Radeon R7 250 vs Radeon R7 430 benchmarks

According to the hardwareDB Benchmark, the Radeon R7 430 GPU is faster than the Radeon R7 250 in gaming.

In our comparison, the Radeon R7 250 has a slightly higher core clock speed. This is the frequency at which the graphics core is running at. While not necessarily an indicator of overall performance, this metric can be useful when comparing two GPUs based on the same architecture. In addition, the Radeon R7 250 also has a slightly higher boost clock speed. This is a frequency that can be reached if the GPU is cooled sufficiently and has enough power.

In addition, the Radeon R7 430 has a significantly lower TDP at 50 W when compared to the Radeon R7 250 at 75 W. This is not a measure of performance, but rather the amount of heat generated by the chip when running at its highest speed.

According to the results of the hardwareDB benchmark utility, the Radeon R7 430 is faster than the Radeon R7 250.
