Radeon R7 260X Review

Overview
Radeon R7 260X is a Fast-Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the Second Revision of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture.


Architecture
Radeon R7 260X Equips a GPU Codenamed Bonaire XTX which is a Second Gen GCN GPU and is an upgraded version of the Bonaire XT GPU previously used on Radeon 7790.
Bonaire XT has 14 Compute Units activated and thus offers 896 Shader Processing Units, 56 TMUs and 16 ROPs.


GPU
The Central Unit is clocked at 1100MHz.


Memory: Speed
The GPU is equipped with fast GDDR5 and Accesses the Frame Buffer through a 128-bit Memory Interface. The Memory Clock Operates at 1625Hz.


Memory: Frame Buffer
The GPU can fill up a Memory Pool of up to 2GB. This would be useful were the Graphics Card suited for 1080p Gaming, which is not the case.


Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 115W, it requires at least a 500W PSU with one available 6-pin connector.


Performance
Radeon R7 260X is the Fastest of all Radeon R7 260X Variants and Delivers Performance almost up to 10% over the Older Radeon HD 7790.


System Suggestions
Radeon R7 260X is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1600x900. We recommend a Middle-Class Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.

Runs Fallout 4 on medium settings pretty well. My card gets to about 130 - 140 degrees Fahrenheit. Would it be safe, or even worth overclocking?

You should be perfectly fine, just take it easy and know that you may shorten the life of your card this way.

It may bottleneck this on cpu intensive games and you can get something like a good athlon II that works with your motherboard with this card

without a 6 pin cable attached to the GPU there is no way it will work properly or at all, since the PCI-E slot, the slot that you put your GPU in gives it only 75W maximum and this gpu needs more than 75W.


So even if your PSU is 1000W if there is no 6 pin cable then it will not work, not because of the fact that you don't have enough watts in your PSU, but because you are not giving those watts to the GPU.


Hope I helped.


Get a gtx 750, it doesn't require a 6 pin cable and it's almost as good :)
