In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 6670 v2 MSI 2GB Edition are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce 9500 GT.

The HD 6670 has a 250 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce 9500 GT. This results in the HD 6670 providing 10.4 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 250 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce 9500 GT and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the HD 6670 providing 2 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 over a year more recently than the GeForce 9500 GT, 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 9500 GT.

The HD 6670 has 1536 MB more video memory than the GeForce 9500 GT, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the GeForce 9500 GT has superior memory performance.

The GeForce 9500 GT has 4.3 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the HD 6670, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce 9500 GT is marginally better than the HD 6670.

The Radeon HD 6670 v2 MSI 2GB Edition has 480 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 9500 GT has 32. However, the actual shader performance of the HD 6670 is 192 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 9500 GT is 18. The HD 6670 having 174 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 GeForce 9500 GT.

The HD 6670 transistor size technology is 15 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce 9500 GT. This means that the HD 6670 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce 9500 GT.

The Radeon HD 6670 v2 MSI 2GB Edition requires 66 Watts to run and the GeForce 9500 GT requires 50 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the HD 6670 and a PSU with at least 350 Watts for the GeForce 9500 GT. The HD 6670 requires 16 Watts more than the GeForce 9500 GT 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 GeForce 9500 GT.

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 9500 GT is a Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the First Revision of the Tesla Architecture.

Architecture
Tesla was NVIDIA's First Unified Shader Architecture.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed G96C which has 2 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 32 Shader Processing Units, 16 TMUs and 8 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 550MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 512MB frame buffer of GDDR3, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 800MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 50W, it requires at least a 350W PSU and it relies entirely on the PCI Slot for Power meaning no extra connectors are required.

Performance
Gaming benchmarks put its performance on average with GeForce 8600 GTS, meaning it is much faster than Radeon HD 3650.
