GeForce GTS 250 compatibility review

Overall, the Nvidia GeForce GTS 250 has average performance. This should be expected only from older dedicated graphics cards, so this graphics card should definitely be avoided if building a system to power modern applications and games. This graphics card is now over 8 years old, which means it is extremely out of date and is based on very aged technologies. The driver support for the Nvidia GeForce GTS 250 is now fairly poor, so don't count on any new game optimizations. You may also encounter more and more graphical oddities as newer games are released.

With an effective SPU count of 236, the Nvidia GeForce GTS 250 processes shading and special graphical effects a mediocre rate. The GPU is quite power-hungry at 150 Watts.
