GeForce GT 740 v2 Gigabyte OC 2GB Edition Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
GeForce GT 740 v2 Gigabyte OC 2GB Edition is a Special Edition of NVIDIA's Middle-Class GeForce GT 740 v2, created by Gigabyte.


Overclock: Central Unit
The Central Unit is now of 1072MHz, instead of 993MHz.


Overclock: Memory Clock
None.


Frame Buffer
The Frame Buffer was doubled to 2GB. In some situations, this could be useful.
However, and because the GPU itself is not capable of 1080p Gaming, 2GB might be mostly a Gimmick.


Cooling Solution
“Triangle Cool” fansink integrates a patented triangle-shaped aluminum block into the aluminum extrusion module. The triangle design not only minimizes the turbulence between extruded aluminum fins, but also enhances heat dissipation to improve cooling efficiency for the whole fansink.


Performance
Benchmarks Indicate a 8% Performance Boost over the Reference GeForce GT 740 v2.

And they say "and because the GPU itself is not capable of 1080p Gaming",it's not true. I play Metal Gear Solid V and lots of other games on 1920x1080 with a good FPS.

According to the homesite, it doesn't require any Power Connector, even if the Slot is available. The Rated Board TDP which is below 75W also suggests the same.
