New AMD Radeon R7 260 GPU Shipping Mid-January


AMD today announced the AMD Radeon R7 260, an entry-level GPUpositioned to fill in the gap between the Radeon 260X and 250 models.

The AMD Radeon R7 260 graphics card is based on AMD's Graphics Core Next (GCN) architecture and supports Mantle, AMD's technology aimed at enabling game developers to design games which can harness the GCN-powered cores of PCs and game consoles.

Compared to the R7 260X, which is a fully enabled Bonaire part, the R7 260 features two less CUs, bringing the SP count down to 768 SPs and the texture unit count down to 48. Clockspeeds have also been decreased, with 260 topping out at 1GHz for the GPU clock and 6GHz for the memory clock. This puts theoretical performance at around 80% of 260X in GPU-intensive applications and 92% in memory-intensive applications.

The new card also features 1GB of VRAM versus 2GB on the 260X.

AMD's official specifications state that power consumption for 260 is 95W, down from 115W on 260X.

The 260 will launch mid-January at an MSRP of $109, according to AMD. AT that price, it is expected to compete with NVIDIA's GTX 650 and GTX 650 Ti models.
