r7 m260 is really bad. I had a Toshiba S50-b-15n and intel HD5500 was giving me better FPS in games than m260. Returned the laptop as there is no point paying for dedicated GPU when it's slower than iGPU. Games i tested: CS:S, CS:GO, FIFA 14. Maybe 128bit version is better but i doubt it makes much difference. Absolute minimum for gaming on a laptop is geforce 840m which in real life scenatio is pretty much twice as fast as m260.
Amd is all only OpenGL card !It outperforms all nvidia cards when it comes to a OpenGL
I'm planning to buy a laptop with AMD Radeon R7 M260 card. I need this for 3D modelling with Blender but am not able to find any reference if this card supports OpenGL or not. Can someone help me please? Thanks in advance, SG
