In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 7950 Boost Edition Crossfire are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 950 Asus Mini 2GB Edition.

The GTX 950 has a 276 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD 7950, but the HD 7950 has 176 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 950. As a result, the HD 7950 exhibits a 136.4 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GTX 950. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GTX 950 has a 276 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD 7950, but the HD 7950 has 32 more Render Output Units than the GTX 950. As a result, the HD 7950 exhibits a 18.4 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GTX 950. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GTX 950 was released over three years more recently than the HD 7950, and so the GTX 950 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the HD 7950 when running the latest games.

Both GPUs exhibit very powerful performance, so it probably isn't worth upgrading from one to the other, as both are capable of running even the most demanding games at the highest settings.

The HD 7950 has 4096 MB more video memory than the GTX 950, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the HD 7950 also has superior memory performance overall.

The HD 7950 has 374.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 950, which means that the memory performance of the HD 7950 is massively better than the GTX 950.

The GeForce GTX 950 Asus Mini 2GB Edition has 768 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 7950 Boost Edition Crossfire has 3584. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 950 is 1234 and the actual shader performance of the HD 7950 is 2818. The HD 7950 having 1584 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the HD 7950 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 950.

The GeForce GTX 950 Asus Mini 2GB Edition requires 150 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Radeon HD 7950 Boost Edition Crossfire. We would recommend a PSU with at least 350 Watts for the GTX 950.
