In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon R7 250 Sapphire 1GB Edition Crossfire are very slightly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 Club3D CoolStream Super OC 1GB Edition.

The R7 250 has a 100 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 560, but the GTX 560 has 8 more Texture Mapping Units than the R7 250. As a result, the GTX 560 exhibits a 2.4 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the R7 250. 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 100 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 560, but the GTX 560 has 16 more Render Output Units than the R7 250. As a result, the GTX 560 exhibits a 12.8 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the R7 250. 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 GTX 560, 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 GTX 560.

The R7 250 has 1024 MB more video memory than the GTX 560, 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 15.9 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 560, which means that the memory performance of the R7 250 is slightly better than the GTX 560.

The Radeon R7 250 Sapphire 1GB Edition Crossfire has 768 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 560 Club3D CoolStream Super OC 1GB Edition has 336. However, the actual shader performance of the R7 250 is 685 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 560 is 605. The R7 250 having 80 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the R7 250 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 560.

The R7 250 transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 560. This means that the R7 250 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 560.

The Radeon R7 250 Sapphire 1GB Edition Crossfire requires 130 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 560 Club3D CoolStream Super OC 1GB Edition requires 176 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the R7 250 and a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the GTX 560. The GTX 560 requires 46 Watts more than the R7 250 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 560 may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the R7 250.
