Guys it depends on your use. Look if u play games like PUBG nd Fortnite etc, there is no way u can compare them both cuz both have approx. Same specs nd features so u wont be finding that one is inferior to another. G90t is higher in graphics but 720g is higher in speed.

I think gpu performance not only affects gaming but also in graphics performance, camera, visualisation, new optimisations. So I like g90t.
