AMD Radeon R7 250X

It appears that AMD didn’t really wait with the official announcement of R7 250X we leaked few days ago.

Today the R7 250X has been officially added to the R200 series lineup. Card is positioned against GeForce GTX 650, which will be replaced by GTX 750 next week. AMD R7 250X will retail at $100 which is a good price, considering we are looking at Radeon HD 7770 GHz rebrand.

The R7 250X packs 640 Stream Processors, 40 TMUs and 16 ROPs. Reference models will ship with a clock of 1 GHz. The R7 250X does not feature Boost clock. Card is equipped with 1GB memory by default, but it will also be available with 2GB. The memory runs at 4.5 GHz through 128b interface.

I wouldn’t call this card a response to upcoming Maxwell cards. Especially considering the power consumption. Just look at the specs below and compare 260 and 250X, both with the same TDP. In these terms it’s power hungry card, but at least, it’s considerably faster than GTX 650.
