Geforce GTX 760 vs Geforce GTX 770

Intro

The Geforce GTX 760 uses a 28 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core speed at 980 MHz. The GDDR5 memory works at a frequency of 1502 MHz on this particular card. It features 1152 SPUs along with 96 Texture Address Units and 32 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the Geforce GTX 770, which features GPU core speed of 1046 MHz, and 2048 MB of GDDR5 RAM set to run at 1753 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is made up of 1536 Stream Processors, 128 Texture Address Units, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Geforce GTX 760 170 Watts
Geforce GTX 770 230 Watts
Difference: 60 Watts (35%)

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the Geforce GTX 770 should be 17% quicker than the Geforce GTX 760 in general, because of its higher bandwidth. (explain)

Geforce GTX 770 224384 MB/sec
Geforce GTX 760 192256 MB/sec
Difference: 32128 (17%)

Texel Rate

The Geforce GTX 770 is a lot (about 42%) better at texture filtering than the Geforce GTX 760. (explain)

Geforce GTX 770 133888 Mtexels/sec
Geforce GTX 760 94080 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 39808 (42%)

Pixel Rate

If running with lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the Geforce GTX 770 is superior to the Geforce GTX 760, but not by far. (explain)

Geforce GTX 770 33472 Mpixels/sec
Geforce GTX 760 31360 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 2112 (7%)

Please note that the above 'benchmarks' are all just theoretical - the results were calculated based on the card's specifications, and real-world performance may (and probably will) vary at least a bit.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the max amount of data (counted in MB per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface in a second. It's worked out by multiplying the interface width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be applied per second. This is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the video card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics card could possibly record to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.

thanks so much for this information.....

Wow, the GTX770 almost isn't worth the extra price.

Both my GTX760's is currently at 1,294mhz core and 1732mhz mem (6928mhz effective). Though my primay 760 will do 1840mhz (Elpida) (7360mhz effective).

770 has more cuda cores. Really the price to performance just isn't there, same with power. Kinda glad I didn't buy the 770.

The 760 vs 770 isn;'t really worth it, but the 770 vs 780, its bigger jump, so it looks a bit more appealing.

Not a big difference you say? almost double the fps on every game with my 770 compared to my 760. People may want to consider the 970s now but I still prefer a 780
