AMD Radeon R7 A265: specs and benchmarks

AMD Radeon R7 A265

Summary

AMD started Radeon R7 A265 sales 9 January 2014. This is GCN 1.0 architecture desktop card based on 28 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 2 GB of DDR3 memory clocked at 1.8 GHz are supplied, and together with 128 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 28.8 GB / s.

Compatibility-wise, this is card attached via PCIe 3.0 x8 interface.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 1.90 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti.
