In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 750 Ti are very slightly better than the AMD Radeon HD 6870 PowerColor 1GB Edition.

The GTX 750 Ti has a 120 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD 6870, but the HD 6870 has 16 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 750 Ti. As a result, the HD 6870 exhibits a 9.6 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GTX 750 Ti. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GTX 750 Ti has a 120 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD 6870, but the HD 6870 has 16 more Render Output Units than the GTX 750 Ti. As a result, the HD 6870 exhibits a 12.5 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GTX 750 Ti. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GTX 750 Ti was released over a year more recently than the HD 6870, and so the GTX 750 Ti is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the HD 6870.

The GTX 750 Ti has 1024 MB more video memory than the HD 6870, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, the overall memory performance is about the same.

The HD 6870 has 48 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 750 Ti, which means that the memory performance of the HD 6870 is noticeably better than the GTX 750 Ti.

The Radeon HD 6870 PowerColor 1GB Edition has 1120 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 750 Ti has 640. However, the actual shader performance of the HD 6870 is 504 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 750 Ti is 937. The GTX 750 Ti having 433 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the HD 6870 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GTX 750 Ti transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the HD 6870. This means that the GTX 750 Ti is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the HD 6870.

The GeForce GTX 750 Ti requires 60 Watts to run but there is no entry for the HD 6870. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the HD 6870 and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GTX 750 Ti. The HD 6870 has been recommended a PSU with 200 Watts more than the GTX 750 Ti. The difference is significant enough that the HD 6870 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GTX 750 Ti.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewRadeon HD 6870 PowerColor 1GB Edition is a special edition of the high-end Radeon HD 6870. See its page for more information about it.
It has no new features and so it can be addressed as a renamed Radeon HD 6870. Therefore its performance is exactly like the standard's.
Overview
GeForce GTX 750 Ti is a performance Graphics Card based on the first variant of the Maxwell architecture.

Architecture
The first variant of the Maxwell Architecture succeeds the Kepler Architecture. Despite being also manufactured with a 28nm technology, it has an extremely large L2 Cache which allows NVIDIA to produce Graphics Cards with relatively small memory data transfer rates, without causing too much impact on the overall performance. Furthermore, the Shaders have been redesigned and are both more powerful and energy efficient.

GPU
It equips a GPU codenamed GM107-400-A2 which has 5 SM activated and thus offers 640 Shader Processing Units, 40 TMUs and 16 ROPs, on a 128-bit memory interface of fast GDDR5. The central unit runs at 1020MHz and goes up to 1085MHz, in Turbo Mode, while the memory clock operates at 1350MHz.

Features
DirectX 11.2 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for GameStream, G-SYNC, GPU Boost 2.0, GeForce Experience, PhysX and other technologies.

Cooling Solution
The Cooling Solution consists of a Single-Fan and is identical to the one seen on GeForce GTX 650. The Card is known to run very cool and has a maximum operating temperature of 95ÂșC.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 60W, it requires at least a 300W PSU and relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power.

Release Price
Pricing is identical to the one seen on its predecessors - $149.

Performance
Benchmarks indicate its performance is largely better than its predecessor's but Radeon HD 7850 and GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost Edition still offer better performance, due to their high memory bandwidth transfer rates.

System Suggestions
We recommend a strong processor (Intel Core i5 Quad Core/AMD FX Six Core) and 8GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GTX 750 Ti.
