In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GT 730 v2 Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition are noticeably better than the Intel HD i5 6500T.

The GT 730 has a 656 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the HD i5 6500T. This results in the GT 730 providing 10.5 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 656 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD i5 6500T and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GT 730 providing 5.2 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 i5 6500T 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 GT 730 has 1024 MB video memory, but the HD i5 6500T does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The GeForce GT 730 v2 Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition has 384 Shader Processing Units and the HD i5 6500T has 24. However, the actual shader performance of the GT 730 is 386 and the actual shader performance of the HD i5 6500T is 211. The GT 730 having 175 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 i5 6500T.

The HD i5 6500T transistor size technology is 14 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GT 730. This means that the HD i5 6500T is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GT 730.

The GeForce GT 730 v2 Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition requires 49 Watts to run and the HD i5 6500T requires 35 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 HD i5 6500T. The GT 730 requires 14 Watts more than the HD i5 6500T 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 HD i5 6500T.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GT 730 v2 Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition is a Special Edition of NVIDIA's Middle-Class GeForce GT 730 v2, created by Gigabyte.

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

Overclock: Memory Clock
None.

Frame Buffer
Untouched.

Cooling Solution
GIGABYTE 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
Benchmarks indicate a 5% performance over the reference GeForce GT 730 v2.
Overview
Intel HD i5 6500T is the specific version of Intel HD Graphics 530 Desktop that is integrated in the Core i5-6500T 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-R0 which offers 24 Shader Processing Units, 16 TMUs and 8 ROPs. The Central Unit Initially Runs at 350MHz and goes up to 1100MHz, 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 i5 6500T is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1366x768. We recommend a Decent Processor and 4GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
