In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon R9 390X Gigabyte G1 Gaming 8GB Edition are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 930 2GB.

The GT 930 has no core clock speed set, so any comparison between Texture and Pixel Fill Rates is not currently possible.

The GT 930 was released over a year more recently than the R9 390X, and so the GT 930 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the R9 390X.

The R9 390X has 6144 MB more video memory than the GT 930, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the R9 390X also has superior memory performance overall.

The R9 390X has 368 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GT 930, which means that the memory performance of the R9 390X is massively better than the GT 930.

The Radeon R9 390X Gigabyte G1 Gaming 8GB Edition has 2816 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GT 930 2GB has 384. However, the actual shader performance of the R9 390X is 2537 and the actual shader performance of the GT 930 is 0. The R9 390X having 2537 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the R9 390X delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GT 930.

The Radeon R9 390X Gigabyte G1 Gaming 8GB Edition requires 300 Watts to run and the GeForce GT 930 2GB requires 35 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the R9 390X and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 930. The R9 390X requires 265 Watts more than the GT 930 to run. The difference is significant enough that the R9 390X may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GT 930.

Cooling Solution
WINDFORCE 2X Cooling System: The airflow is spilt through the triangle design at the fan edge, and is guided smoothly through the fan by special 3D stripe curve design. At the same time, it effectively enhanced the cooling capacity while reducing air turbulence.

Benchmarks Indicate no Performance Boost over the Reference Radeon R9 390X 8GB.
GeForce GT 930 2GB is an upcoming middle-class Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Maxwell architecture.

The first variant of the Maxwell Architecture succeeds the Kepler Architecture. Despite being also manufactured with a 28nm technology, it has an extremely large L2 Cache which allows NVIDIA to produce Graphics Cards with relatively small memory data transfer rates, without causing too much impact on the overall performance. Furthermore, the Shaders have been redesigned and are both more powerful and energy efficient.

It equips a GPU codenamed ???? which has 3 SM activated and thus offers 384 Shader Processing Units, 16 TMUs and 8 ROPs, on a 64-bit memory interface of fast GDDR5. The central unit runs at XXXXMHz and goes up to XXXXMHz, in Turbo Mode, while the memory clock operates at 1250MHz.

DirectX 12.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for GameStream, G-SYNC, GPU Boost 2.0, GeForce Experience, PhysX and other technologies.
