Sapphire R7 250 Ultimate Video Card Review

Sapphire’s R7 250 Ultimate graphics card is unlike most other R7 250’s out there. The thing that most people will notice is that it is 100% passively cooled. This means that there are no fans at all so it will be 100% silent during operation. This makes it the perfect card for those building a silent PC or home theater PC. On top of that this card is actually based on the “Cape Verde” GPU rather than the “Oland” GPU that most R7 250’s are based on. So you get 512 shader units and faster GDDR5 memory. Let’s see what this passively cooled card is all about!

Special thanks to Sapphire for providing us with the R7 250 Ultimate Video Card to review.



The R7 250 Ultimate comes in Sapphire’s typical retail packaging. On the front it does let us know that it is the R7 250 Ultimate and that it has passive silent cooling. Many of the features are listed on the front and it goes into detail on the back so if you are at the store you will have all of the information you will need before you purchase the card.
