Newest rumors from China on future video cards Radeon R9 390X, R9 380X and R9 370X.
AMD has yet to unveil its new line of high-end video cards, but the usual well-informed Chinese boys of VR-Zone have already disclosed how safe the Codename of the GPU that will characterize every single solution, reiterating that the launch date has been set for Computex 2015.
AMD Fiji, Grenada, Trinidad and Tobago: Most of the Next-Gen GPUs are Rebranded versions
But let’s see what awaits us… We already knew that Fiji will be the flagship of AMD GPU, but previously we had no certainty on the nomenclature of the solutions below.
From what has emerged, always about Fiji XT, and according to expectation, it was going to capture the crown from newly launched NVIDIA TITAN X in terms of performance level, but you will be disappointed, as the Radeon R9 390X will be much faster than the GTX 980, but a hair behind then the High-end GTX Titan X. R9 390X will feature incredible Stream Processor and new 8Gb of HBM memory.
Obviously they all are only speculation, but given the latest moves of NVIDIA, who has sent you a hypothetical version in June, could correspond to reality. After Fiji there is the Grenada GPU core, which should be a more efficient version of the GPU Hawaii currently mounted on the R9 290x, perhaps also lightly doped-level calculation unit, so not only on the frequencies, which is why the future R9 380X we can talk about a partial re-branding. Finally, Trinidad is the successor of Curraco Pro. The Curacao Pro chip which is used in the R9 270 is the re-branded of the Pitcairn GPU (emphasized on the Radeon HD 7870). The new GPU will most probably based on GCN architecture 1.2 (Curacao Pro with R9 270 is based on the GCN 1.0). The AMD Trinidad GPU core would be fussed on AMD R9 370X.
Closes the list that will be perhaps the most interesting of the lot GPU, like Fiji or Tobago, we expect quite new and that will equip the R7 360.
Computex this year promises to be warmer than usual.
