In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 1.5GB (OEM) are significantly better than the AMD Radeon HD 8760 (OEM).

The HD 8760 has a 177 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 660, but the GTX 660 has 56 more Texture Mapping Units than the HD 8760. As a result, the GTX 660 exhibits a 39 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the HD 8760. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The HD 8760 has a 177 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 660, but the GTX 660 has 8 more Render Output Units than the HD 8760. As a result, the GTX 660 exhibits a 3.8 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the HD 8760. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The HD 8760 was released less than a year after the GTX 660, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The HD 8760 has 512 MB more video memory than the GTX 660, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the GTX 660 has superior memory performance.

The GTX 660 has 62.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the HD 8760, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 660 is much better than the HD 8760.

The Radeon HD 8760 (OEM) has 640 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 660 1.5GB (OEM) has 1152. However, the actual shader performance of the HD 8760 is 544 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 660 is 1023. The GTX 660 having 479 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 660 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the HD 8760.

The Radeon HD 8760 (OEM) requires 80 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 660 1.5GB (OEM) requires 130 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the HD 8760 and a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the GTX 660. The GTX 660 requires 50 Watts more than the HD 8760 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 660 may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the HD 8760.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Radeon HD 8760 (OEM) is an OEM Only, Fast-Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the First Revision of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture.

The GCN Architecture succeeds the 40nm Terascale Architecture. In addition to being produced with a 28nm Technology, the GCN Architecture adds other Technologies that allow for energy efficiency. For example, ZeroCore Power, a long idle power saving technology, allows the Graphics Cards to shut down by itself when the Monitor is turned off.
GCN also adds Improved Anisotropic Filtering, DirectX 11 Tessellation and the Partially Resident Textures (PRT) Technology, which enables future games to utilize ultra-high resolution textures with the same performance as today's small and often repetitive textures.

It equips a GPU Codenamed Cape Verde PRO which has 10 Compute Units activated and thus offers 640 Shader Processing Units, 40 TMUs and 16 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 1000MHz.

The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 256-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is exaggerated and in no way benefits the GPU. The Memory Clock Operates at 1125MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 80W, it requires at least a 450W PSU with one available 6-pin connectors.

Radeon HD 8760 (OEM) is a Direct Rebrand of Radeon HD 7770 and performs exactly like it.

System Suggestions
Radeon HD 8760 (OEM) is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1600x900. We recommend a Decent Processor (Intel Core i3 Quad Core/AMD FX Quad Core) and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
GeForce GTX 660 1.5GB (OEM) is a high-end Graphics Card based on the 28nm, Kepler architecture.

It offers the GK104-200-KD-A2 GPU which features 1152 Shader Processing Units, 96 TMUs and 24 ROPs, on a 192-bit memory interface of fast GDDR5.
While the central unit runs at 823MHz and goes up to 888MHz, in turbo mode, the memory clock operates at 1400MHz.

It is an OEM card that despite the core differences, performs similar to the retail version.
