AMD has just announced a $30 price cut for their Radeon R9 280 graphics card. Compared to the Radeon R9 280X the R9 280 has a few differences like a 20% lower clock speed, turbo speed, memory speed and less shaders and computing units.
It looks like the first review of NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX Titan Z graphics card has been leaked. It is from Chinese magazine E-Zone who had published the review back on May 8th, the original date of when the Titan Z was supposed to be launched. Looking at the results from their tests you can see why NVIDIA has delayed the card for the time being.
Reports have surfaced that say AMD is working on a new single-GPU graphics card to compete with NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 780 Ti and maybe even the GeForce GTX Titan Black. While we expect this new graphics card to have a clock speed bump, it will also leverage high-bandwidth memory (HBM). This new cutting edge technology relies on stacking multiple DRAM dies with dedicated memory paths into a single package. This will effectively cut down on power draw, temperatures and PCB real estate.
NVIDIA was supposed to launch their high-performance GeForce GTX Titan Z graphics card this week, but we have not seen any reviews, any release from NVIDIA or seen the card hit retail shelves. As many people have guessed the card has been delayed once again. According to GDM.OR.JP the card has been delayed indefinitely.
MSI has just announced a brand new graphics card to their gaming lineup. It is the R9 270X GAMING 2G ITX, which if you can guess by the name is a card made for ITX builds. That card is just 17 centimeters long, which means it will easily be able to fit in your small form factor build.
PowerColor will soon be launching their Radeon R9 295X2 Devil13 graphics card, which of course will be the successor to the previous Devil 13 card that featured dual Tahiti cores. The card will most likely be the first custom-cooled R9 295X2 card as all of the ones that we have seen so far have used the reference cooling design.
It looks like some Chinese retailers did not pay attention to NVIDIA’s NDA for the GeForce GTX Titan Z graphics card. Below we have a full listing of specifications for the card, which for those who are wondering the Titan Z will have 5760 CUDA cores, a base clock of 705 MHz and will boost all the way up to 876 MHz.
SAPPHIRE technology, the leading manufacturer and global supplier of AMD-based graphics products, has just added another new model to its highly acclaimed Vapor-X family of graphics cards in the successful R9 series. The SAPPHIRE R9 290X Vapor-X OC features several of the company’s industry-leading technologies and a factory overclock to deliver best in class performance with very low noise.
NVIDIA’s Dual-GPU Geforce GTX Titan Z is supposed to launch tomorrow, but according to a report by Sweclockers the launch of the card has been delayed. It is unclear why NVIDIA will be postponing the card. Some say PR issues, others say that NVIDIA wants to make sure to card competes will against AMD’s R9 295X2.
