In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 7730 are noticeably better than the AMD Radeon R7 240 2GB.

The Radeon HD 7730 has a 70 MHz higher core clock speed and 4 more Texture Mapping Units than the R7 240. This results in the Radeon HD 7730 providing 4.6 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 Radeon HD 7730 has a 70 MHz higher core clock speed than the R7 240 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the Radeon HD 7730 providing 0.6 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 R7 240 was released less than a year after the Radeon HD 7730, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The R7 240 has 1024 MB more video memory than the Radeon HD 7730, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the Radeon HD 7730 has superior memory performance.

The Radeon HD 7730 has 43.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the R7 240, which means that the memory performance of the Radeon HD 7730 is noticeably better than the R7 240.

The Radeon R7 240 2GB has 320 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 7730 has 384. However, the actual shader performance of the R7 240 is 212 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 7730 is 261. The Radeon HD 7730 having 49 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Radeon HD 7730 delivers a noticeably smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the R7 240.

The Radeon R7 240 2GB requires 30 Watts to run and the Radeon HD 7730 requires 47 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the R7 240 and a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the Radeon HD 7730. The Radeon HD 7730 requires 17 Watts more than the R7 240 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the Radeon HD 7730 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the R7 240.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewNote: This Graphics Card has 2 variants: one with DDR3 and another with GDDR5. This is the DDR3 Version.

Radeon R7 240 2GB offers a core codenamed Oland PRO and thus features 320 Shader Processing Units, 20 TMUs and 8 ROPs, on a 128-bit bus width of standard DDR3. While the central unit runs at 730MHz and goes up to 780MHz, in Turbo Mode, the memory clock operates at 900MHz.
With a rated board TDP of 30W, it requires no extra power connectors.

Compared to Radeon R7 250, its performance is significantly lower (over 25% slower), especially at higher resolutions due to the limited memory bandwidth. Still, the TDP is relatively low and so this card may be used on low end systems and offer a reasonable upgrade, when compared to integrated graphics.
Overview
Radeon HD 7730 is a Fast-Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the First revision of the GCN Architecture.

Architecture
The GCN Architecture succeeds the 40nm Terascale Architecture. In addition to being produced with a 28nm Technology, the GCN Architecture adds other Technologies that allow for energy efficiency. For example, ZeroCore Power, a long idle power saving technology, allows the Graphics Cards to shut down by itself when the Monitor is turned off.
GCN also adds Improved Anisotropic Filtering, DirectX 11 Tessellation and the Partially Resident Textures (PRT) Technology, which enables future games to utilize ultra-high resolution textures with the same performance as today's small and often repetitive textures.

GPU
It equips a GPU codenamed Cape Verde LE which has 6 Compute Units activated and thus offers 384 Shader Processing Units, 24 TMUs and 8 ROPs. The Central Unit Operates at 800MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The memory clock operates at 1125MHz.

Features
DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for Crossfire, PowerTune Technology, Eyefinity, App Acceleration, HD3D, ZeroCore Power and other technologies.

Cooling Solution
The Cooling Solution consists of a Single-Fan.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 47W, it requires at least a 400W PSU and it relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power, meaning no extra connectors are required.

Performance
Gaming benchmarks put its performance somewhat above a GeForce GT 640.

System Suggestions
We recommend a modest processor (Intel Core i3) and 8GB of RAM for a system with Radeon HD 7730.
