In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GT 730 v2 are noticeably better than the Intel HD i3 6300T.

The GT 730 has a 552 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the HD i3 6300T. This results in the GT 730 providing 8.8 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 552 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD i3 6300T and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GT 730 providing 4.4 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 HD i3 6300T was released over a year more recently than the GT 730, and so the HD i3 6300T is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GT 730.

The GT 730 has 1024 MB video memory, but the HD i3 6300T does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The HD i3 6300T has 24 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GT 730 v2 has 384. However, the actual shader performance of the HD i3 6300T is 182 and the actual shader performance of the GT 730 is 346. The GT 730 having 164 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GT 730 delivers a slightly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the HD i3 6300T.

The HD i3 6300T transistor size technology is 14 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GT 730. This means that the HD i3 6300T is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GT 730.

The HD i3 6300T requires 35 Watts to run and the GeForce GT 730 v2 requires 25 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the HD i3 6300T and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 730. The HD i3 6300T requires 10 Watts more than the GT 730 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the HD i3 6300T to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GT 730.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Intel HD i3 6300T is the specific version of Intel HD Graphics 530 Desktop that is integrated in the Core i3-6300T Processor.

Architecture
The Skylake Core includes support for DirectX 12.1, OpenCL 2.0 and OpenGL 4.4. Additionally, it also supports DDR4 Memory.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed GT2-S0 which offers 24 Shader Processing Units, 16 TMUs and 8 ROPs. The Central Unit Initially Runs at 350MHz and goes up to 950MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory
The GPU Shares the System's RAM which varies from laptop to laptop. Typically, the GPU reserves 1.7GB. Depending on whether or not the system's RAM is Dual-Channeled, it can access either a 64-bit or 128-bit memory interface. The operating memory clock also depends on the at which speed the System's RAM is running and is limited by the highest operating speed that the Processor supports. In this case, it is 1067MHz.
It is then obvious the Memory Bandwidth depends on a lot of factors and thus this Graphics Card performance may vary heavily from system to system.

Performance
Gaming benchmarks put its performance almost on level with a dedicated GeForce 920M.

System Suggestions
Intel HD i3 6300T is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1366x768. We recommend a Decent Processor and 4GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
Overview
GeForce GT 730 v2 is a Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Kepler Architecture.

Architecture
The Kepler Architecture was NVIDIA's big step to power efficiency. Each Stream Multiprocessor (SMX) now hosts 192 Shader Processing Units - against the 48 of older Fermi Architecture, and has been redesigned being now clocked at the same speed of the Central Unit. This means they are more energy efficient and will consequently lead to cooler operating temperatures. However, it also means they are weaker. It can be said that one Fermi SMX is as fast as 2 Kepler SMXs.
Additionally, and not available in all GPUs, Kepler also introduced the Boost Clock Feature. The Boost Clock is an even higher Clock Speed activated when in gaming mode and becomes the effective speed of the GPU.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed Kepler GK208-301-A1 which has 2 Stream Multiprocessor activated and thus offers 384 Shader Processing Units, 32 TMUs and 16 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 902MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 64-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 1250MHz.

Features
DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for Optimus, CUDA, OpenCL, DirectCompute, 3D Vision Surround, PhysX, Realtime Raytracing and other technologies

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 25W, it requires at least a 300W PSU and it relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power, meaning no extra connectors are required.

Performance
GeForce GT 730 v2 is a direct re-brand of GeForce GT 640 v2.
Gaming benchmarks put its performance on average with Radeon HD 6670.

System Suggestions
We recommend a Modest Processor (Intel Core i3) and 8GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GT 730 v2.
