In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon R7 260X Sapphire 2GB OC Edition are very slightly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 750 Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition.

The R7 260X has a 92 MHz higher core clock speed and 24 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 750. This results in the R7 260X providing 30.5 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 R7 260X has a 92 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 750 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the R7 260X providing 1.5 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 750 was released less than a year after the R7 260X, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The R7 260X has 1024 MB more video memory than the GTX 750, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the R7 260X also has superior memory performance overall.

The R7 260X has 25.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 750, which means that the memory performance of the R7 260X is slightly better than the GTX 750.

The GeForce GTX 750 Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition has 512 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon R7 260X Sapphire 2GB OC Edition has 896. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 750 is 786 and the actual shader performance of the R7 260X is 876. The R7 260X having 90 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the R7 260X delivers a noticeably smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 750.

The Radeon R7 260X Sapphire 2GB OC Edition requires 120 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GTX 750. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GTX 750 and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the R7 260X. The R7 260X has been recommended a PSU with 100 Watts more than the GTX 750. The difference is significant enough that the R7 260X may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GTX 750.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce GTX 750 Gigabyte 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 1058MHz, while the Turbo Boost is now of 1137MHz, instead of 1085MHz. The operating memory clock was left untouched.
Further overclocking can be achieved easily, as the GPU has great OC potential.
Benchmarks indicate its performance is around 4% better than the reference NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 and thus this card is slightly faster than Radeon R7 260X.
