In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 770 are massively better than the AMD Radeon HD 5850 1024MB.

The GeForce GTX 770 has a 321 MHz higher core clock speed and 56 more Texture Mapping Units than the HD 5850. This results in the GeForce GTX 770 providing 81.7 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 GeForce GTX 770 has a 321 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD 5850 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GeForce GTX 770 providing 10.3 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 GeForce GTX 770 was released over three years more recently than the HD 5850, and so the GeForce GTX 770 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the HD 5850 when running the latest games.

The GeForce GTX 770 has 1024 MB more video memory than the HD 5850, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GeForce GTX 770 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GeForce GTX 770 has 96.3 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the HD 5850, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce GTX 770 is massively better than the HD 5850.

The GeForce GTX 770 has 1536 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 5850 1024MB has 1440. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce GTX 770 is 1667 and the actual shader performance of the HD 5850 is 522. The GeForce GTX 770 having 1145 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce GTX 770 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the HD 5850.

The GeForce GTX 770 transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the HD 5850. This means that the GeForce GTX 770 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the HD 5850.

The GeForce GTX 770 requires 230 Watts to run and the Radeon HD 5850 1024MB requires 151 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 550 Watts for the GeForce GTX 770 and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the HD 5850. The GeForce GTX 770 requires 79 Watts more than the HD 5850 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 HD 5850.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewRadeon HD 5850 1024MB is a High-End GPU part of the Radeon HD 5000 Series released on 2009. Codenamed Cypress Pro, this Evergreen 40nm GPU features 1440 Shader Processing Units, 72 TMUs and 32 ROPs. HD 5850 1024MB features a 256-bit Memory interface of fast GDDR5 Memory type, clocked at 725MHz on the central unit and running a Memory clock of 1000MHz. Performance is around or even better than the 2013 Radeon HD 7790, and is suitable for a 1080p resolution, but some Modern Demanding games like Crysis 3 will need lowered Aliasing settings to be playable. Its power consumption is considerably higher than other GPUs comparable performance-wise.
