In Game Benchmarks
As always it’s the in game performance that matters the most. Synthetic benchmarks are great for comparing cards, but what we want to know is how well with the card play your favorite games. I put the R7 260X through 12 different games all set to their highest settings while running at a resolution of 1920 x 1080. The ideal frames per second is 60 or more but anything over 30 is considered playable as well. Out of the 12 games, only three came in at over 60 FPS, this is to be expected on a budget video card. Even so only one game came in below 30 FPS and would require you to adjust the settings down slightly. The performance with our settings turned all the way up are actually still better than console performance both in image quality, FPS, and resolution. When you keep that in mind the R7 260X is the perfect card to get you playing todays latest games in a budget.
