Sapphire Technologies has introduced a new entry-level graphics card designed for mini-ITX systems. The new Sapphire Nitro R7 360 is powered by “Bonaire” graphics processing unit and may be used as an inexpensive upgrade for older PCs or building of home-theater personal computers (HTPCs).
The Sapphire Nitro R7 360 graphics adapter is based on the “Bonaire” graphics processing unit with 768 stream processors, 48 texture units, 16 raster operations pipelines and 128-bit memory controller. The GPU uses AMD’s GCN 1.1 architecture and supports DirectX 12 application programming interface, AMD TrueAudio technology and advanced video processing capabilities. The graphics board carries 2GB of GDDR5 memory operating at 6.5GHz.
The Sapphire Nitro R7 360 graphics adapter sports DVI-I, HDMI 1.4 and DisplayPort 1.2 outputs. The card is equipped with a simple dual-slot cooling system and is only 170mm long.
The new graphics card from Sapphire is already available for around £90.

KitGuru Says: The Sapphire Nitro R7 360 graphics adapter was not designed to run demanding video games. It will hardly deliver decent performance in AAA titles, but if you are building a small general-purpose PC with rich multimedia capabilities, the new graphics board from Sapphire is a thing to consider.
