In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 4860 are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 730 v2 Gigabyte Rev 2.0 2GB Edition.

The GT 730 has a 202 MHz higher core clock speed than the Radeon HD 4860, but the Radeon HD 4860 has 16 more Texture Mapping Units than the GT 730. As a result, the Radeon HD 4860 exhibits a 8 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 202 MHz higher core clock speed than the Radeon HD 4860, but the Radeon HD 4860 has 8 more Render Output Units than the GT 730. As a result, the Radeon HD 4860 exhibits a 4 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 Radeon HD 4860, 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 Radeon HD 4860 when running the latest games.

The GT 730 has 1536 MB more video memory than the Radeon HD 4860, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, the overall memory performance is about the same.

The Radeon HD 4860 has 56 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GT 730, which means that the memory performance of the Radeon HD 4860 is much better than the GT 730.

The GeForce GT 730 v2 Gigabyte Rev 2.0 2GB Edition has 384 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 4860 has 640. However, the actual shader performance of the GT 730 is 346 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 4860 is 291. The GT 730 having 55 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Radeon HD 4860 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GT 730 transistor size technology is 27 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Radeon HD 4860. This means that the GT 730 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Radeon HD 4860.

The GeForce GT 730 v2 Gigabyte Rev 2.0 2GB Edition requires 38 Watts to run and the Radeon HD 4860 requires 130 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 730. The Radeon HD 4860 requires 92 Watts more than the GT 730 to run. The difference is significant enough that the Radeon HD 4860 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.
Radeon HD 4860 is a high-end GPU based on the 55nm, third unified shader architecture, R700.
It's based on the RV790 GT Core (related to Radeon HD 4830) and offers 640 Shader Processing Units, 32 TMUs and 16 ROPs a 256-bit memory interface of fast GDDR5. The central unit runs at 700MHz and the memory clock runs at up to 750MHz.
It's expected to perform only slightly better than Radeon HD 4850 as it comes higher clocked and paired with fast GDDR5 but features less Shading Units and less TMUs. It should perform considerably better at higher resolutions but overall, expect only a 2-3% performance boost compared to Radeon HD 4850.
Some of today's modern games should run fluently at high settings but with modest resolutions. DirectX 11 games aren't supported.
