Sapphire R7 265 Dual X Graphics Card review

Rating: 9.0.

Today AMD release their new R7 265 graphics card which they claim is an outstanding performer at 1080p resolution. The R7 265 is set to supplement the more expensive R9 270 which was designed to replace the last generation HD7870. The R7 265 looks set to replace the HD7850, which has proven so successful that it is still being sold – 2 years after release. Rather than focus on a reference board for our review we look at a custom Sapphire R7 265 with Dual X cooling system.

The AMD R7 265 features 2GB of GDDR5 memory which is connected via a 256 bit memory interface. It has 1,024 stream processors with the engine clock set to run at up to 925mhz.

The reference card features a single fan cooling system, but fortunately the version we review today has received some special treatment from Sapphire, featuring two large fans and thick copper heatpipes.
