In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 750 Palit StormX OC 1GB Edition are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 260 v4.

The GTX 750 has a 567 MHz higher core clock speed but 32 fewer Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 260. The lower TMU count doesn't matter, though, as altogether the GTX 750 manages to provide 1.5 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 GTX 750 has a 567 MHz higher core clock speed but 12 fewer Render Output Units than the GTX 260. The lower ROP count doesn't matter, though, as altogether the GTX 750 manages to provide 2.9 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 GTX 750 was released over three years more recently than the GTX 260, and so the GTX 750 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GTX 260 when running the latest games.

The GTX 260 has 768 MB more video memory than the GTX 750, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GTX 260 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 260 has 31.3 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 750, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 260 is noticeably better than the GTX 750.

The GeForce GTX 260 v4 has 192 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 750 Palit StormX OC 1GB Edition has 512. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 260 is 229 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 750 is 804. The GTX 750 having 575 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 750 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 260.

The GTX 750 transistor size technology is 27 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 260. This means that the GTX 750 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 260.

The GeForce GTX 260 v4 requires 182 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 750 Palit StormX OC 1GB Edition requires 55 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the GTX 260 and a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GTX 750. The GTX 260 requires 127 Watts more than the GTX 750 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 260 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GTX 750.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GTX 260 v4 is an OEM only, Performance Graphics Card based on the Second Revision of the Tesla Architecture.

Architecture
Tesla was NVIDIA's First Unified Shader Architecture.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed G200-103-B2 which has 8 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 192 Shader Processing Units, 64 TMUs and 28 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 518MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 1792MB frame buffer of GDDR3, through a 448-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 1008MHz.

Features
DirectX 10.0 Support (10.0 Hardware Default) and support for SLI, NVIDIA PureVideo HD Technology, Dual-stream Hardware Acceleration, PhysX, CUDA, HybridPower and other technologies.

Cooling Solution
The Cooling Solution consists of a Single-Fan.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 182W, it requires at least a 500W PSU and it requires at least two 6-pin available connectors.

Performance
Gaming benchmarks put its performance slightly below Radeon HD 4870, meaning it is considerably faster than GeForce GTS 250.
GeForce GTX 750 Palit StormX OC 1GB Edition is a special edition of the fast-middle-class GeForce GTX 750.
This edition comes with a custom cooling cooling solution which by itself will allow a slight performance boost, as GeForce GTX 750 benefits from the GPU Boost 2.0 technology.
Furthermore, it comes overclocked out of the box in the central unit that was raised from 1020MHz to 1085MHz, while the Turbo Boost is now of 1163MHz, instead of 1085MHz. The operating memory clock was increased to 1275MHz.
Further overclocking can be achieved easily, as the GPU has great OC potential.
Benchmarks indicate its performance is around 6% better than the reference NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 and thus this card is slightly faster than Radeon R7 260X.
