Radeon R7 260X Review
Radeon R7 260X is a Fast-Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the Second Revision of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) 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.
The Central Unit is clocked at 1100MHz.
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.
With a rated board TDP of 115W, it requires at least a 500W PSU with one available 6-pin connector.
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.
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.
