Anyway if its fast enough to rival the HD7850 but with lower price, I will consider getting it.
Just have to wait until they are available in my country

I don't know the actual specific performance of the R7 260X but I do know that TrueAudio is only available on new architecture and not re-Brands. I'm positive from what I read on TrueAudio the R7 260X is capable along with the R9 290X and 290. It's all the other cards that are re-brands.

AMD is implementing a fully programmable audio engine, True Audio technology will only be on the new architecture R9 290X, 290 & R7 260X with an onboard audio processor to help with CPU load. Game developers can use a Wwise audio plugin over the AMD True Audio DPS. If used approximately 14% of the CPU will be offloaded to the graphic card. GCN handles it.

I guess thats good for those still using dualcores, not very useful if you have a quad or faster cpu.
A used HD7850 costs around $130 here, if the R7 260X retails at $139 here then its a no brainer.
