2x R7 240s VS R7 260x

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I wanted to get a second R7 240 with $40 that I have and I want to know if it's as good as a 260x (not in price to performance)

it seems that even if the performance were to perfectly double if you crossfired, they still wouldnt beat a 260X's firestrike score.

Chances are, you're getting a used 260X so might as well cough up [arbitrary price] for an R7 265.

If you're getting it new, chances are an R7 360 is cheaper.

260X all the way. It's better to go with a single high performance gpu option than crossfire/SLI 2 lesser card.

You can't crossfire 240s, can you?  You can't' crossfire until the 250 models, iirc.  So, there's no point to putting 2 240s in your system.  Unless, they do it through the pcie lane.  On top of that it's extremely pointless to do.  Just get a used higher solution.

Just don't ever use multi gpu on anything but the top few cards (980ti/ 980 and the different furys)

Didn't Luke do a video about how much the r7 240 sucked? (Low end cards in general)..... Save up and get the highest card you can get. Consider buying used.
