Interestingly enough, NVIDIA presented almost simultaneously two new graphics cards for two totally opposite niches. If the Titan -Z is the most powerful and expensive graphics card, the GeForce GT 740 belongs to the same input range of graphics cards. This is a rebranding of the existing GeForce GT 640, based on the NVIDIA GK107 Kepler chip architecture.

The NVIDIA GeForce GT 740 card has 384 CUDA Cores, 32 TMUs and 16 ROPs, with 1 and 2 GB versions of GDDR5 memory and a memory interface of 128 bits. Its TDP is only 64W, and there will be models that won’t require and additional power connector from the power supply, and for the models that need a PCI- Express 6-pin connector to work (mainly the ones with factory overclocking and 2GB memory).

As you will suppose by seeing this technical specifications, these graphics cards are fairly basic and designed to provide a slightly higher performance than the current integrated graphics cards. NVIDIA hopes to gain market share in this niche of graphic cards under $100, competing with APUs AMD A- Series integrated graphics and Iris Intel Pro 5000 Series.

Already many manufacturers like MSI, ASUS and Palit ave submitted their custom models and, of course, with factory overclock, reaching speed values ​​in the core up to 1058 Mhz at its best. NVIDIA has presented a performance graph comparing its GeForce GT 740 in relation to Intel HD integrated graphics, specifically the Intel processor G3220 model.

According to NVIDIA, these GT 740 PC cards improve considerably multimedia performance in comparison with the Intel HD integrated graphics, achieving photo editing up to 13 times faster. They also indicated that web browsing is up to 9 times faster, though I must say that they make this affirmation based on the quality of U.S. Internet connections, because in other parts of the world this depends more on the connection than the card itself…
