R7 250 vs HD 7750?

Hey, I was about to buy the 7750 and then realized the R7 250 had just been released. I read that it was supposed to be a replacement for the 7750, is this correct? I like the 7750 for its single slot size and no need for extra power cable. Will the R7 250 comply with these requirements while providing a performance boost?

    heres a performance comparison in case you need it. also i looked at pics from different vendors and i didnt see any extra power necessities so your good there. they all looked to be single slot except for the MSI model that was dual slot for the extra cooling headroom.

    Hope this helps
  2. the r7 250 seems to be slightly slower than the 7750. Does anyone know if the 260x requires the crossfire bridge? I'm hoping to crossfire it with my a10-6800k

    yea, you are right, the R7 250 is a little bit slower than the 7750, but faster than the 7730

  4. Well i am late to the party but you may wanna know that R7 250 will support Direct X 11.2.
  5. It's kind of a let down, especially when even 7770 is cheaper than R7 250 atm.
  6. Is R7 250x better than 7750 or not ??

    Better go for hd 7750 gddr5 than r7 250.
  8. I'm really late, but I'd just like to point out that the R7-250X (with the X) is a rebadged version of the 7770

    I believe that when using an APU, you don't need a crossfire bridge. It should work in Dual Graphics mode just by having both of them plugged into the mobo.

    @dome94 and
    @Jesse Fitzpatrick

    The conclusion and the link given by dome94 is very inaccurate.

    Reasons:
    1. the link he/she gives compares a slower/lower power version of the R7 250 to the 7750. It does not compare the standard version of the R7 250 with the 7750. AMD's naming flop is seen here, but the point to be taken is in the next point
    2. The correct Toms review of the standard R7 250 is at http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/radeon-r7-240-and-250,3717.html
    3. The correct image comparing the standard R7-250 with the 7750 (and to the 7770) is http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/radeon-r7-240-and-250,3717-10.html

    In the image in this page, you will see that R7-250 is 90-92% as fast as the 7750, despite having 128 less shaders.

    Please see the links I have given, I believe they are more accurate.
    (and I don't know why the final post has some weird code included at the end. sorry.)
  11. We have done some work with Club3D and it is correct that the R7 250 is essentially just a re-badged HD7750. However, the HD7750 actually came in two different variants but only some manufacturers, Club3D being one, actually used the over clocked version.

    The R7 250 is not availble in a overclocked, see R7 250X, version and therefore when you compare like for like it may or may not be a fair comparison because you probably don't know if the overclocked HD7750 was being tested.
