In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 670 PNY 2GB Edition are massively better than the AMD Radeon R7 250X Sapphire 1GB Edition.

The R7 250X has a 35 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 64.5 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 35 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 14.1 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 120.3 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 1GB Edition has 640 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 670 PNY 2GB Edition has 1344. However, the actual shader performance of the R7 250X is 517 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 670 is 1317. The GTX 670 having 800 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 1GB Edition requires 80 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 670 PNY 2GB Edition requires 170 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the R7 250X and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the GTX 670. The GTX 670 requires 90 Watts more than the R7 250X to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 670 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the R7 250X.
