In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 750 Zotac 1GB Edition are significantly better than the AMD Radeon HD 4850 Golden Sample Edition.

The GTX 750 has a 333 MHz higher core clock speed but 8 fewer Texture Mapping Units than the HD 4850. The lower TMU count doesn't matter, though, as altogether the GTX 750 manages to provide 5.1 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 750 has a 333 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD 4850 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GTX 750 providing 5.3 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 GTX 750 was released over three years more recently than the HD 4850, and so the GTX 750 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the HD 4850 when running the latest games.

The GTX 750 has 512 MB more video memory than the HD 4850, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GTX 750 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 750 has 9.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the HD 4850, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 750 is marginally better than the HD 4850.

The GeForce GTX 750 Zotac 1GB Edition has 512 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 4850 Golden Sample Edition has 800. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 750 is 768 and the actual shader performance of the HD 4850 is 392. The GTX 750 having 376 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 750 delivers a noticeably smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the HD 4850.

The GTX 750 transistor size technology is 27 nm (nanometers) smaller than the HD 4850. This means that the GTX 750 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the HD 4850.

The GeForce GTX 750 Zotac 1GB Edition requires 55 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Radeon HD 4850 Golden Sample Edition. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GTX 750.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce GTX 750 Zotac 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 1033MHz, while the Turbo Boost is now of 1111MHz, 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 1% better than the reference NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 and thus Radeon R7 260X is still faster.
Radeon HD 4850 Golden Sample Edition is a special edition of the high-end Radeon HD 4850.
The new features include increases in the core and memory clocks that went from 625MHz to 700MHz and from 993MHz to 1100MHz, respectively. A new cooling system is also available.
The overclocking is significant and benchmarks indicate it's around 5% when compared to the reference Radeon HD 4850.
