Technical specs

General performance parameters such as number of shaders, GPU core base clock and boost clock speeds, manufacturing process, texturing and calculation speed. These parameters indirectly speak of performance, but for precise assessment you have to consider their benchmark and gaming test results. Note that power consumption of some graphics cards can well exceed their nominal TDP, especially when overclocked.

Competitors of Radeon Graphics 320SP from NVIDIA

We believe that the nearest equivalent to Radeon Graphics 320SP from NVIDIA is GeForce GTX 460.

Here are some closest NVIDIA rivals to Radeon Graphics 320SP:

Advantages of AMD Radeon 550X

More pipelines (512 vs 320)

Advantages of AMD Radeon Graphics 320SP

Somewhat newer (6 January 2020 vs 27 March 2019)

Finer manufacturing process technology (7 vs 14 nm)

Lower power consumption (15W vs 50W), meaning that the rival with higher TDP might require a better cooler or other thermal solution.

So, which one is the better GPU?

Technical City couldn't decide between AMD Radeon 550X and AMD Radeon Graphics 320SP. We've got no test results to judge.
