In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 770 PNY Enthusiast 4GB OC Edition are massively better than the AMD Radeon R7 260X.

The Radeon R7 260X has a 41 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 770, but the GTX 770 has 72 more Texture Mapping Units than the Radeon R7 260X. As a result, the GTX 770 exhibits a 74 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the Radeon R7 260X. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The Radeon R7 260X has a 41 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 770, but the GTX 770 has 16 more Render Output Units than the Radeon R7 260X. As a result, the GTX 770 exhibits a 16.3 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the Radeon R7 260X. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The Radeon R7 260X was released less than a year after the GTX 770, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The GTX 770 has 2048 MB more video memory than the Radeon R7 260X, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GTX 770 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 770 has 120.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Radeon R7 260X, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 770 is massively better than the Radeon R7 260X.

The GeForce GTX 770 PNY Enthusiast 4GB OC Edition has 1536 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon R7 260X has 896. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 770 is 1706 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon R7 260X is 838. The GTX 770 having 868 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 770 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Radeon R7 260X.

The GeForce GTX 770 PNY Enthusiast 4GB OC Edition requires 230 Watts to run and the Radeon R7 260X requires 115 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the GTX 770 and a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the Radeon R7 260X. The GTX 770 requires 115 Watts more than the Radeon R7 260X to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 770 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the Radeon R7 260X.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce GTX 770 PNY Enthusiast 4GB OC Edition is a special edition of GeForce GTX 770.
This edition comes with a custom dual fan cooling solution which by itself should allow a slight performance boost, as GeForce GTX 770 benefits from the GPU Boost 2.0 technology.
Also, it has been overclocked out of the box from 1046MHz to 1059MHz while its boost clock is now of 1111MHz and its frame buffer was doubled to 4GB, which will prove useless. The memory clock was left untouched.
Benchmarks indicate a 4% performance boost when compared to the reference card.
Radeon R7 260X is a Fast-Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the Second Revision of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture.

Radeon R7 260X Equips a GPU Codenamed Bonaire XTX which is a Second Gen GCN GPU and is an upgraded version of the Bonaire XT GPU previously used on Radeon 7790.
Bonaire XT has 14 Compute Units activated and thus offers 896 Shader Processing Units, 56 TMUs and 16 ROPs.

The Central Unit is clocked at 1100MHz.

Memory: Speed
The GPU is equipped with fast GDDR5 and Accesses the Frame Buffer through a 128-bit Memory Interface. The Memory Clock Operates at 1625Hz.

Memory: Frame Buffer
The GPU can fill up a Memory Pool of up to 2GB. This would be useful were the Graphics Card suited for 1080p Gaming, which is not the case.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 115W, it requires at least a 500W PSU with one available 6-pin connector.

Radeon R7 260X is the Fastest of all Radeon R7 260X Variants and Delivers Performance almost up to 10% over the Older Radeon HD 7790.

System Suggestions
Radeon R7 260X is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1600x900. We recommend a Middle-Class Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
