In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon R5 340 (OEM) are marginally better than the Nvidia GeForce 9800 GT.

The R5 340 has a 200 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce 9800 GT, but the GeForce 9800 GT has 36 more Texture Mapping Units than the R5 340. As a result, the GeForce 9800 GT exhibits a 17.6 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the R5 340. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The R5 340 has a 200 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce 9800 GT, but the GeForce 9800 GT has 8 more Render Output Units than the R5 340. As a result, the GeForce 9800 GT exhibits a 3.2 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the R5 340. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The R5 340 was released over three years more recently than the GeForce 9800 GT, and so the R5 340 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GeForce 9800 GT when running the latest games.

The R5 340 has 1536 MB more video memory than the GeForce 9800 GT, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the R5 340 also has superior memory performance overall.

The R5 340 has 14.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce 9800 GT, which means that the memory performance of the R5 340 is slightly better than the GeForce 9800 GT.

The Radeon R5 340 (OEM) has 320 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 9800 GT has 112. However, the actual shader performance of the R5 340 is 224 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 9800 GT is 168. The R5 340 having 56 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the R5 340 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce 9800 GT.

The R5 340 transistor size technology is 37 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce 9800 GT. This means that the R5 340 is expected to run much cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce 9800 GT. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the R5 340 should consume less power than the GeForce 9800 GT.

The Radeon R5 340 (OEM) requires 65 Watts to run and the GeForce 9800 GT requires 105 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the R5 340 and a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GeForce 9800 GT. The GeForce 9800 GT requires 40 Watts more than the R5 340 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GeForce 9800 GT may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the R5 340.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Radeon R5 340 (OEM) is an OEM only, Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the second revision of the Graphics Core Next Architecture.

Architecture
The GCN 1.1 revision of the Graphics Core Next Architecture adds new important technologies and is largely oriented for energy efficiency. New technologies such as PowerTune and TrueAudio are the biggest additions as well as DirectX 11.2 support.

GPU
It equips a GPU codenamed Oland PRO previously used on Radeon R5 240. It offers 320 Shader Processing Units, 20 TMUs and 8 ROPs. The central unit runs at 800MHz and goes up to 825MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, 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 1125MHz.

Features
DirectX 12.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for Crossfire, Mantle, PowerTune, Eyefinity, ZeroCore, HD3D, App Acceleration and other technologies.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 65W, it requires at least a 450W PSU and relies entirely on the PCI slot for power.

Performance
Radeon R5 340 (OEM) is essentially a fast Radeon R7 240 V2. Therefore, its performance stands somewhere between Radeon R7 240 V2 and the faster Radeon R7 250.

System Suggestions
We recommend a Modest Dual Core Processor (Intel Core i3 Quad Core/AMD FX Quad Core) and 4GB of RAM for a system with Radeon R5 340 (OEM).
Overview
GeForce 9800 GT is a High-End Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Tesla Architecture.

Architecture
Tesla was NVIDIA's First Unified Shader Architecture.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed G92-270-A2 which has 7 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 112 Shader Processing Units, 56 TMUs and 16 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 600MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 512MB frame buffer of GDDR3, through a 256-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 900MHz.

Features
DirectX 10.0 Support (10.0 Hardware Default) and support for SLI, NVIDIA PureVideo HD Technology, Dual-stream Hardware Acceleration, PhysX, CUDA, HybridPower and other technologies.

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

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 105W, it requires at least a 400W PSU and it requires at least one 6-pin available connectors.

Performance
GeForce 9800 GT is a direct re-brand of GeForce 8800 GT.
Gaming benchmarks put its performance somewhat below a Radeon HD 4770, meaning it is much faster than Radeon HD 3870.
