In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 960 2GB are significantly better than the AMD Radeon R7 360X.

The GTX 960 has a 27 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Texture Mapping Units than the Radeon R7 360X. This results in the GTX 960 providing 10.5 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 960 has a 27 MHz higher core clock speed and 16 more Render Output Units than the Radeon R7 360X. This results in the GTX 960 providing 18.5 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 Radeon R7 360X was released less than a year after the GTX 960, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The Radeon R7 360X and the GeForce GTX 960 2GB have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GTX 960 has 8.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Radeon R7 360X, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 960 is marginally better than the Radeon R7 360X.

The Radeon R7 360X has 896 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 960 2GB has 1024. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon R7 360X is 876 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 960 is 1628. The GTX 960 having 752 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 960 delivers a significantly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Radeon R7 360X.

The Radeon R7 360X requires 120 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 960 2GB requires 120 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the Radeon R7 360X and a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GTX 960. The two GPUs require the same amount of wattage to run. As such, there is no need to worry about which will more significantly affect your yearly electricity bills.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Radeon R7 360X is a Fast-Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the Second Revision of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture.

Architecture
The GCN 1.2 revision of the Graphics Core Next Architecture improves memory bandwidth performance which allows AMD to produce Graphics Cards with smaller data transfer rates without causing too much impact on the overall performance. This is done by using lossless delta color compression.
GCN 1.2 also adds improved Tesselation and video encoding/decoding performance as well as DirectX 12.0 Support.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed Tobago XT which has 16 Compute Units activated and thus offers 896 Shader Processing Units, 56 TMUs and 16 ROPs. The Central Unit is initially clocked at 1100MHz and goes up to 1150MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 1625MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 120W, it requires at least a 500W PSU with one available 6-pin connector.

Performance
Product Not Released. Performance Not Known Yet.

System Suggestions
Radeon R7 360X 2GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1600x900. We recommend a Decent Processor (Intel Core i3 Dual Core/AMD FX Quad Core) and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
Overview
GeForce GTX 960 2GB is a Performance Graphics Card based on the Second Revision of the Maxwell architecture.

Architecture
The Second variant of the Maxwell Architecture, despite being also manufactured with a 28nm technology, has an extremely large L2 Cache and features a Third Generation Delta Color Compression which allows NVIDIA to produce Graphics Cards with relatively small memory data transfer rates, without causing too much impact on the overall performance. Furthermore, the Shaders have been redesigned and are both more powerful and energy efficient.
The Second Revision of Maxwell also adds the VXGI (Voxel Global Illumination) Technology which makes scenes significantly more lifelike and believable as light interacts more realistically in the game environment and the MFAA Technology which provides the same effect as MSAA but at a much lower performance cost.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed GM206-300-A1 which has 8 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 1024 Shader Processing Units, 64 TMUs and 32 ROPs. The Central Unit is initially clocked at 1127MHz and goes up to 1158MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 1753MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 120W, it requires at least a 400W PSU with one available 6-pin connector.

Performance
At 1920x1080, the best suited resolution for GeForce GTX 960, benchmarks indicate its performance is a little over the older GeForce GTX 670.
Therefore, GeForce GTX 770 and even Radeon R9 280X are still faster, though less energy efficient.

System Suggestions
GeForce GTX 960 2GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080. We recommend a Strong Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
