Today we're focusing on two cards from HIS, a company we're very familiar with, having seen many of their products in the past couple of generations in AMD cards. HIS typically produces cards with custom coolers and aggressive factory overclocks, but these two are a bit different. The R7 260X and R7 250X are budget-oriented cards for those with modest budgets and looking for some affordable gaming, and perhaps even something suitable for an HTPC setup.
Introduction AMD’s current 7000 generation cards have matured rather nicely for the most part, and now we’re looking at the latest addition to the lineup, with the Radeon HD 7790. It’s a more budget-oriented card, positioned against Nvidia’s GTX 650 Ti which hasn’t had much competition of late. It seems AMD has designed this card purposely to compete both in performance and price in the $150 bracket, targeted at mainstream consumers who want some moderate gaming without breaking the bank. Specifically we’re examining the Gigabyte HD 7790. It comes with a sleek little cooler and a factory overclock. What’s particularly enticing is this Gigabyte card qualifies for an AMD promotional offer that tosses in an A+ gaming title in Bioshock Infinite worth $60 into the package. That sounds like a great deal, even if the performance isn’t terribly groundshaking as a more budget-oriented card. Let’s take a closer look at the Gigabyte HD 7790 and see how it fares.
