In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 MSI TwinFrozr Gaming OC 4GB Edition are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 740 v2 EVGA Superclocked 1GB Edition.

The GT 740 and the GTX 760 have the same core clock speed of 1085 MHz, but the GTX 760 has 64 more Texture Mapping Units than the GT 740. As a result, the GTX 760 exhibits a 69.5 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GT 740. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GT 740 and the GTX 760 have the same core clock speed of 1085 MHz, but the GTX 760 has 16 more Render Output Units than the GT 740. As a result, the GTX 760 exhibits a 17.3 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GT 740. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GT 740 was released less than a year after the GTX 760, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The GTX 760 has 3072 MB more video memory than the GT 740, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GTX 760 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 760 has 112.3 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GT 740, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 760 is massively better than the GT 740.

The GeForce GT 740 v2 EVGA Superclocked 1GB Edition has 384 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 760 MSI TwinFrozr Gaming OC 4GB Edition has 1152. However, the actual shader performance of the GT 740 is 417 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 760 is 1325. The GTX 760 having 908 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 760 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GT 740.

The GeForce GT 740 v2 EVGA Superclocked 1GB Edition requires 64 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 760 MSI TwinFrozr Gaming OC 4GB Edition requires 170 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GT 740 and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the GTX 760. The GTX 760 requires 106 Watts more than the GT 740 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 760 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GT 740.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce GT 740 v2 EVGA Superclocked 1GB Edition is a special edition of the middle-class GeForce GT 740 v2.
This edition comes with a custom cooling solution which will not yield any performance boost, as GeForce GT 740 v2 does not benefit from the GPU Boost 2.0 technology.
Also, it has been overclocked out of the box from 993MHz to 1085MHz, while the memory clock was left untouched.
Benchmarks indicate a significant performance boost of up to 9% making it almost 3% faster than a GeForce GTX 650.
GeForce GTX 760 MSI TwinFrozr Gaming OC 4GB Edition a special edition of GeForce GTX 760.
This edition comes with a custom dual-fan cooling solution which by itself should allow a slight performance boost, as GeForce GTX 760 benefits from the GPU Boost 2.0 technology.
Also, it has been overclocked out of the box from 980MHz to 1085MHz while its boost clock is now of 1150MHz. The memory clock was left untouched. Furthermore, the frame buffer was doubled to 4GB though this will not boost its performance and can be addressed as a gimmick - marketing to lure consumers into paying more for the same product.
Benchmarks indicate a 7% performance boost when compared to the reference card and so this edition performs on level with GeForce GTX 670.
