In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU II OC Edition are massively better than the AMD Radeon HD 4850x2.

The GTX 670 has a 355 MHz higher core clock speed and 72 more Texture Mapping Units than the Radeon HD 4850x2. This results in the GTX 670 providing 84.8 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GTX 670 has a 355 MHz higher core clock speed and 16 more Render Output Units than the Radeon HD 4850x2. This results in the GTX 670 providing 21.4 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GTX 670 was released over three years more recently than the Radeon HD 4850x2, and so the GTX 670 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the Radeon HD 4850x2 when running the latest games.

The GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU II OC Edition and the Radeon HD 4850x2 have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GTX 670 has 128.7 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Radeon HD 4850x2, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 670 is massively better than the Radeon HD 4850x2.

The GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU II OC Edition has 1344 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 4850x2 has 1600. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 670 is 1422 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 4850x2 is 700. The GTX 670 having 722 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 670 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Radeon HD 4850x2.

The GTX 670 transistor size technology is 27 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Radeon HD 4850x2. This means that the GTX 670 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Radeon HD 4850x2.

The Radeon HD 4850x2 requires 250 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GTX 670. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the Radeon HD 4850x2, but we do not have a recommended PSU wattage for the GTX 670.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce GTX 670 DirectCU II OC Edition is a Special Edition of the powerful GeForce GTX 670. See the standard version for more information about it.
The new features include an increase in the core-clock that went from 915MHz to 980MHz while the Turbo Boost is now of 1058MHz. A 20% more effective cooler is also included.
The performance boost is significant and around 5% when compared to the standard GTX 670.
Most demanding games will run at the highest settings.
The Radeon R700 is the engineering codename for a graphics processing unit series released by AMD Graphics Product Group, sold under the ATI brand. The foundation chip, codenamed RV770, was announced and demonstrated on June 16, 2008 as part of the FireStream 9250 and Cinema 2.0 initiative launch media event, with official release of the HD4800 series on June 25, 2008. Other variants include enthusiast-oriented RV790, mainstream product RV730, RV740 and entry-level RV710.
