In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 760M are significantly better than the AMD Radeon HD 8850M.

The GeForce GTX 760M has a 3 MHz higher core clock speed and 24 more Texture Mapping Units than the Radeon HD 8850M. This results in the GeForce GTX 760M providing 15.2 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 GeForce GTX 760M has a 3 MHz higher core clock speed than the Radeon HD 8850M, but both GPUs exhibit the same Pixel Fill Rate. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GeForce GTX 760M was released less than a year after the Radeon HD 8850M, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The Radeon HD 8850M and the GeForce GTX 760M have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GeForce GTX 760M has 32.1 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Radeon HD 8850M, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce GTX 760M is noticeably better than the Radeon HD 8850M.

The Radeon HD 8850M has 640 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 760M has 768. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 8850M is 496 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce GTX 760M is 505. The GeForce GTX 760M having 9 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce GTX 760M delivers a noticeably smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Radeon HD 8850M.

The Radeon HD 8850M requires 45 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 760M requires 55 Watts. The GeForce GTX 760M requires 10 Watts more than the Radeon HD 8850M to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GeForce GTX 760M to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the Radeon HD 8850M.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Radeon HD 8850M is a Performance Mobile Graphics Card based on the Second Revision of the GCN Architecture.

Architecture
The GCN 1.1 Release adds support for AMD's TrueAudio Technology which does calculations of audio effects "better" than the CPU and further improves the Powertune Technology.

GPU
It equips a GPU codenamed Venus PRO which has 10 Compute Units activated and thus offers 640 Shader Processing Units, 40 TMUs and 16 ROPs. The Central Unit Initially Operates at 625MHz and goes up to 775MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is exaggerated and in no way benefits the GPU. The memory clock operates at 1000MHz.

Features
DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for Crossfire, PowerTune Technology, Eyefinity, App Acceleration, HD3D, ZeroCore Power and other technologies.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 45W, it is suited for 17" or larger laptops.

Performance
Gaming benchmarks put its performance somewhat above NVIDIA's GeForce GT 750M.

System Suggestions
We recommend a Decent Processor (Intel Core i5 Mobile) and 8GB of RAM for a system with Radeon HD 8850M.
Overview
GeForce GTX 760M is a Performance Mobile Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Kepler Architecture.

Architecture
The Kepler Architecture was NVIDIA's big step to power efficiency. Each Stream Multiprocessor (SMX) now hosts 192 Shader Processing Units - against the 48 of older Fermi Architecture, and has been redesigned being now clocked at the same speed of the Central Unit. This means they are more energy efficient and will consequently lead to cooler operating temperatures. However, it also means they are weaker. It can be said that one Fermi SMX is as fast as 2 Kepler SMXs.
Additionally, and not available in all GPUs, Kepler also introduced the Boost Clock Feature. The Boost Clock is an even higher Clock Speed activated when in gaming mode and becomes the effective speed of the GPU.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed GK106-N14E-GL-A1 which has 4 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 768 Shader Processing Units, 64 TMUs and 16 ROPs. The Central Unit is initially clocked at 628MHz and goes up to 657MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is exaggerated and no way benefits the GPU. The Memory Clock Operates at 1002MHz.

Features
DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for SLI, Kepler Boost, Optimus, CUDA, OpenCL, DirectCompute, 3D Vision Surround, PhysX, Realtime Raytracing and other technologies

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 55W, it is suited for average sized laptops.

Performance
Despite being similar to GeForce GTX 650 Ti, GeForce GTX 760M is closer to the weaker GeForce GTX 650, due to being heavily underclocked.
Gaming benchmarks indicate its performance is on average with the older GeForce GTX 670M.

System Suggestions
We recommend a decent processor (Intel Core i5 Mobile) and 8GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GTX 760M.
