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!
Gigabyte has taken off with an amendment project of its Radeon R7 250 OC graphics card. This one offers its 100 mm fan-heat sink and this same one was offered on the Radeon R7 240 OC graphics card.

The Hong Kong based company famous for its graphics cards will soon announce the release of the two new Radeon R7-250 Oland XT and R7-240 Oland Pro Graphic Cards with completely new GPUs designed by HIS. Being a varying model of the Cape Verde, the two graphic cards are much faster than the Radeon HD 7770 and Radeon HD 7750 but they still remain behind the Radeon HD 7790 which was based on the Bonaire XTX.
