirePro V3900 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GT 730 providing 2 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 FirePro V3900, 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 FirePro V3900.

The GT 730 has 1024 MB more video memory than the FirePro V3900, 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 11.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the FirePro V3900, which means that the memory performance of the GT 730 is slightly better than the FirePro V3900.

The GeForce GT 730 v2 Gigabyte Rev 2.0 2GB Edition has 384 Shader Processing Units and the FirePro V3900 has 480. However, the actual shader performance of the GT 730 is 346 and the actual shader performance of the FirePro V3900 is 203. The GT 730 having 143 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GT 730 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the FirePro V3900.

The GT 730 transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the FirePro V3900. This means that the GT 730 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the FirePro V3900.

The GeForce GT 730 v2 Gigabyte Rev 2.0 2GB Edition requires 38 Watts to run and the FirePro V3900 requires 75 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 730 and a PSU with at least 350 Watts for the FirePro V3900. The FirePro V3900 requires 37 Watts more than the GT 730 to run. The difference is significant enough that the FirePro V3900 may have a slight 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.

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.
