I am planning to buy a new card but I am confused between Radeon HD 6670 1GB DDR5 and Radeon R7 240 1GB DDR5. Please enlighten me with the comparison when they are both 1GB DDR5 As I already know that HD 6670 DDr5 outperforms R7 240 DDR3.And in game debate they is no performance difference between their 1GB DDR5 VERSIONS.
Please Help me And thanks in advance!!

R7 for new architecture. The 6xxx series have older design than R series and 7xxx series. That said i would STRONGLY suggest getting an r7 250/250x its price/performance is much better.

There is no big difference between those two, except R7 consume less power, is little quiter, R7 240 supports mantle, newer architecture, etc
If there is a big difference in price, just get the cheapest one. If however both have same price, better get R7 240

They are actually sharing same price tag so it would be better if you get R7 240 1GB DDR5

In this thread I already recommended you to get R7 250 1GB DDR5 for better price/performance value

Get the 240 because of new architecture it will perform better in games.However i would ask you to get the 260X because its the minimum if you want to play latest games like Watch Dogs on high settings.

For that budget R7 240 will be best but has very poor price/performance ratio like other cards in that price range

But if you could put more money I would highly recommend you to get atleast R7 250 1GB DDR5 for better price/performance value

No problem

It will run BF4 , COD: Ghosts, Assassins Creed 4, Tomb Raider , NFS, Prototype 2, Skyrim , Far Cry, Thief, Crysis 3 (settings around 720p + medium settings to get 30+fps for Crysis 3), and pretty much every game but have to lower your resolution to like 1366×768 + Medium+high settings to give you around 30+ average FPS (assuming you have i3/Fx 4300 or better equivalent + 4GB RAM)

R7 240 maintains 33avg FPS at 1680×1050+low settings. So at 1366×768+Medium settings the results will be same.

Though getting R7 250 is what I will recommend due its much better price/performance value than r7 240 since by paying only 1000 INR more over r7 240 you'r getting almost double performance with r7 250 over r7 240
