AMD Radeon R7 260 Image AMD Bonaire Image
The Radeon R7 260 is a mid-range graphics card by AMD, launched in December 2013. Built on the 28 nm process, and based on the Bonaire graphics processor, in its Bonaire PRO variant, the card supports DirectX 11.2. The Bonaire graphics processor is an average sized chip with a die area of 160 mm² and 2,080 million transistors. Unlike the fully unlocked Radeon HD 7790, which uses the same GPU but has all 896 shaders enabled, AMD has disabled some shading units on the Radeon R7 260 to reach the product's target shader count. It features 768 shading units, 48 texture mapping units and 16 ROPs. AMD has placed 2,048 MB GDDR5 memory on the card, which are connected using a 128-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 1000 MHz, memory is running at 1500 MHz.
We recommend the AMD Radeon R7 260 for gaming with highest details at resolutions up to, and including, 1680x1050.
Being a dual-slot card, the AMD Radeon R7 260 draws power from 1x 6-pin power connectors, with power draw rated at 95 W maximum. Display outputs include: 1x DVI, 1x HDMI, 1x DisplayPort. Radeon R7 260 is connected to the rest of the system using a PCIe 3.0 x16 interface. The card measures 170 mm in length, and features a dual-slot cooling solution. Its price at launch was 109 US Dollars.
