Critics Reviews

Radeon-based stock video cards are usually some variation on AMD's red-and-black theme, and PowerColor's version of the Radeon R7 250X we're looking at here doesn't stray too far from that tradition.
The Radeon R7 250 was an entry-level graphics card by AMD, launched in October 2013. Built on the 28 nm process, and based on the Oland graphics processor, in its Oland XT variant, the card supports DirectX 12.0.
