In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD FirePro V5900 are marginally better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 730 v2 Gigabyte Rev 2.0 2GB Edition.

The GT 730 has a 302 MHz higher core clock speed than the FirePro V5900, but the FirePro V5900 has 16 more Texture Mapping Units than the GT 730. As a result, the FirePro V5900 exhibits a 4.8 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 302 MHz higher core clock speed than the FirePro V5900, but the FirePro V5900 has 24 more Render Output Units than the GT 730. As a result, the FirePro V5900 exhibits a 12 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 FirePro V5900, 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 FirePro V5900 when running the latest games.

The GeForce GT 730 v2 Gigabyte Rev 2.0 2GB Edition and the FirePro V5900 have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The FirePro V5900 has 88 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GT 730, which means that the memory performance of the FirePro V5900 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 FirePro V5900 has 512. However, the actual shader performance of the GT 730 is 346 and the actual shader performance of the FirePro V5900 is 200. The GT 730 having 146 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the FirePro V5900 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GT 730 transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the FirePro V5900. This means that the GT 730 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the FirePro V5900. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the GT 730 should consume less power than the FirePro V5900.

The GeForce GT 730 v2 Gigabyte Rev 2.0 2GB Edition requires 38 Watts to run and the FirePro V5900 requires 75 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 FirePro V5900. The FirePro V5900 requires 37 Watts more than the GT 730 to run. The difference is significant enough that the FirePro V5900 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.
FirePro C5900 is a server Graphics Card based on the 40nm Terascale 2 architecture.
It's based on the Cayman Core (related to Radeon HD 6950) and therefore offers 512 Shader Processing Units, 32 TMUs and 32 ROPs on a 256-bit interface of fast GDDR5. The central unit is clocked 600MHz while the memory clock operates at 1000MHZ.
Despite featuring a Cayman Core, its LE variant features over 100% less Shader Processing Units and thus its performance lies between Radeon HD 6670 and Radeon HD 6750.
