In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon R9 270X Sapphire Toxic 2GB OC Edition are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 930 2GB.

The GT 930 has no core clock speed set, so any comparison between Texture and Pixel Fill Rates is not currently possible.

The GT 930 was released over three years more recently than the R9 270X, and so the GT 930 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the R9 270X when running the latest games.

The GeForce GT 930 2GB and the Radeon R9 270X Sapphire Toxic 2GB OC Edition have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The R9 270X has 176 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GT 930, which means that the memory performance of the R9 270X is massively better than the GT 930.

The GeForce GT 930 2GB has 384 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon R9 270X Sapphire Toxic 2GB OC Edition has 1280. However, the actual shader performance of the GT 930 is 0 and the actual shader performance of the R9 270X is 1251. The R9 270X having 1251 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the R9 270X delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GT 930.

The GeForce GT 930 2GB requires 35 Watts to run and the Radeon R9 270X Sapphire Toxic 2GB OC Edition requires 180 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 930 and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the R9 270X. The R9 270X requires 145 Watts more than the GT 930 to run. The difference is significant enough that the R9 270X may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GT 930.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GT 930 2GB is an upcoming middle-class Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Maxwell architecture.

Architecture
The first variant of the Maxwell Architecture succeeds the Kepler Architecture. Despite being also manufactured with a 28nm technology, it has an extremely large L2 Cache which allows NVIDIA to produce Graphics Cards with relatively small memory data transfer rates, without causing too much impact on the overall performance. Furthermore, the Shaders have been redesigned and are both more powerful and energy efficient.

GPU
It equips a GPU codenamed ???? which has 3 SM activated and thus offers 384 Shader Processing Units, 16 TMUs and 8 ROPs, on a 64-bit memory interface of fast GDDR5. The central unit runs at XXXXMHz and goes up to XXXXMHz, in Turbo Mode, while the memory clock operates at 1250MHz.

Features
DirectX 12.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for GameStream, G-SYNC, GPU Boost 2.0, GeForce Experience, PhysX and other technologies.

Cooling Solution
Coming Soon!

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 35W, it requires at least a 300W PSU and relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power.

Radeon R9 270X Sapphire Toxic 2GB OC Edition is a special edition of the high-end Radeon R9 270X.
This edition comes with a custom cooling system called "Tri-X", which reduces the card's temperature under load, significantly and comes overclocked out of the box in the central unit that was increased from 1000MHz to 1100MHz, while the Boost clock is now of 1150MHz. Also, the operating memory clock is now of 1500MHz.
Benchmarks indicate a 5% performance boost over the standard edition and so this card will surpass a Radeon HD 7950.
