Radeon R7 265 Game Requirement Analysis

Radeon R7 265 is a fast-middle-class Graphics Card based on the Pitcairn PRO core of the Graphics Core Next Architecture.
The Pitcairn PRO Core is a GCN 1.0 Core and was previously used on Radeon HD 7850. It offers 1024 Shader Processing Units, 64 TMUs and 32 ROPs, on a 256-bit memory interface.
Compared to Radeon HD 7850, the central unit runs at 900 (instead of 860MHz) and goes up to 925MHz, in Turbo Mode, while the memory clock operates at 1400MHz (instead of 1200MHz). Due to the overclock, the rated TDP is considerably higher and of 150W.
In terms of performance, it stands between Radeon HD 7850 and Radeon HD 7870.
The release price of $150 is what makes this graphics card attractive, as there are no major changes from one card to another but rather a new cooling system and overclocking out of the box, already offered in modified Radeon HD 7850 versions.

I was wondering if this card would be a perfect replacement for my current rig. I would choose the R7 265 from XFX, the 750ti, or 650ti as viable replacements. Any feedback would be nice.

Pros- they make graphic cards
Cons -they want money for that


…ok now I am serious
R7 265 is as I said little stronger than gtx750ti but need some 50W more of power
BUT 750ti have no need for power connector and some are lot smaller, like 1/2 of R7 265


R7 265 is renamed and overclocked HD7850 which is card I own and from my personaly experience I can say its enough for 1600x900 res

You sure about that mate? i3 draws 55W and this card draws 150W so that's 205W just from CPU and GPU

This card draws around 130w peak (Furmark) and 100w in gaming.


A I3-3220 with motherboard, SSD and some fans draw 67w from the wall during Cinebench, or around 60w DC.


That means the system will only draw 200w in total maximum, and more like 150-160w during gaming.


Even 250w is enough if it has a peg connector
