In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 770 Leadtek Hurricane III Edition are massively better than the AMD Radeon R7 260X v3 Gigabyte OC Rev. 3.0 2GB Edition.

The R7 260X has a 129 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 770, but the GTX 770 has 72 more Texture Mapping Units than the R7 260X. As a result, the GTX 770 exhibits a 69.1 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the R7 260X. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The R7 260X has a 129 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 770, but the GTX 770 has 16 more Render Output Units than the R7 260X. As a result, the GTX 770 exhibits a 14.9 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the R7 260X. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The R7 260X was released over a year more recently than the GTX 770, and so the R7 260X is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GTX 770.

The GTX 770 has 2048 MB more video memory than the R7 260X, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GTX 770 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 770 has 144.3 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the R7 260X, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 770 is massively better than the R7 260X.

The Radeon R7 260X v3 Gigabyte OC Rev. 3.0 2GB Edition has 896 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 770 Leadtek Hurricane III Edition has 1536. However, the actual shader performance of the R7 260X is 905 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 770 is 1706. The GTX 770 having 801 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 770 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the R7 260X.

The Radeon R7 260X v3 Gigabyte OC Rev. 3.0 2GB Edition requires 85 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 770 Leadtek Hurricane III Edition requires 230 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the R7 260X and a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the GTX 770. The GTX 770 requires 145 Watts more than the R7 260X to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 770 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the R7 260X.

Mini ReviewOverview
Radeon R7 260X v3 Gigabyte OC Rev. 3.0 2GB Edition is a Special Edition of AMD's Fast-Middle-Class Radeon R7 260X v3, created by Gigabyte.

Overclock: Central Unit
The Central Unit has been increased from 1000MHz to 1188MHz.

Overclock: Memory Clock
None.

Frame Buffer

Cooling Solution
GIGABYTE custom-designed 10 cm cooler: As opposed to the stereotype, GIGABYTE is able to maximize fan size to 10cm with the latest cooling design. With a 10cm fan, the card is virtually silent that its noise level runs much lower.

Performance
Benchmarks Indicate a 7% Performance Boost over the Reference Radeon R7 260X v3.
GeForce GTX 770 Leadtek Hurricane III Edition is a special edition of the high-end GeForce GTX 770.
This edition comes with a custom triple fan cooling solution which by itself should allow a slight performance boost, as GeForce GTX 770 benefits from the GPU Boost 2.0 technology.
Also, it has been overclocked out of the box from 1046MHz to 1059MHz while its boost clock is now of 1111MHz. The memory clock was left untouched.
Benchmarks indicate a 3% performance boost when compared to the reference card.
Note: This card has 2GB and 4GB versions. Both offer the same performance.
