i just bought a gt 740 but i bought it because it is 20 bucks cheaper then r7 250. i would call this comparison a draw. they have same performance and they both have an extra software support (mantle and physx).
I have Nvidia GeForce GT 740. See the 3D. Works very quite and not using 6 or 8 pins cables. Just works perfectly. I don't have any problem with the card. Screen is very sharp looking. 4K smooth works. Very good card for many games. My best card ever. Price and performance DX12 pci3.0 from one of latest cards.
Probably thanks to Nvidia's PhysX. AMD is better at Bitcoin mining and such, but PhysX is great for gaming and thus more popular in benchmarks.
i don't why nVidia always wins
I don t know whats better but I think they are in the rang
