Sapphire rolls out new R7 260X graphics card

Written by Slobodan Simic

TrueAudio, 3D and Eyefinity support

Trying to fill as many possible gaps in the latest Radeon R9 and R7 lineup, Sapphire has launched the R7 260X graphics card that will bring TrueAudio, 3D and Eyefinity support to mainstream market.

Based on AMD's Bonaire XT GPU, the R7 260X brings TrueAudio support and packs 896 stream processors and 2GB of GDDR5 memory paired up with a 128-bit memory interface. The R7 260X is pretty much the HD 7790 with a shiny new name and it is quite possible that TrueAudio was present on HD 7790 but just not "enabled".

Sapphire has decided to give its own R7 260X version a slight factory-overclock so while the reference one worked at 1100MHz for the GPU, the Sapphire R7 260X is clocked at 50MHz higher, 1150MHz. The 2GB of GDDR5 memory paired up with a 128-bit memory interface ended at 1650MHz (6.6GHz effective). It also features support for AMD Eyefinity via two DVI, DisplayPort 1.2 and HDMI 1.4a outputs.

Sapphire has paired up the new R7 260X with its own recognizable dual-slot cooler with center placed fan and it should be enough to keep the R7 260X cool without generating too much noise.

According to Sapphire, the new R7 260X should already be available in retail/e-tail but it did not announce the precise price for it. Earlier in October, AMD placed the US $139 price tag for the R7 260X.
