Gaming Performance Comparison
In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 750 are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 230.
The GeForce GTX 750 has a 370 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce GT 230. This results in the GeForce GTX 750 providing 17 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 750 has a 370 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce GT 230 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GeForce GTX 750 providing 5.9 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 750 was released over three years more recently than the GeForce GT 230, and so the GeForce GTX 750 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GeForce GT 230 when running the latest games.
The GeForce GTX 750 has 512 MB more video memory than the GeForce GT 230, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GeForce GTX 750 also has superior memory performance overall.
The GeForce GTX 750 has 22.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce GT 230, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce GTX 750 is slightly better than the GeForce GT 230.
The GeForce GTX 750 has 512 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GT 230 has 48. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce GTX 750 is 691.2. The GeForce GTX 750 having 643.2 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce GTX 750 delivers a significantly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce GT 230.
The GeForce GTX 750 transistor size technology is 27 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce GT 230. This means that the GeForce GTX 750 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce GT 230.
The GeForce GTX 750 requires 55 Watts to run and the GeForce GT 230 requires 75 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GeForce GTX 750 and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GeForce GT 230. The GeForce GT 230 requires 20 Watts more than the GeForce GTX 750 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GeForce GT 230 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GeForce GTX 750.

|Mini Review||GeForce GTX 750 is a fast-middle-class Graphics Card and one of the first Maxwell based GPUs. |
GeForce GTX 750 offers the GM107 Core with a SMX count of 4 and thus comes with 512 Shader Processing Units, 32 TMUs and only 16 ROPs, this on a 128-bit memory of 1GB of fast GDDR5. While the central unit runs at 1020MHz and goes up to 1085MHz, in Turbo Mode, the memory clock operates at 1250MHz.
GeForce GTX 750 succeeds GeForce GTX 650 and will compete directly with AMD's Radeon R7 260. The card has proven to have huge overclock potential but doing so will increase its very low TDP of just 55W.
Benchmarks indicate its performance is over 30% better than its predecessor's and surpasses largely Radeon R7 260, while factory overclocked versions will surpass the Radeon R7 260X, especially in DirectX 11 based games.
|GeForce GT 230 1GB (first revision) is a middle-class GFX based on the 2009, 55nm, first-generation unified architecture. |
It's based on the G94b Core and offers 48 Shader Processing Units, 24 TMUs and 16 ROPs, on a 256-bit memory interface of standard DDR3. The central unit runs at 650MHz and the memory clock operates at up to 900MHz.
Therefore, it's an overclocked GeForce GT 130 with a larger bus width but that remains within the same power envelope due to being paired with more efficient DDR3.
Today's modern demanding games will have to be played at low or medium settings to achieve fluent frame rates. DirectX 11 games aren't supported.
