GeForce GTX 660 vs Geforce GTX 760


Intro

The GeForce GTX 660 uses a 28 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 980 MHz. The GDDR5 memory works at a speed of 1502 MHz on this card. It features 960 SPUs along with 80 TAUs and 24 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare all of that to the Geforce GTX 760, which features clock speeds of 980 MHz on the GPU, and 1502 MHz on the 2048 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 1152 SPUs as well as 96 Texture Address Units and 32 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of information (counted in MB per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface within a second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and high resolutions.

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

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

The gtx 760 is a lot more expensive but I think it is worth it.

Dat guy says:

At current UK prices the 760 is around 30 pounds more expensive than the 660 and I'd be happy to spend that much for the performance gain.

Jessy says:

I shouldv'e gotten this 760. But at the time, I just needed a new GPU when mine was a 610... -_- But I do intend to get a new one soon so we'll see. 🙂

Raj says:

Anybody thinking that 760 will give a performance edge enough to justify the price difference certainly does not knows anything about Graphic Cards

@Raj says:

I think that you don't know anything about graphics cards

KHAWAR ZAMAN says:

192bit can not run more games in 1080p setting. lol

Deus says:

Khawar, you're wrong, the bitrate doesn't influence the resolution as much as the available memory on the card. IE. 192bit 3GB card will render 1080 fine, a 265 1GB card will struggle(example only).

i have a gtx 760 a i3 3220 and 6 gb of ram and i can run bf4 maxed
