AMD Announces HD 7770 GHz Edition Rebrand, The Radeon R7 250X
Peter Donnell / 3 years ago
While not exactly a new card for AMD, the R7 250X have been officially revealed. The new card, I mean old card, is a the HD 7770 GHz Edition and has been given a new name to bring it back to market to fill the gap between the current R7 250 and the R7 260.
The card is based on the Cape Verde hardware and features 640 stream processors, 40 texture unites, 16 ROPs and a GPU clock speed of 1000MHz. The card will also be available in both 1GB and 2GB formats via a 128-bit bus, although we do not know what type of memory has been used, we can only assume GDDR5 for the 1GB and DDR3 for the 2GB in a bid to keep costs as low as possible.
The R7 250X will hit the market later this week for around $99, putting is in the firing line of the Nvidia GTX 650 and it should give AMD a little bit of a performance lead in this end of the budget market.
Thank you Fudzilla for providing us with this information.
