The R7 260 GPU (GCN, 28 nm) with 768 CUDA cores runs at 1000 MHz. It is accompanied by 1 GB of GDDR5 memory (128-bit bus) that operates at 1500 MHz/ 6000 MHz typical/effective frequency.

This adapter receives power through one 6-contact connector. Connectivity with PC monitors is realized due to three video ports: DisplayPort, HDMI and DVI-I. GPU and memory modules are cooled down by the forces of iCooler. It is not differentiated by an offbeat design; it consists of an aluminum heatsink and one low-profile fan.

Still, it offers acoustic convenience while fulfilling standard tasks: the maximal noise level does not exceed the limit of 28 dB. A supplementary aluminum heatspreader can be found in power supply section.
