In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 750 Ti Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition are significantly better than the AMD Radeon HD 8740 (OEM).

The GTX 750 Ti has a 232 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Texture Mapping Units than the HD 8740. This results in the GTX 750 Ti providing 15.7 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 GTX 750 Ti has a 232 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD 8740 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GTX 750 Ti providing 3.7 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 GTX 750 Ti was released less than a year after the HD 8740, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The GeForce GTX 750 Ti Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition and the Radeon HD 8740 (OEM) have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GTX 750 Ti has 14.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the HD 8740, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 750 Ti is slightly better than the HD 8740.

The GeForce GTX 750 Ti Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition has 640 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 8740 (OEM) has 512. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 750 Ti is 960 and the actual shader performance of the HD 8740 is 348. The GTX 750 Ti having 612 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 750 Ti delivers a significantly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the HD 8740.

The GeForce GTX 750 Ti Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition requires 75 Watts to run and the Radeon HD 8740 (OEM) requires 55 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GTX 750 Ti and a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the HD 8740. The GTX 750 Ti requires 20 Watts more than the HD 8740 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GTX 750 Ti to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the HD 8740.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GTX 750 Ti Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition is a Special Edition of NVIDIA's Fast-Middle-Class GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB, created by Gigabyte.

Overclock: Central Unit
The Central Unit is now of 1032MHz, instead of 1020MHz, while the Boost Clock achieves 1111MHz, instead of 1085MHz.

Overclock: Memory Clock

Frame Buffer
The Frame Buffer was Halved to 1GB. This will become a serious problem if attempting to use GeForce GTX 750 Ti for 1080p Gaming and in games that require large amounts of Video Memory for Texturing Purposes.
Still, the Performance Decrease by Halving the Frame Buffer is Practically unnoticeable in most gaming scenarios, since the GPU itself is the main bottleneck.

Cooling Solution
Custom-designed 100mm Cooler.

Expect no Performance Boost over the Reference GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB.
Radeon HD 8740 (OEM) is an OEM Only, Fast-Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the First Revision of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture.

The GCN Architecture succeeds the 40nm Terascale Architecture. In addition to being produced with a 28nm Technology, the GCN Architecture adds other Technologies that allow for energy efficiency. For example, ZeroCore Power, a long idle power saving technology, allows the Graphics Cards to shut down by itself when the Monitor is turned off.
GCN also adds Improved Anisotropic Filtering, DirectX 11 Tessellation and the Partially Resident Textures (PRT) Technology, which enables future games to utilize ultra-high resolution textures with the same performance as today's small and often repetitive textures.

It equips a GPU Codenamed Cape Verde PRO which has 8 Compute Units activated and thus offers 512 Shader Processing Units, 32 TMUs and 16 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 800MHz.

The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 256-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 1125MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 55W, it requires at least a 400W PSU and relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power, meaning no extra connectors are required.

Radeon HD 8740 (OEM) is a Direct Rebrand of Radeon HD 7750 and performs exactly like it.

System Suggestions
Radeon HD 8740 (OEM) is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1600x900. We recommend a Decent Processor (Intel Core i3 Quad Core/AMD FX Quad Core) and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
