TPU spreads news that AMD is preparing the Radeon R7 265, a new card to fend off NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 750. The R7 265 is based on a slimmed-down version of Curacao the chip that powers the R9 270 and R9 270X. Pricing is expected to be in the $149 to $159 range.
While the R9 270 series chips share a common core configuration with 1,280 stream processors each, the R7 265 will feature one that's similar to that of the Radeon HD 7850 from the previous generation, which means 1,024 stream processors, 64 TMUs, 32 ROPs, and a 256-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface. Its core clock speed is expected to be around 900 MHz, and memory at 4.80 GHz (GDDR5-effective), which works out to a memory bandwidth of 153.6 GB/s.
