Radeon R7 260X vs Radeon R7 360 specs and performance

According to the hardwareDB Benchmark, the Radeon R7 260X GPU is faster than the Radeon R7 360 in gaming.

Our database shows that the Radeon R7 260X has a slightly higher core clock speed. The core clock speed (or base speed) is the frequency at which the GPU core runs. This metric makes sense when comparing GPUs of a similar architecture or generation.

Furthermore, the spec sheet for both these GPUs show that they both have the same amount of memory at 2 GiB. If you're planning at playing games at high resolutions with high-quality textures, you will need a lot of memory.

In addition, the Radeon R7 360 has a slightly lower TDP at 100 W when compared to the Radeon R7 260X at 115 W. Heat output doesn't match power consumption directly but, it's a good estimate.

According to the results of the hardwareDB benchmark utility, the Radeon R7 260X is faster than the Radeon R7 360.
