In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 7750 VTX3D 1GB DDR3 Edition are massively better than the AMD Radeon HD 2600 Pro.

The HD 7750 has a 200 MHz higher core clock speed and 24 more Texture Mapping Units than the HD 2600. This results in the HD 7750 providing 20.8 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 HD 7750 has a 200 MHz higher core clock speed and 12 more Render Output Units than the HD 2600. This results in the HD 7750 providing 10.4 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 three years more recently than the HD 2600, and so the HD 7750 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the HD 2600 when running the latest games.

The HD 7750 has 768 MB more video memory than the HD 2600, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the HD 7750 also has superior memory performance overall.

The HD 7750 has 9.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the HD 2600, which means that the memory performance of the HD 7750 is marginally better than the HD 2600.

The Radeon HD 7750 VTX3D 1GB DDR3 Edition has 512 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 2600 Pro has 120. However, the actual shader performance of the HD 7750 is 348 and the actual shader performance of the HD 2600 is 72. The HD 7750 having 276 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the HD 7750 delivers a significantly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the HD 2600.

The HD 7750 transistor size technology is 37 nm (nanometers) smaller than the HD 2600. This means that the HD 7750 is expected to run much cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the HD 2600.

The Radeon HD 2600 Pro requires 35 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 HD 2600. 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.
Radeon HD 2600 Pro is a middle-class GPU based on the 65nm variant of the second unified shader architecture, R600.
It's based on the RV630 Core and offers 120 Shader Processing Units, 8 TMUs and 4 ROPs a 128-bit memory interface of standard DDR2. The central unit runs at 600MHz and the memory clock runs at up to 500MHz.
Its performance is, overall, below the average and so today's games are only playable at unattractive resolutions and using low (on some) or medium (maybe) presets and DirectX 11 games aren't supported.
