AMD launches the Radeon R5 230

Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) has launched perhaps the last and slowest member of the Volcanic Islands family. The card is known as Radeon R5 230 and is a budget video card offer for people who do not need that much graphics power.

The Radeon R5 230 is built around the Caicos GPU and features 160 stream processors, 8 texture units and 4 raster units. The card supports DirectX 11 and OpenGL 4.3 and sports a GPU that runs at 625 MHz and 1 GB of DDR3 memory, accessed over a 64-bit bus. The DDR3 memory runs at 1066 MHz.

The new card is now available by many graphics card makers and sells for around USD 50.
