• Connect a range of monitors to the graphics card with DisplayPort, DVI-D, DVI-I and HDMI ports
• Using a DisplayPort MST hub, connect up to six monitors for improved productivity and gaming experience, with a maximum resolution of 4,096 x 2,160 pixels on each
• AMD CrossFire technology support allows you to connect another graphics card for a performance boost
• Full-sized card that takes up two expansion case slots, so please check your case and motherboard dimensions first
• Two optimised fans help to keep your card cool
• Manufacturer part number: R7360-OC-2GD5-V2Will this graphics card be the right one for me?
If you’re looking for a budget friendly card that will allow you to play many games at 1080p resolution, then this card will be hard to overlook. It fits into the PCI Express (PCIe) x16 slot on your motherboard and has been based on AMD’s Radeon R7 360 chipset. The graphics processing unit (GPU) can achieve speeds of up to 1090MHz, when the overclock mode is selected in the supplied GPU Tweak II software. In addition to this the 2GB of video memory (VRAM) runs at speeds of 6,000MHz, which allows you to watch content at a maximum resolution of 4,096 x 2,160 pixels.
What is the performance like on this card?
Since the GPU can achieve clock speeds of up to 1090MHz and the 2GB of GDDR5 VRAM runs at a clock speed of 6,000MHz, you are able to play most games on high texture settings at 1080p (1,920 x 1,080 pixels). Although some graphically intensive games may require you to reduce settings to a medium level. You can increase performance even further with an additional R7 360, with this card supporting two-way Crossfire (provided your motherboard supports it too).
What monitors can I connect to this card?
Connecting a variety of new or old monitors to this graphics card is possible with its DisplayPort, DVI-D, DVI-I and HDMI ports. If you’re looking to connect a VGA monitor to this graphics card you can through the use of a DVI-I female to VGA male adapter (for example, Order Code: A60QG). You are able to use six monitors simultaneously with this graphics card thanks to AMD’s Eyefinity™ technology. There is a limit of two non-DisplayPort connected monitors, with the rest needing to be connected through DisplayPort. In order to obtain more than three screens you may need to daisy chain multiple DisplayPort capable monitors or use a DisplayPort MST-enabled hub. Using the single large surface (SLS) mode, you are able to game as if these monitors were one screen. The monitors do not have to be the same resolution, however under SLS the resolution of your monitors will all be set to the lowest one.
Another great feature that is available is AMD’s FreeSync technology. Through the use of a compatible FreeSync monitor the technology synchronises the refresh rate of the monitor to the card. This results in reduced input latency and reduced or fully eliminated stuttering/juddering/tearing when you are gaming or watching a video, for smooth gameplay and playback. Additionally, you can now play, watch and create in 3D. AMD’s HD3D technology means you can get into the exiting world of 3D entertainment, as long as you are using 3D capable monitor and glasses.
What other AMD specific technologies are available with this card?
Embedded into this graphics card is AMD’s TrueAudio technology. This technology introduces a dedicated digital signal processor (DSP) into the GPU, leading to audio processing being able to be done in hardware instead of software. With a game that makes use of this technology, this provides you with enchanting lifelike soundscapes since a multiple number of sounds in the game can be generated at once.
How is this cooled and is overclocking software included?
This graphics card is kept cool by two optimised fans, which provide great airflow while keeping quiet. Manufactured using auto-extreme technology (a 100% automated production process) and with Super Alloy Power II components, you are provided with a card that has improved performance and longevity.
Supplied with this graphics card is GPU Tweak II and its intuitive user interface, making adjustments to your card (overclocking) is easier. You can modify clock speeds, voltages, fan performance and more. Since overclocking can be an intimidating task the program has a one click Gaming Booster function, which maximises performance by removing redundant processes and allocating all available resources automatically. Integration with XSplit Gamecaster means you can easily stream or record your gameplay through an in-game overlay.
