In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon R7 250X are massively better than the AMD Radeon HD 8570D.

The Radeon R7 250X has a 106 MHz higher core clock speed and 24 more Texture Mapping Units than the Radeon HD 8570D. This results in the Radeon R7 250X providing 24.5 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 Radeon R7 250X has a 106 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Render Output Units than the Radeon HD 8570D. This results in the Radeon R7 250X providing 8.4 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 Radeon R7 250X was released less than a year after the Radeon HD 8570D, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The Radeon R7 250X has 2048 MB video memory, but the Radeon HD 8570D does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The Radeon R7 250X has 640 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 8570D has 256. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon R7 250X is 517 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 8570D is 140. The Radeon R7 250X having 377 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Radeon R7 250X delivers a significantly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Radeon HD 8570D.

The Radeon R7 250X requires 80 Watts to run and the Radeon HD 8570D requires 65 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the Radeon R7 250X. The Radeon R7 250X requires 15 Watts more than the Radeon HD 8570D to run. The difference is not significant enough for the Radeon R7 250X to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the Radeon HD 8570D.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewRadeon R7 250X is a fast-middle-class Graphics Card based on the Graphics Core Next architecture. It offers the Cape Verde XT GPU.
The Cape Verde XT Core is a GCN 1.1 GPU and was first seen on Radeon HD 7770 and then re-used in the OEM only Radeon HD 8760.
It offers 640 Shader Processing Units, 40 TMUs and 16 ROPs, on a 128-bits memory interface of fast GDDR5.
Radeon R7 250X comes clocked at 950MHz (though there might be some 1GHz versions) and has its operating memory clock set at 1125MHz. The rated TDP board is of 80W and the release price around $99.
This card should come in 1GB and 2GB versions, though both will offer the same performance.
Its performance has proven to be exactly like Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition (if clocked at 1GHz) and thus this card is not suited for 1080p gaming but it can handle 720p with ease. The 950MHz versions will be around 3% slower.
Radeon HD 8570D is an embedded Graphics Card on the mainstream Richland APUs A8-6600 and A8-6600K.
They offer 256 Shader Processing Units, 16 TMUs and 8 ROPs. The memory interface depends on whether or not the system's RAM is dual channelled.
While the central unit runs at 844MHz (for 6600K, 800MHz for 6600), since the GFX doesn't have dedicated memory, the bandwidth will depend on the system ram speed which can be up to 1866MHz (the max speed supported by the CPU). Therefore, the max operating memory clock is 933MHz.
Its performance is slightly worse than Intel HD 4600 and only very slightly better than previous Radeon HD 7560D.
