Recently there is a lot of conflicting information on the launch of the AMD Radeon Rx 300 series graphics cards. It seems that these models appear earlier than suspected – the first will be Radeon R9 370, so a representative of mid-range performance.
XFX is preparing R9 370 – we know the partial specification
Such information has reached to the foregin media VideoCardz, which is famous for its pretty good news on Graphics cards- in this case came into possession of the company XFX Radeon model with the specifications of R9 370 Core Edition. The Graphics card is featuring Trinidad GPU Core which is the re-branded version of the Curacao Pro chip, used in the R9 270 and Curacao Pro is also the re-branded version 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 Trinidad Pro version will be available in 2 GB or 4 GB of GDDR5 memory with 256-bit. Timing? Factory-raised, but still we don’t know the values.
For display output it will feature a typical set of video outputs, and so two DVI and one HDMI and DisplayPort. Noteworthy is the fact that the action card is required to connect a single 6-pin- this mean that the power consumption is about 110-130 W, and therefore more or less the same as its predecessor (the Radeon R9 270).
If you believe in the rumors, the Radeon R9 370 will be available in the market from the beginning of April.
