AMD launches budget R7 250X graphics card

AMD has launched a new graphics card aimed at budget gamers.

The Radeon R7 250X is priced at $99 (£60), and is a rebranded version of the existing Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition card.

Like the 7770 GHZ Edition, the card features 640 steam processors, 40 texture units, a core clock speed of 1,000MHz, one or 2GB of VRAM memory and runs on the Cape Verde GPU.

Compared to the existing 250 card, which is available for $89 (£54), the 250X is expected to deliver a performance increase of around 20 to 30 per cent.

The main competition it will see from AMD rival Nvidia is like to be the equally-budget GeForce GTX 650 graphics card, which costs a little more than the 250X.

The 250X is available now in the US. Exact UK pricing and release date details are yet to be revealed.
