Radeon R7 260 Game Requirement Analysis

Radeon R7 260 is a fast-middle-class graphics card based on the Second Revision of the GCN architecture. It packs a Core codenamed Bonaire PRO.
The Bonaire PRO is a cut-down version of the Bonaire XT Core used on Radeon HD 7790. It comes with 14 Compute Units and thus offers 768 Shader Processing Units, 48 TMUs and 16 ROPs. This, on a 128-bit memory interface of fast GDDR5. Compared to the Bonaire XT Core, it has support for DirectX 11.2 and has support for AMD's TrueAudio Technology.
Benchmarks indicate its performance is around 10% slower than Radeon HD 7790 and a little over that when taking Radeon R7 260X as a reference.
The card proves to be very inefficient seeing as it has a higher rated TDP board than Radeon HD 7790 and its release price of $109 makes Radeon HD 7850 a better option.

I think the R7 250X makes this card obsolete. Cheaper, similar performance too.

No, it isn't. Radeon R7 250X = Radeon HD 7770.
