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 350 MHz higher core clock speed and 24 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce GT 230. This results in the GeForce GTX 750 providing 32.4 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 350 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Render Output Units than the GeForce GT 230. This results in the GeForce GTX 750 providing 13.6 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 1024 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 62.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce GT 230, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce GTX 750 is much better than the GeForce GT 230.
The GeForce GTX 750 has 576 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GT 230 has 48. The GeForce GTX 750 having 528 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce GTX 750 delivers a massively 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 75 Watts to run and the GeForce GT 230 requires 75 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GeForce GT 230, but we do not have a recommended PSU wattage for the GeForce GTX 750. The two GPUs require the same amount of wattage to run. As such, there is no need to worry about which will more significantly affect your yearly electricity bills.

|Mini Review||GeForce GTX 750 is an upcoming fast-middle-class GFX that's expected to be based on the Kepler architecture. |
It's expected to feature the Kepler GK117 Core and therefore offer 576 Shader Processing Units, 48 TMUs and 24 ROPs on a 192-bit memory interface of fast GDDR5.
Both its specifications and rank are not final subject to change.
|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.
