In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 750 Asus DirectCU Silent 2GB Edition are very slightly better than the AMD Radeon R7 260.

The GTX 750 has a 20 MHz higher core clock speed than the Radeon R7 260, but the Radeon R7 260 has 16 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 750. As a result, the Radeon R7 260 exhibits a 15.4 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 20 MHz higher core clock speed than the Radeon R7 260 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GTX 750 providing 0.3 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 750 was released less than a year after the Radeon R7 260, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The GeForce GTX 750 Asus DirectCU Silent 2GB Edition and the Radeon R7 260 have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The Radeon R7 260 has 16 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 750, which means that the memory performance of the Radeon R7 260 is slightly better than the GTX 750.

The GeForce GTX 750 Asus DirectCU Silent 2GB Edition has 512 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon R7 260 has 768. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 750 is 750 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon R7 260 is 653. The GTX 750 having 97 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Radeon R7 260 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GeForce GTX 750 Asus DirectCU Silent 2GB Edition requires 55 Watts to run and the Radeon R7 260 requires 95 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GTX 750 and a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the Radeon R7 260. The Radeon R7 260 requires 40 Watts more than the GTX 750 to run. The difference is significant enough that the Radeon R7 260 may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GTX 750.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce GTX 750 Asus DirectCU Silent 2GB Edition is a special edition of the fast-middle-class GeForce GTX 750.

On this edition, the frame buffer was doubled to 2GB which will not yield any performance boost, as the card is not suited for 1080p and the Cooling System was replaced by a Silent one.
Therefore, the performance is exactly like the reference GeForce GTX 750.
Radeon R7 260 is a fast-middle-class graphics card based on the Second Revision of the GCN architecture. It packs a Core codenamed Bonaire PRO.
The Bonaire PRO is a cut-down version of the Bonaire XT Core used on Radeon HD 7790. It comes with 14 Compute Units and thus offers 768 Shader Processing Units, 48 TMUs and 16 ROPs. This, on a 128-bit memory interface of fast GDDR5. Compared to the Bonaire XT Core, it has support for DirectX 11.2 and has support for AMD's TrueAudio Technology.
Benchmarks indicate its performance is around 10% slower than Radeon HD 7790 and a little over that when taking Radeon R7 260X as a reference.
The card proves to be very inefficient seeing as it has a higher rated TDP board than Radeon HD 7790 and its release price of $109 makes Radeon HD 7850 a better option.
