NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 OC Gaming Performance Unveiled – 15% Faster Than GeForce GTX 660 Ti

HARDWARE Posted 2 days ago by Hassan Mujtaba

The first performance results of NVIDIA’s upcoming GeForce GTX 760 graphics card have been unveiled by PCEVA.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 OC Gaming Performance Unveiled

The GeForce GTX 760 graphics card would feature a GK104-225-A2 Kepler core architecture that would boast 1152 cores, 96 TMUs, 32 ROPs along with a 2 GB GDDR5 memory interface running along a 256-bit wide memory interface. Manufacturer’s are free to release 4 GB models as they wish at an extra price. The GPU runs at a base clock of 980 MHz while boosts upto 1033 MHz which are faster speeds than as seen on the GeForce GTX 670. The memory on some of the overclocked variants is clocked at 7 GHz while reference still operate at the reference 6 GHz effective clock speeds, the GPU pumps out a bandwidth of 192 GB/s at 6 GHz and overclocked models at 224.4 GB/s at 7 GHz effective clock speeds.

The stock cooling solution used on the card is of the same iteration that is seen on GeForce GTX 680/670/660 reference models. The GPU can be equipped on any one of the GTX 680 or GTX 670 PCBs hence we would be looking at alot more custom edition cards. It makes use of a large aluminum fin heatsink array sitting on top the GPU block that is cooled off by a blower type fan. Display outputs include Dual-DVI, HDMI and a display port.The card is expected to hit retail in about a week or so for a price range of $249-$299 although the official MSRP remains unconfirmed.

While the reference clocks have been detailed above, the card that was tested is not the reference model and is clocked at 1072 MHz core, 1111 MHz boost and 1753 MHz for memory (7 GHz effective). The card was put to test against the reference GeForce GTX 660 Ti in which it turned out to be on average 15% better in gaming performance and 12% better in synthetic benchmarks such as 3DMark and 3DMark11, Performance break down can be seen below:

Performance wise, the card would be faster than the reference Radeon HD 7950 at a similar cost range but the real challenge would between overclocked models since they are priced along a similar path as the overclocked Radeon graphic cards. Also to note is that this would be the last GeForce 700 series card we would see in some time since the low end GTX 750 Ti/ GTX 750 etc would launch much later around the end of Q3 2013 or Q4 2013.


GTX 760 will be launched next week ( end of June ). I predict it will cost $299 since it is 15% faster than current GTX 660 Ti which sells for $299 right now...

This will drive down the price of 660 Ti to $250 range ... perfect!!! 8) :D

I'm surprised AMD has brought nothing to the table.... not, "nothing interesting" but literally, nothing.

Best Graphics Cards For The Money: June 2013

By Don Woligroski

JUNE 21, 2013

Nvidia is also getting more aggressive with the pricing on some of its existing products, particularly the GeForce GTX 670, which is down $20 to $350. The GeForce GTX 680 dropped $30 to $420, but with GeForce GTX 770 selling for less, informed gamers won't be touching that one. On a side note, GeForce GTX 690 and Titan are both tough to find, with single models going in and out of stock on Newegg.

As far as AMD's products go, we're seeing $10 drops on the Radeon HD 7970, 7950 Boost, 7870 2 GB, 7850 1 GB, and 7790. Unfortunately, none of those adjustments take those models close enough to competing GeForce models. In addition, we're surprised to see the average price of low-end Radeon HD 6450, 6570, and 6670 DDR3 cards increase about $10.


AMD needs to do a lot better than simply knocking $10 bucks off their existing lineup...why bother??!! :fist:

I find it hard to believe it was an official action, I suspect it's currency fluctuations being reflected in overall pricing and nothing more.

as mentioned earlier I'm surprised AMD is staying mum on the matter, I hope this isn't a repeat of Nvidia's year long Fermi delay or AMD's year long X1xxx delays that forced value adjustment and left the product lineup flooded for years after they finally arrived.

I still remember rebranded x700's and x300's on the market 4 years later.

