In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 6970 Lightning Edition are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 750 Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition.

The GTX 750 has a 118 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD 6970, but the HD 6970 has 64 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 750. As a result, the HD 6970 exhibits a 56.3 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 118 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD 6970, but the HD 6970 has 16 more Render Output Units than the GTX 750. As a result, the HD 6970 exhibits a 13.2 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 6970, 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 6970 when running the latest games.

The HD 6970 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 HD 6970 also has superior memory performance overall.

The HD 6970 has 95.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 750, which means that the memory performance of the HD 6970 is massively better than the GTX 750.

The GeForce GTX 750 Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition has 512 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 6970 Lightning Edition has 1536. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 750 is 786 and the actual shader performance of the HD 6970 is 722. The GTX 750 having 64 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the HD 6970 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GTX 750 transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the HD 6970. This means that the GTX 750 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the HD 6970.

The Radeon HD 6970 Lightning Edition requires 250 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 550 Watts for the HD 6970. The HD 6970 has been recommended a PSU with 150 Watts more than the GTX 750. The difference is significant enough that the HD 6970 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.
Radeon HD 6970 Lightning Edition is a tweaked Radeon HD 6970 and part of the Radeon HD 6000 Series released by AMD in 2010/2011.
The only difference between Radeon HD 6970 Lightning Edition and Radeon HD 6970 appears to be the core clock, which was raised from 880MHz to 940MHz.
Benchmarks indicate a 6% performance boost when compared to the standard Radeon HD 6970.
All demanding games, including very demanding one's like Metro 2033/The Witcher II will run on the highest settings.
