In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon R7 250 Sapphire 1GB Edition Crossfire are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 Ti Power Edition OC 1GB.

The R7 250 has a 7 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 650 Ti, but the GTX 650 Ti has 16 more Texture Mapping Units than the R7 250. As a result, the GTX 650 Ti exhibits a 15.6 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 7 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 650 Ti and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the R7 250 providing 0.1 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 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 R7 250 has 1024 MB more video memory than the GTX 650 Ti, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the R7 250 also has superior memory performance overall.

The R7 250 has 60.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 650 Ti, which means that the memory performance of the R7 250 is much better than the GTX 650 Ti.

Both the Radeon R7 250 Sapphire 1GB Edition Crossfire and the GeForce GTX 650 Ti Power Edition OC 1GB have 768 Shader Processing Units. While the two GPUs have the same number of SPUs, the actual performance delivered by the GTX 650 Ti is 763 and by the R7 250 is 763. Knowing that the shader performance of the GTX 650 Ti is superior, it is not necessary to examine the GPUs' respective Texture and Pixel Fill Rates.

The Radeon R7 250 Sapphire 1GB Edition Crossfire requires 130 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce GTX 650 Ti Power Edition OC 1GB. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the R7 250.

Benchmarks Indicate no Performance Boost over the Reference Radeon R7 250 1GB in Crossfire.

System Suggestions
Radeon R7 250 Sapphire 1GB Edition Crossfire is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080. We Recommend a Performance Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
GeForce GTX 650 Ti Power Edition OC 1GB is a special edition of the fast-middle-class GeForce GTX 650 Ti.
This edition features a new and better cooling system called Cyclone II Thermal Design with Dust Removal technology and an increase in the central clock that went from 928MHz to 993MHz. The Memory clock was left untouched.
The overclocking is relevant and benchmarks indicate there's a 4% boost when compared to the reference GeForce GTX 650 Ti.
