In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 750 Ti EVGA 2GB Edition are very slightly better than the AMD Radeon HD 6870 PowerColor 1GB Edition.

The GTX 750 Ti has a 120 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD 6870, but the HD 6870 has 16 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 750 Ti. As a result, the HD 6870 exhibits a 9.6 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GTX 750 Ti. 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 Ti has a 120 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD 6870, but the HD 6870 has 16 more Render Output Units than the GTX 750 Ti. As a result, the HD 6870 exhibits a 12.5 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GTX 750 Ti. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GTX 750 Ti was released over a year more recently than the HD 6870, and so the GTX 750 Ti is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the HD 6870.

The GTX 750 Ti has 1024 MB more video memory than the HD 6870, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, the overall memory performance is about the same.

The HD 6870 has 48 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 750 Ti, which means that the memory performance of the HD 6870 is noticeably better than the GTX 750 Ti.

The GeForce GTX 750 Ti EVGA 2GB Edition has 640 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 6870 PowerColor 1GB Edition has 1120. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 750 Ti is 937 and the actual shader performance of the HD 6870 is 504. The GTX 750 Ti having 433 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the HD 6870 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GTX 750 Ti transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the HD 6870. This means that the GTX 750 Ti is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the HD 6870.

The GeForce GTX 750 Ti EVGA 2GB Edition requires 60 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Radeon HD 6870 PowerColor 1GB Edition. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GTX 750 Ti and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the HD 6870. The HD 6870 has been recommended a PSU with 200 Watts more than the GTX 750 Ti. The difference is significant enough that the HD 6870 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GTX 750 Ti.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce GTX 750 Ti EVGA 2GB Edition is a special edition of NVIDIA's high-end GeForce GeForce GTX 750 Ti created by EVGA. It doesn't have any new features. Read below to know more.

Overclock Out of The Box
The Clock Frequencies of both Central Unit and Operating Memory Clock Remain the Same.

Cooling Solution
The Cooling System remains the same.

Power Consumption
The Rated Board TDP remains the same: 60 Watts. A 300W PSU recommended is required.

Release Price
GeForce GTX 970 EVGA 4GB Edition was released for $149.99. That's the same price of the reference Graphics Card.

Performance
Without a New Cooling Solution or overclocking out of the box, GeForce GTX 750 Ti EVGA 2GB Edition is as fast as the reference GeForce GTX 750 Ti.
Radeon HD 6870 PowerColor 1GB Edition is a special edition of the high-end Radeon HD 6870. See its page for more information about it.
It has no new features and so it can be addressed as a renamed Radeon HD 6870. Therefore its performance is exactly like the standard's.
