In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 750 Ti Gigabyte Low Profile OC 2GB Edition are very slightly better than the AMD Radeon HD 6870 IceQ X Edition.

The GTX 750 Ti has a 132 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD 6870, but the HD 6870 has 16 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 750 Ti. As a result, the HD 6870 exhibits a 9.1 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GTX 750 Ti. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GTX 750 Ti has a 132 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD 6870, but the HD 6870 has 16 more Render Output Units than the GTX 750 Ti. As a result, the HD 6870 exhibits a 12.3 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GTX 750 Ti. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GTX 750 Ti was released over three years more recently than the HD 6870, and so the GTX 750 Ti is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the HD 6870 when running the latest games.

The GTX 750 Ti has 1024 MB more video memory than the HD 6870, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, the overall memory performance is about the same.

The HD 6870 has 48 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 750 Ti, which means that the memory performance of the HD 6870 is noticeably better than the GTX 750 Ti.

The GeForce GTX 750 Ti Gigabyte Low Profile OC 2GB Edition has 640 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 6870 IceQ X Edition has 1120. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 750 Ti is 959 and the actual shader performance of the HD 6870 is 504. The GTX 750 Ti having 455 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the HD 6870 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GTX 750 Ti transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the HD 6870. This means that the GTX 750 Ti is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the HD 6870.

The GeForce GTX 750 Ti Gigabyte Low Profile OC 2GB Edition requires 60 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Radeon HD 6870 IceQ X Edition. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GTX 750 Ti and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the HD 6870. The HD 6870 has been recommended a PSU with 100 Watts more than the GTX 750 Ti. The difference is significant enough that the HD 6870 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GTX 750 Ti.

Performance
Benchmarks Indicate no Performance Boost over the Reference GeForce GTX 750 Ti.
Radeon HD 6870 IceQ X Edition is a special edition of the high-end Radeon HD 6870. See its page for more information about it.
Compared to the Radeon HD 6870, this Special Edition has exactly the same specifications and the only new feature is an improved cooling system which doesn't affect performance directly.
Therefore, the performance is EXACTLY like the standard Radeon HD 6870 and enough to run today's demanding games at maximum settings while Very Demanding games like Metro 2033 or Max Payne 3, will probably require reduced settings to run smoothly.
