Powercolor announces R9/R7 series graphics cards

by on08 October 2013


A total of five different SKUs

As expected considering that AMD has finally lifted the NDA veil from at least a part of its Radeon R9 and R7 series lineup, Powercolor has announced its own lineup with a total of five different SKUs including R9 280X, R9 270X OC, TurboDuo R7 260X OC, R7 250 OC and R7 240 OC.

Based on custom designs, the R9 sereis include two SKUs, the R9 280X and the R9 270X OC. The R9 280X works at 850MHz base and 1000MHz Boost GPU clocks and features Powercolor's own custom cooler that should bring 10 percent lower temeperatures and should be up to 15 percent quieter thanks to its ultra-big 92mm fans and unique SSU-shape heatpipe design. The R9 270X OC works at 1030MHz base and 1080MHz Boost GPU clocks as well as a dual-slot single fan cooler that should keep it well below reference design in terms of temperatures and noise.

The R7 260X is quite an interesting graphics card considering it features Powercolor's TurboDuo cooling solution with dual-slot double fan design. This one works at 1160MHz GPU clock and comes with 2GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 6.6GHz and paried up with a 128-bit memory interface.

Powercolor also announced two overclocked R7 250 and R7 240 graphics cards. The R7 250 OC works at 1100MHz base and 1150MHz boost GPU clocks while 1GB of GDDR5 memory ended up clocked at 4.6GHz. The Powercolor R7 240 OC works at 750MHz base and 800MHz boost GPU clocks and packs 2GB of DDR3 memory clocked at 1800MHz.

Powercolor definitely has some interesting graphics cards and we will definitely like to see how well those coolers perform. You can check out Powercolor's full lineup here.
