In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon R7 250 1GB Crossfire are significantly better than the AMD Radeon HD 7750 VTX3D 1GB DDR3 Edition.

The R7 250 has a 200 MHz higher core clock speed and 16 more Texture Mapping Units than the HD 7750. This results in the R7 250 providing 22.4 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 250 has a 200 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD 7750 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the R7 250 providing 3.2 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 250 was released over a year more recently than the HD 7750, and so the R7 250 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 R7 250 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 R7 250 also has superior memory performance overall.

The R7 250 has 121.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the HD 7750, which means that the memory performance of the R7 250 is massively better than the HD 7750.

The Radeon R7 250 1GB Crossfire has 768 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 7750 VTX3D 1GB DDR3 Edition has 512. However, the actual shader performance of the R7 250 is 685 and the actual shader performance of the HD 7750 is 348. The R7 250 having 337 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the R7 250 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the HD 7750.

The Radeon R7 250 1GB Crossfire requires 130 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Radeon HD 7750 VTX3D 1GB DDR3 Edition. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the R7 250 and a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the HD 7750. The R7 250 has been recommended a PSU with 100 Watts more than the HD 7750. The difference is significant enough that the R7 250 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the HD 7750.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Radeon R7 250 1GB Crossfire is a solution of two Radeon R7 250 1GB put together using AMD's Crossfire Technology.

It consists of 2 GPUs Codenamed GCN 1.1 Oland XT which, together, offer 768 Shader Processing Units, 48 TMUs and 16 ROPs.

The central unit runs at 1000MHz and goes up to 1050MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Each GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 1125MHz.

Power Consumption
Power Consumption lies between 125W and 135W.

Radeon R7 250 1GB Crossfire Offers slightly more Performance than the Higher Positioned Radeon R7 260 but comes at a higher cost and relies highly in proper Driver Support..

System Suggestions
Radeon R7 250 1GB Crossfire is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080. We recommend a Performance Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
Radeon HD 7750 VTX3D 1GB DDR3 Edition is a special edition of the fast-middle-class Radeon HD 7750 1GB DDR3.
This version has no new features (when compared to the DDR3 version) and so it performs exactly like it.
