Synthetics

As always we’ll also take a quick look at synthetic performance, though as GTX 760 is just another GK104 card, there shouldn't be any surprises here. These tests are mostly for comparing cards from within a manufacturer, as opposed to directly comparing AMD and NVIDIA cards. We’ll start with 3DMark Vantage’s Pixel Fill test.

The 3DMark Pixel Fill test confirms what we’ve seen in or earlier results, with the full 32 ROP/256-bit configuration of the GTX 760 giving the card a notable advantage in this ROP and memory bandwidth bound scenario. It also validates why the GTX 670 and GTX 760 are so close in these scenarios.

Moving on, we have our 3DMark Vantage texture fillrate test, which does for texels and texture mapping units what the previous test does for ROPs.

The texel test on the other hand correctly points out the worst case scenario. In purely shader and texture bound scenarios, even with its higher clockspeeds the GTX 760 still can’t make up for the lack of an SMX relative to the GTX 660 Ti and GTX 670. Thankfully as we’ve seen in our game benchmarks performance is being dictated more often by the ROP improvement than the loss of the SMX.

Finally we’ll take a quick look at tessellation performance with TessMark.

Tessmark is surprisingly consistent, with the GTX 670, GTX 660 Ti, and GTX 760 all in a virtual tie. GTX 760 lacks the Polymorph Engine that comes with the 7th SMX, but in this test the lack of tessellation performance from that loss is getting completely offset by the higher clockspeeds of the GTX 760.

    Looks pretty solid for the price. Reply

    I feel like an idiot buying a 660Ti two months ago for $300. At least I got the 3GB version that'll be "somewhat" future-proof for BF4 as the maps are expected to tax 2GB cards. Reply

    Don't look back. You can only make your decision based on the information you had and your needs at the time. If you could look just 2 minutes ahead, you would be a billionaire now and wouldn't be participating in this conversation. Reply

    this is essentially a cheaper 670.. coming it at or below the price of the 660TI. I don't see your purchase as being one of those you think $*!@! over. Hah. Your card is a bit slower but not noticeably so and the added ram may benefit you down the road. Reply

    A cheaper, and slower 670. So not really a 670 at all. Reply

    I'd agree.. although pricing here is 275-300.. Don't see any at 249. The 7950 is 300.. They will have to lower that down a tiny bit to be competitive I think, take a small hit in performance (but more ram possible benefit later?) and their games bundle the trade off for consumers should be about equal.

    Not sure where 'here' is, but newegg has 3 models at $250 and another 6 at $260 (on June 26). Reply

    Calgary Canada.. We have a newegg.ca but it's not as good as your newegg I think that's to do with taxation and not having a actual warehouse here. Reply

    No, they have warehouses in Canada; if you've ever ordered a big order you'd realize this since not everything ships at once; comes from different warehouses in Vancouver, Mississauga and several others. They charge us more because they can, but only charge more on certain items so that we can't revolt. Generally the can prices are very close to the US ones, but the odd time they are significantly more. Processing and taxes are also cheaper in the US, but we do get the crappy end of the stick at times. There was a specialty motherboard, on newegg.com this was 100, and newegg.ca this was 150; can't remember the model. Reply
