AMD Radeon R7 265 Image AMD Pitcairn Image
The Radeon R7 265 is a mid-range graphics card by AMD, launched in February 2014. Built on the 28 nm process, and based on the Pitcairn graphics processor, in its Pitcairn PRO variant, the card supports DirectX 12.0. The Pitcairn graphics processor is an average sized chip with a die area of 212 mm² and 2,800 million transistors. Unlike the fully unlocked Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition, which uses the same GPU but has all 1280 shaders enabled, AMD has disabled some shading units on the Radeon R7 265 to reach the product's target shader count. It features 1024 shading units, 64 texture mapping units and 32 ROPs. AMD has placed 2,048 MB GDDR5 memory on the card, which are connected using a 256-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 900 MHz, which can be boosted up to 925 MHz, memory is running at 1400 MHz.
We recommend the AMD Radeon R7 265 for gaming with highest details at resolutions up to, and including, 1920x1080.
Being a dual-slot card, the AMD Radeon R7 265 draws power from 1x 6-pin power connectors, with power draw rated at 150 W maximum. Display outputs include: 2x DVI, 1x HDMI, 1x DisplayPort. Radeon R7 265 is connected to the rest of the system using a PCIe 3.0 x16 interface. The card measures 210 mm in length, and features a dual-slot cooling solution. Its price at launch was 149 US Dollars.
