In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 MSI TwinFrozr Gaming OC 4GB Edition are massively better than the AMD Radeon R7 250 v2 MSI OC 2GB + Radeon R7 7870K Dual.

The GTX 760 has a 35 MHz higher core clock speed and 40 more Texture Mapping Units than the R7 250. This results in the GTX 760 providing 45.4 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GTX 760 has a 35 MHz higher core clock speed and 16 more Render Output Units than the R7 250. This results in the GTX 760 providing 17.9 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. 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 760, 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 760.

The GTX 760 has 1024 MB more video memory than the R7 250, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GTX 760 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 760 has 134.7 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the R7 250, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 760 is massively better than the R7 250.

The Radeon R7 250 v2 MSI OC 2GB + Radeon R7 7870K Dual has 896 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 760 MSI TwinFrozr Gaming OC 4GB Edition has 1152. However, the actual shader performance of the R7 250 is 838 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 760 is 1325. The GTX 760 having 487 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 760 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the R7 250.

The Radeon R7 250 v2 MSI OC 2GB + Radeon R7 7870K Dual requires 150 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 760 MSI TwinFrozr Gaming OC 4GB Edition requires 170 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the R7 250 and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the GTX 760. The GTX 760 requires 20 Watts more than the R7 250 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GTX 760 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the R7 250.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewRadeon R7 250 v2 MSI OC 2GB + Radeon R7 7870K Dual is a Solution of one Dedicated Radeon R7 250 v2 MSI OC 2GB Edition and one Integrated Radeon R7 7870K Dual put together using AMD's Asymmetric Crossfire Technology.

Architecture & Other Relevant Data
For more information about the Architecture and Other Relevant Data, please refer to the Pages of [Radeon R7 250 v2 MSI OC 2GB Edition](http://www.game-debate.com/hardware/index.php?gid=2420&graphics=Radeon%20R7%20250%20v2%20MSI%20OC%202GB%20Edition) and [Radeon R7 7870K](http://www.game-debate.com/hardware/index.php?gid=3000&graphics=Radeon%20R7%207870K).

Performance
Just like Crossfire, Asymmetric Crossfire can lead to Micro Stuttering.
Furthermore, Performance relies heavily on Driver Support, whereas it can lead to an enormous Performance Boost over each Graphics Card Operating Alone or to a Performance Decrease in which it is best to disable the Asymmetric Crossfire. Overall, Expect Performance Similar to Radeon R7 250X.

System Suggestions
Radeon R7 250 v2 MSI OC 2GB + Radeon R7 7870K Dual is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1600x900. We Recommend 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
GeForce GTX 760 MSI TwinFrozr Gaming OC 4GB Edition a special edition of GeForce GTX 760.
This edition comes with a custom dual-fan cooling solution which by itself should allow a slight performance boost, as GeForce GTX 760 benefits from the GPU Boost 2.0 technology.
Also, it has been overclocked out of the box from 980MHz to 1085MHz while its boost clock is now of 1150MHz. The memory clock was left untouched. Furthermore, the frame buffer was doubled to 4GB though this will not boost its performance and can be addressed as a gimmick - marketing to lure consumers into paying more for the same product.
Benchmarks indicate a 7% performance boost when compared to the reference card and so this edition performs on level with GeForce GTX 670.
