In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 3GB (OEM) are significantly better than the AMD Radeon R7 260X v2 PowerColor OC 1GB Edition.

The R7 260X has a 207 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 760, but the GTX 760 has 40 more Texture Mapping Units than the R7 260X. As a result, the GTX 760 exhibits a 21.3 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the R7 260X. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The R7 260X has a 207 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 760, but the GTX 760 has 8 more Render Output Units than the R7 260X. As a result, the GTX 760 exhibits a 3.3 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the R7 260X. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The R7 260X was released less than a year after the GTX 760, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The GTX 760 has 2048 MB more video memory than the R7 260X, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GTX 760 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 760 has 38.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the R7 260X, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 760 is noticeably better than the R7 260X.

The GeForce GTX 760 3GB (OEM) has 1152 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon R7 260X v2 PowerColor OC 1GB Edition has 896. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 760 is 1023 and the actual shader performance of the R7 260X is 784. The GTX 760 having 239 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 760 delivers a significantly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the R7 260X.

The GeForce GTX 760 3GB (OEM) requires 130 Watts to run and the Radeon R7 260X v2 PowerColor OC 1GB Edition requires 105 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the GTX 760 and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the R7 260X. The GTX 760 requires 25 Watts more than the R7 260X to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GTX 760 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the R7 260X.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce GTX 760 3GB (OEM) is a high-end Graphics Card based on the 28nm, Kepler architecture.

It offers the GK104-200-KD-A2 GPU which features 1152 Shader Processing Units, 96 TMUs and 24 ROPs, on a 192-bit memory interface of fast GDDR5.
While the central unit runs at 823MHz and goes up to 888MHz, in turbo mode, the memory clock operates at 1400MHz.
When compared to the 1.5GB version, the frame buffer was doubled to 3GB though this will not boost its performance and can be addressed as a gimmick - marketing to lure consumers into paying more for the same product.

It is therefore a renamed GeForce GTX 660 3GB (OEM) and offers exactly the same performance.
Radeon R7 260X v2 PowerColor OC 1GB Edition is a Special Edition of AMD's Fast-Middle-Class Radeon R7 260X v2, created by PowerColor.
