In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD FirePro V8700 are marginally better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 730 v2 Gigabyte Rev 2.0 2GB Edition.

The GT 730 was released over three years more recently than the FirePro V8700, 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 V8700 when running the latest games.

The GT 730 has 1024 MB more video memory than the FirePro V8700, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, the overall memory performance is about the same.

The FirePro V8700 has 68.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GT 730, which means that the memory performance of the FirePro V8700 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 V8700 has 800. However, the actual shader performance of the GT 730 is 346 and the actual shader performance of the FirePro V8700 is 390. The FirePro V8700 having 44 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the FirePro V8700 delivers a noticeably smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GT 730.

The GeForce GT 730 v2 Gigabyte Rev 2.0 2GB Edition requires 38 Watts to run and the FirePro V8700 requires 151 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 730 and a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the FirePro V8700. The FirePro V8700 requires 113 Watts more than the GT 730 to run. The difference is significant enough that the FirePro V8700 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The Cooling System has been replaced by Gigabyte's custom-designed 80 mm cooler, with air flow optimized cover and aluminum base.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.
The FireGL line is designed for multimedia content creation programs, such as 3DS Max, mechanical engineering design software such as Solidworks, and civil engineering architectural software such as Chief Architect, whereas Radeon counterparts are suited towards video games. FireGL drivers were built with maximum image quality and pixel precision, with CAD specific functionalities such as the recently introduced AutoDetection Technology to tune the parameters inside the driver to achieve maximum performance for predefined list of software. However, because the drivers are also based on the Catalyst drivers made for the Radeon line, it makes them suitable for gaming, at the expense of probable compatibility issues with the very latest games due to the age of the drivers, with FireGL cards in theory pushing more data than their Radeon gaming counterparts
The ATI FireGL range of video cards, renamed to FirePro 3D in late 2008, is the series specifically for CAD (Computer Aided Design) and DCC (Digital Content Creation) software, usually found in workstations.
