Sapphire R7 250 Ultimate Review
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.
