In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 680 are massively better than the AMD FireStream 9370.

The GeForce GTX 680 was released over a year more recently than the FireStream 9370, and so the GeForce GTX 680 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the FireStream 9370.

The FireStream 9370 has 2048 MB more video memory than the GeForce GTX 680, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the GeForce GTX 680 has superior memory performance.

The GeForce GTX 680 has 38.7 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the FireStream 9370, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce GTX 680 is noticeably better than the FireStream 9370.

The FireStream 9370 has 1600 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 680 has 1536. However, the actual shader performance of the FireStream 9370 is 858 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce GTX 680 is 1625. The GeForce GTX 680 having 767 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce GTX 680 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the FireStream 9370.

The FireStream 9370 requires 225 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 680 requires 195 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 550 Watts for the GeForce GTX 680, but we do not have a recommended PSU wattage for the FireStream 9370. The FireStream 9370 requires 30 Watts more than the GeForce GTX 680 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the FireStream 9370 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GeForce GTX 680.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewThe FireStream 9370 offers maximum GPU performance with 4GB of DDR5 memory in a 2-slot configuration. The FireStream 9350 offers maximum performance / slot with 2GB DDR5 memory in a 1-slot configuration. Both boards are passively cooled and include a single Display Port output. (For workstation installations that require active cooling of the GPU, AMD’s ATI FirePro™ professional graphics boards are software compatible and offer comparable features.)GeForce GTX 680 is a high-end Graphics Card based on the 28nm, Kepler architecture.
The Kepler architecture allows more SPUs but the Fermi SPUs (used on the 400 & 500 Series) are clocked twice as fast as the Kepler architecture. Therefore, don't let the large amount of Pipelines fool you, as the 1536 Pipelines are equivalent to 768 Pipelines, of the Fermi architecture.
GeForce GTX 680 features a 1006Mhz core-clock that can automatically set itself to 1058Mhz using a technology similar to the one used on Intel GPUs. Another huge surprise is the TDP that went from 244 Watts, to just 195 Watts, as two SPUs of the Kepler architecture consume 10% less power. However, the amount was doubled and so the power save is not as high as it could have been.
GeForce GTX 680 was the fastest single GPU of the world until Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition was released.
All games will run on the maximum settings smoothly.
