In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU II OC Edition are massively better than the AMD Radeon R7 250X Sapphire Vapor-X OC Edition.

The R7 250X has a 120 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 670, but the GTX 670 has 72 more Texture Mapping Units than the R7 250X. As a result, the GTX 670 exhibits a 65.8 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the R7 250X. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The R7 250X has a 120 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 670, but the GTX 670 has 16 more Render Output Units than the R7 250X. As a result, the GTX 670 exhibits a 13.8 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the R7 250X. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The R7 250X was released over a year more recently than the GTX 670, and so the R7 250X is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GTX 670.

The GTX 670 has 1024 MB more video memory than the R7 250X, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GTX 670 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 670 has 109.1 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the R7 250X, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 670 is massively better than the R7 250X.

The Radeon R7 250X Sapphire Vapor-X OC Edition has 640 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU II OC Edition has 1344. However, the actual shader performance of the R7 250X is 598 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 670 is 1422. The GTX 670 having 824 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 670 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the R7 250X.

The Radeon R7 250X Sapphire Vapor-X OC Edition requires 80 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU II OC Edition. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the R7 250X.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewRadeon R7 250X Sapphire Vapor-X OC Edition is a special edition of the fast-middle-class Radeon R7 250X.
This edition comes with a custom cooling solution which will make the card even cooler and overclocked out of the box in the central unit which was increased from 950MHz to 1100MHz, while the operating memory clock is now of 1300MHz, instead of 1125MHz.
Benchmarks indicate a 10% performance boost when compared to the reference R7 250X.
GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU II OC Edition is a Special Edition of the powerful GeForce GTX 670. See the standard version for more information about it.
The new features include an increase in the core-clock that went from 915MHz to 980MHz while the Turbo Boost is now of 1058MHz. A 20% more effective cooler is also included.
The performance boost is significant and around 5% when compared to the standard GTX 670.
Most demanding games will run at the highest settings.
