The new card is not by any means new, as it was initially gotten ready for September 2014 as Radeon R9 285X. The full Tonga was put off in light of the fact that it would fail going up against just released GTX 980/970. After one year of R9 285X launched now we have AMD Radeon R9 380X based on the Antigua XT (Antigua is a new name for Tonga). The Radeon R9 380X will be released on November 15 for $249, but it seems that final launch will take place on Friday November 20.
The Radeon R9 380X will use Antigua XT graphics core consists of 2048 Stream Processors, 128 TMUs and 32 ROPs at a frequency that would move between 1000 and 1100 MHz accompanied with 4GB of GDDR5 memory at a frequency between 5500 and 6000 MHz with an interface of 256 bits giving a bandwidth between 176 and 192 GB / s at a yield of 4.10 TFLOPS.
Luckey, we have the first pictures of R9 380X from AMD’s AIB partner Asus, Gigabyte and XFX.
