The Radeon R7 265 fits into AMD's line-up between the R7 260X and R9 270. The R7 265 uses a cut-down 'Curacao' GPU which we've seen used for the R9 270 and R9 270X. Curacao is a GCN 1.0 part, so it supports AMD's Mantle API, CrossFire technology and Eyefinity, however it doesn't support TrueAudio.

Yet we have a hard time recommending the GTX 750 Ti over the R7 265 as the Radeon offers 13% more performance (on average) and over 20% in games such as Battlefield 4. AMD's solution consumed 32% more power than Nvidia's, though in the games we tested during that scenario the R7 265 was also 24% faster...

Short and to the point then, this is one of my favorite kind of articles to write. By reducing Radeon R7 260X prices along with introducing the Radeon R7 265 and Radeon R7 260, AMD will be increasing their performance in this entire segment to the...

Today we are taking the brand new GeForce GTX 750 Ti and putting it head to head with the recently released Radeon R7 265. As luck would have it both GPU’s are set to occupy the affordable $150 price bracket, so which deserves your money? Read on to...

The AMD Radeon R7 265 2GB brings more performance to the table for $149 and should be of interest to gamers running a single 1920 x 1080 display.

I'm happy to see great 1080p performance pushed even further down under $200. If AMD does end up delivering the powerful Radeon R7 265 at $150 by the end of February, next month's Best Gaming Graphics Cards For The Money column should be an interesting one.

For the money, both cards offer decent bang for the buck, but the R7 265’s more powerful GPU and wider memory bus make it the more attractive option in our opinion. If you can muster the additional $30, it’s absolutely worth the investment, assuming the delta remains $30 by the time cards go on sale.

We'd recommend the R7-265 to the casual gamers with a monitor resolution of 1920x1080/1200 as absolute maximum. With the extremely modern games that are heavy on the GPU we do advise to look at something a hint stronger. For the casual gamer we can definitely recommend the product, and yeah... we are curious how the R7-265 will hold ground price/performance wise to the upcoming GeForce GTX 750 series from NVIDIA.

If AMD had the ability to release these cards NOW then I think this launch would have been considered pretty much flawless. As it stands, NVIDIA has a whole lot of time to plan and react with either new products of its own (or even just price adjustments).

AMD tells us that they expect the Radeon R7 265 to retail at around $150, which is a very competitive price for the card's performance. You should definitely consider the R7 265 if you are looking for the best bang per buck; I seriously doubt NVIDIA's upcoming cards can compete in that metric (history tells us so).

The Radeon R7 265's introduction, for now, puts AMD in a strong position in the £100-£120 category. Sapphire's implementation of the card is thoroughly decent, mating the GPU to a proven cooler that's both cool and quiet.

Our tests show that the Radeon R7 265 has the advantage over Nvidia's GeForce GTX 650 Ti boost in virtually all situations and performs roughly equal to Nvidia's GeForce GTX 660. Considering the fact that on average, GTX 660 cards cost € 170, it's safe to say that the Radeon R7 265 offers an excellent good price/performance ratio, assuming that the card will actually retail at about € 130 later this month.

Over the past years, AMD has frequently used a higher end GPU in order to offer significantly better performance at a lower price point. This time, the manufacturer does it again, by using the R7 270 and 270X's Pitcairn chip to create a model that will...

AMD targeted NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost with the Radeon R7 265 and we’d have to say they pretty much hit the bull’s-eye. In some tests the Radeon R7 265 is faster, in others the GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost pulls ahead, and in others the two...

Averaging the benchmark results across the tests we ran today, we get the following aggregate results. AMD's Radeon HD 7850 serves as our 100% baseline. At least from a performance standpoint, the Radeon R7 265 is impressive-looking. It's a little...

Nothing is really new with the R7-265 except maybe it's price performance ratio, which is really good all by itself. See, the AMD Radeon R7 265 will be available late February starting at a price of $149 USD or 109 EUR + VAT. Make no mistake, this card...

Meanwhile, anyone that wants an efficient, HTPC or SFF focused GPU should look to the TrueAudio-equipped, very affordable R7 260X. The R7 265 is nonetheless very appealing for anyone who doesn't want to step up to the R9-series or finds the other R7 offerings underpowered so it should do well provided we actually see it hit $149.

Можно с большой долей уверенности сказать, что видеокарта Radeon R7 265 на данный момент находится в достаточно узкой нише существующей на данный момент линейке продуктов от компании AMD. В этом плане она в чем-то похожа и на видеокарты от NVIDIA.Словом,...
