In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 750 Ti Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition are noticeably better than the AMD Radeon HD 6850 Sapphire 1GB Edition.

The GTX 750 Ti has a 257 MHz higher core clock speed but 8 fewer Texture Mapping Units than the HD 6850. The lower TMU count doesn't matter, though, as altogether the GTX 750 Ti manages to provide 4.1 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 750 Ti has a 257 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD 6850, but the HD 6850 has 16 more Render Output Units than the GTX 750 Ti. As a result, the HD 6850 exhibits a 8.3 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 6850, 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 6850 when running the latest games.

The GTX 750 Ti has 1024 MB more video memory than the HD 6850, 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 6850 has 41.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 750 Ti, which means that the memory performance of the HD 6850 is noticeably better than the GTX 750 Ti.

The GeForce GTX 750 Ti Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition has 640 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 6850 Sapphire 1GB Edition has 960. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 750 Ti is 960 and the actual shader performance of the HD 6850 is 372. The GTX 750 Ti having 588 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the HD 6850 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GTX 750 Ti transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the HD 6850. This means that the GTX 750 Ti is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the HD 6850.

The GeForce GTX 750 Ti Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition requires 75 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Radeon HD 6850 Sapphire 1GB 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 6850. The HD 6850 has been recommended a PSU with 100 Watts more than the GTX 750 Ti. The difference is significant enough that the HD 6850 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GTX 750 Ti.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GTX 750 Ti Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition is a Special Edition of NVIDIA's Fast-Middle-Class GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB, created by Gigabyte.

Overclock: Central Unit
The Central Unit is now of 1032MHz, instead of 1020MHz, while the Boost Clock achieves 1111MHz, instead of 1085MHz.

Overclock: Memory Clock

Frame Buffer
The Frame Buffer was Halved to 1GB. This will become a serious problem if attempting to use GeForce GTX 750 Ti for 1080p Gaming and in games that require large amounts of Video Memory for Texturing Purposes.
Still, the Performance Decrease by Halving the Frame Buffer is Practically unnoticeable in most gaming scenarios, since the GPU itself is the main bottleneck.

Cooling Solution
Custom-designed 100mm Cooler.

Expect no Performance Boost over the Reference GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB.
Radeon HD 6850 Sapphire 1GB Edition is a special edition of the Radeon HD 6850. See the page of the standard edition for more information about it.
There are no new features that affect Radeon HD 6850 Sapphire 1GB Edition's gaming performance directly and so its performance is exactly like the one the standard Radeon HD 6850 delivers.
