In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 6670 v2 are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 430 MSI Low Profile Dual Fan OC 1GB Edition.

The HD 6670 has a 15 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Texture Mapping Units than the GT 430. This results in the HD 6670 providing 6.6 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 HD 6670 has a 15 MHz higher core clock speed and 4 more Render Output Units than the GT 430. This results in the HD 6670 providing 3.3 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 HD 6670 was released less than a year after the GT 430, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The HD 6670 has 1024 MB more video memory than the GT 430, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the GT 430 has superior memory performance.

The GT 430 has 6.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the HD 6670, which means that the memory performance of the GT 430 is marginally better than the HD 6670.

The GeForce GT 430 MSI Low Profile Dual Fan OC 1GB Edition has 96 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 6670 v2 has 480. However, the actual shader performance of the GT 430 is 151 and the actual shader performance of the HD 6670 is 192. The HD 6670 having 41 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the HD 6670 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GT 430.

The GeForce GT 430 MSI Low Profile Dual Fan OC 1GB Edition requires 49 Watts to run and the Radeon HD 6670 v2 requires 66 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 430 and a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the HD 6670. The HD 6670 requires 17 Watts more than the GT 430 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the HD 6670 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GT 430.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GT 430 MSI Low Profile Dual Fan OC 1GB Edition is a special edition of NVIDIA's middle-class GeForce GT 430, created by MSI.

Overclock Out of The Box
The Central Unit is now of 785MHz, instead of 700MHz while the Operating Memory Clock is now of 1000MHz.

Cooling Solution
The reference Cooling System has been replaced by MSI's Dual Fan Cooling System.

Performance
Benchmarks indicate a 6% performance boost over the reference GeForce GT 430.
Overview
Radeon HD 6670 v2 is a fast-middle-class Graphics Card based on the second revision of the Terascale Architecture.

Architecture
The Second variant of the Terascale 2 Architecture is still manufactured with a 40nm technology and despite allowing more Stream Cores, their design remains more or less the same compared to the first variant.

GPU
It equips a GPU codenamed Turks XT which has 8 Compute Units activated and thus offers 480 Shader Processing Units, 24 TMUs and 8 ROPs.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 128-bit memory interface. The memory clock operates at 800MHz. The size of the frame buffer is exaggerated and in no way benefits the GPU.

Features
DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for Crossfire, HD3D, Eyefinity, App Acceleration, PowerPlay and other technologies.

Cooling Solution
The Cooling Solution consists of a Single-Fan.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 66W, it requires at least a 400W PSU and it relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power, meaning no extra connectors are required.

Performance
Gaming benchmarks put its performance somewhat above GeForce GT 440, meaning GeForce GTS 450 is still much faster.

System Suggestions
We recommend a modest processor (Intel Core i3/AMD Phenom) and 4GB of RAM for a system with Radeon HD 6670 v2.
