AMD debuts Radeon R7 260
Advanced Micro Devices has presented a new graphics card based on the company’s current GPU architecture. The novelty is called Radeon R7 260 and comes with a 28 nm Bonaire Pro GPU with 768 stream processors on the GCN architecture. The card also supports PCI-E 3.0 x16 and there’s 1 GB of GDDR5 memory on the familiar 128-bit bandwidth bus.
The Radeon R7 260 offers a few rather interesting things – the GPU runs at 1000 MHz, while the memory functions at 6000 MHz. The card also supports two DVI ports, one HDMI port and one DisplayPort. Next to all these ports the new graphics card sports support for DirectX 11.2, Mantle and OpenGL 4.3 as well as CrossFire, PowerTune, ZeroCore Power technologies and others.
The new AMD card will be on the market in mid-January 2014 and will sell for around USD 100-110. The card will compete with the current GeForce GTX 650 Ti and GTX 650 graphics cards by NVIDIA.
