In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 750 Zotac 1GB Edition are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 745 (OEM).

The GTX 745 and the GTX 750 have both the same core clock speed and the same Texture Fill Rate. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GTX 745 and the GTX 750 have both the same core clock speed and the same Pixel Fill Rate. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

Both the GeForce GTX 745 (OEM) and the GeForce GTX 750 Zotac 1GB Edition were released at the same time, so are likely to be quite similar.

The GTX 745 has 3072 MB more video memory than the GTX 750, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the GTX 750 has superior memory performance.

The GTX 750 has 51.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 745, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 750 is much better than the GTX 745.

The GeForce GTX 745 (OEM) has 384 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 750 Zotac 1GB Edition has 512. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 745 is 536 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 750 is 768. The GTX 750 having 232 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 750 delivers a significantly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 745.

The GeForce GTX 745 (OEM) requires 55 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 750 Zotac 1GB Edition requires 55 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GTX 745 and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the 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.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GTX 745 is an OEM only, Fast-Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the First Variant of the Maxwell architecture.

Architecture
The first variant of the Maxwell Architecture succeeds the Kepler Architecture. Despite being also manufactured with a 28nm technology, it has an extremely large L2 Cache which allows NVIDIA to produce Graphics Cards with relatively small memory data transfer rates, without causing too much impact on the overall performance. Furthermore, the Shaders have been redesigned and are both more powerful and energy efficient.

GPU
It equips a GPU codenamed GM107-300-A2 which has 3 SM activated and thus offers 384 Shader Processing Units, 24 TMUs and 16 ROPs, on a 128-bit memory interface of DDR3. The central unit runs at 1033MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 4GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 128-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 11.2 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for GameStream, G-SYNC, GPU Boost 2.0, GeForce Experience, PhysX and other technologies.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 55W, it requires at least a 300W PSU and relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power.

Performance
Benchmarks Indicate Good Performance at resolutions up to 1920x1080.
However, even at 1920x1080 GeForce GTX 750 is still considerably faster.

System Suggestions
We recommend a considerably strong processor (Intel Core i3 Dual Core/AMD FX Quad Core) and 8GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GTX 745.
GeForce GTX 750 Zotac 1GB Edition is a special edition of the fast-middle-class GeForce GTX 750.
This edition comes with a custom cooling cooling solution which by itself will allow a slight performance boost, as GeForce GTX 750 benefits from the GPU Boost 2.0 technology.
Furthermore, it comes overclocked out of the box in the central unit that was raised from 1020MHz to 1033MHz, while the Turbo Boost is now of 1111MHz, instead of 1085MHz. The operating memory clock was left untouched.
Further overclocking can be achieved easily, as the GPU has great OC potential.
Benchmarks indicate its performance is around 1% better than the reference NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 and thus Radeon R7 260X is still faster.
