AMD launches Radeon R7 265 graphics card

Budget-oriented AMD fans have a new reason to be happy because the US company has officially launched the rumored Radeon R7 265 graphics card – and the deal has become even sweeter as the card has turned out to be a bit faster than previously expected.

The Radeon R7 265 will occupy the market niche between the Radeon R7 260X and Radeon R9 270. The new AMD card is based on a 28 nm Curacao chip and does not differ much from the previous generation Radeon HD 7850. It comes with 1024 stream processors, 64 TMUs, 32 ROPs and a 256-bit memory bus that serves 2 GB of GDDR5 memory. The GPU of the card runs at 900 MHz (925 MHz in Turbo Mode) and reaches 1.89 TFLOPS of power, while the on-board GDDR5 memory runs at 5600 MHz. It also comes with an additional 6-pin power connector for getting extra power from your PSU. The card needs 150 watts of power and fully supports DirectX 11.2, OpenGL 4.3 and Mantle.

The Radeon R7 265 can be yours now for USD 150.
