Radeon R7 265 MSI OC 2GB Edition Game Requirement Analysis

Radeon R7 265 MSI OC 2GB Edition is a special edition of the fast-middle-class Radeon R7 265.
This edition comes with a custom cooling system and is overclocked out of the box, though the central unit still runs at 900MHz, the Boost clock is now of 955MHz.
Benchmarks indicate a 1% performance boost over the standard edition and so GeForce GTX 660 is still faster.

A single R9 270 will be a little slower than 2 R7 265's, but in most games you will see not much difference because the bad optimization for crossfire in some cases… (één R9 270 is iets stabieler, om t ff snel in t nederlands te zeggen ;))

Ja inderdaad, ik zou zeggen dat je beter kunt gaan voor een R9 280. dan zie je aanzienlijk meer verschil dan upgraden naar een R9 270.

I nearly got this card when I built my pc, but I wanted to spend less, so I got my 260X which I will crossfire in the near future.
