Gigabyte releases short R7 360 video card
Gigabyte has launched a new Radeon R7 360 video card in Europe. The card carries the GV-R736D5-2GD code name and comes with an unusually short PCB, which makes it especially suitable for HTPC systems or mini-ITX computers.
The new Gigabyte GV-R736D5-2GD video card offers AMD’s Tobago Pro GPU also known as Bonaire Pro. The chip includes 768 stream processors on the GCN 1.1 architecture and runs at 1050 MHz. The card is based on Ultra Durable 2 components, which is a guarantee for a long life and includes 2 GB of GDDR5 memory that runs at 6500 MHz. The memory is served by a 128-bit memory bus.
In the back the GV-R736D5-2GD offers DVI-I, DVI-D, HDMI and DisplayPort connectors and support for up to 4096 x 2160 pixel resolutions over the HDMI and DisplayPort connectors. The card comes with an additional 6-pin power connector and TDP of 100 watts. A custom-designed 90 mm cooler keeps the GPU and memory temperatures low.
The GV-R736D5-2GD supports DirectX 12, OpenGL 4.5, OpenCL 1.2, CrossFireX, PowerTune, ZeroCore Power, FreeSync, Eyefinity, HD3D, TrueAudio, Virtual Super Resolution (VSR) and more and sells for around EUR 110 on the European market.
