It seems like AMD plans to release a new graphics card, which will put a shelf on the average performance and will replace the aged there AMD Radeon R9 270. The new Graphic card would be AMD R9 370, this new is coming from foreign media Vrzone, it will feature the Trinidad GPU Core based on the existing 28nm process node.
AMD is planning an alternative for the Radeon R9 270
The Curacao Pro chip which is used in the R9 270 is the rebranded of Pitcairn GPU, which was emphasized on the Radeon HD 7870. AMD’s Radeon R9 270 and Radeon R9 270x offer two diverse Curacao chips, the Curacao Pro on the 270 and XT variants on the 270x however, there’s little distinction between these two chips since both offer a comparable center design of 1280 stream processors, 80 texture units and 32 ROPs. Indeed the memory configuration is also the same in both variants.
The new GPU will most probably based on GCN architecture 1.2 (Curacao Pro with R9 270 is based on the GCN 1.0). In addition to the board will be 2 GB of GDDR5 memory and 256-bit interface. There are also lots of chances that the new card will also make use of HBM memory.
Unofficially we know that the new Radeon (AMD Radeon R9 370?) will make its debut in March. Price of card is a mystery, but we can expect here about 150 – $200 – roughly the same cost of Radeon R9 270.
