If you can remember these cards were actually originally planned for a September 2014 release as the Radeon R9 285X. The release was postponed because it would fail to compete against the just released NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 / 970, which had a much better performance per watt ratio. Now that the GTX 960 is out AMD is looking to fill in the performance gap between the 960 and 970. The Radeon R9 380X will have 2048 Stream Processors and 4GB of GDDR5 memory across a 256-bit interface. We have photos of three upcoming R9 380X’s from ASUS, XFX and Gigabyte.
