In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 5870 1024MB are marginally better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 750 Palit StormX OC 1GB Edition.

The GTX 750 has a 235 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD 5870, but the HD 5870 has 48 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 750. As a result, the HD 5870 exhibits a 33.3 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GTX 750. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GTX 750 has a 235 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD 5870, but the HD 5870 has 16 more Render Output Units than the GTX 750. As a result, the HD 5870 exhibits a 9.8 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GTX 750. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GTX 750 was released over three years more recently than the HD 5870, and so the GTX 750 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the HD 5870 when running the latest games.

The GeForce GTX 750 Palit StormX OC 1GB Edition and the Radeon HD 5870 1024MB have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The HD 5870 has 72 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 750, which means that the memory performance of the HD 5870 is much better than the GTX 750.

The GeForce GTX 750 Palit StormX OC 1GB Edition has 512 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 5870 1024MB has 1600. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 750 is 804 and the actual shader performance of the HD 5870 is 680. The GTX 750 having 124 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the HD 5870 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GTX 750 transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the HD 5870. This means that the GTX 750 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the HD 5870. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the GTX 750 should consume less power than the HD 5870.

The GeForce GTX 750 Palit StormX OC 1GB Edition requires 55 Watts to run and the Radeon HD 5870 1024MB requires 188 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GTX 750 and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the HD 5870. The HD 5870 requires 133 Watts more than the GTX 750 to run. The difference is significant enough that the HD 5870 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GTX 750.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce GTX 750 Palit StormX OC 1GB Edition is a special edition of the fast-middle-class GeForce GTX 750.
This edition comes with a custom cooling cooling solution which by itself will allow a slight performance boost, as GeForce GTX 750 benefits from the GPU Boost 2.0 technology.
Furthermore, it comes overclocked out of the box in the central unit that was raised from 1020MHz to 1085MHz, while the Turbo Boost is now of 1163MHz, instead of 1085MHz. The operating memory clock was increased to 1275MHz.
Further overclocking can be achieved easily, as the GPU has great OC potential.
Benchmarks indicate its performance is around 6% better than the reference NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 and thus this card is slightly faster than Radeon R7 260X.
Radeon HD 5870 1024MB is a High-End GPU part of the Evergreen HD 5000 family. HD 5870 wears the Cypress XT, which allows for 1600 Shader Processing Units, 80 TMUs and 32 ROPs. The Texture units increase from the Cypress Pro HD 5850 chip improves HD 5870 Filtering capabilities, while still mantaining the 256-bit Memory interface on GDDR5. Most modern demanding games will run on Ultra settings on Full HD, whereas really demanding games such as Crysis 3 and Far Cry 3 will require lowered Aliasing settings in order to achieve fluent FPS on 1080p. Power draw is rather overwhelming, and gamers looking to get this GPU will need a decent 500W PSU with two PCIe connectors.