Holy Crap!! GTX 760 only costs $250 MSRP!!! :

http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/graphi ... x-760.html

Conclusion

First of all I would like to remind our readers that the MSRP of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 is set at $249. And even though the reality of the today’s market will not allow it to settle at this price soon enough, this new graphics accelerator seems to be a very appealing purchase from several different aspects. Even though its graphics processor is technically weaker, GeForce GTX 760 outperforms GeForce GTX 660 Ti due to its 256-bit memory, higher GPU clock speed and GPU Boost 2.0 technology. As a result, there is a 14% advantage that GeForce GTX 760 on average demonstrates over the GTX 660 Ti. Moreover, today we have also observed that the newcomer fell only a little bit (around 8%) behind a graphics card from a completely different category but from the previous generation – GeForce GTX 670, which can be easily eliminated by simply overclocking the new GeForce GTX 760.
However, our today’s hero cannot catch up with the GTX 770 product even in the overclocked mode. Moreover, the recommended price difference between the two suggests that it could be quite logical to have something like a GeForce GTX 760 Ti come to fill in this gap. Moreover, GeForce GTX 760 competes quite successfully against a more expensive Radeon HD 7950, but again this conclusion is based on the recommended pricing. We are going to find out pretty soon what it will be like once this graphics card starts selling in stores. As for the weaknesses of the reference GeForce GTX 760, there is only one thing that needs to be pointed out at this time: not very efficient and noisy cooling system. Therefore, if you made up your mind about getting yourself one of these new graphics cards, we would highly recommend to check out proprietary designs with alternative coolers and increased clock speeds.


The GPU frequency of the overclocked card would peak up to 1241 MHz whereas the peak GPU temperature was 76°C.


Awesome!! This will be my next video card... can overclock to GTX 670 levels for just $250!!!

Card is already listed on newegg:

Ther is at least one notebook with the new mobile version of the radeon8xxx series that looks pretty good. I would think q4 holiday season amd would be ready to laucnh the desktop version of the 8xxx cards but I have not seen much on it. Going to be a nuts holiday season this year for console gaming though so they might be holding off so they don't get dwarfed in that buying hype lol

edit *** I see ihintings of a rebrand in the comments of the article though so that could be disappointing if it is at all true.

Rebranding is not new and although unfortunate in some ways, it does fulfill its purpose. At least that of the manufacturer..

7870 is still a very good midrange card , they are hovering around the $220 mark right now.

If you don't mind "open box" , this Asus HD 7870 dual fan card is a pretty sweet deal:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 814121649R

ASUS HD7870-DC2-2GD5-V2 Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

OPEN BOX

$183.99


Cheapest GTX 660 ( non-Ti ) is about $10 more ( but not "Open Box" ) :

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6814500270

ZOTAC ZT-60901-10M GeForce GTX 660 2GB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

$194.99


Going up the next level of performance/price we have GTX 760 ( faster and cheaper than GTX 660 Ti !! ) at $250 on the shelves now...awesome...

ATi has NOTHING to compete with the GTX 760 at the moment, the HD 7950 Boost edition is still overpriced at $300 :

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6814202026

SAPPHIRE 100352-3L Radeon HD 7950 3GB 384-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

Core Clock
850MHz

Boost Clock
925MHz

$269.99


( I don't count the $20 MIR, you still have to pay $270 up front for a card that is on par with the cheaper GTX 760! ). That is the cheapest 7950 on newegg right now, all the rest cost $300 or more... way too much...

Most 7950's will overclock to the 1100 to 1200 Mhz range, so have to keep that in mind...but X-bit labs got their GTX 760 overclocked to 1241 Mhz which is an awesome result.

Daamit needs to knock down the 7950 price down to $240 to $250 range to be competitive against the new 760 card!!

Daamit competes very successfully on the low and midrange ( up to and including the 7870 ), but the 7950 and 7970 are way overpriced now that nVidia has launched these 7xx series cards...

Rumour has it that Daamit will launch their "new" HD 8xxx series in Q3 of this year ( looks to be simply rebadged 7xxx series at higher clock speeds for the most part ):

AMD did not publish any updates regarding its graphics cards plans. The company continues to offer current-generation offerings re-badged to AMD Radeon HD 8000-series to OEMs, but does not provide any details regarding its future plans. This year's mobile GPU family is also be called AMD Radeon HD 8000M-series. Keeping in mind that by the time when the next-gen GPUs from AMD arrive to the market the OEM-only Radeon HD 8000-series will have existed for several quarters, it will make a lot of sense to call the new line as the Radeon HD 9000 family.

