In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 750 Ti Asus Strix DirectCU II OC 4GB Edition are significantly better than the AMD Radeon R7 250X.

The GTX 750 Ti has a 174 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the Radeon R7 250X. This results in the GTX 750 Ti providing 7 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 GTX 750 Ti has a 174 MHz higher core clock speed than the Radeon R7 250X and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GTX 750 Ti providing 2.8 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 GTX 750 Ti was released less than a year after the Radeon R7 250X, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The GTX 750 Ti has 2048 MB more video memory than the Radeon 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 750 Ti also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 750 Ti has 14.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Radeon R7 250X, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 750 Ti is slightly better than the Radeon R7 250X.

Both the GeForce GTX 750 Ti Asus Strix DirectCU II OC 4GB Edition and the Radeon R7 250X have 640 Shader Processing Units. While the two GPUs have the same number of SPUs, the actual performance delivered by the GTX 750 Ti is 1039 and by the Radeon R7 250X is 517. Knowing that the shader performance of the GTX 750 Ti is superior, it is not necessary to examine the GPUs' respective Texture and Pixel Fill Rates.

The GeForce GTX 750 Ti Asus Strix DirectCU II OC 4GB Edition requires 75 Watts to run and the Radeon R7 250X requires 80 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GTX 750 Ti and a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the Radeon R7 250X. The Radeon R7 250X requires 5 Watts more than the GTX 750 Ti to run. The difference is not significant enough for the Radeon R7 250X to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GTX 750 Ti.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GTX 750 Ti Asus Strix DirectCU II OC 4GB Edition is a Special Edition of NVIDIA's Fast-Middle-Class GeForce GTX 750 Ti, created by Asus.

Overclock: Central Unit
The Central Unit now runs at 1124MHz, instead of 1020MHz and goes up to 1202MHz, instead of 1085MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Overclock: Memory Clock

Frame Buffer
The Frame Buffer was doubled to 4GB: a gimmick which doesn't yield any performance boost and can be considered marketing to lure consumers into paying more for the same product.

Cooling Solution
DirectCU II Cooling Solution: Exclusive DirectCU II cooling technology outperforms reference designs with direct-GPU contact copper heatpipes and 190% larger dissipation area: this means performance that's 30% cooler and three-times (3X) quieter than reference for ultra-stable hardcore gaming with very low noise.

Benchmarks Indicate a 8% Performance Boost over the Reference GeForce GTX 750 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.
