In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 5670 Asus 1GB Edition are noticeably better than the AMD Radeon HD 6670 v2 MSI 2GB Edition.

The HD 6670 has a 25 MHz higher core clock speed and 4 more Texture Mapping Units than the HD 5670. This results in the HD 6670 providing 3.7 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 HD 6670 has a 25 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD 5670 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the HD 6670 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 HD 6670 was released over a year more recently than the HD 5670, and so the HD 6670 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the HD 5670.

The HD 6670 has 1024 MB more video memory than the HD 5670, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the HD 5670 has superior memory performance.

The HD 5670 has 42.7 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the HD 6670, which means that the memory performance of the HD 5670 is noticeably better than the HD 6670.

The Radeon HD 5670 Asus 1GB Edition has 400 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 6670 v2 MSI 2GB Edition has 480. However, the actual shader performance of the HD 5670 is 155 and the actual shader performance of the HD 6670 is 192. The HD 6670 having 37 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the HD 5670 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The Radeon HD 5670 Asus 1GB Edition requires 64 Watts to run and the Radeon HD 6670 v2 MSI 2GB Edition requires 66 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the HD 5670 and a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the HD 6670. The HD 6670 requires 2 Watts more than the HD 5670 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 HD 5670.

Overview
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.

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