Compare any two graphics cards:
Radeon HD 7750 vs Radeon R7 250
IntroThe Radeon HD 7750 has clock speeds of 800 MHz on the GPU, and 1125 MHz on the 1024 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 512 SPUs along with 32 TAUs and 16 ROPs.
Compare those specs to the Radeon R7 250, which comes with GPU core speed of 1000 MHz, and 1024 MB of GDDR5 RAM running at 1150 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is comprised of 384 SPUs, 24 TAUs, and 8 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks
Power Consumption (Max TDP)
Theoretically, the Radeon R7 250 should perform just a bit faster than the Radeon HD 7750 in general. (explain)
Texel RateThe Radeon HD 7750 should be a bit (approximately 7%) better at texture filtering than the Radeon R7 250. (explain)
Pixel RateIf running with high levels of AA is important to you, then the Radeon HD 7750 is superior to the Radeon R7 250, by far. (explain)
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.
Price ComparisonPlease note that the price comparisons are based on search keywords, and might not be the exact same card listed on this page. We have no control over the accuracy of their search results.
Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the largest amount of information (measured in megabytes per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface in a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.
Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that are applied in one second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core clock 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 per second.
Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics card could possibly write to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the number of ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
