In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel HD i7 3770S are marginally better than the Nvidia GeForce 7900 GT.

The HD i7 3770S has a 200 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce 7900 GT, but the GeForce 7900 GT has 20 more Texture Mapping Units than the HD i7 3770S. As a result, the GeForce 7900 GT exhibits a 8.2 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the HD i7 3770S. Neither of these GPUs support DirectX 10 or higher, so Texture Rate holds more weight than when comparing more modern GPUs.

The HD i7 3770S has a 200 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce 7900 GT, but the GeForce 7900 GT has 12 more Render Output Units than the HD i7 3770S. As a result, the GeForce 7900 GT exhibits a 4.6 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the HD i7 3770S. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The HD i7 3770S was released over three years more recently than the GeForce 7900 GT, and so the HD i7 3770S is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GeForce 7900 GT when running the latest games.

The GeForce 7900 GT has 256 MB video memory, but the HD i7 3770S does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The HD i7 3770S has 16 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 7900 GT has 24. However, the actual shader performance of the HD i7 3770S is 74 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 7900 GT is 11. The HD i7 3770S having 63 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the GeForce 7900 GT performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The HD i7 3770S transistor size technology is 68 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce 7900 GT. This means that the HD i7 3770S is expected to run massively cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce 7900 GT. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the HD i7 3770S should consume less power than the GeForce 7900 GT.

The HD i7 3770S requires 77 Watts to run and the GeForce 7900 GT requires 49 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the HD i7 3770S and a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GeForce 7900 GT. The HD i7 3770S requires 28 Watts more than the GeForce 7900 GT to run. The difference is not significant enough for the HD i7 3770S to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GeForce 7900 GT.
