In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 470 Golden Sample Edition are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 710 v2 EVGA Passive 2GB Edition.

The GT 710 has a 304 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 470, but the GTX 470 has 40 more Texture Mapping Units than the GT 710. As a result, the GTX 470 exhibits a 21.1 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GT 710. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GT 710 has a 304 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 470, but the GTX 470 has 32 more Render Output Units than the GT 710. As a result, the GTX 470 exhibits a 18.4 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GT 710. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GT 710 was released over three years more recently than the GTX 470, and so the GT 710 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GTX 470 when running the latest games.

The GT 710 has 768 MB more video memory than the GTX 470, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the GTX 470 has superior memory performance.

The GTX 470 has 121.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GT 710, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 470 is massively better than the GT 710.

The GeForce GT 710 v2 EVGA Passive 2GB Edition has 192 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 470 Golden Sample Edition has 448. However, the actual shader performance of the GT 710 is 183 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 470 is 582. The GTX 470 having 399 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 470 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GT 710.

The GT 710 transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 470. This means that the GT 710 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 470.

The GeForce GT 710 v2 EVGA Passive 2GB Edition requires 25 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 470 Golden Sample Edition requires 215 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 710 and a PSU with at least 550 Watts for the GTX 470. The GTX 470 requires 190 Watts more than the GT 710 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 470 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GT 710.
