In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon RX 480X 4GB are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 770.

The RX 480X has a 104 MHz higher core clock speed and 128 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce GTX 770. This results in the RX 480X providing 160.5 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 RX 480X has a 104 MHz higher core clock speed and 96 more Render Output Units than the GeForce GTX 770. This results in the RX 480X providing 113.7 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 RX 480X was released over three years more recently than the GeForce GTX 770, and so the RX 480X is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GeForce GTX 770 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 RX 480X has 2048 MB more video memory than the GeForce GTX 770, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the GeForce GTX 770 has superior memory performance.

The GeForce GTX 770 has 224.3 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the RX 480X, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce GTX 770 is massively better than the RX 480X.

The Radeon RX 480X 4GB has 4096 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 770 has 1536. However, the actual shader performance of the RX 480X is 5325 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce GTX 770 is 1667. The RX 480X having 3658 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the RX 480X delivers a noticeably smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce GTX 770.

The RX 480X transistor size technology is 14 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce GTX 770. This means that the RX 480X is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce GTX 770.

The Radeon RX 480X 4GB requires 175 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 770 requires 230 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the RX 480X and a PSU with at least 550 Watts for the GeForce GTX 770. The GeForce GTX 770 requires 55 Watts more than the RX 480X to run. The difference is significant enough that the GeForce GTX 770 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the RX 480X.
