13 Dec 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

This GeForce GTS 250 graphics card is considered budget with poor modern game performance when playing anything more demanding than indie game requirements. DirectX 10 gaming system requirements will be met by this gpu.

How many years will the GeForce GTS 250 graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTS 250 in your PC? You should definitely consider replacing this GeForce GTS 250 graphics card, if it is still in your gaming PC.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTS 250? A good upgrade choice for this graphics card today would be the 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 6GB. For comparison of the 1000 most demanding games around today this suggested upgrade is 636% better and can meet 894 of their recommended requirements. Alternatively if you are thinking of upgrading this graphics card then we would currently suggest the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB. This PC hardware upgrade performs 477% better and can run 765 of today’s 1000 most demanding PC games.

Architecture
Tesla was NVIDIA's First Unified Shader Architecture.


GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed G92-428-B1 which has 8 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 128 Shader Processing Units, 64 TMUs and 16 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 738MHz.


Memory
The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of GDDR3, through a 256-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 1100MHz.


Features
DirectX 10.0 Support (10.0 Hardware Default) and support for SLI, NVIDIA PureVideo HD Technology, Dual-stream Hardware Acceleration, PhysX, CUDA, HybridPower and other technologies.


Cooling Solution
The Cooling Solution consists of a Single-Fan.


Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 150W, it requires at least a 450W PSU and it requires at least two 6-pin available connectors.


Performance
Gaming benchmarks put its performance around of a Radeon HD 4770, meaning it is much faster than Radeon HD 4850.
