In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 550 Ti are marginally better than the AMD Radeon HD 7750 VTX3D 1GB DDR3 Edition.

The GTX 550 Ti has a 100 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the HD 7750. This results in the GTX 550 Ti providing 3.2 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 550 Ti has a 100 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Render Output Units than the HD 7750. This results in the GTX 550 Ti providing 8.8 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 HD 7750 was released over a year more recently than the GTX 550 Ti, and so the HD 7750 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GTX 550 Ti.

The Radeon HD 7750 VTX3D 1GB DDR3 Edition and the GeForce GTX 550 Ti have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GTX 550 Ti has 72.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the HD 7750, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 550 Ti is much better than the HD 7750.

The Radeon HD 7750 VTX3D 1GB DDR3 Edition has 512 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 550 Ti has 192. However, the actual shader performance of the HD 7750 is 348 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 550 Ti is 346. The HD 7750 having 2 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the GTX 550 Ti performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The HD 7750 transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 550 Ti. This means that the HD 7750 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 550 Ti. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the HD 7750 should consume less power than the GTX 550 Ti.

The GeForce GTX 550 Ti requires 116 Watts to run but there is no entry for the HD 7750. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the HD 7750 and a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GTX 550 Ti. The two GPUs have been recommended a PSU with the same amount of wattage. As such, there is no need to worry about which will more significantly affect your yearly electricity bills.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewRadeon HD 7750 VTX3D 1GB DDR3 Edition is a special edition of the fast-middle-class Radeon HD 7750 1GB DDR3.
This version has no new features (when compared to the DDR3 version) and so it performs exactly like it.
GeForce GTX 550 Ti is a fast-middle-class graphics card based on the 40nm, Fermi architecture.
It's based on the Fermi GF116 Core (power optimized GF106 Core, seen on GTS 450) and offers 192 Shader Processing Units, 32 TMUs and 24 ROPs, on 192-bit memory interface of fast GDDR5. The central unit runs at 900MHz and the memory clock operates at 1025MHz.
It's at essence an overclocked GeForce GTS 450 that consumes just a little more power due to the Core optimizations.
Some modern demanding games will run at the highest settings using a 1080p resolution but the largest part will have to be played with a 720p resolution to be played optimally.
This Graphics Card needs to be paired with a decent Quad Core CPU.
