AMD gave us an early peek at the R7 260X during its GPU14 press event in Hawaii. We now know much more about it. For example, we know that it improves upon the Radeon HD 7790 by raising the core and memory speeds and by doubling the amount of memory onboard. We know that it has some new features, and that, in a surprising twist, those same features were lying dormant inside the 7790’s GPU silicon all along. We even know that driver updates will soon enable all of those features in the 7790.