Holy Crap!! GTX 760 only costs $250 MSRP!!! :
SEXY!!!

*checks price in SEK -> converts to USD*

More like 320$ right now.

Hmmm, equally priced AMD card here is HD 7870(and 7950). (and i actually dont have a clue how those cards compare in performance)

Although if i was looking at a new card, the 7850 looks WAY better priced. 760 GTX at 2300 vs 7850 at 1300. (and i still have no clue where they compare in performance, just looking at what i can find in the area i might be interested in)
This has been an objective and completely impartial message from the propaganda bureau of DIREWOLF75. Thank you for reading. Have a nice day.

HD 7850 can be had over here for just over $150:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6814202004

SAPPHIRE 100355-1GOCL Radeon HD 7850 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card OC Version

$154.99

Save: $25.00 (14%)
$139.99 after $15.00 rebate card


That is a heckuva deal... slightly stronger card than 7790 that sells for the same price... competes against GTX 650 Ti Boost card..

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6814127731

You can see how all these midrange cards compare against each other in these benchmarks:

http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/graphi ... html#sect1

Radeon 7850 still a strong contender especially for $155!! ( will easily overclock to 7870 levels of course ).

True!

Daamit is supposed to launch their rebranded HD 8xxx lineup in a few months time ( Q3 which starts soon - July to Sept. ), so I guess in the meantime they don't care about dropping price on 7950 , they would rather sell fewer of those at higher margins ( $300 for the most part ). :P

GTX 760 vs HD 7950:

http://www.legitreviews.com/article/2227/13/

Final Thoughts and Conclusion

At the end of the day, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 2GB and the AMD Radeon HD 7950 3GB video cards perform very closely together. For right around $250 either of these cards are more than capable of powering a single monitor gaming system without a problem. We were also impressed by what they could do on a 5760x1080 triple monitor setup thanks to NVIDIA Surround and AMD Eyefinity.

The AMD Radeon HD 7950 has 3GB of GDDR5 memory that runs on a 384-bit bus and we expected it to excel at higher resolutions. The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760's 2GB of memory on the 256-bit bus performed well except in Far Cry 3 and Hitman when our 8xAA setting filled the frame buffer. It was impressive to see the GeForce GTX 760 winning at times in the higher resolutions despite having less memory, a smaller pipe and less memory bandwidth.

When it comes to pricing you can find the EVGA GeForce GTX 760 2GB w/ ACX Cooler for $249.99 Shipped and the PowerColor Radeon HD 7950 3GB w/ Boost for $264.99 Shipped After Rebate. The GeForce GTX 760 2GB and the Radeon HD 7950 3GB w/ Boost are both excellent cards. The performance between the cards is very close as is the price point, power consumption, noise and so on. The AMD Radeon HD 7950 comes with a nice game bundle, but are they game titles that you still need or want? The choice here is really yours and it will come down to brand preference, driver preference and the software features available to both cards. We didn't want to get caught up in that for this performance review, so we stuck to just the numbers and hope that we have helped you in your search for the right graphics card!

Legit Bottom Line: The AMD Radeon HD 7950 and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 perform at the same level and are also in the same price segment. It all comes down to brand preference and software features!


If you want those games bundled with the HD 7950 then you should pay the extra $20 for that card. If you already own those games, or don't care about the games bundle, then save $20 and go with the GTX 760. As the article states , both are excellent cards. Judging by the benchmarks , the GTX 760 is slightly faster overall in most modern games, but the difference between these 2 cards is so small you would likely never notice the difference.

imho, ALL 7950 cards should drop down to the $265 to $270 price range ( BEFORE MIR!! :fist: :x I hate rebates!!) , as that is all they are really worth these days ( game bundle included of course, and it is a nice game bundle of popular titles ).

I have no experience with MIR's. What's wrong with them?
We never think of us as being one of Them. We are always one of Us. It's Them that do the bad things.
