In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon R5 330 (OEM) are noticeably better than the AMD Radeon HD 6670 v2 MSI 2GB Edition.

The R5 330 has a 30 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD 6670, but the HD 6670 has 4 more Texture Mapping Units than the R5 330. As a result, the HD 6670 exhibits a 2.6 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the R5 330. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The R5 330 has a 30 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD 6670 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the R5 330 providing 0.2 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 R5 330 was released over three years more recently than the HD 6670, and so the R5 330 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the HD 6670 when running the latest games.

The Radeon R5 330 (OEM) and the Radeon HD 6670 v2 MSI 2GB Edition have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The R5 330 has 7.5 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the HD 6670, which means that the memory performance of the R5 330 is marginally better than the HD 6670.

The Radeon R5 330 (OEM) has 320 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 6670 v2 MSI 2GB Edition has 480. However, the actual shader performance of the R5 330 is 233 and the actual shader performance of the HD 6670 is 192. The R5 330 having 41 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the R5 330 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the HD 6670.

The R5 330 transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the HD 6670. This means that the R5 330 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the HD 6670.

The Radeon R5 330 (OEM) requires 50 Watts to run and the Radeon HD 6670 v2 MSI 2GB Edition requires 66 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the R5 330 and a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the HD 6670. The HD 6670 requires 16 Watts more than the R5 330 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 R5 330.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Radeon R5 330 (OEM) is an OEM only, Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the second revision of the Graphics Core Next Architecture.

The GCN 1.1 revision of the Graphics Core Next Architecture adds new important technologies and is largely oriented for energy efficiency. New technologies such as PowerTune and TrueAudio are the biggest additions as well as DirectX 11.2 support.

It equips a GPU codenamed Oland PRO previously used on Radeon R5 240. It offers 320 Shader Processing Units, 20 TMUs and 8 ROPs. The central unit runs at 830MHz and goes up to 855MHz, in Turbo Mode.

The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of fast 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 900MHz.

DirectX 12.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for Crossfire, Mantle, PowerTune, Eyefinity, ZeroCore, HD3D, App Acceleration and other technologies.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 50W, it requires at least a 450W PSU and relies entirely on the PCI slot for power.

Radeon R5 340 (OEM) is essentially a fast Radeon R7 240. Therefore, its performance stands somewhere between Radeon R7 240 and the faster Radeon R7 240 V2.

System Suggestions
We recommend a Modest Dual Core Processor (Intel Core i3 Quad Core/AMD FX Quad Core) and 4GB of RAM for a system with Radeon R5 330 (OEM).
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.

Without Overclocking Out of The Box, Radeon HD 6670 v2 MSI 2GB Edition is as fast as the reference Radeon HD 6670 v2.
