Geforce GTX 670 vs Geforce GTX 760

Intro

The Geforce GTX 670 comes with a GPU core clock speed of 915 MHz, and the 2048 MB of GDDR5 memory is set to run at 1500 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also features 1344 Stream Processors, 112 Texture Address Units, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specifications to the Geforce GTX 760, which comes with a core clock frequency of 980 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1502 MHz. It also features a 256-bit bus, and uses a 28 nm design. It is made up of 1152 SPUs, 96 Texture Address Units, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Both cards have the same power consumption.

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the Geforce GTX 760 will be 0% quicker than the Geforce GTX 670 overall, because of its higher bandwidth. (explain)

Geforce GTX 760 192256 MB/sec
Geforce GTX 670 192000 MB/sec
Difference: 256 (0%)

Texel Rate

The Geforce GTX 670 should be a small bit (about 9%) faster with regards to AF than the Geforce GTX 760. (explain)

Geforce GTX 670 102480 Mtexels/sec
Geforce GTX 760 94080 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 8400 (9%)

Pixel Rate

The Geforce GTX 760 should be just a bit (about 7%) faster with regards to anti-aliasing than the Geforce GTX 670, and also capable of handling higher resolutions without slowing down too much. (explain)

Geforce GTX 760 31360 Mpixels/sec
Geforce GTX 670 29280 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 2080 (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: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of data (in units of MB per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface in one second. It's calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR type RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the graphics card can possibly record to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the number 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 output rate is also dependant on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.

What About the EVGA GTX 760 SC Edition?, is this HWcompare just with the reference models?
