In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 7600 GS Asus Silent Edition are massively better than the AMD Radeon 9250.

The 7600 GS was released over a year more recently than the Radeon 9250, and so the 7600 GS 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 GS 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 GS also has superior memory performance overall.

The 7600 GS has 22.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Radeon 9250, which means that the memory performance of the 7600 GS is slightly better than the Radeon 9250.

The GeForce 7600 GS Asus Silent Edition has 12 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon 9250 has 4. However, the actual shader performance of the 7600 GS is 5 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon 9250 is 1. The 7600 GS having 4 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the 7600 GS delivers a slightly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Radeon 9250.

The GeForce 7600 GS Asus Silent Edition requires 27 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 GS.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce 7600 GS Asus Silent Edition is a special edition of the GeForce 7600 GS. See the page of the standard edition for more information about it.
The biggest feature is the reduced noise that went from average to almost none and according to Asus the "Splendid video enhancement technology detects the activation and usage of video applications and automatically optimizes image quality for the best visual results". No gaming optimizations were included and so the performance, when gaming, is exactly like the standard edition.
The 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.
