Club 3D has announced its Radeon R7 265 royalQueen graphics card, bridging the gap between the Radeon R7 and R9 series.
Offering 1024 stream processors, the new PokerSeries card runs at a core clock speed of 925MHz, with 2048MB of GDDR5 memory at 5600MHz DDR, and a 256-bit memory bus. Integrating a CoolStream cooler that features a large heatsink and copper heatpipes for optimal cooling capacity at minimum noise level, it uses the AMD GCN architecture enabling the latest DX11.2 graphics features, and supports Mantle, the new low level API which lets developers talk directly to the GPU core.
The card also allows the usage of a 4K monitor, or combination of multiple HD monitors in an Eyefinity setup. Moreover, with the use of a Club 3D MST (Multi Stream Transmission) Hub, it is Eyefinity 5 capable.
The Club 3D R7 265 royalQueen graphics card is retailing at US$149, priced just in-between the previous generation NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 and GeForce GTX 650 Ti graphics cards. At the same time, the new Radeon R7 265 GPU may be AMD's riposte to rumored NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti GPU.
