Geforce GTX 760 vs Radeon R9 270


The Geforce GTX 760 features a GPU core clock speed of 980 MHz, and the 2048 MB of GDDR5 RAM runs at 1502 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is comprised of 1152 SPUs, 96 TAUs, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specs to the Radeon R9 270, which has a core clock speed of 900 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1400 MHz. It also uses a 256-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 28 nm design. It features 1280 SPUs, 80 TAUs, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (measured in MB per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface in a second. It's calculated by multiplying the bus width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR memory, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the video card can possibly write to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel fill 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.

Wow... price-to-performance on the Nvidia card is absolutely pathetic.

Guess you're paying for the brand.

rodrigues says:

nvidia no more. It Dosn't worth the difference of prices.

john says:

270 card performs the same and there is no real noticeable differnce on a 24inch 1080p 120 ghz screen-

price i go with r9 and its dx12 compatible

Ruru says:

The cards costs the same right now and Nvidia is the better choice.

Douglas says:

The same fot u in brazil the cust is like $50,00 difference r9 270 for gtx 760
