In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 590 EVGA Classified Hydro Copper Edition are significantly better than the AMD Radeon HD 7750 Crossfire.

The HD 7750 has a 170 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 590, but the GTX 590 has 64 more Texture Mapping Units than the HD 7750. As a result, the GTX 590 exhibits a 29.4 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the HD 7750. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The HD 7750 has a 170 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 590, but the GTX 590 has 64 more Render Output Units than the HD 7750. As a result, the GTX 590 exhibits a 34.9 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the HD 7750. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The HD 7750 was released less than a year after the GTX 590, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The GTX 590 has 1024 MB more video memory than the HD 7750, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GTX 590 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 590 has 187.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the HD 7750, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 590 is massively better than the HD 7750.

Both the GeForce GTX 590 EVGA Classified Hydro Copper Edition and the Radeon HD 7750 Crossfire have 1024 Shader Processing Units. While the two GPUs have the same number of SPUs, the actual performance delivered by the GTX 590 is 1290 and by the HD 7750 is 696. Knowing that the shader performance of the GTX 590 is superior, it is not necessary to examine the GPUs' respective Texture and Pixel Fill Rates.

The HD 7750 transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 590. This means that the HD 7750 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 590.

The GeForce GTX 590 EVGA Classified Hydro Copper Edition requires 365 Watts to run and the Radeon HD 7750 Crossfire requires 110 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 700 Watts for the GTX 590 and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the HD 7750. The GTX 590 requires 255 Watts more than the HD 7750 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 590 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the HD 7750.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce GTX 590 EVGA Classified Hydro Copper is a special edition of the dual-graphics solution GeForce GTX 590.
This edition comes overclocked out of the box in the central unit that went from 608MHz to 630MHz and in the operating memory clock, which is now of 864MHz. Furthermore, it features a new cooling system which keeps the card cool under load.
Benchmarks indicate a 5% performance boost over the reference card and so it proves to be faster than GeForce GTX 680.
Radeon HD 7750 Crossfire is a solution of two Radeon HD 7750 put together using AMD'S Crossfire technology.
Check the page of Radeon HD 7750 to know more about its chip.
Crossfire relies a lot on proper driver support and may suffer from micro-stuttering in lower frame rates (below 30). Benchmarks indicate the performance is overall, is up around 60% better a single Radeon HD 7750 performing by itself but at times (depending whether or not the 3D game supports crossfire or in the graphics driver) it performed worse than a single Radeon HD 7750. Expect this combination to draw up to 110 Watt though the average power consumption should be slightly lower.
Most demanding games will run at the highest settings.
