In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Radeon R9 370X and the GTX 950 are equal.

The GTX 950 has a 24 MHz higher core clock speed than the Radeon R9 370X, but the Radeon R9 370X has 32 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 950. As a result, the Radeon R9 370X exhibits a 30.8 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GTX 950. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GTX 950 has a 24 MHz higher core clock speed than the Radeon R9 370X and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GTX 950 providing 0.8 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 less than a year after the GTX 950, 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 Radeon R9 370X and the GeForce GTX 950 2GB have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The Radeon R9 370X has 73.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 950, which means that the memory performance of the Radeon R9 370X is much better than the GTX 950.

The Radeon R9 370X has 1280 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 950 2GB has 768. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon R9 370X is 1142 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 950 is 1232. The GTX 950 having 90 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Radeon R9 370X performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The Radeon R9 370X requires 180 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 950 2GB requires 90 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the Radeon R9 370X and a PSU with at least 350 Watts for the GTX 950. The Radeon R9 370X requires 90 Watts more than the GTX 950 to run. The difference is significant enough that the Radeon R9 370X may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GTX 950.

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.
