Low-TDP AMD Radeon R7 360E for sale in Japan

 

A new AMD Radeon GPU has shown up in Japan. Several stores recently started selling an 'R7 360E', a low-TDP variant of the R7 360 which doesn't require any PCI-e power cables. To achieve this, AMD has reduced the TDP to 75W, which is the maximum amount of power a PCI-e slot can provide.

The specifications of the R7 360E are not too dissimilar from its 'regular' sibling, as shown below. It's based on the Tobago-chip, which is basically a rebranded Bonaire-GPU. It is notable that in 3DMark Fire Strike, the R7 360E consistently underclocked itself to a clock speed of about 600~800 MHz. Also, where the regular R7 360 would beat the GTX 750, the 360E stays behind. This makes it less ideal for gamers.

As shown, the 360E underclocked itself during the benchmark to maintain its low TDP.

Performance-wise, the card is noticeably slower than the regular R7 360. It did beat the GTX 750 in Fire Strike Extreme, though.

In Fallout 4 at medium, the R7 360E loses to both the R7 360 and the GTX 750.

 

As you can see, the R7 360E definitely doesn't perform as good as its older sibling, the R7 360. Still, this card might be a good GPU for in a home-theater PC.

At the time of writing this article, it's unknown if the R7 360E will launch outside Japan. We at OC3D will keep you up-to-date.

Interesting, so AMD have essentially created a Mini R9 Nano. Cool idea, but nothing revolutionary.Quote

Aye, it's definitely a cool GPU. It's pretty much an underclocked HD 7790 that doesn't require PCI-e power cables. I can see it being used in HTPCs for sure!Quote
