AMD Radeon R7 250E: specs and benchmarks
AMD started Radeon R7 250E sales 20 December 2013 at a recommended price of $109 . This is a GCN 1.0 architecture desktop card based on 28 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 1 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 4.5 GHz are supplied, and together with 128 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 72 GB/s.
Compatibility-wise, this is single-slot card attached via PCIe 3.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 168 mm. No additional power connector is required, and power consumption is at 55 Watt.
It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 4.27% of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090.
