In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 6870 Gigabyte OC Edition are very slightly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 750 Zotac 1GB Edition.

The GTX 750 has a 118 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD 6870, but the HD 6870 has 24 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 750. As a result, the HD 6870 exhibits a 18.1 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 118 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD 6870, but the HD 6870 has 16 more Render Output Units than the GTX 750. As a result, the HD 6870 exhibits a 12.8 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 three years more recently than the HD 6870, 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 6870 when running the latest games.

The GeForce GTX 750 Zotac 1GB Edition and the Radeon HD 6870 Gigabyte OC Edition have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The HD 6870 has 54.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 750, which means that the memory performance of the HD 6870 is much better than the GTX 750.

The GeForce GTX 750 Zotac 1GB Edition has 512 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 6870 Gigabyte OC Edition has 1120. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 750 is 768 and the actual shader performance of the HD 6870 is 512. The GTX 750 having 256 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the HD 6870 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GTX 750 transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the HD 6870. This means that the GTX 750 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the HD 6870.

The GeForce GTX 750 Zotac 1GB Edition requires 55 Watts to run and the Radeon HD 6870 Gigabyte OC Edition requires 251 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 6870. The HD 6870 requires 196 Watts more than the GTX 750 to run. The difference is significant enough that the HD 6870 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to 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 6870 Gigabyte OC Edition is a special edition of the high-end Radeon HD 6870 that features a small increase in the core-clock and a new cooling system called WindForce 3X.
The GPU runs cooler but the performance boost is of only 1% according to most benchmarks.
