First peek at retail Radeon R7 240 Series graphics cards
The AMD Radeon R7 240 and Radeon R7 250 Specifications
According to VR-Zone Radeon R7 Series will use Oland GPU. The R7 250 will be equipped with Oland XT and the R7 240 with Oland PRO. So far no details about this particular processor have emerged. It is slower than Bonaire XTX, but it could still be faster than Cape Verde. This could either mean that they have different GPU configuration. The Radeon R7 240 cards will be clocked lower than HD 7700 series (730 MHz with a boost clock of 780 MHz, yes, Boost Clock for the masses!).
HIS R7 240 iCooler
HIS has equipped one of their cards with the same cooler as on Radeon HD 7730. The iCooler is a one-and-half slot design with a single blue fan in the middle. There’s a small heat sink above the GPU. The Radeon R7 240 PCB is very similar to HD 7730′s, however it’s not the same. This card will be available in two memory variants: 1GB GDDR5 and 2GB DDR3. The first one is clocked at effective 4600 MHz, while the other is running at 1800 MHz. Both models will use 128-bit memory interface.
HIS R7 240 IceQ
On the contrary to iCooler models the IceQ will be dual-slot. It will use the same cooler on the HIS 6570 IceQ cooler (it’s exactly the same). In fact the only difference you will notice is the configuration of the display on the bracket (VGA – HDMI – DVI vs HDMI – VGA – DVI). Even though this card is using a more efficient cooling solution it’s clocked at the same speed as iCooler’s, also it’s just 2cm longer. The IceQ is also running at DDR3 1.8 Gbps.
HIS R7 250 Specifications
All HIS R7 250 graphics cards are clocked at 1000 MHz with a boost at 1050 MHz. The R7 250 will use Oland XT with more streaming processors, although the number is still unknown. The R7 250 will either use DDR5 or GDDR5 memory with the same clock speeds as R7 240s.
The launch date and the price were not revealed.
