In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 580 are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 730.

The GeForce GT 730 has a 130 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce GTX 580, but the GeForce GTX 580 has 48 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce GT 730. As a result, the GeForce GTX 580 exhibits a 35 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GeForce GT 730. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GeForce GT 730 has a 130 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce GTX 580, but the GeForce GTX 580 has 40 more Render Output Units than the GeForce GT 730. As a result, the GeForce GTX 580 exhibits a 29.9 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GeForce GT 730. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GeForce GT 730 was released over three years more recently than the GeForce GTX 580, and so the GeForce GT 730 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GeForce GTX 580 when running the latest games.

The GeForce GT 730 has 512 MB more video memory than the GeForce GTX 580, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the GeForce GTX 580 has superior memory performance.

The GeForce GTX 580 has 178 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce GT 730, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce GTX 580 is massively better than the GeForce GT 730.

The GeForce GT 730 has 384 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 580 has 512. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce GT 730 is 346 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce GTX 580 is 791. The GeForce GTX 580 having 445 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce GTX 580 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce GT 730.

The GeForce GT 730 transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce GTX 580. This means that the GeForce GT 730 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce GTX 580.

The GeForce GT 730 requires 23 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 580 requires 244 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GeForce GT 730 and a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the GeForce GTX 580. The GeForce GTX 580 requires 221 Watts more than the GeForce GT 730 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GeForce GTX 580 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GeForce GT 730.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GT 730 is Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the second revision of the Kepler Architecture.

Architecture
This Graphics Card Equips the Kepler GK208 GPU which is essentially a power optimized version of the GK107 GPU. Whereas it still has a count of 2 Stream Multiprocessors, the bus-width has been cut in half to allow for even a smaller power consumption and consequently a cooler operating temperature.
Additionally, the GK208 GPU allows the Central Unit to reach a significant higher frequency, thanks to the Kepler Boost 2.0 Technology. The better the laptop's cooling system, the higher the frequency.

GPU
It equips a GPU codenamed Kepler GK208-301-A1 which has 2 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 384 Shader Processing Units, 16 TMUs and 8 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 902MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 64-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is exaggerated and in no way benefits the GPU. The Memory Clock Operates at 900MHz.

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 is a direct re-brand of GeForce GT 630 v3.
Gaming benchmarks put its performance somewhat above the older GeForce GT 530.

System Suggestions
We recommend a Modest Processor (Pentium) and 4GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GT 730.
Overview
GeForce GTX 580 is a High-End Graphics Card based on the Fermi Architecture.

Architecture
The Fermi Architecture was first manufactured with a 40nm technology and uses a technique known as Hot Clocking: The Shaders are clocked twice as fast as the Central Unit. While this leads to a reasonable performance boost, it causes enormous amounts of energy dissipation, leading, ultimately, to a significantly higher operating temperature.
Fermi is also the first GPU architecture with fully cached memory access which increases memory performance.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed GF110-375-A1 which has 16 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 512 Shader Processing Units, 64 TMUs and 48 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 772MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 1.5GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 384-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 1002Hz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 244W, it requires at least a 600W PSU with one available 6-pin and one available 8-pin connectors.

Performance
GeForce GTX 580 competes with Radeon HD 6970 and proves to be around 10% faster.

System Suggestions
GeForce GTX 580 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080. We recommend a Decent Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
