    Default Sapphire R7 250 Ultimate Review

    Introduction: With the release of a new generation of graphics cards there can be so much fan-fare and attention paid to the higher end offerings that lower end models get overlooked. System enthusiasts and hardcore gamers rarely even think of the models that can’t crank out maximum FPS or look awesome in a huge water cooled system. Some may be surprised to know there are GPUs for everyday people and entry level gaming. Shocking isn’t it? The vast majority of GPUs are of the integrated type, sold within the CPU/APU. Research has shown 50% of these IGP (Integrated Graphics Processors) go unused in favor of more robust discrete solutions. That is what we will be looking into today, a discrete solution that can offer more graphical prowess than any integrated solution. Its other defining characteristic is that it can do this in total silence. We are referring to the Sapphire R7 250 Ultimate silent GPU. Specs: Display Support 3 x Maximum Display Monitor(s) support Output 1 x HDMI (with 3D) 1 x DisplayPort 1.2 1 x Dual-Link DVI-I GPU 800 MHz Core Clock 28 nm Chip 512 x Stream Processors Video Memory 1024 MB Size 128 -bit GDDR5 4.5 MHz Effective Dimension 185(L)X120(W)X50(H) mm Size. 2 x slot Software Driver CD * Innovation, performance and value for money have always made SAPPHIRE the supplier of choice for enthusiast graphics. SAPPHIRE was the first company to introduce fanless silent cooling solutions based on heatpipe technology and continues to offer this technology in its ULTIMATE series. It was again first to introduce the revolutionary Vapor Chamber Technology to graphics cards, giving quieter and more efficient cooling to high performance graphics products with its award winning Vapor-X product lines. Product variations such as the SAPPHIRE TOXIC Editions deliver users higher performance straight out of the box, and give enthusiasts greater opportunities for performance tuning.
