In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel Iris Pro Graphics 5200 Desktop are marginally better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 730 v2 Gigabyte Rev 2.0 2GB Edition.

The GT 730 has a 502 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Texture Mapping Units than the Pro Graphics. This results in the GT 730 providing 11.2 GTexel/s better texturing performance. 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 502 MHz higher core clock speed and 4 more Render Output Units than the Pro Graphics. This results in the GT 730 providing 5.6 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 Pro Graphics, 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 Pro Graphics.

The GT 730 has 2048 MB video memory, but the Pro Graphics does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The GeForce GT 730 v2 Gigabyte Rev 2.0 2GB Edition has 384 Shader Processing Units and the Iris Pro Graphics 5200 Desktop has 160. However, the actual shader performance of the GT 730 is 346 and the actual shader performance of the Pro Graphics is 314. The GT 730 having 32 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GT 730 delivers a slightly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Pro Graphics.

The Pro Graphics transistor size technology is 6 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GT 730. This means that the Pro Graphics is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GT 730. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the Pro Graphics should consume less power than the GT 730.

The GeForce GT 730 v2 Gigabyte Rev 2.0 2GB Edition requires 38 Watts to run and the Iris Pro Graphics 5200 Desktop requires 28 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 730. The GT 730 requires 10 Watts more than the Pro Graphics to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GT 730 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the Pro Graphics.

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.
Iris Pro Graphics 5200 Desktop are found in some of the 2013 Haswell desktop processors.
They feature 40 Execution Units (160 Shader Processing Units), 8 TMUs and 4 ROPs. They share system memory and so the memory channel and speed will depend on the users configuration. The best possible combination is a dual-channel bus-width with an operating memory clock of 800MHz.
Its central unit and turbo frequency also depend on the CPU its embedded but it ranges from 400MHz to 1300MHz.
Compared to Iris Graphics 5100 Desktop, they offer an additional eDRAM cache of 128MB and so might offer performance identical to a dedicated GeForce GT 640 or a Radeon HD 6670.
