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

The GT 730 has a 104 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the GT 730. This results in the GT 730 providing 1.7 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 104 MHz higher core clock speed than the GT 730 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GT 730 providing 0.8 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GT 730 was released less than a year after the GT 730, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The GeForce GT 730 v2 MSI OC 2GB Edition and the GeForce GT 730 v2 Gigabyte Rev 2.0 2GB Edition have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GT 730 has 0.1 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GT 730, which means that the memory performance of the GT 730 is marginally better than the GT 730.

Both the GeForce GT 730 v2 MSI OC 2GB Edition and the GeForce GT 730 v2 Gigabyte Rev 2.0 2GB Edition have 384 Shader Processing Units. Having the same number of SPUs and using the same architecture means that the performance they offer can be compared by looking at the memory bandwidth, Texture and Pixel Rates. In this case, the GT 730 has 1.7 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate, 0.8 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate, and 0.1 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth, so should have a marginally faster performance than the GT 730.

The GeForce GT 730 v2 MSI OC 2GB Edition requires 49 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 300 Watts for the GT 730 and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 730. The GT 730 requires 11 Watts more than the GT 730 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GT 730 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GT 730.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GT 730 v2 MSI OC 2GB Edition is a Special Edition of NVIDIA's Middle-Class GeForce GT 730 v2, created by MSI.

Overclock: Central Unit
The Central Unit now runs at 1006MHz, instead of 902MHz.

Overclock: Memory Clock
None.

Frame Buffer
The Frame Buffer was doubled to 2GB: a gimmick which doesn't yield any performance boost and can be considered marketing to lure consumers into paying more for the same product.

Cooling Solution
Untouched.

Performance
Benchmarks indicate a 5% performance over the reference GeForce GT 730 v2.
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.
