According to a report from Videocardz.com, which managed to snag a picture of a new Sapphire graphics card, AMD is working on the Radeon R7 250X graphics card in order to fill the gap between the Radeon R7 250 and the Radeon R7 260 graphics cards. According to our sources, the new R7 250X graphics card is scheduled for launch in March, most likely sometime around Cebit.
According to a report, the new R7 250X graphics card is based on the 28nm Oland GPU and should pack 640 Stream Processors, 40 TMUs and 16 ROPs. It should be available with 1GB and 2GB of memory and feature a 128-bit memory interface.
If you take a look at the specs, it is quite easy to guess that this is merely a Radeon HD 7770 rebrand, which we managed to confirm with our sources. This is also the sole reason for which we have pictures of these graphics cards so early before the launch.
According to Videocardz.com, the "new" R7 250X should end up with a GPU clock of around 1GHz while memory should be clocked at 4.5GHz, which is also in line with most Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition graphics cards currently selling on the market.
We will most likely see these graphics cards with a similar price tag of around €90.
