AMD’s FreeSync technology is their answer from NVIDIA’s proprietary G-Sync technology. It appears that not all AMD GPU’s will be supported by the technology. Only GPU’s based on “Hawaii” and “Tonga” silicon will be supported. So this includes the R9 285, R9 290, R9 290X and R9 295X2.
AMD has just announced that their Radeon R9 295X2 will be getting a promotional price. Available through specific retailers, and available to everyone not just OEMs the Radeon R9 295X2 will get a price drop down from $1499 to $999.
Last week at AMD’s “30 years of Radeon Graphics and Gaming Commemoration” event they announced the Radeon R9 285 graphics card. The card has been officially launched today with a MSRP of $249 and several AIB partners have released custom versions of the card.
Over the weekend AMD held their 30th Anniversary event. At the event they officially announced the Radeon R9 285. The AMD R9 285 is equipped with the Tonga PRO GPU, which has 1792 stream processors, 112 TMUs, and 32 ROPs. The card will come equipped with 2 GB or 4 GB of GDDR5 memory that operates at 5.5 GHz (effective). The core clock speed of the card is set at 918 MHz.
Sapphire has just added a new graphics card to their R9 290X lineup. It is the R9 290X Vapor-X Tri-X OC graphics card. The thing that sets this card apart from their other R9 290X cards is that it features vapor-chamber technology to improve cooling even more than than their current cards and this card features a factory overclock on both the GPU and the memory. The card will have a GPU frequency of 1080 MHz (80 MHz over reference) and the memory will be running at speeds of 5.64 GHz (effective). Other features of the card include a pretty sleek backplate, a Sapphire logo that lights up and even changes colors and dual BIOS support. Is this the Radeon R9 290X that you want? Read on as we take a look…
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.
We have our first look at an AMD all-in board (AIB) branded Radeon R9 295X2 graphics card, which comes from ASUS. From the leaked photos / renders we can see that the card will ship in a large cube-like box. We are not sure if this card will come with the metal suitcase that AMD’s reference cards came in.
The official specifications and pictures of the upcoming Radeon R9 295X2 have been unveiled by the guys over at VideoCardz. These photos and slides give us all the information we have been wanting to know about AMD’s dual-GPU card.
As we get closer and closer to the launch of the AMD Radeon R9 295X2 we are expecting more and more leaks. The leak today comes in the form of the first benchmarks released for AMD’s new dual-GPU card.
Well it did not take long for someone to open their briefcase from AMD and take a few shots of the Radeon R9 295X2. The leaked photos come from our friends over at Chiphell and from the looks of things the Radeon R9 295X2 looks rather boring if you ask me.
