When starting with Unigine Heaven, there was Catalyst driver stability issues for some of the tested AMD GPUs. However, in terms of how the Radeon R7 260X from Sapphire ran against the GPUs that worked, the graphics card was right behind the Radeon HD 7850. The Radeon R9 270X that meanwhile is about $100 (USD) more than this tested graphics card was measurably faster. The Radeon R7 260X was running noticeably better than the GeForce GTX 550 Ti and GTX 650, with the latter being roughly comparable in price to this R7 260X.

Our findings were similar when running the Unigine Sanctuary benchmark on Ubuntu Linux and here we have a broader look at the overall Sapphire Radeon R7 260X performance with not running into any Catalyst driver stability issues.

When running Unigine Tropics the R7 260X performance had fallen a little behind the Radeon HD 7850.
