XFX R7 250 Review

XFX R7 250 Ghost 2.0 Testing:

Temperature testing will be accomplished by loading the video card to 100% using Unigine's Heaven Benchmark Version 4.0, with MSI's Afterburner overclocking utility for temperature monitoring. I will be using a resolution of 1920x1080 using 8xAA and a five-run sequence to run the test, ensuring that the maximum thermal threshold is reached. The fan speed will be left in the control of the driver package and video card's BIOS for the stock load test, with the fan moved to 100% to see the best possible cooling scenario for the overclocked load test. The idle test will involve a 20-minute cooldown, with the fan speeds left on automatic in the stock speed testing and bumped up to 100% when running overclocked.

 

Settings

  • Monitoring with MSI Afterburner
  • Unigine Heaven 4.0 1920x1080 8x AA
  • 5-run sequence
  • 20-minute idle duration
  • Temperature measured in degrees Celsius

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
 

 

 

The R7 250 had some of the best temperatures except at stock load, where the fan controlled itself with a less aggressive increase. At idle both stock and overclocked it beat out the other cards by far! With the fan speed automatically set the noise was minimal — quieter than the rest of the test bed. The R7 240 is fanless, but even overclocked load temperatures were well within the safe zone. With these temperatures it could be possible to overclock further with a volt-mod!
