In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 Ti Gainward 1GB Edition are significantly better than the AMD Radeon R7 250 1GB.

The R7 250 has a 72 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 650 Ti, but the GTX 650 Ti has 40 more Texture Mapping Units than the R7 250. As a result, the GTX 650 Ti exhibits a 35.4 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the R7 250. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The R7 250 has a 72 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 650 Ti, but the GTX 650 Ti has 8 more Render Output Units than the R7 250. As a result, the GTX 650 Ti exhibits a 6.8 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the R7 250. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The R7 250 was released over a year more recently than the GTX 650 Ti, and so the R7 250 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GTX 650 Ti.

The Radeon R7 250 1GB and the GeForce GTX 650 Ti Gainward 1GB Edition have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GTX 650 Ti has 12.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the R7 250, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 650 Ti is slightly better than the R7 250.

The Radeon R7 250 1GB has 384 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 650 Ti Gainward 1GB Edition has 768. However, the actual shader performance of the R7 250 is 343 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 650 Ti is 713. The GTX 650 Ti having 370 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 650 Ti delivers a noticeably smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the R7 250.

The Radeon R7 250 1GB requires 65 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce GTX 650 Ti Gainward 1GB Edition. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the R7 250.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Radeon R7 250 is a Fast-Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the First Revision of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture.

Architecture
The GCN 1.1 revision of the Graphics Core Next Architecture adds new important technologies and is largely oriented for energy efficiency. New technologies such as PowerTune and TrueAudio are the biggest additions as well as DirectX 11.2 support.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed Oland XT which has 6 Compute Units activated and thus offers 384 Shader Processing Units, 24 TMUs and 8 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 1000MHz and goes up to 1050MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 1150MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 65W, it requires at least a 400W PSU and relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power, meaning no extra connectors are required.

Performance
Radeon R7 250 Competes with GeForce GTX 750 but the latter is much faster and slightly more efficient.
It proves to be as fast as Radeon HD 7750.

System Suggestions
Radeon R7 250 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1600x900. We recommend a Decent Processor (Intel Core i3 Dual Core/AMD FX Quad Core) and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
GeForce GTX 650 Ti Gainward 1GB Edition is a special edition of the fast-middle-class.
This edition has no new features and so it performs exactly like the reference GeForce GTX 650 Ti.
