In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon R7 260X v2 PowerColor OC 1GB Edition are significantly better than the AMD Radeon HD 7750 Sapphire 1GB GDDR5 Edition.

The R7 260X has a 230 MHz higher core clock speed and 24 more Texture Mapping Units than the HD 7750. This results in the R7 260X providing 32.1 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 230 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD 7750 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the R7 260X providing 3.7 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 Radeon R7 260X v2 PowerColor OC 1GB Edition and the Radeon HD 7750 Sapphire 1GB GDDR5 Edition have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The R7 260X has 24 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the HD 7750, which means that the memory performance of the R7 260X is slightly better than the HD 7750.

The Radeon R7 260X v2 PowerColor OC 1GB Edition has 896 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 7750 Sapphire 1GB GDDR5 Edition has 512. However, the actual shader performance of the R7 260X is 784 and the actual shader performance of the HD 7750 is 348. The R7 260X having 436 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the R7 260X delivers a significantly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the HD 7750.

The Radeon R7 260X v2 PowerColor OC 1GB Edition requires 105 Watts to run and the Radeon HD 7750 Sapphire 1GB GDDR5 Edition requires 55 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the R7 260X and a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the HD 7750. The R7 260X requires 50 Watts more than the HD 7750 to run. 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.
