In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti Superclocked DS Edition are significantly better than the AMD Radeon R7 250X.

The Radeon R7 250X has a 50 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 560 Ti, but the GTX 560 Ti has 24 more Texture Mapping Units than the Radeon R7 250X. As a result, the GTX 560 Ti exhibits a 19.6 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the Radeon 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 Radeon R7 250X has a 50 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 560 Ti, but the GTX 560 Ti has 16 more Render Output Units than the Radeon R7 250X. As a result, the GTX 560 Ti exhibits a 13.6 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the Radeon R7 250X. 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 over a year more recently than the GTX 560 Ti, and so the Radeon 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 560 Ti.

The Radeon R7 250X has 1024 MB more video memory than the GTX 560 Ti, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, the overall memory performance is about the same.

The GTX 560 Ti has 62.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Radeon R7 250X, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 560 Ti is much better than the Radeon R7 250X.

The GeForce GTX 560 Ti Superclocked DS Edition has 384 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon R7 250X has 640. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 560 Ti is 691 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon R7 250X is 517. The GTX 560 Ti having 174 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 560 Ti delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Radeon R7 250X.

The Radeon R7 250X transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 560 Ti. This means that the Radeon R7 250X is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 560 Ti.

The GeForce GTX 560 Ti Superclocked DS Edition requires 170 Watts to run and the Radeon R7 250X requires 80 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the GTX 560 Ti and a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the Radeon R7 250X. The GTX 560 Ti requires 90 Watts more than the Radeon R7 250X to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 560 Ti may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the Radeon R7 250X.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce GTX 560 Ti Superclocked DS Edition is special edition of the high-end-class level GeForce GTX 560 Ti.
The new features include increased memory and core clocks, from 1002MHz to 1053MHz and from 822MHz to 900MHz, respectively and a new cooling system.
Benchmarks indicate a weighted average 9% performance boost when compared to the standard GeForce GTX 560 Ti.
Radeon 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.
