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 Radeon HD 5670 MSI 1GB OC Edition.

The GT 730 has a 102 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD 5670, but the HD 5670 has 4 more Texture Mapping Units than the GT 730. As a result, the HD 5670 exhibits a 1.6 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 102 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD 5670 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GT 730 providing 0.8 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 three years more recently than the HD 5670, 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 5670 when running the latest games.

The GT 730 has 1024 MB more video memory than the HD 5670, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, the overall memory performance is about the same.

The HD 5670 has 20.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GT 730, which means that the memory performance of the HD 5670 is slightly 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 5670 MSI 1GB OC Edition has 400. However, the actual shader performance of the GT 730 is 346 and the actual shader performance of the HD 5670 is 160. The GT 730 having 186 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the HD 5670 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GT 730 transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the HD 5670. This means that the GT 730 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the HD 5670.

The GeForce GT 730 v2 Gigabyte Rev 2.0 2GB Edition requires 38 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Radeon HD 5670 MSI 1GB OC Edition. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 730 and a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the HD 5670. The HD 5670 has been recommended a PSU with 100 Watts more than the GT 730. The difference is significant enough that the HD 5670 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 5670 MSI 1GB OC Edition is a special edition of the middle-class Radeon HD 5670.
Compared to the reference card, it features overclocking out of the box in the central unit was increased to 800MHz. However, its operating memory clock is slightly lower (950MHz Vs 1000MHz) which might reduce, very slightly, its performance on higher resolutions to which this card isn't suited, anyway.
Benchmarks indicate a 3% performance boost when compared to the reference card.
