In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 7600 GT 256MB are significantly better than the AMD Radeon 9250.

The 7600 GT was released over a year more recently than the Radeon 9250, and so the 7600 GT is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the Radeon 9250.

Both GPUs exhibit very poor performance, so rather than upgrading from one to the other you should consider looking at more powerful GPUs. Neither of these will be able to run the latest games in any playable way.

The 7600 GT has 128 MB more video memory than the Radeon 9250, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the 7600 GT also has superior memory performance overall.

The 7600 GT has 19.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Radeon 9250, which means that the memory performance of the 7600 GT is slightly better than the Radeon 9250.

The Radeon 9250 has 4 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 7600 GT 256MB has 12. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon 9250 is 1 and the actual shader performance of the 7600 GT is 4. The 7600 GT having 3 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the 7600 GT delivers a slightly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Radeon 9250.

The GeForce 7600 GT 256MB requires 40 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Radeon 9250. We would recommend a PSU with at least 350 Watts for the 7600 GT, but we do not have a recommended PSU wattage for the Radeon 9250.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewThe Radeon R200 is the second generation of Radeon graphics chips from ATI Technologies. The architecture features 3D acceleration based upon Microsoft Direct3D 8.0 and OpenGL 1.3, a major improvement in features and performance compared to the preceding Radeon R100 design. The GPU also includes 2D GUI acceleration, video acceleration, and multiple display outputs. 'R200' refers to the development codename of the initially released GPU of the generation. It is the basis for a variety of other succeeding products.The NVIDIA GeForce 7 Series graphics processing units (GPUs) represent a significant leap forward in 3D graphics design, delivering the unparalleled horsepower and revolutionary technologies you need to tackle the latest games and video applications. The GeForce 7 Series GPUs deliver blazing frame rates and outstanding image quality so you can experience full-throttle graphics performance.
