In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 8870 (OEM) are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 750 EVGA Superclocked 1GB Edition.

The GTX 750 has a 215 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD 8870, but the HD 8870 has 48 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 750. As a result, the HD 8870 exhibits a 41.1 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GTX 750. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GTX 750 has a 215 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD 8870, but the HD 8870 has 8 more Render Output Units than the GTX 750. As a result, the HD 8870 exhibits a 4.6 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GTX 750. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GTX 750 was released over a year more recently than the HD 8870, and so the GTX 750 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the HD 8870.

The HD 8870 has 1024 MB more video memory than the GTX 750, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the HD 8870 also has superior memory performance overall.

The HD 8870 has 73.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 750, which means that the memory performance of the HD 8870 is much better than the GTX 750.

The GeForce GTX 750 EVGA Superclocked 1GB Edition has 512 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 8870 (OEM) has 1280. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 750 is 894 and the actual shader performance of the HD 8870 is 1088. The HD 8870 having 194 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the HD 8870 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 750.

The GeForce GTX 750 EVGA Superclocked 1GB Edition requires 55 Watts to run and the Radeon HD 8870 (OEM) requires 175 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GTX 750 and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the HD 8870. The HD 8870 requires 120 Watts more than the GTX 750 to run. The difference is significant enough that the HD 8870 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GTX 750.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce GTX 750 EVGA Superclocked 1GB Edition is a special edition of the fast-middle-class GeForce GTX 750.
This edition comes with a custom cooling cooling solution which by itself will allow a slight performance boost, as GeForce GTX 750 benefits from the GPU Boost 2.0 technology.
Furthermore, it comes overclocked out of the box in the central unit that was raised from 1020MHz to 1215MHz, while the Turbo Boost is now of 1294MHz, instead of 1085MHz. The operating memory clock was left untouched.
Further overclocking can be achieved easily, as the GPU has great OC potential.
Benchmarks indicate its performance is around 6% better than the reference card.
Radeon HD 8870 (OEM) is an OEM only, Performance 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 Pitcairn XT which has 20 Compute Units activated and thus offers 1280 Shader Processing Units, 80 TMUs and 32 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 adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 1200MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 175W, it requires at least a 500W PSU with two available 6-pin connectors.

Radeon HD 8870 (OEM) is a Direct Rebrand of Radeon HD 7870 and performs exactly like it.

System Suggestions
Radeon HD 8870 (OEM) is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080. We recommend a Strong Processor (Intel Core i5 Quad Core/AMD FX Six Core) and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
