In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon R7 250X are massively better than the Nvidia Quadro FX 3700.

The Radeon R7 250X was released over three years more recently than the Quadro FX 3700, and so the Radeon R7 250X is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the Quadro FX 3700 when running the latest games.

The Radeon R7 250X has 1536 MB more video memory than the Quadro FX 3700, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the Radeon R7 250X also has superior memory performance overall.

The Radeon R7 250X has 20.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Quadro FX 3700, which means that the memory performance of the Radeon R7 250X is slightly better than the Quadro FX 3700.

The Radeon R7 250X has 640 Shader Processing Units and the Quadro FX 3700 has 112. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon R7 250X is 517 and the actual shader performance of the Quadro FX 3700 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 Quadro FX 3700.

The Radeon R7 250X transistor size technology is 37 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Quadro FX 3700. This means that the Radeon R7 250X is expected to run much cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Quadro FX 3700.

The Radeon R7 250X requires 80 Watts to run and the Quadro FX 3700 requires 78 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the Radeon R7 250X and a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the Quadro FX 3700. The Radeon R7 250X requires 2 Watts more than the Quadro FX 3700 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 Quadro FX 3700.

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.
The Quadro line of GPU cards emerged in an effort at market segmentation by NVIDIA. In introducing Quadro, NVIDIA was able to charge a premium for essentially the same graphics hardware in professional markets, and direct resources to properly serve the needs of those markets. To differentiate their offerings, NVIDIA used driver software and firmware to enable features vital to segments of the workstation market; e.g., high performance anti-aliased lines and two-sided lighting were reserved for the Quadro product. In addition, improved support through a certified driver program was put in place. These features were of little value in the gaming markets that NVIDIA's products already sold to, but prevented high end customers from using the less expensive products. This practice continues even today although some products use higher capacity faster memory.
