In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon R7 260X v2 PowerColor OC 1GB Edition are significantly better than the AMD Radeon HD 8670 (OEM).

The R7 260X has a 30 MHz higher core clock speed and 32 more Texture Mapping Units than the HD 8670. This results in the R7 260X providing 33.7 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 30 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Render Output Units than the HD 8670. This results in the R7 260X providing 8.5 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 R7 260X was released less than a year after the HD 8670, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The HD 8670 has 1024 MB more video memory than the R7 260X, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the R7 260X has superior memory performance.

The R7 260X has 22.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the HD 8670, which means that the memory performance of the R7 260X is slightly better than the HD 8670.

The Radeon R7 260X v2 PowerColor OC 1GB Edition has 896 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 8670 (OEM) has 384. However, the actual shader performance of the R7 260X is 784 and the actual shader performance of the HD 8670 is 343. The R7 260X having 441 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the R7 260X delivers a significantly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the HD 8670.

The Radeon R7 260X v2 PowerColor OC 1GB Edition requires 105 Watts to run and the Radeon HD 8670 (OEM) requires 75 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the R7 260X and a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the HD 8670. The R7 260X requires 30 Watts more than the HD 8670 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the R7 260X to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the HD 8670.

Performance
Benchmarks Indicate a 1% Performance Boost over the Reference Radeon R7 260X v2.
Overview
Radeon HD 8670 (OEM) is an OEM Only, Fast-Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the First Revision of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture.

Architecture
The GCN 1.1 revision of the Graphics Core Next Architecture adds new important technologies and is largely oriented for energy efficiency. New technologies such as PowerTune and TrueAudio are the biggest additions as well as DirectX 11.2 support.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed Oland XT which has 6 Compute Units activated and thus offers 384 Shader Processing Units, 24 TMUs and 8 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 1000MHz and goes up to 1050MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 1150MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 60W, it requires at least a 400W PSU and relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power, meaning no extra connectors are required.

Performance
Radeon HD 8670 (OEM) Competes with GeForce GTX 750 but the latter is much faster and slightly more efficient.
It proves to be as fast as Radeon HD 7750.

System Suggestions
Radeon HD 8670 (OEM) is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1600x900. We recommend a Decent Processor (Intel Core i3 Dual Core/AMD FX Quad Core) and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
