AMD officially releases new Radeon R7 265

Written by Slobodan Simic

Curacao based mainstream card

AMD has officially released its new Radeon R7 265 graphics card based on 28nm Curacao GPU, which should fill the gap between AMD's R7 260X and the R9 270 and also put a bit more pressure on Nvidia's upcoming mainstream Geforce GTX 750 series graphics cards based on Maxwell GPU architecture.

As rumored earlier, the Radeon R7 265 is based on AMD's 28nm Curacao GPU. It packs 1024 Stream Processors, 64 TMUs, 32 ROPs, and comes with 2GB of GDDR5 memory paired up with a 256-bit memory interface. In case you have not already noticed, the new R7 265 is quite similar to the previously available Radeon HD 7850 graphics card.

According to AMD, the new Radeon R7 265 will have a US $149.99 price tag puts it between the US $139 R7 260X and the US $179 priced R9 270. In order to position the mainstream graphics card lineup a bit better, it appears that AMD has also dropped the price of the R7 260X down to US $119.99 which gives it additional breathing room and also makes the new R7 265 a bit more interesting.

Unfortunately for AMD, Nvidia is not sitting idle either and its upcoming GTX 750 series graphics cards based on the new Maxwell architecture will put a lot of pressure on AMD's mainstream lineup.
