In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 Asus ROG MARS Edition are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 590 EVGA Classified Hydro Copper Edition.

The GTX 760 has a 376 MHz higher core clock speed and 64 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 590. This results in the GTX 760 providing 112.6 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 376 MHz higher core clock speed but 32 fewer Render Output Units than the GTX 590. The lower ROP count doesn't matter, though, as altogether the GTX 760 manages to provide 3.9 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 GTX 590, 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 GTX 590.

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 GTX 760 has 1024 MB more video memory than the GTX 590, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GTX 760 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 760 has 52.7 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 590, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 760 is much better than the GTX 590.

The GeForce GTX 590 EVGA Classified Hydro Copper Edition has 1024 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 760 Asus ROG MARS Edition has 2304. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 590 is 1290 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 760 is 2470. The GTX 760 having 1180 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 760 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 590.

The GTX 760 transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 590. This means that the GTX 760 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 590.

The GeForce GTX 590 EVGA Classified Hydro Copper Edition requires 365 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 760 Asus ROG MARS Edition requires 250 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 700 Watts for the GTX 590 and a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the GTX 760. The GTX 590 requires 115 Watts more than the GTX 760 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 590 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GTX 760.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce GTX 590 EVGA Classified Hydro Copper is a special edition of the dual-graphics solution GeForce GTX 590.
This edition comes overclocked out of the box in the central unit that went from 608MHz to 630MHz and in the operating memory clock, which is now of 864MHz. Furthermore, it features a new cooling system which keeps the card cool under load.
Benchmarks indicate a 5% performance boost over the reference card and so it proves to be faster than GeForce GTX 680.
GeForce GTX 760 Asus ROG MARS Edition is a dual graphics solution of two GeForce GTX 760.
This combination offers two Kepler GK104 Cores and so it comes with 2304 Shader Processing Units, 192 TMUs and 64 ROPs, on a 512-bit bus width interface of fast GDDR5. While the central unit runs at 1006MHz and goes up to 1072MHz, the memory clock operates at 1502MHz.
Its power consumption is similar to GeForce GTX 780 and its performance is slightly above the acclaimed GeForce GTX Titan.
With a release price of $630, Radeon R9 290X still ends up being a better choice.
