Game GeForce RTX 2080 Ti SLI GeForce GT 740 v2 Gigabyte OC 2GB Edition

In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti SLI are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 740 v2 Gigabyte OC 2GB Edition.

The RTX 2080 Ti has a 278 MHz higher core clock speed and 240 more Texture Mapping Units than the GT 740. This results in the RTX 2080 Ti providing 332.9 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 RTX 2080 Ti has a 278 MHz higher core clock speed and 72 more Render Output Units than the GT 740. This results in the RTX 2080 Ti providing 101.6 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 RTX 2080 Ti was released over three years more recently than the GT 740, and so the RTX 2080 Ti is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GT 740 when running the latest games.

The RTX 2080 Ti has 9216 MB more video memory than the GT 740, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the RTX 2080 Ti also has superior memory performance overall.

The RTX 2080 Ti has 536 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GT 740, which means that the memory performance of the RTX 2080 Ti is massively better than the GT 740.

The GeForce RTX 2080 Ti SLI has 4352 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GT 740 v2 Gigabyte OC 2GB Edition has 384. However, the actual shader performance of the RTX 2080 Ti is 7116 and the actual shader performance of the GT 740 is 412. The RTX 2080 Ti having 6704 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the RTX 2080 Ti delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GT 740.

The RTX 2080 Ti transistor size technology is 16 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GT 740. This means that the RTX 2080 Ti is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GT 740.

The GeForce RTX 2080 Ti SLI requires 260 Watts to run and the GeForce GT 740 v2 Gigabyte OC 2GB Edition requires 64 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 650 Watts for the RTX 2080 Ti and a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GT 740. The RTX 2080 Ti requires 196 Watts more than the GT 740 to run. The difference is significant enough that the RTX 2080 Ti may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GT 740.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview GeForce RTX 2080 Ti is the top RTX 20 Series graphics card and considered an Enthusiast graphics card based on the Turing architecture. Architecture The Turing architecture represents a process shrink down to 12nm compared to 14nm Pascal. The Turing architecture provides the world's first consumer support for real-time ray-tracing technology, or RTX. GPU It equips a GPU Codenamed TU102 which has 4352 Shader Processing Units, 272 TMUs and 88 ROPs. The central unit runs at 1350MHz and goes up to 1545MHz in Boost mode. It also has 544 Tensor Cores for AI purposes. Memory The GPU accesses an 11GB frame buffer of first-gen GDDR6 memory through a 352-bit memory interface, while the Memory clock operates at 1750MHz, or 14GHz effective. Power Consumption With a rated board TDP of 285W, it requires at least a 650W PSU with two 8-pin power connectors. System Suggestions GeForce RTX 2080 Ti is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840x2160. We recommend a top-End Processor and at least 16GB of RAM for optimal performance.Overview
GeForce GT 740 v2 Gigabyte OC 2GB Edition is a Special Edition of NVIDIA's Middle-Class GeForce GT 740 v2, created by Gigabyte.

Overclock: Central Unit
The Central Unit is now of 1072MHz, instead of 993MHz.

Overclock: Memory Clock

Frame Buffer
The Frame Buffer was doubled to 2GB. In some situations, this could be useful. However, and because the GPU itself is not capable of 1080p Gaming, 2GB might be mostly a Gimmick.

Cooling Solution
Triangle Cool fansink integrates a patented triangle-shaped aluminum block into the aluminum extrusion module. The triangle design not only minimizes the turbulence between extruded aluminum fins, but also enhances heat dissipation to improve cooling efficiency for the whole fansink.
