[RUMOR] Competition in the video card market gains more heat, first with the announcement of the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980Ti, and now it seems that AMD has adapted to the conditions, although it seems they are about to fail in this attempt as most of the GPUs are based on rebranded core. Well, today we have rumored price of AMD R9 300 Series GPUs so remains to be confirmed.
AMD R9 300 Series, Radeon Fury and Fury X Alleged Prices Revealed
The important fact in the upcoming series from AMD is that we will not see a huge list of new proposals, there are only two new Graphics cards based on a new Fiji Core featuring 4GB of VRM and direct compete with GeForce GTX 980Ti. But if we see the prices these new candies again fail to accommodate reasonable price, as the price difference is about $100 when we compare Radeon R9 Fury X featuring 4GB HBM with the proposal from the green team.
- AMD Radeon R9 380 4GB $279
- AMD Radeon R9 390 8GB $419
- AMD Radeon R9 390x 8Gb $499
- AMD Radeon Fury 4GB HBM $599 (based on the harvested / cut-down Core)
- AMD Radeon Fiji X 4GB HBM $749 (based on the Fiji XT core “uncut”)
It is noteworthy that the AMD Radeon Fury has only 4GB of VRAM, unlike the 6GB holding the 980Ti, although it remains to see the results of the HBM (High Bandwidth Memory) as according to the analyst it is about 9X faster than current GDDR5. The Fiji XT (uncut) die and Fiji PRO (cut). Both classifications will have 4GB of HBM memory, however, Fiji XT will be a reference water-cooled card.
