Radeon R7 250X Game Requirement Analysis

Radeon R7 250X is a fast-middle-class Graphics Card based on the Graphics Core Next architecture. It offers the Cape Verde XT GPU.
The Cape Verde XT Core is a GCN 1.1 GPU and was first seen on Radeon HD 7770 and then re-used in the OEM only Radeon HD 8760.
It offers 640 Shader Processing Units, 40 TMUs and 16 ROPs, on a 128-bits memory interface of fast GDDR5.
Radeon R7 250X comes clocked at 950MHz (though there might be some 1GHz versions) and has its operating memory clock set at 1125MHz. The rated TDP board is of 80W and the release price around $99.
This card should come in 1GB and 2GB versions, though both will offer the same performance.
Its performance has proven to be exactly like Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition (if clocked at 1GHz) and thus this card is not suited for 1080p gaming but it can handle 720p with ease. The 950MHz versions will be around 3% slower.
