The R7 260X was introduced on 2013 as a budget gaming card, replacing the Radeon HD 7790, with a perfomance closer to the older HD 7850 when compared this card has a cutdown on the memory bus that may put it in problems when using any kind MSAA on 1080p. Supports DirectX 12 and Vulkan. This card still a great choice for budget gaming on Medium settings, its real perfomance is in between the GT 1030 GDDR5 and the GTX 1050 2GB.
