and me makes it difficult to really know what percentage of OC'm doing my card starting from 1050 - 1500. The solution would be to create another page for this card with x1dvi specifications or edit this page.


On the other hand guys, hace no doubt. AMD has updated its website and all 200-series cards will support fully directx12

Hi. I'm confused. my graphics card comes standard with 1050 and 1500 cores. My model is a 2GB Sapphire x1dvi and I looked at the official website of AMD and that data is correct. I do not understand the specifications set in this page unless x2dvi for the model in which case there would be the same card profile x1dvi. I think another reason may be that 1150 and 1650 are actually put here and OC paragraph boost. If so, the factory specifications are incorrect.

It will be a superb step up from your apu generated graphics, you will see big improvment. also your corsair cx500 will handle it with ease, even leaving you some rome for future upgrades.

Okay, so I'm planning to get either this or GTX 750 ti. With Mantle tho, do you guys think r7 260x is more worth it even tho it's more power hungry than 750 ti?
