In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTS 150 are noticeably better than the AMD Radeon HD 6670 v2 MSI 2GB Edition.

The HD 6670 has a 62 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce GTS 150, but the GeForce GTS 150 has 40 more Texture Mapping Units than the HD 6670. As a result, the GeForce GTS 150 exhibits a 28 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the HD 6670. 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 62 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce GTS 150, but the GeForce GTS 150 has 8 more Render Output Units than the HD 6670. As a result, the GeForce GTS 150 exhibits a 5.4 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 a year more recently than the GeForce GTS 150, and so the HD 6670 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GeForce GTS 150.

The HD 6670 has 1024 MB more video memory than the GeForce GTS 150, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the GeForce GTS 150 has superior memory performance.

The GeForce GTS 150 has 42.7 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the HD 6670, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce GTS 150 is noticeably better than the HD 6670.

The Radeon HD 6670 v2 MSI 2GB Edition has 480 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTS 150 has 128. However, the actual shader performance of the HD 6670 is 192 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce GTS 150 is 236. The GeForce GTS 150 having 44 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce GTS 150 delivers a significantly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the HD 6670.

The HD 6670 transistor size technology is 15 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce GTS 150. This means that the HD 6670 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce GTS 150.

The Radeon HD 6670 v2 MSI 2GB Edition requires 66 Watts to run and the GeForce GTS 150 requires 141 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the HD 6670 and a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the GeForce GTS 150. The GeForce GTS 150 requires 75 Watts more than the HD 6670 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GeForce GTS 150 may have an 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.
GeForce GTS 150 is a high-end GPU based on the 2009, 55nm, first-generation unified architecture.
It's based on the G92 Core and offers 128 Shader Processing Units, 64 TMUs and 16 ROPs, on a 256-bit memory interface of standard DDR3. The central unit runs at 738MHz and the memory clock operates at up to 1000MHz.
It's therefore a renamed GeForce 9800 GTX+ with a lower memory clock - which will not affect its performance overall.
Today's modern demanding games are playable at medium (some high settings) but DirectX 11 games aren't supported and extremely demanding games will require reduced further reduced settings to be played optimally.
