In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 7870 Crossfire are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 Ti (OEM).

The HD 7870 has a 85 MHz higher core clock speed and 48 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 760 Ti. This results in the HD 7870 providing 57.5 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 HD 7870 has a 85 MHz higher core clock speed and 32 more Render Output Units than the GTX 760 Ti. This results in the HD 7870 providing 34.7 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 760 Ti was released over a year more recently than the HD 7870, and so the GTX 760 Ti is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the HD 7870.

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 HD 7870 has 2048 MB more video memory than the GTX 760 Ti, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the HD 7870 also has superior memory performance overall.

The HD 7870 has 114.9 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 760 Ti, which means that the memory performance of the HD 7870 is massively better than the GTX 760 Ti.

The GeForce GTX 760 Ti (OEM) has 1344 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 7870 Crossfire has 2560. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 760 Ti is 1317 and the actual shader performance of the HD 7870 is 2176. The HD 7870 having 859 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the HD 7870 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 760 Ti.

The GeForce GTX 760 Ti (OEM) requires 170 Watts to run and the Radeon HD 7870 Crossfire requires 350 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the GTX 760 Ti and a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the HD 7870. The HD 7870 requires 180 Watts more than the GTX 760 Ti to run. The difference is significant enough that the HD 7870 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GTX 760 Ti.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce GTX 760 Ti (OEM) is an OEM only high-end Graphics Card based on the Kepler GK104 (325-A2 Variant) core of the Kepler Architecture.
The 325-A2 Variant of the Kepler GK104 Core offers 1344 Shader Processing Units, 112 TMUs and 32 ROPs, on a 256-bit memory interface. While the central unit runs at 915MHz and goes up to 980MHz, in Turbo Mode, the memory clock operates at 1502MHz.
It's therefore a renamed GeForce GTX 670 and will offer exactly the same performance.
Radeon HD 7870 Crossfire is a solution of two Radeon HD 7870 put together using AMD'S Crossfire technology.
Check the page of Radeon HD 7870 to know more about its chip.
Crossfire relies a lot on proper driver support and may suffer from micro-stuttering in lower frame rates (below 30). Benchmarks indicate the performance is overall, is up to 44% better than a single Radeon HD 7870 performing by itself it might be worse (depending on whether or not the 3D game supports crossfire or in the graphics driver) than a single Radeon HD 7870. Expect this combination to draw up to 350 Watt though the average power consumption should be slightly lower.
Even the most demanding games will run at the highest settings.
