AMD Radeon R7 M260X: specs and benchmarks

AMD Radeon R7 M260X

Summary

AMD started Radeon R7 M260X sales 6 December 2015. This is GCN 1.0 architecture notebook card based on 28 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 4 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 1000 GHz are supplied, and together with 128 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 64 GB / s.

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

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 2.21 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA TITAN RTX.
