In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GT 740 v2 Asus OC 2GB Edition are marginally better than the AMD Radeon HD 7750 PowerColor 1GB Edition.

The GT 740 has a 233 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the HD 7750. This results in the GT 740 providing 7.5 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 GT 740 has a 233 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD 7750 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GT 740 providing 3.7 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 GT 740 was released over a year more recently than the HD 7750, and so the GT 740 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the HD 7750.

The GT 740 has 1024 MB more video memory than the HD 7750, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GT 740 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GT 740 has 8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the HD 7750, which means that the memory performance of the GT 740 is marginally better than the HD 7750.

The GeForce GT 740 v2 Asus OC 2GB Edition has 384 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 7750 PowerColor 1GB Edition has 512. However, the actual shader performance of the GT 740 is 397 and the actual shader performance of the HD 7750 is 348. The GT 740 having 49 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GT 740 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the HD 7750.

The GeForce GT 740 v2 Asus OC 2GB Edition requires 64 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Radeon HD 7750 PowerColor 1GB Edition. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GT 740 and a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the HD 7750. The two GPUs have been recommended a PSU with the same amount of wattage. As such, there is no need to worry about which will more significantly affect your yearly electricity bills.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce GT 740 v2 Asus OC 2GB 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 1033MHz, while the memory clock was left untouched.
Furthermore, the frame buffer was doubled to 2GB 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 slight performance boost of up to 2% making it almost 1% faster than a GeForce GTX 650.
Radeon HD 7750 PowerColor 1GB Edition is a special edition of Radeon HD 7750.
The only new feature is a more effective and silent cooler which will keep the noise level down and keep Radeon HD 7750 PowerColor 1GB Edition cooler.
These changes don't affect the performance directly and so its performance is on level with the standard version.
