Sapphire’s R7 250 Ultimate graphics card is unlike most other R7 250’s out there. The thing that most people will notice is that it is 100% passively cooled. This means that there are no fans at all so it will be 100% silent during operation. This makes it the perfect card for those building a silent PC or home theater PC. On top of that this card is actually based on the “Cape Verde” GPU rather than the “Oland” GPU that most R7 250’s are based on. So you get 512 shader units and faster GDDR5 memory. Let’s see what this passively cooled card is all about!
Today AMD is officially launching their Radeon R7 250X Graphics Card. This will be more of an entry-level card and will retail for only $99. The R7 250X will bridge the gap between the R7 250 and R7 260 and will serve as a PR counter for NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 750 Ti and GTX 750.
