The SAPPHIRE R7 250X Vapor-X has 1 GB of the latest DDR5 memory clocked at 1300 MHz (5.2 GB/s effective) and a GCN architecture with 640 stream processors and core clocks of 1100 MHz to deliver new levels of performance in its price segment. It features a dual fan SAPPHIRE exclusive Vapor-X cooler, which delivers quiet and efficient cooling even under load. SAPPHIRE pioneered the use of Vapor Chamber cooler technology in graphics cards and has received industry acclaim for its use in previous models.

Club 3D Introduces Radeon R7 250 Low Profile and R7 250X Graphics Cards

Today we have two new members of the mainstream Club 3D Radeon R7 family to show you. The new Radeon R7 250 Low Profile and R7 250X.

Until now the cards in the R7 series use the Standard Profile. But traditionally there is a strong demand for a capable card in Low Profile form factor, to be used mainly in a powerful HTPC system or a variety of custom applications. For these purposes Club 3D now adds the new Radeon R7 250 Low Profile to the range.

SAPPHIRE Announces the R7 250 ULTIMATE Graphics Card

SAPPHIRE Technology has just introduced a passively cooled card in its new R7 series. The SAPPHIRE R7 250 ULTIMATE is the first totally silent card to embody all the features of this new generation of products based on the highly successful graphics GCN (Graphics Core Next) architecture from AMD.

The SAPPHIRE R7 250 ULTIMATE is the first card in this generation to use a passive heatpipe and heatsink cooler with no fan to deliver totally silent cooling, and increased reliability as it has no mechanical moving parts. It shares all the features of the R7 series and the highly acclaimed GCN graphics processing architecture making it ideal for HTPCs and any general purpose PC where operational noise needs to be kept to a minimum. Casual and online gamers will find its silent operation attractive, as the GCN architecture supports gaming at 1080p with moderate settings.

AMD Radeon R7 260 Launched

AMD launched the Radeon R7 260 graphics cards, positioned in between the $139 Radeon R7 260X, and the $89 Radeon R7 250, which makes for a fairly big gap. It is expected to be priced no more than $110. Based on the same 28 nm "Bonaire" silicon as the R7 260X and the HD 7790 from the previous generation, the R7 260 is a mildly de-tuned variant of the R7 260X.

The Radeon R7 260 features just 768 of the 896 stream processors physically present on the "Bonaire" silicon. The GPU is clocked at 1000 MHz, compared to the 1100 MHz of the R7 260X; and the memory is clocked at 6.00 GHz (GDDR5-effective), compared to the 6.50 GHz of its sibling, which churns out a memory bandwidth of 96 GB/s on the chip's 128-bit wide memory bus. 1 GB, and not 2 GB is the standard memory amount. The maximum power draw is reduced to 95-Watt from 115-Watt on the R7 260X, and the card makes do with a single 6-pin PCIe power connector to draw power from. API support is consistent - DirectX 11.2, OpenGL 4.3, and Mantle. AMD TrueAudio appears to be supported.

XFX Unveils Silent Radeon R7 200 Series Graphics Cards

XFX unveiled the first passive-cooled Radeon R7 200 series graphics cards, the full-height Radeon R7 250 Core Edition, and the half-height (low-profile) Radeon R7 240 Core Edition, pictured in that order. Both cards are based on a common half-height PCB design for the 28 nm "Oland" GPU, but due to higher thermal loads on the R7 250, its taller heatsink makes the card full-height. The R7 250 Core Edition offers AMD reference clock speeds of 1050 MHz core, and 4.60 GHz memory. It offers 1 GB of GDDR5 memory across a 128-bit wide memory interface. Its cooling solution is a heat-pipe fed aluminium fin stack. The R7 240 Core Edition, on the other hand, retains the same PCB, but makes do with a more compact cooling solution that makes the card low-profile ready. It features AMD reference clock speeds of 780 MHz core and 1.80 GHz memory, featuring 2 GB of DDR3 memory. The R7 250 Core Edition is priced around €92, while the R7 240 Core Edition goes for around €75.

Club 3D Launches Radeon R7 260X, 250 and 240 Graphics Cards

It's not a secret that AMD has had the performance lead at any important price point over the past few years. Graphics cards like the Radeon HD 7850, 7790, 7770 and 7750 have proved to be impressive performers while being very affordable. Compared to other offerings in the market they still are great products. Graphics Core Next architecture, DisplayPort 1.2 outputs, DirectX 11 support and Clock Speeds of over 1 GHz, the HD 77XX and 78XX series delivered High End specs at a Mid Range price point.

With the launch of the new Radeon R7 range this development will be continued further. The different segments will be clearly distinguishable by the new label they carry. R9 stands for the enthusiast, High End segment, while the R7 label contains capable performers in the Mid Range segment.

Radeon R9 and Radeon R7 Graphics Cards Pictured Some More

Here's a quick recap of AMD's updated product stack, spread between the R9 and R7 series. This article can help you understand the new nomenclature. AMD's lineup begins with the Radeon R7 250 and Radeon R7 260X. The two are based on the 28 nm "Curacao" silicon, which is a variation of the "Pitcairn" silicon the previous-generation Radeon HD 7870 was based on. The R7 250 is expected to be priced around US $89, with 1 GB of RAM, and performance rated at over 2,000 points by 3DMark Firestrike benchmark. The R7 260X, features double the memory at 2 GB, higher clock speeds, possibly more number crunching resources, Firestrike score of over 3,700 points, and a pricing that's around $139. This card should turn up the heat against the likes of GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost.

Moving on, there's the $199 Radeon R9 270X. Based on a chip not much unlike "Tahiti LE," it features 2 GB of memory, and 3DMark Firestrike score of over 5,500 points. Then there's the Radeon R9 280X. This card, priced attractively at $299, is practically a rebrand of the Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition with. It features 3 GB of RAM, and over 6,800 points on 3DMark Firestrike. Then there are the R9 290 and R9 290X. AMD flew dozens of scribes thousands of miles over to Hawaii, and left them without an official announcement on the specifications of the two. From what AMD told us, the two feature 4 GB of memory, over 5,000 TFLOP/s compute power, and over 300 GB/s memory bandwidth. The cards we mentioned are pictured in that order below.
