AMD R7-260 Mid Range Graphics Card Spotted

/ 7 years ago


WCCFTech reports that AMD’s mid-range R7-260 graphics card has been spotted. The card looks pretty unique by AMD standards and isn’t really like anything we’ve seen before in terms of a reference design cooler.amd_r7_260_curacao_pro_2

The internal cooling solution of a coiled copper heatpipe interlaced with aluminium fins with a central fan blowing air through is very similar to what we’ve seen on a lot of HD 7790s including one we reviewed from Club3D. The outer shroud is pretty unique and is a design AMD hasn’t really used before, it boasts a load of ventilation inlets for improved airflow. Considering this card will probably be based on a rehashed HD 7850 or HD 7790 GPU it seems likely the new outer shroud design has been prepared to make the card seem new and different from existing HD 7000 series cards.
