In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the HD 4830 and the GT 730 are equal.

The GT 730 has a 327 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD 4830, but the HD 4830 has 16 more Texture Mapping Units than the GT 730. As a result, the HD 4830 exhibits a 4 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 327 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD 4830, but the HD 4830 has 8 more Render Output Units than the GT 730. As a result, the HD 4830 exhibits a 2 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 4830, 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 4830 when running the latest games.

The GT 730 has 1536 MB more video memory than the HD 4830, 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 4830 has 17.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GT 730, which means that the memory performance of the HD 4830 is slightly better than the GT 730.

The Radeon HD 4830 HIS Fan 512MB Edition has 640 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GT 730 v2 Gigabyte Rev 2.0 2GB Edition has 384. However, the actual shader performance of the HD 4830 is 258 and the actual shader performance of the GT 730 is 346. The GT 730 having 88 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the HD 4830 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GT 730 transistor size technology is 27 nm (nanometers) smaller than the HD 4830. This means that the GT 730 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the HD 4830. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the GT 730 should consume less power than the HD 4830.

The Radeon HD 4830 HIS Fan 512MB Edition requires 95 Watts to run and the GeForce GT 730 v2 Gigabyte Rev 2.0 2GB Edition requires 38 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the HD 4830 and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 730. The HD 4830 requires 57 Watts more than the GT 730 to run. The difference is significant enough that the HD 4830 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GT 730.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Radeon HD 4830 HIS Fan 512MB Edition is a special edition of AMD's Performance Radeon HD 4830, created by HIS.

Overclock: Central Unit
The Central Unit runs at the same speed.

Overclock: Memory Clock
The Operating Memory Clock and the Frame Buffer remain the same.

Cooling Solution
The Cooling System consists of HIS' Fan which is Faster, Cooler and Quieter.

Performance
Without Overclocking Out of The Box, Radeon HD 4830 HIS Fan 512MB Edition is as fast as the reference Radeon HD 4830.
Overview
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.
