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 Nvidia GeForce GT 440 v3.

The GT 730 has a 308 MHz higher core clock speed but 8 fewer Texture Mapping Units than the GT 440. The lower TMU count doesn't matter, though, as altogether the GT 730 manages to provide 0.1 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 308 MHz higher core clock speed than the GT 440, but the GT 440 has 16 more Render Output Units than the GT 730. As a result, the GT 440 exhibits a 7.1 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 GT 440, 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 GT 440 when running the latest games.

The GT 730 has 512 MB more video memory than the GT 440, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GT 730 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GT 440 has 3.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GT 730, which means that the memory performance of the GT 440 is marginally better than the GT 730.

The GeForce GT 730 v2 Gigabyte Rev 2.0 2GB Edition has 384 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GT 440 v3 has 144. However, the actual shader performance of the GT 730 is 346 and the actual shader performance of the GT 440 is 171. The GT 730 having 175 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GT 730 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GT 440.

The GT 730 transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GT 440. This means that the GT 730 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GT 440.

The GeForce GT 730 v2 Gigabyte Rev 2.0 2GB Edition requires 38 Watts to run and the GeForce GT 440 v3 requires 56 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 730 and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 440. The GT 440 requires 18 Watts more than the GT 730 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GT 440 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than 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.
Overview
GeForce GT 440 v3 is an OEM only middle-class Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Fermi Architecture.

Architecture
The Fermi Architecture is manufactured with a 40nm technology and uses a technique known as Hot Clocking: The Shaders are clocked twice as fast as the Central Unit. While this leads to a reasonable performance boost, it causes enormous amounts of energy dissipation, leading, ultimately, to a significantly higher operating temperature.
Fermi is also the first GPU architecture with fully cached memory access which increases memory performance.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed GF106 which has 3 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 144 Shader Processing Units, 24 TMUs and 24 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 810MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 1.5GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 192-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is exaggerated and in no way benefits the GPU. The Memory Clock Operates at 900MHz.

Features
DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for SLI, 3D Vision Surround, PhysX, Realtime Raytracing and other technologies.

Cooling Solution
The Cooling Solution consists of a Single-Fan.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 56W, it requires at least a 300W PSU and it relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power, meaning no extra connectors are required.

Performance
Gaming benchmarks put its performance considerably above Radeon HD 5570 but Radeon HD 5670 is still faster.

System Suggestions
We recommend a modest processor (Intel Celeron) and 4GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GT 440.
