In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 Ti (OEM) are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce 9800 GT 1GB SLI.

The GTX 760 Ti has a 315 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the 9800 GT. This results in the GTX 760 Ti providing 35.3 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 760 Ti has a 315 MHz higher core clock speed than the 9800 GT and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GTX 760 Ti providing 10.1 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 760 Ti was released over three years more recently than the 9800 GT, and so the GTX 760 Ti is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the 9800 GT when running the latest games.

The GeForce 9800 GT 1GB SLI and the GeForce GTX 760 Ti (OEM) have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GTX 760 Ti has 77.1 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the 9800 GT, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 760 Ti is much better than the 9800 GT.

The GeForce 9800 GT 1GB SLI has 224 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 760 Ti (OEM) has 1344. However, the actual shader performance of the 9800 GT is 336 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 760 Ti is 1317. The GTX 760 Ti having 981 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 760 Ti delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the 9800 GT.

The GTX 760 Ti transistor size technology is 37 nm (nanometers) smaller than the 9800 GT. This means that the GTX 760 Ti is expected to run much cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the 9800 GT.

The GeForce 9800 GT 1GB SLI requires 200 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 760 Ti (OEM) requires 170 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the 9800 GT and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the GTX 760 Ti. The 9800 GT requires 30 Watts more than the GTX 760 Ti to run. The difference is not significant enough for the 9800 GT to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GTX 760 Ti.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce 9800 GT 1GB SLI is a solution of two GeForce 9800 GT 1GB put together using NVIDIA's SLI Technology.

It consists of 2 GPUs Codenamed G92-270-A2 which, together, offer 224 Shader Processing Units, 112 TMUs and 32 ROPs. The central unit runs at 600MHz.

Each GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of GDDR3, through a 256-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 900MHz.

Power Consumption
Power Consumption lies between 190W and 220W.

System Suggestions
GGeForce 9800 GT 1GB SLI is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1600x900.
GeForce GTX 760 Ti (OEM) is an OEM only high-end Graphics Card based on the Kepler GK104 (325-A2 Variant) core of the Kepler Architecture.
The 325-A2 Variant of the Kepler GK104 Core offers 1344 Shader Processing Units, 112 TMUs and 32 ROPs, on a 256-bit memory interface. While the central unit runs at 915MHz and goes up to 980MHz, in Turbo Mode, the memory clock operates at 1502MHz.
It's therefore a renamed GeForce GTX 670 and will offer exactly the same performance.
