In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 7950 GX2 are very slightly better than the AMD Radeon HD 6670 v2 MSI 2GB Edition.

The HD 6670 has a 300 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce 7950 GX2, but the GeForce 7950 GX2 has 24 more Texture Mapping Units than the HD 6670. As a result, the GeForce 7950 GX2 exhibits a 4.8 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the HD 6670. Neither of these GPUs support DirectX 10 or higher, so Texture Rate holds more weight than when comparing more modern GPUs.

The HD 6670 has a 300 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce 7950 GX2, but the GeForce 7950 GX2 has 24 more Render Output Units than the HD 6670. As a result, the GeForce 7950 GX2 exhibits a 9.6 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the HD 6670. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The HD 6670 was released over three years more recently than the GeForce 7950 GX2, and so the HD 6670 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GeForce 7950 GX2 when running the latest games.

The HD 6670 has 1024 MB more video memory than the GeForce 7950 GX2, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, the overall memory performance is about the same.

The GeForce 7950 GX2 has 55.5 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the HD 6670, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce 7950 GX2 is much better than the HD 6670.

The Radeon HD 6670 v2 MSI 2GB Edition has 480 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 7950 GX2 has 48. However, the actual shader performance of the HD 6670 is 192 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 7950 GX2 is 24. The HD 6670 having 168 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the GeForce 7950 GX2 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The HD 6670 transistor size technology is 50 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce 7950 GX2. This means that the HD 6670 is expected to run much cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce 7950 GX2. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the HD 6670 should consume less power than the GeForce 7950 GX2.

The Radeon HD 6670 v2 MSI 2GB Edition requires 66 Watts to run and the GeForce 7950 GX2 requires 110 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the HD 6670 and a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GeForce 7950 GX2. The GeForce 7950 GX2 requires 44 Watts more than the HD 6670 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GeForce 7950 GX2 may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the HD 6670.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Radeon HD 6670 v2 MSI 2GB Edition is a special edition of AMD's fast-middle-class Radeon HD 6670 v2, created by MSI.

Overclock: Central Unit
The Central Unit runs at the same speed.

Overclock: Memory Clock
The Operating Memory Clock runs at 667MHz and the Frame Buffer was raised to 2GB. This is a gimmick and in no way benefits the GPU.

Cooling Solution
The Cooling System remains the same.

Performance
Without Overclocking Out of The Box, Radeon HD 6670 v2 MSI 2GB Edition is as fast as the reference Radeon HD 6670 v2.
The NVIDIA GeForce 7 Series graphics processing units (GPUs) represent a significant leap forward in 3D graphics design, delivering the unparalleled horsepower and revolutionary technologies you need to tackle the latest games and video applications. The GeForce 7 Series GPUs deliver blazing frame rates and outstanding image quality so you can experience full-throttle graphics performance.
