In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 MSI TwinFrozr Gaming Edition are marginally better than the AMD Radeon R9 270X Sapphire Toxic 2GB OC Edition.

The R9 270X has a 80 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 760, but the GTX 760 has 16 more Texture Mapping Units than the R9 270X. As a result, the GTX 760 exhibits a 9.9 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the R9 270X. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The R9 270X has a 80 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 760 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the R9 270X providing 2.6 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 R9 270X was released less than a year after the GTX 760, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

Both GPUs exhibit very powerful performance, so it probably isn't worth upgrading from one to the other, as both are capable of running even the most demanding games at the highest settings.

The Radeon R9 270X Sapphire Toxic 2GB OC Edition and the GeForce GTX 760 MSI TwinFrozr Gaming Edition have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GTX 760 has 0.3 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the R9 270X, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 760 is marginally better than the R9 270X.

The Radeon R9 270X Sapphire Toxic 2GB OC Edition has 1280 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 760 MSI TwinFrozr Gaming Edition has 1152. However, the actual shader performance of the R9 270X is 1251 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 760 is 1205. The R9 270X having 46 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the GTX 760 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The Radeon R9 270X Sapphire Toxic 2GB OC Edition requires 180 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 760 MSI TwinFrozr Gaming Edition requires 170 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the R9 270X and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the GTX 760. The R9 270X requires 10 Watts more than the GTX 760 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the R9 270X to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GTX 760.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewRadeon R9 270X Sapphire Toxic 2GB OC Edition is a special edition of the high-end Radeon R9 270X.
This edition comes with a custom cooling system called "Tri-X", which reduces the card's temperature under load, significantly and comes overclocked out of the box in the central unit that was increased from 1000MHz to 1100MHz, while the Boost clock is now of 1150MHz. Also, the operating memory clock is now of 1500MHz.
Benchmarks indicate a 5% performance boost over the standard edition and so this card will surpass a Radeon HD 7950.
GeForce GTX 760 MSI TwinFrozr Gaming Edition a special edition of GeForce GTX 760.
This edition comes with a custom dual-fan cooling solution which by itself should allow a slight performance boost, as GeForce GTX 760 benefits from the GPU Boost 2.0 technology.
Also, it has been overclocked out of the box from 980MHz to 1020MHz while its boost clock is now of 1046MHz. The memory clock was left untouched.
Benchmarks indicate a 3% performance boost when compared to the reference card and so this edition performs slightly worse than GeForce GTX 670.
