In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 KFA2 EX OC 4GB Edition are marginally better than the AMD Radeon R9 270X Sapphire Toxic 2GB OC Edition.

The R9 270X has a 42 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 760, but the GTX 760 has 16 more Texture Mapping Units than the R9 270X. As a result, the GTX 760 exhibits a 13.6 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the R9 270X. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The R9 270X has a 42 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 760 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the R9 270X providing 1.3 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 R9 270X was released less than a year after the GTX 760, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

Both GPUs exhibit very powerful performance, so it probably isn't worth upgrading from one to the other, as both are capable of running even the most demanding games at the highest settings.

The GTX 760 has 2048 MB more video memory than the R9 270X, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GTX 760 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 760 has 0.3 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the R9 270X, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 760 is marginally better than the R9 270X.

The GeForce GTX 760 KFA2 EX OC 4GB Edition has 1152 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon R9 270X Sapphire Toxic 2GB OC Edition has 1280. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 760 is 1279 and the actual shader performance of the R9 270X is 1251. The GTX 760 having 28 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 760 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the R9 270X.

The GeForce GTX 760 KFA2 EX OC 4GB Edition requires 170 Watts to run and the Radeon R9 270X Sapphire Toxic 2GB OC Edition requires 180 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the GTX 760 and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the R9 270X. The R9 270X requires 10 Watts more than the GTX 760 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the R9 270X to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GTX 760.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GTX 760 KFA2 EX OC 4GB Edition is a special edition of NVIDIA's Performance GeForce GTX 760, created by KFA2.

Overclock: Central Unit
The Central Unit now runs at 1058MHz, instead of 980MHz and goes up to 1110MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Overclock: Memory Clock
The Operating Memory Clock and the Frame Buffer was doubled to 4GB. This is a gimmick and in no way benefits the GPU.

Cooling Solution
The Cooling System has been replaced by KFA2's Dual Fan Cooling Solution, meaning the Graphics Card runs cooler under load.

Benchmarks indicate a 4% performance over the reference GeForce GTX 760.
Radeon R9 270X Sapphire Toxic 2GB OC Edition is a special edition of the high-end Radeon R9 270X.
This edition comes with a custom cooling system called "Tri-X", which reduces the card's temperature under load, significantly and comes overclocked out of the box in the central unit that was increased from 1000MHz to 1100MHz, while the Boost clock is now of 1150MHz. Also, the operating memory clock is now of 1500MHz.
Benchmarks indicate a 5% performance boost over the standard edition and so this card will surpass a Radeon HD 7950.
