In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 770 Zotac AMP! Edition are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 470 Golden Sample Edition.

The GTX 770 has a 500 MHz higher core clock speed and 72 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 470. This results in the GTX 770 providing 110.8 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 770 has a 500 MHz higher core clock speed but 8 fewer Render Output Units than the GTX 470. The lower ROP count doesn't matter, though, as altogether the GTX 770 manages to provide 10.8 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 GTX 770 was released over three years more recently than the GTX 470, and so the GTX 770 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GTX 470 when running the latest games.

The GTX 770 has 768 MB more video memory than the GTX 470, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GTX 770 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 770 has 94.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 470, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 770 is massively better than the GTX 470.

The GeForce GTX 470 Golden Sample Edition has 448 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 770 Zotac AMP! Edition has 1536. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 470 is 582 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 770 is 1846. The GTX 770 having 1264 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 770 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 470.

The GTX 770 transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 470. This means that the GTX 770 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 470.

The GeForce GTX 470 Golden Sample Edition requires 215 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce GTX 770 Zotac AMP! Edition. We would recommend a PSU with at least 550 Watts for the GTX 470 and a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the GTX 770. The GTX 770 has been recommended a PSU with 50 Watts more than the GTX 470. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 770 may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GTX 470.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce GTX 470 Golden Sample Edition is a special edition of the high-end GeForce GTX 470.
This edition comes with a dual-fan custom solution and overclocked out of the box in the central unit which was increased from 607MHz to 650MHz, while the operating memory clock is now of 850MHz, instead of 837MHz.
Benchmarks indicate a 7% performance boost when compared to the reference card.
GeForce GTX 770 Zotac AMP! Edition is a special edition of GeForce GTX 770.
This edition comes with a custom dual fan cooling solution which by itself should allow a slight performance boost, as GeForce GTX 770 benefits from the GPU Boost 2.0 technology.
Also, it has been overclocked out of the box from 1046MHz to 1150MHz while its boost clock is now of 1202MHz. The memory clock was increased to 1800MHz.
Benchmarks indicate a 8% performance boost when compared to the reference card and so this edition performs slightly better than GeForce GTX 590.
