GeForce GTX 750 Ti vs Radeon R9 270

Intro

The GeForce GTX 750 Ti uses a 28 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 1020 MHz. The GDDR5 memory runs at a speed of 1350 MHz on this model. It features 640 SPUs as well as 40 Texture Address Units and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare all of that to the Radeon R9 270, which has GPU clock speed of 900 MHz, and 2048 MB of GDDR5 RAM set to run at 1400 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is comprised of 1280 SPUs, 80 Texture Address Units, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the largest amount of data (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface within a second. It's worked out by multiplying the bus width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied per second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core 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 per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics chip can possibly record to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel fill rate also depends on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.

This is no comparison. The R9 270 is a high end card. The 750 Ti is a Entry level card.

NVIDIA SUCKS says:

I HAD A GTX 750 Ti AND A GTX 760 BY PNY DIE ON ME AMD FTW

ItsTheGamerEdit says:

AMD fanboys...
Ahem.
GTX 750 Ti is NOT an entry level Graphics card. R9 270 is in the middle-high end level so this is pointless.

Anders says:

They both cost $150, so not a pointless comparision.

Shane says:

The r9 270/270x used to cost around the $300 before the huge bitcoin/litecoin rush, so after the inflation of AMD card prices, they dropped considerably, placing the r9 270 to about $170 range. So yes, it is a pointless comparison.

Josh says:

And yet I purchased my r9 270 for about 150. As the price point stands now, the only pointless part of the comparison is that the 750ti is pointless. For pretty close to the exact same price you can get double the performance.

El_Lobo says:

I am worried about the extra heat generated by the AMD card (150 vs. 60 Watts). What does this say about longevity and how does this affect the rest of the computer's components?

El_Lobo says:

Dell offers both cards in their XPS 8700 Desktop computer. I tend towards the nvidia card because of lower price and better (perhaps) reliability. I am willing to swallow the lower performance. I am not much of a gamer 🙂

Lysianthus says:

same price, almost double performance, cons is power consumption? r9-270 for sure... -_-

Sushiel says:

Guys wich card i should bring for best gaming

michael mckinlay says:

my psu is 400w which is very small would it be worth spending an extra £40 ($61.58) for a new psu and then buy r9 270 or should i settle with the 750ti, fyi i game on a single monitor at 1680x1050

henri kinnunen says:

dont cheap out on the psu!! so 750 ti ...

skileto says:

Hi. this is the comparison im looking for. what im confusedabout is the r9 270's current price| and will if fit in a mATX mobo and case? will it be compatible with my mobo? my mobo is msi ms7721 fm2-a55m-e33.
