I am still looking for something to replace my current card with - XFX HD-645X-ZQH2 Radeon HD 6450 1GB 64-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Ready Video Card but it looks like it can't be much taller than 4".
Also what is Newegg policy on returning open/tested items - do you get al lmoney back or only partial?
Also if the card says - Power Connector
2 x 6 Pin
Does it require two connectors for power? How do you verify what power is required for the Video card?
"Dang! You got shocks, pegs... lucky! You ever take it off any sweet jumps? "
Assuming you get the equal to an HD series I would not expect it to perform any different. Something that is 7790 level or higher should be fine.
The name change is just a rebadge. There is little reason (none actually) to think it would not work as good as the older HD series it replaces.
Thanks. You know where a guy could find a cross reference chart? And I don't think it's a rebadge based on Newegg spec sheets. The # of stream processors and memory clocks look different. Does this affect performance or maybe allow to step down to a lower end card to get same MadVR capabilities? I don't know.
the Radeon R7 260X isn't based on any new silicon. It has quite a few things in common with the Radeon HD 7790 launched just this March, but differs from the HD 7790 by running higher clock speeds and double the standard memory amount
