Today we’ll be reviewing two entry level Radeon R7 series graphics cards from ASUS, the ASUS Radeon R7 240 & R7 250. In terms of specs, both the ASUS Radeon R7 240 và Radeon R7 250 are equipped with 28nm Ol& GPUs with a choice between the Radeon R7 250 containing a fully unlocked Oland GPU (aka Oland XT) paired with faster GDDR5 memory, or the Radeon R7 240 with a slightly neutered Oland GPU (aka Ol& Pro) paired with slower DDR3 memory.

With that said, let’s take a closer look!

A Closer Look at theASUS Radeon R7 240

*

Here’s a look at the packaging for the ASUS Radeon R7 240.

*

Included we get some documentation, a driver disk, two low protệp tin adapters (one for card VGA và one for DVI/HDXiaoMI, allowing both lớn be used simultaneously with two PCIe slots), và the ASUS Radeon R7 240 itself.

*
*

Here’s a closer look at the ASUS Radeon R7 240.Here we can see that the thẻ is a fairly small single slot, low protệp tin design. Cooling is handled by a single heatsink with a fairly small 37milimet bạn mounted on the heatsink. Given that the Radeon R7 240 has a TDP of only 30w, no external power is needed.

*

Video outputs include the usual card VGA, HDXiaoMI & DVI. Unfortunately although a Dual Link DVI port is included, resolutions above 1920×1200 (high-resolution IPS, IGZO, etc. displays) are not supported.

*
*

Removing the heatsink assembly, we can take a closer look at the components onboard the card.

*
*

The ASUS Radeon R7 240 is powered by AMD’s 28nm Olvà Pro GPU, which is a neutered version of the full Olvà XT GPU used on the R7 250. With the Ol& Pro (aka R7 240), AMD has disabled one of the Computer Units giving the GPU access khổng lồ 3đôi mươi stream processors, 8 ROPs và trăng tròn TMUs.

Onboard memory is powered by eight Nanya NT5CB128M16HP-EK chips making up a total of 2GB of DDR3 running off a 128-bit memory interface.

Here’s a look at the packaging for the ASUS Radeon R7 250.

*

The ASUS Radeon R7 250 is quite light on accessories with only some documentation & the graphics thẻ included in the packaging.

*
*

Here’s a closer look at the ASUS Radeon R7 250.We’ve sầu got a full sized single slot PCIe card this time around with a slightly larger heatsink sporting a 72milimet bạn. Like the ASUS Radeon R7 240, the R7 250 with a TDPhường. of only 65w does not require external power.

*

Video outputs include the usual đồ họa, HDMI & DVI. Unfortunately although a Dual Link DVI port is included, resolutions above 1920×1200 (high-resolution IPS, IGZO, etc. displays) are not supported.

The ASUS Radeon R7 250 is powered by AMD’s 28nm Oland XT GPU, which is the fully unlocked version of the Ol& GPU. The GPU contains a total of 6 Compute Units giving the GPU access to lớn 384 stream processors, 8 ROPs và 24 TMUs.

Onboard memory is powered by four Elpidomain authority W2032BBBG-6A-F chips making up a total of 1GB of GDDR5 running off a 128-bit memory interface.

nguồn Consumption

For power consumption testing, we’ll be measuring full system power while idle along with full system power with the graphics thẻ running at full load using Furmark. All power consumption measurements will be measured with the Extech 380801 Power nguồn Analyzer.

*

Temperature Testing

For temperature testing, we’ll be measuring both graphics thẻ temperatures when the graphics card is idle for 5 minutes after a cold boot. Load temperatures are taken after a full 30 minute burn using Furmark.

While some of you aren’t huge fans of Furmark as it creates an ultra heavy, unrealistic load on the graphics thẻ, we feel lượt thích it’s a more useful tool as it differentiates between graphics cards that have extremely well designed coolers & ones that simply have sầu cooling solutions that simply pass the thử nghiệm, if you will. Most games these days generally don’t create enough of a load/heat khổng lồ even exceed temperatures where the fans would spin up on most custom coolers so it’s difficult khổng lồ adequately rank cooling solutions without using a tool lượt thích Furmark.

ASUS Radeon R7 240, R7 250Conclusions

*
All right, so with benchmarks out of the way, let’s talk about some final thoughts here.

From an enthusiast point of view, performance on the ASUS Radeon R7 240 và R7 250 definitely doesn’t impress all that much. After all, you really can’t expect too much out of a sub-$100 graphics card. That said, it does run modern games… và it does it reasonably well at lower resolutions & lower quality settings so those looking for a cheap stop-gap solution before purchasing a new gaming system may find the R7 240 or R7 250 the perfect drop-in cards for the task.

The ASUS Radeon R7 240 can generally be found at around $70 and the ASUS Radeon R7 250 can generally be found at around $90, which makes it one of the few graphics cards on the market under $100. It also happens to lớn be one of the few graphics cards on the market that’s capable of running without any external power, which should be of great interest for those stuck with older, pre-built systems that don’t have external power & simply don’t have the CPU or GPU processing power for HD video clip decoding or light gaming.While those stuchồng in this type of scenario who still want khổng lồ bởi vì 1080p gaming with medium unique settings have the option of going with the newly introduced Nvidia GeForce GTX 750/750 Ti, it will come at a significantly higher price-point, which may be unnecessary for those simply looking khổng lồ play a bit of old school Counter Strike.

Overall, while the ASUS Radeon R7 240 & Radeon R7 250 isn’t anywhere near the most impressive sầu graphics thẻ we’ve seen to lớn date, it’s a hàng hóa that fills a necessary gap for those with older, mostly pre-built systems who aren’t necessarily heavy gamers, but need a cheap graphics thẻ for simple 1080p video clip playbachồng or light gaming. If that fits your description, definitely be sure to kiểm tra out what ASUS’s Radeon R7 series has to lớn offer.
