In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 4850 HIS iCooler IV 1GB Edition are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 730 v2 Gigabyte Rev 2.0 2GB Edition.

The GT 730 has a 277 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD 4850, but the HD 4850 has 24 more Texture Mapping Units than the GT 730. As a result, the HD 4850 exhibits a 10.6 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 277 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD 4850, but the HD 4850 has 8 more Render Output Units than the GT 730. As a result, the HD 4850 exhibits a 2.8 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 HD 4850, 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 4850 when running the latest games.

The GT 730 has 1024 MB more video memory than the HD 4850, 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 HD 4850 has 23.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GT 730, which means that the memory performance of the HD 4850 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 4850 HIS iCooler IV 1GB Edition has 800. However, the actual shader performance of the GT 730 is 346 and the actual shader performance of the HD 4850 is 350. The HD 4850 having 4 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the HD 4850 delivers a noticeably smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GT 730.

The GT 730 transistor size technology is 27 nm (nanometers) smaller than the HD 4850. This means that the GT 730 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the HD 4850.

The GeForce GT 730 v2 Gigabyte Rev 2.0 2GB Edition requires 38 Watts to run and the Radeon HD 4850 HIS iCooler IV 1GB Edition requires 110 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 HD 4850. The HD 4850 requires 72 Watts more than the GT 730 to run. The difference is significant enough that the HD 4850 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.
