In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 PNY Enthusiast OC Edition are marginally better than the AMD Radeon HD 7950 VTX3D 3GB Boost X-Edition.

The GTX 760 has a 231 MHz higher core clock speed but 16 fewer Texture Mapping Units than the HD 7950. The lower TMU count doesn't matter, though, as altogether the GTX 760 manages to provide 8.1 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 760 has a 231 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD 7950 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GTX 760 providing 7.4 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 was released over a year more recently than the HD 7950, and so the GTX 760 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the HD 7950.

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 7950 has 1024 MB more video memory than the GTX 760, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the HD 7950 also has superior memory performance overall.

The HD 7950 has 41.3 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 760, which means that the memory performance of the HD 7950 is noticeably better than the GTX 760.

The GeForce GTX 760 PNY Enthusiast OC Edition has 1152 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 7950 VTX3D 3GB Boost X-Edition has 1792. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 760 is 1355 and the actual shader performance of the HD 7950 is 1417. The HD 7950 having 62 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the HD 7950 delivers a slightly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 760.

The GeForce GTX 760 PNY Enthusiast OC Edition requires 170 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Radeon HD 7950 VTX3D 3GB Boost X-Edition. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the GTX 760 and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the HD 7950. The two GPUs have been recommended a PSU with the same amount of wattage. As such, there is no need to worry about which will more significantly affect your yearly electricity bills.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce GTX 760 PNY Enthusiast OC Edition is 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 1111MHz while its boost clock is now of 1176MHz. The operating memory clock was increased to 1552MHz.
Benchmarks indicate a 8% performance boost when compared to the reference card and so this edition performs on level with GeForce GTX 670.
Radeon HD 7950 VTX3D 3GB Boost X-Edition is a special edition of the high-end Radeon HD 7950 Boost Edition.
This edition comes with a custom cooling solution and overclocking out of the box in the core-clock that was increase by 30MHz to 880MHz. Therefore, the Turbo Boost is now of 930MHz.
Expect a 1.5% performance boost when compared to the reference Radeon HD 7950 Boost Edition.
