    AMD launched the Radeon R7 265, a mainstream graphics card designed to fill the price gap between the $139 Radeon R7 260X, and the $179 Radeon R9 270. Based on the 28 nm "Curacao" silicon, the card features a core configuration not too different from that of the previous generation Radeon HD 7850. On offer are 1024 stream processors, 64 TMUs, 32 ROPs, and a 256-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface, holding 2 GB of memory. The card supports DirectX 11.2, OpenGL 4.3, and Mantle. With it, AMD hopes to take on $150-ish NVIDIA GeForce products such as the GTX 650 Ti Boost, and probably the upcoming GTX 750. It starts at US $149.99.

    Reminds me of the naming monikers the old NVidia series used. 275, 465 and all that.

    Charlie D is the voice of true enlightenment and factual reasoning. I don't see why everybody has such a problem with the guy, he's a modern day conjecture saint

    No, the true surprise is that Charlie recommended against an AMD card. What is happening to him?

    He is liking to the bigger Nvidia sausage to gag on?

    I was unaware that anyone actually read that drivel besides flamboyant fanbois from either camp looking to stoke their fires and stroke their...well, you know.

    I'd be more inclined to purchase a 260x with the GCN1.1 architecture. I suspect nearly identical performance with better features and power consumption, at a lower price.

    Enthusiasts be like... oh f this, another rebrand... the rest of the 99% consumers be like... OMG unbeatable performance for that price, great OC potential, very decent power consumption at just on 6-pin, free game(s?)... etc...

    Seriously tho, it's a great card for the price, and with the R7 260X price cut, AMD is relentless about keeping it's market share for that segment, or getting new ground even. Of course GTX 750 (Ti) might complicate stuff, but we'll see.
