TUL Corporation, a leading and innovative manufacturer of AMD graphic cards since 1997, has released a new video card in PowerColor PCS+ R9 380X Myst. Edition 4GB GDDR5. It is based on AMD’s latest GCN architecture that delivers extraordinary graphics performance and image quality; furthermore, the models also support AMD’s newest technologies such as Virtual Super Resolution, FreeSync and Liquid VR.
AMD today has officially announced the Radeon R9 380X graphics card. This card is positioned between the Radeon R9 380 and Radeon R9 390. The card will start at $229 and take advantage of the gap between NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 960 ($190) and the GeForce GTX 970 ($319).
AMD has just announced their, “A battle for the fate of the galaxy should be met with Fury”. Which is their new promotional games bundle in which they are giving away a full copy of Star Wars Battlefront to people who purchase its Radeon R9 Fury graphics cards and select System Integrator systems equipped with a Radeon Fury. This offer does not apply to AMD’s Radeon R9 Fury X or R9 Nano graphics cards.
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.
