In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 960 Gigabyte OC 2GB 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 GTX 960, 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 GTX 960.

The GeForce GTX 960 Gigabyte OC 2GB Edition and the GeForce GT 930 2GB have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GTX 960 has 96.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GT 930, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 960 is massively better than the GT 930.

The GeForce GTX 960 Gigabyte OC 2GB Edition has 1024 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GT 930 2GB has 384. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 960 is 1732 and the actual shader performance of the GT 930 is 0. The GTX 960 having 1732 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 960 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GT 930.

The GeForce GTX 960 Gigabyte OC 2GB Edition requires 120 Watts to run and the GeForce GT 930 2GB requires 35 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GTX 960 and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 930. The GTX 960 requires 85 Watts more than the GT 930 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 960 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GT 930.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GTX 960 Gigabyte OC 2GB Edition is a special edition of NVIDIA's Performance GeForce GTX 960 2GB, created by Gigabyte.

Overclock: Central Unit
The Central Unit now runs at 1190MHz, instead of 1127MHz and goes up to 1253MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Overclock: Memory Clock
None.

Cooling Solution
The reference NVIDIA Single-Fan Cooling System has been replaced by Gigabyte's WINDFORCE 2X With Unique Blade Fan which is Equipped with two 90mm unique blade fan and three copper heat pipes. The airflow is split 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.

Performance
Benchmarks indicate a 3% performance over the reference GeForce GTX 960 2GB.
Overview
GeForce GT 930 2GB is an upcoming middle-class Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Maxwell architecture.

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.

GPU
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.

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

Cooling Solution
Coming Soon!

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 35W, it requires at least a 300W PSU and relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power.
