AMD Radeon R7 260X

Thanks to our GPU Benchmark, we have measured the AMD Radeon R7 260X as a bad gaming performer a score of 8%.

The Radeon R7 260X has 2 GiB of GDDR5 memory, with a total memory bandwidth of 101 GB/s. The memory bus has a width of 128 bits. When choosing a GPU, plan ahead and select a model with enough memory for your needs. High resolutions such as 4K require significantly more memory than 1080p as there is more data to display on the screen.

In terms of clock speed, the Radeon R7 260X GPU core runs at a frequency of 1100 MHz and if power and temperature permits, it can boost up to 1000 MHz. The clock runs at a speed called the clock speed. It dictates the number of updates per second that the GPU can process. Overclocking a chip, which means increasing the clock speed will improve the performance. However, thermals and power efficiency may be diminished.

As for rendering API support, the Radeon R7 260X supports up to DirectX 12. In addition, in cross-platform titles, OpenGL 4.4 features are supported. If your GPU is too old and doesn't support a newer API certain titles may not be playable.

Power and thermals for the AMD Radeon R7 260X are a TDP (Thermal Design Power) of 115 watts. This measures the amount of heat the GPU produces when running at 100%. This isn't a measure of power consumption, but it's a good estimate.
