In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon R7 260 are significantly better than the AMD FirePro V7800.

The Radeon R7 260 was released over three years more recently than the FirePro V7800, and so the Radeon R7 260 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the FirePro V7800 when running the latest games.

The Radeon R7 260 and the FirePro V7800 have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The FirePro V7800 has 32 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Radeon R7 260, which means that the memory performance of the FirePro V7800 is noticeably better than the Radeon R7 260.

The Radeon R7 260 has 768 Shader Processing Units and the FirePro V7800 has 1440. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon R7 260 is 653 and the actual shader performance of the FirePro V7800 is 655. The FirePro V7800 having 2 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Radeon R7 260 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The Radeon R7 260 requires 95 Watts to run and the FirePro V7800 requires 138 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the Radeon R7 260. The FirePro V7800 requires 43 Watts more than the Radeon R7 260 to run. The difference is significant enough that the FirePro V7800 may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the Radeon R7 260.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewRadeon R7 260 is a fast-middle-class graphics card based on the Second Revision of the GCN architecture. It packs a Core codenamed Bonaire PRO.
The Bonaire PRO is a cut-down version of the Bonaire XT Core used on Radeon HD 7790. It comes with 14 Compute Units and thus offers 768 Shader Processing Units, 48 TMUs and 16 ROPs. This, on a 128-bit memory interface of fast GDDR5. Compared to the Bonaire XT Core, it has support for DirectX 11.2 and has support for AMD's TrueAudio Technology.
Benchmarks indicate its performance is around 10% slower than Radeon HD 7790 and a little over that when taking Radeon R7 260X as a reference.
The card proves to be very inefficient seeing as it has a higher rated TDP board than Radeon HD 7790 and its release price of $109 makes Radeon HD 7850 a better option.
Ultra-fast performance, superb visual quality and massively parallel power in a single slot, high-end card. <r> The ATI FirePro V7800 is ideally suited for professionals who work on complex models and visual effects and need to meet the requirements of demanding visualization jobs. <r> The ATI FirePro V7800 features three independent video outputs (two DisplayPort and one dual-link DVI) with ATI Eyefinity technology and less than 150W max board power in a single slot.
