Introduction, Specifications and Packaging

HIS R7 250 iCooler Boost Clock Front

When it comes to gaming on a strict budget there are a tonne of choices: AMD’s R7 240, R7 250 and R7 250X all fall beneath the $100 price point while Nvidia’s GT 630 and GT 640 graphics cards also fall beneath the $100 level. If discrete graphics cards aren’t your thing then you can also get AMD’s A10-7850K APU which effectively has R7 250 level graphics, or the A10-7700K and A8-7600 which are somewhere between the R7 240 and R7 250 in terms of their performance. Today we are looking at the AMD R7 250 and more specifically HIS Digital’s version of it. It comes in at reference pricing of $90 and it opts for reference clock speeds but you do get a custom cooler and HIS Digital tell us there is great overclocking potential to be had on their R7 250 iCooler Boost Clock 1GB GDDR5 graphics card.

Specifications Analysis

As we mentioned this graphics card runs with reference speeds and is also available in 2GB DDR3 or 1GB GDDR5 options. We’re testing the 1GB GDDR5 option today and I would encourage most people to also choose this option as it gives much faster speeds in the vast majority of games.

The packaging comes emblazoned with HIS Digital’s trophic “excalibur sword” and points out HIS Digital’s iCooler cooling solution which they claim produces less than 28 dB of noise.

The back details more of the features of this graphics card, most of which are just general AMD features like PowerTune and App Acceleration.

Included with our sample of this graphics card was just the card itself and a piece of documentation. According to HIS Digital’s website you should expect a driver CD and installation guide to be included in the retail product.
