Sapphire releases Radeon R7 360 Nitro graphics card
Long-time AMD partner Sapphire Technology has launched a new Radeon R7 360 video card, dubbed Nitro R7 360 2G D5. The new card targets casual gamers and offers all features you would expect from a modern graphics card including full support for DirectX 12.
The Nitro R7 360 2G D5 is based on the Tobago (Bonaire) GPU and sports 768 stream processors on the GCN 1.1 architecture. The card, as the name suggests has 2 GB of GDDR5 memory, a 128-bit memory bus and a dual-slot aluminum heatsink that gets cooled by a single cooling fan. The card runs its 28 nm GPU at 1060 MHz, while the memory operates at 6500 MHz (effective). In the back you will find three output ports – one DVI-I, one HDMI and one DisplayPort connector. The card measures 211.12 x 111.15 x 36 mm (8.31 x 4.38 x 1.42 inches) and requires a six-pin connector as well as a 500W PSU (suggested) in order to work properly. The overall power consumption is 150 watts and there’s full driver support for Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8/8.1 and Windows 10.
The new Sapphire Radeon R7 360 Nitro sells for around EUR 112.
