Sapphire announces R7 265 Dual-X graphics card

Written by Slobodan Simic

Same clocks, better cooler

Sapphire has released a new R7 265 graphics card, the Sapphire R7 265 Dual-X, which will feature the new and improved Dual-X cooler.

Based on the AMD 28nm Curacao GPU, the R7 265 packs 1024 Stream Processors, 64 TMUs, 32 ROPs, and comes with 2GB of GDDR5 memory paired up with a 256-bit memory interface. It is practically the same as the previously available Radeon HD 7850 graphics card so it makes sense for partners to bring out same designs which we have seen on the HD 7850, as it is the case with the new Sapphire R7 265 Dual-X.

Apparently, Sapphire stuck to reference GPU clocks of 900MHz base and 925MHz Boost, while the 2GB of GDDR5 memory ended up clocked at 5600MHz. It comes with two DVI, HDMI and DisplayPort outputs and should provide much lower temeperatures thanks to Sapphire's Dual-X cooler with aerofoil fans and graduated heatpipes.

Unfortunately, Sapphire did not shed any light regarding the price or the precise availability date.
