In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 780 Galaxy HOF 3GB Edition are significantly better than the AMD Radeon R9 370X.

The GTX 780 has a 6 MHz higher core clock speed and 112 more Texture Mapping Units than the Radeon R9 370X. This results in the GTX 780 providing 113.2 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 GTX 780 has a 6 MHz higher core clock speed and 16 more Render Output Units than the Radeon R9 370X. This results in the GTX 780 providing 16.3 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 Radeon R9 370X was released over a year more recently than the GTX 780, and so the Radeon R9 370X is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GTX 780.

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 780 has 1024 MB more video memory than the Radeon R9 370X, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GTX 780 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 780 has 109.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Radeon R9 370X, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 780 is massively better than the Radeon R9 370X.

The Radeon R9 370X has 1280 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 780 Galaxy HOF 3GB Edition has 2304. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon R9 370X is 1142 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 780 is 2438. The GTX 780 having 1296 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 780 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Radeon R9 370X.

The Radeon R9 370X requires 180 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 780 Galaxy HOF 3GB Edition requires 250 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the Radeon R9 370X and a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the GTX 780. The GTX 780 requires 70 Watts more than the Radeon R9 370X to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 780 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the Radeon R9 370X.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Radeon R9 370X is a Performance Graphics Card based on the First Revision of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture.

Architecture
Radeon R9 370X Features a GPU Codenamed Trinidad XT which is a First Gen GCN GPU. It is essentially a Pitcairn XT GPU like seen on Radeon HD 7870. As a result, it doesn't support for modern technologies like TrueAudio, ZeroPower or Powertune.
Trinidad XT has 20 Compute Units Unlocked and offers 1280 Shader Processing Units, 80 TMUs and 32 ROPs.

GPU
The Central Unit is Initially Clocked at 1000MHz and goes up to 1050MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory: Speed
The GPU is equipped with fast GDDR5 and Accesses the Frame Buffer through a 256-bit Memory Interface. The Memory Clock Operates at 1400MHz.

Memory: Frame Buffer
The GPU can fill up a Memory Pool of up to 2GB.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 110W, it requires at least a 500W PSU with one available 6-pin connector.

Performance
Performance is identical to Radeon R9 270X.

System Suggestions
Radeon R7 370X is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080. We recommend a Performance Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
GeForce GTX 780 Galaxy HOF 3GB Edition is a special edition of the high-end GeForce GTX 780.
This edition comes with a custom double fan cooling solution which will allow a reasonable performance boost from the start, as GeForce GTX 780 benefits from the GPU Boost 2.0 technology.
Also, it has been overclocked out of the box from 863MHz to 1006MHz while its boost clock is now of 1058MHz. The memory clock was left untouched.
Benchmarks indicate a 11% performance boost when compared to the reference card and so this edition performs slightly better than GeForce GTX Titan.
