In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 780M are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 735M.

The GeForce GTX 780M has a 196 MHz higher core clock speed and 96 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce GT 735M. This results in the GeForce GTX 780M providing 80.3 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 GeForce GTX 780M has a 196 MHz higher core clock speed and 16 more Render Output Units than the GeForce GT 735M. This results in the GeForce GTX 780M providing 15.5 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 GeForce GTX 780M was released less than a year after the GeForce GT 735M, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The GeForce GTX 780M has 2048 MB more video memory than the GeForce GT 735M, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GeForce GTX 780M also has superior memory performance overall.

The GeForce GTX 780M has 145.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce GT 735M, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce GTX 780M is massively better than the GeForce GT 735M.

The GeForce GT 735M has 384 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 780M has 1536. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce GT 735M is 361 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce GTX 780M is 1224. The GeForce GTX 780M having 863 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce GTX 780M delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce GT 735M.

The GeForce GT 735M requires 17 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 780M requires 122 Watts. The GeForce GTX 780M requires 105 Watts more than the GeForce GT 735M to run. The difference is significant enough that the GeForce GTX 780M may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GeForce GT 735M.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GT 735M is a Middle-Class Mobile 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 GK208 which has 2 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 384 Shader Processing Units, 16 TMUs and 8 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 575MHz and may reach up to 941MHz.

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 Kepler Boost 2.0, Optimus, CUDA, OpenCL, DirectCompute, 3D Vision Surround, PhysX, Realtime Raytracing and other technologies

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 33W, it is suited for small laptops.

Performance
GeForce GT 730M is essentially a fast GeForce GT 645M.
Gaming benchmarks indicate its performance is on average with the older GeForce GT 640M.

System Suggestions
We recommend a modest processor (Intel Core i3 Mobile) and 4GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GT 735M.
Overview
GeForce GTX 780M is a High-End Mobile Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Kepler Architecture.

Architecture
The Kepler Architecture was NVIDIA's big step to power efficiency. Each Stream Multiprocessor (SMX) now hosts 192 Shader Processing Units - against the 48 of older Fermi Architecture, and has been redesigned being now clocked at the same speed of the Central Unit. This means they are more energy efficient and will consequently lead to cooler operating temperatures. However, it also means they are weaker. It can be said that one Fermi SMX is as fast as 2 Kepler SMXs.
Additionally, and not available in all GPUs, Kepler also introduced the Boost Clock Feature. The Boost Clock is an even higher Clock Speed activated when in gaming mode and becomes the effective speed of the GPU.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed GK104-N14E-GTX-A2 which has 8 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 1536 Shader Processing Units, 128 TMUs and 32 ROPs. The Central Unit is initially clocked at 771MHz and goes up to 797MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 4GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 256-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is exaggerated and in no way benefits the GPU. The Memory Clock Operates at 1250MHz.

Features
DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for SLI, Optimus, CUDA, OpenCL, DirectCompute, 3D Vision Surround, PhysX, Realtime Raytracing and other technologies

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 122W, it is suited for very large sized laptops.

Performance
GeForce GTX 780M is a essentially a fast GeForce GTX 680MX.
Gaming benchmarks indicate its performance is slightly better than the older GeForce GTX 680MX.

System Suggestions
We recommend a Power Processor (Intel Core i7 Mobile) and 8GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GTX 780M.
