In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon R7 260X Gigabyte 2GB OC Rev. 1.0 Edition are significantly better than the AMD Radeon HD 7750 VTX3D 1GB DDR3 Edition.

The R7 260X has a 388 MHz higher core clock speed and 24 more Texture Mapping Units than the HD 7750. This results in the R7 260X providing 40.9 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 R7 260X has a 388 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD 7750 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the R7 260X providing 6.2 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 260X was released over a year more recently than the HD 7750, and so the R7 260X is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the HD 7750.

The R7 260X has 1024 MB more video memory than the HD 7750, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the R7 260X also has superior memory performance overall.

The R7 260X has 78.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the HD 7750, which means that the memory performance of the R7 260X is much better than the HD 7750.

The Radeon R7 260X Gigabyte 2GB OC Rev. 1.0 Edition has 896 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 7750 VTX3D 1GB DDR3 Edition has 512. However, the actual shader performance of the R7 260X is 905 and the actual shader performance of the HD 7750 is 348. The R7 260X having 557 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the R7 260X delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the HD 7750.

The Radeon R7 260X Gigabyte 2GB OC Rev. 1.0 Edition requires 115 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Radeon HD 7750 VTX3D 1GB DDR3 Edition. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the R7 260X and a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the HD 7750. The R7 260X has been recommended a PSU with 50 Watts more than the HD 7750. The difference is significant enough that the R7 260X may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the HD 7750.

Mini ReviewOverview
Radeon R7 260X Gigabyte 2GB OC Rev. 1.0 Edition is a Special Edition of AMD's Fast-Middle-Class Radeon R7 260X, created by Gigabyte.

Overclock: Central Unit
The Central Unit has been increased from 1100MHz to 1188MHz.

Overclock: Memory Clock
None.

Frame Buffer
Untouched.

Cooling Solution
GIGABYTE custom-designed 10 cm cooler: As opposed to the stereotype, GIGABYTE is able to maximize fan size to 10cm with the latest cooling design. With a 10cm fan, the card is virtually silent that its noise level runs much lower.
