In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 Asus ROG MARS Edition are significantly better than the AMD Radeon R9 270X Sapphire Toxic 2GB OC Edition.

The R9 270X has a 94 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 760, but the GTX 760 has 112 more Texture Mapping Units than the R9 270X. As a result, the GTX 760 exhibits a 105.2 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 94 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 760, but the GTX 760 has 32 more Render Output Units than the R9 270X. As a result, the GTX 760 exhibits a 29.2 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the R9 270X. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GTX 760 was released less than a year after the R9 270X, 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 GTX 760 has 2048 MB more video memory than the R9 270X, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GTX 760 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 760 has 192.5 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the R9 270X, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 760 is massively better than the R9 270X.

The GeForce GTX 760 Asus ROG MARS Edition has 2304 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon R9 270X Sapphire Toxic 2GB OC Edition has 1280. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 760 is 2470 and the actual shader performance of the R9 270X is 1251. The GTX 760 having 1219 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 760 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the R9 270X.

The GeForce GTX 760 Asus ROG MARS Edition requires 250 Watts to run and the Radeon R9 270X Sapphire Toxic 2GB OC Edition requires 180 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the GTX 760 and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the R9 270X. The GTX 760 requires 70 Watts more than the R9 270X to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 760 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the R9 270X.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce GTX 760 Asus ROG MARS Edition is a dual graphics solution of two GeForce GTX 760.
This combination offers two Kepler GK104 Cores and so it comes with 2304 Shader Processing Units, 192 TMUs and 64 ROPs, on a 512-bit bus width interface of fast GDDR5. While the central unit runs at 1006MHz and goes up to 1072MHz, the memory clock operates at 1502MHz.
Its power consumption is similar to GeForce GTX 780 and its performance is slightly above the acclaimed GeForce GTX Titan.
With a release price of $630, Radeon R9 290X still ends up being a better choice.
Radeon 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.
