In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 750 are very slightly better than the AMD Radeon R7 260.

The GeForce GTX 750 has a 20 MHz higher core clock speed than the Radeon R7 260, but the Radeon R7 260 has 16 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce GTX 750. As a result, the Radeon R7 260 exhibits a 15.4 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GeForce GTX 750. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GeForce GTX 750 has a 20 MHz higher core clock speed than the Radeon R7 260 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GeForce GTX 750 providing 0.3 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 GeForce GTX 750 was released less than a year after the Radeon R7 260, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The Radeon R7 260 has 1024 MB more video memory than the GeForce GTX 750, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the Radeon R7 260 also has superior memory performance overall.

The Radeon R7 260 has 16 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce GTX 750, which means that the memory performance of the Radeon R7 260 is slightly better than the GeForce GTX 750.

The Radeon R7 260 has 768 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 750 has 512. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon R7 260 is 653 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce GTX 750 is 750. The GeForce GTX 750 having 97 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Radeon R7 260 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The Radeon R7 260 requires 95 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 750 requires 55 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the Radeon R7 260 and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GeForce GTX 750. The Radeon R7 260 requires 40 Watts more than the GeForce GTX 750 to run. The difference is significant enough that the Radeon R7 260 may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GeForce GTX 750.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewRadeon R7 260 is a fast-middle-class graphics card based on the Second Revision of the GCN architecture. It packs a Core codenamed Bonaire PRO.
The Bonaire PRO is a cut-down version of the Bonaire XT Core used on Radeon HD 7790. It comes with 14 Compute Units and thus offers 768 Shader Processing Units, 48 TMUs and 16 ROPs. This, on a 128-bit memory interface of fast GDDR5. Compared to the Bonaire XT Core, it has support for DirectX 11.2 and has support for AMD's TrueAudio Technology.
Benchmarks indicate its performance is around 10% slower than Radeon HD 7790 and a little over that when taking Radeon R7 260X as a reference.
The card proves to be very inefficient seeing as it has a higher rated TDP board than Radeon HD 7790 and its release price of $109 makes Radeon HD 7850 a better option.
GeForce GTX 750 is a performance Graphics Card based on the first variant of the Maxwell 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.

It equips a GPU codenamed GM107-300-A2 which has 4 SM activated and thus offers 512 Shader Processing Units, 32 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 1250MHz.

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 55W, 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 - $119.

Benchmarks indicate its performance is over 30% better than its predecessor's and surpasses largely Radeon R7 260, while factory overclocked versions will surpass the Radeon R7 260X, especially in DirectX 11 based games.

System Suggestions
We recommend a considerably strong processor (Intel Core i3 Dual Core/AMD FX Quad Core) and 8GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GTX 750.
