I own both of these cards and just swapped them over to see what one was truly better. The Radeon R9 270X outperforms the GeForce GTX 750 Ti and has the ability for SLI. The Radeon R9 270X is the better card. That said, my GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost outperforms my GeForce GTX 750 Ti and has the ability for SLI so the GTX 650 Ti Boost is the better card there.
Nop...not at all. And they are different tier cards, shouldn't that tell you something?
ffs can this site comparissons be any more biased? screw these nvidia lovers.
he is a typical nvidia fanboy...a freak
another mind broken nvidia fanboy Nothing more to say.
GTX 970 with 3.5 GB ram, 2 year old card! AND BETTER THAN RX480... HAHAHHAHAHAHHA... AMD is tragedy :'(
R9 270X >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> GTX 750 Ti
Nobody cares, 970 is still better
I'm going with the 750 TI because it does have good reviews and it uses less power. Im building a micro itx rig for my truck. The most aggressive game I play is American Truck Simulator and Car Mechanic Simulator 2015. I heard its a loud card because the cooling fans don't go below %42. I can live with the noise and I don't think it will be anymore annoying than my refrigerated trailer.
I have the Nvidia GTX750TI card and was worried I might not be able to play games like GTA:V and Fallout4 so I borrowed my friends extra Diamond R9 270X and ran both games great for a couple months til he needed it back. The GTX 750TI is now back in and I can honestly say I see 0 difference in graphics during game play with the same settings. The AMD card is enormous and needed an extra 8pin power adapter. It was also far more intensive on my PSU than the Nvidia card. The nearly $100 difference in price even today in Jan. 2016 along with the extra power consumption for nearly no noticeable difference makes this a no brainer in my opinion. Sure the specs are better on paper but its what we the gamer's see that matters most. Just thought Id share.
down below reminds me that Fanboys will always exist no matter which platform. Only this time there GPU Fanboys. not necessarily "PC Fanboys" as PC stands for "Personal Computer" and can't be a fanboy of PC since its your own work you built. However if you go around praising Nvidia or bashing AMD or Praising Steam and bashing GOG. then yeah now you are a fanboy. While i tend to side that AMD drivers suck. Nvidia and there anti-consumeristic practices bother me,
i run it at 1920x1080, with a 750 ti on everything on high settings (lighting is on ultra), wetness, and few others check marked.
I have a GTX 750(non-Ti) 2GB and runs Fallout 4 on high 30-40 fps in 1440x900. Buy it rather than these two. :-p
you're a funny one
I'm not exactly sure what you are trying to say here . Could you plz elaborate?
People like you make me think that Nvidia Fans are just told to like it based on a piece of paper..... I want ot move over, but YOU are the reason I have second thoughts. You are not helping your cause, you do not know how to live in this world.
whooops 750Ti got #Rekt
i want one for free cuz i dont have money .. pls someone buy this for me pls pls pls
I just switched from Nvidia GTX 750ti to R9 270X in my new build, and I'm getting 60FPS on ultra in Shadows of Mordor. Something the 750ti couldn't do at 1080p. Extra for the people that like to read: The 750ti was decent enough when I upgraded it, but soon enough as I tried to play Witcher 3—I barely got 45FPS with it, even with a new CPU in this build, and 20GB ram instead of 12. I went through a couple Nvidia GPUs spanning 3 years, and through every upgrade got barely 25% more performance in every upgrade(usually 10% on average). I paid $240 for the 750ti, and only had it about 3-4 months. I paid $120 for the R9 270X for an over 50% performance increase, with 256bit memory instead of 128. The only good Nvidia does is in Physx games, but if they can't handle anything else, it doesn't matter. I moved to Nvidia after the HD Radeon 7770, and I'm back again, kicking myself in the arse for the wasted money. I could have just gotten this GPU earlier, and went crossfire in my new build, which I'll be doing in a week or so likely, and it'll stomp the 750ti into the ground for the same cost. I weighed my options back then, and I wasn't sure if I'd be okay with the change, and I was, for a time, until I went ATi again and realized that Physx is phasing out in next-gen games for the most part, especially due to the consoles having AMD hardware. I'm happier going all AMD again, and going with my better judgement. I'm giving the 750ti to my friend for $50, because that's really all it's worth in terms of performance, and he'll see more benefit from it, seeing as he's still running the old 5570 I had given him. As for the people with driver issues.. I have no idea why you're having issues. I go to AMD's website, install the proper drivers and never have a problem, and never did in the past either.
I have an R9 270X, and I was thinking about buying this card when I was deciding. The reason I bought the R9 270X is because it's better. No dur. Yes, linux AMD drivers do suck it my experiences, and there's not really any way you can do much gaming on Linux because of it. Buuuuuuuuuuuuuuut in Windows I can play most games on ultra @ 1080p, Witcher 3: Wild hunt can play perfectly on Medium settings, not sure about high or ultra.
nobody cares.
Woah man... relax. They kind of suck (for Linux I guess), but no need to rage
