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.
