In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 770 PNY Enthusiast 4GB OC Edition are significantly better than the AMD FirePro D300.

The GTX 770 has a 284 MHz higher core clock speed and 48 more Texture Mapping Units than the FirePro D300. This results in the GTX 770 providing 73.6 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 GTX 770 has a 284 MHz higher core clock speed than the FirePro D300 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GTX 770 providing 9.1 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 FirePro D300 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 FirePro D300, 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 64.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the FirePro D300, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 770 is much better than the FirePro D300.

The FirePro D300 has 1280 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 770 PNY Enthusiast 4GB OC Edition has 1536. However, the actual shader performance of the FirePro D300 is 645 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 770 is 1706. The GTX 770 having 1061 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 FirePro D300.

The FirePro D300 requires 150 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 770 PNY Enthusiast 4GB OC Edition requires 230 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the FirePro D300 and a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the GTX 770. The GTX 770 requires 80 Watts more than the FirePro D300 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 FirePro D300.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewFirePro D300 is a workstation Graphics Card based on the 28nm GCN architecture.
It's based on the Pitcairn XT Core (same used on 7870) and therefore offers 1280 Shader Processing Units, 80 TMUs and 32 ROPs on a 256-bit interface of fast GDDR5. The central unit is clocked 775MHz while the memory clock operates at 1250MHZ.
It is thus considerably lower clocked and its gaming performance is even lower, as Radeon HD 7870 benefits from certified gaming drivers which unlock the GCN's architecture potential while FirePro D300 is made for professional applications. Therefore, expect its performance to be similar to Radeon HD 7850.
GeForce 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.
