Before people get too excited about the 300 series listed, remember there was an 8000 series, too.
Hahaha why you gotta say funny shit.
And someone just had to write a piece about it. Surprise surprise lol
There is one problem though - it's lousy coding of games. Read some reviews of Project Cars, and it looks like the 290 series is unplayable, as it gets much worse results than NV. THere was also the issue of stuttering in FC4. AMD really should work closer with devs, because even if they would have superior hardware, what good it would do, if it will run like 50% worse than competition?
Not much AMD can do about that, other than try to claw back to even footing with regard to market share.
Look at BF4 and dice and Johan Andersson who helped designed Mantle that they broke with Patches in their own BF4 game time and time again.
If the guy designing both the game and the api Mantle cant get it right what chance have FC4 or project cars as they dont do their homework anyhow.
That's kinda funny. Some people expected that 380 non X will be gtx 980 killer based on both of them being listed in HP press release

Sorry I was late, I know its a repost!!!
Don't know if I can believe that. Why on earth of all the people out there would wftech have an offical 390X on their hands, and be aloud to show it.
Maybe they have just seen the real thing and they rendered it? Anyways I guess it is some hope.
I rekon Nvidia will release the 980 Ti a few weeks before the 390X just to try and steal some more of the market while they can before the 390X comes out.
Don't those both use Nvidia gameworks?
I don't believe that the 300 series will be anything other than an oem line.
I also don't believe that big Maxwell will be a 900 series gpu. Kind of like gtx 780.
Dear michael and araxie google does not bite.
this is the r9 390x.
4096SP 64C 1GHz, 4GB 1.25GHz 4096-bit
R9 380x(Full Fat Hawaii[the R9 290xtx version that amd never bothered to release])
3200SP 40C 947MHz, 3GB
all curtesy of sisoft sandra. Specs may change.
Yes, and that's the real issue. The tire smoke in Project Cars kills the performance in that game. Why couldn't the developer add Compute smoke effects for AMD cards? Warframe did it and they're no huge developer. I will give SMS credit for trying to get AMD performance up though.
At one point a GTX 560 was much faster than a R9 290x in Project Cars.
Gotta love that lens flare coming off of the IO plate...
Couldn't they have at least tried harder?
If the 380x is in fact the full-fat Hawaii with 3200sps, that is going to be one big, hot, loud, power-hungry card. Reminds me of my old goat. They should think about putting a tacometer and blower on the front of the cooler
290x was a full Hawaii die... this was confirmed many times over.
Thought that was the case... same as Pitcairn. In that case, we're looking at something different e.g. mini Fiji
They should still consider putting a tac and blower on it though
And until we have formal specs straight from the horses mouth, or reviewers have cards in hand, this is completely useless information.
Can't trust Sisoft or any other report writer for this stuff. There are engineerin samples, prototypes, etc. etc. that may not be reflective of final product, as well as some of this stuff may be straight up faked.
Specs out. Leaked specs?
The slides say March 15.
No new info.
edit // Yep the specs are from an old leak: http://videocardz.com/55124/amd-radeon-r9-390x-wce-could-this-be-real
More shitty hardware journalism.
Haven't seen that before.
I didn't realize that the new 300 series will be powered by tacos.
More fuel for the fire...
That's either a giant video card or a tiny radiator.
they will be offering 2 versions.
the water cooled edition with the smaller pcb, and water cooler. Then the air cooled edition which will be a longer card slighter smaller than the 290x.
Performance wise I think it is going to beat out 295x2 and the Titan X at 4k.
Depends on where they're manufactured.
If that turns out to be the case, then i'm in for at least one, maybe 2 cards. Will decide when the reviews are out on the Air cooled or Water cooled editions.
Yep we are all patiently waiting.
Looks like they will be called the 300 series after all?
New slide here:
While it will potentially punish me a little, I am glad to see the possible end of DVI ports.
I like this, a lot!
According to WCCFTech that image is fake.
I will like it if it delivers well.
Wouldn't be surprised but thats according to a site where everything is fake.
Is it? They've been accurate so far.
However they steal rumors from other sources. WCCFTech is blogspam.
Even a broken clock is right twice a day.
They don't do any fact checking and just post any rumor. How am I supposed to believe anything that comes from that site?
So, the 300 series might be OEM only and we are looking at the 400 series soon?:
Perhaps they are going to leave 3xx to the oems, and fiji will be 490x like they did with 8xxx
Looks like it. AMD is probably clearing out inventory of 2XX chips by having a 3XX series "firesale" to OEMs. Since AMD declared the 380, 370 and 360 OEM ONLY, I doubt we´ll see any retail 3XX cards.
The next generation of retail cards in June is probably 4XX series.
Did You guys miss Kyle saying 400 series is next year and it will be real next gen ?
Everything starts to fall together nicely
rehashes up to 380 maybe full tonga and one new chip above it and that will be probably everything amd has to show.
