Conclusion

Simply put, the Diamond R7 250 Boost does what it was intended to do. It offers capable gaming for low to mid-range gaming systems. While we didn’t have the low range cards to compare it with directly, we can’t say that this card is horrible or doesn’t perform very well. While the FPS were a bit lower, we noticed from FireStrike that the physics on this particular GPU are amazing although lacking in frame-rate.

Although this isn’t your most powerful graphics card, and wouldn’t do justice trying to play the top of the line games currently out today, for a low to mid range APU system or even running in crossfire with an A6/8/10 APU, this would boost the graphics. At the time of this review, we found it cheapest at newegg.com for $89.99 with a $10 mail in rebate + $5.39 shipping and a 5 year manufacturers warranty. It falls into a tough segment when compared to similarly priced GPUs. The Diamond R7 250 Boost earns the PureOverclock Great Value Award.
