In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 780 Ti Zotac AMP! Edition are noticeably better than the AMD Radeon R9 270X Crossfire.

The GTX 780 Ti has a 6 MHz higher core clock speed and 80 more Texture Mapping Units than the R9 270X. This results in the GTX 780 Ti providing 81.4 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 780 Ti has a 6 MHz higher core clock speed than the R9 270X, but the R9 270X has 16 more Render Output Units than the GTX 780 Ti. As a result, the R9 270X exhibits a 15.7 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GTX 780 Ti. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GTX 780 Ti was released less than a year after the R9 270X, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance 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 R9 270X has 1024 MB more video memory than the GTX 780 Ti, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the R9 270X also has superior memory performance overall.

The R9 270X has 12.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 780 Ti, which means that the memory performance of the R9 270X is slightly better than the GTX 780 Ti.

The Radeon R9 270X Crossfire has 2560 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 780 Ti Zotac AMP! Edition has 2880. However, the actual shader performance of the R9 270X is 2285 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 780 Ti is 3087. The GTX 780 Ti having 802 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 780 Ti delivers a significantly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the R9 270X.

The Radeon R9 270X Crossfire requires 360 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 780 Ti Zotac AMP! Edition requires 250 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 750 Watts for the R9 270X and a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the GTX 780 Ti. The R9 270X requires 110 Watts more than the GTX 780 Ti to run. The difference is significant enough that the R9 270X may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GTX 780 Ti.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewRadeon R9 270X Crossfire is a solution of two Radeon R9 270X put together using AMD'S Crossfire technology.
Check the page of Radeon R9 270X to know more about its chip.
Crossfire relies a lot on proper driver support and may suffer from micro-stuttering in lower frame rates (below 30). Benchmarks indicate the performance is overall, is up to x% better than a single Radeon R9 270X performing by itself but at times (depending whether or not the 3D game supports crossfire or in the graphics driver) it performed worse than a single Radeon R9 270X. Expect this combination to draw up to 360 Watt though the average power consumption should be slightly lower.
Even the most demanding games will run at the highest settings.
GeForce GTX 780 Ti Zotac AMP! Edition is a special edition of the high-end GeForce GTX 780 Ti.
This edition comes with a custom triple fan cooling solution which by itself should allow a slight performance boost, as GeForce GTX 780 benefits from the GPU Boost 2.0 technology.
Also, it has been overclocked out of the box from 875MHz to 1006MHz while its boost clock is now of 1072MHz. The operating memory clock was raised to 1800MHz.
Benchmarks indicate a 8% performance boost when compared to the reference card and so this card surpasses the mighty GeForce GTX 690.
