Radeon HD 7750 vs Radeon R7 250

Intro

The Radeon HD 7750 features a GPU clock speed of 800 MHz, and the 1024 MB of GDDR5 memory is set to run at 1125 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is comprised of 512 SPUs, 32 TAUs, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Compare all of that to the Radeon R7 250, which makes use of a 28 nm design. AMD has clocked the core speed at 1000 MHz. The GDDR5 memory runs at a frequency of 1150 MHz on this specific model. It features 384 SPUs along with 24 Texture Address Units and 8 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon HD 7750 55 Watts
Radeon R7 250 65 Watts
Difference: 10 Watts (18%)

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the Radeon R7 250 should be just a bit faster than the Radeon HD 7750 overall. (explain)

Radeon R7 250 73600 MB/sec
Radeon HD 7750 72000 MB/sec
Difference: 1600 (2%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon HD 7750 should be a little bit (about 7%) better at AF than the Radeon R7 250. (explain)

Radeon HD 7750 25600 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R7 250 24000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 1600 (7%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon HD 7750 should be a lot (about 60%) more effective at AA than the Radeon R7 250, and should be capable of handling higher resolutions without slowing down too much. (explain)

Radeon HD 7750 12800 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R7 250 8000 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 4800 (60%)

Please note that the above 'benchmarks' are all just theoretical - the results were calculated based on the card's specifications, and real-world performance may (and probably will) vary at least a bit.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the max amount of information (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface in a second. It's calculated by multiplying the bus width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed per second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the graphics card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics card can possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
