First of all, let’s see how faster the new GeForce GTX 760 is in comparison with the old GeForce GTX 660 Ti at their default clock rates:
The newer card enjoys the largest advantage in Metro 2033: The Last Refuge and at the AA settings in the other games. It might have been expected since it is in such resource-consuming modes that the broader memory bus should have the biggest effect on performance. The GeForce GTX 760 is an average 10-15% faster than the GeForce GTX 660 Ti at 1920x1080 and 11-18% faster at 2560x1440 across all the tests. That’s good, considering that it’s cheaper.
Now let’s check out the gap between the GeForce GTX 760 and the GeForce GTX 670.
The new card isn’t much slower than the more expensive previous-generation product. The gap is only 7-8% at both resolutions. The gap between the GeForce GTX 770 and its senior cousin is larger:
It is 16-17% at 1920x1080 and about 18% at 2560x1440 on average. The GeForce GTX 760 can be overclocked to narrow the gap and even win one of the tests:
And now let’s compare the GeForce GTX 760 and the Radeon HD 7950 at their default clock rates. We can remind you that Nvidia’s presentation slide promised a 10-15% advantage in a large number of games. But what do we have in our own tests?
Well, the GeForce GTX 760 does look good against the more expensive opponent, yet the Radeon HD 7950 is ahead in such games as Metro 2033: The Last Refuge, Hitman: Absolution, Tomb Raider (2013), GRID 2 and Company of Heroes 2. The GeForce GTX 760 wins most of the other games, being especially impressive in the new Metro: Last Light and in Sniper Elite V2.
