In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 6670 v2 MSI 2GB Edition 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 10.7 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the HD 6670, which means that the memory performance of the GT 430 is slightly better than the HD 6670.

The Radeon HD 6670 v2 MSI 2GB Edition has 480 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GT 430 MSI Low Profile Dual Fan OC 1GB Edition has 96. However, the actual shader performance of the HD 6670 is 192 and the actual shader performance of the GT 430 is 151. The HD 6670 having 41 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the GT 430 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The Radeon HD 6670 v2 MSI 2GB Edition requires 66 Watts to run and the GeForce GT 430 MSI Low Profile Dual Fan OC 1GB Edition requires 49 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the HD 6670 and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 430. 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
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.
Overview
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.
