Sapphire is working a new upcoming Radeon R9 290X in their Vapor-X series. What is interesting about this card is that Sapphire will be doubling the memory over AMD’s reference design, giving you a total of 8GB of VRAM! This will make the Sapphire Radeon R9 290X Vapor-X the first consumer-based graphics card with 8GB of VRAM.
In addition to launching their first Maxwell-based cards in the GeForce GTX 750 Series, NVIDIA also announced their new flagship graphics card the GeForce GTX Titan Black. This card will be replacing the original GeForce GTX Titan.
NVIDIA officially announced their GeForce GTX 750 Series, which is made up of the GeForce GTX 750 Ti and GeForce GTX 750. Both of these cards are entry level cards and based on the 28 nm GM107 silicon. These are the first two cards based on NVIDIA’s next-generation Maxwell GPU architecture.
NVIDIA will be releasing their GeForce GTX Titan Black next week. This is not going to be a huge announcement, but rather a subtle one. The card will appear in stores soon after the NDA lifts.
It looks like the final specifications for both the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti and GTX 750 have been revealed by Vietnamese site Tinhte.vn. The information is directly from an NVIDIA press conference where NVIDIA was going over the Maxwell architecture and the new cards.
For those expecting the upcoming NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan Black Edition to sport an all black shroud or something to that effect you are going to be disappointed. It looks like the only real black part of the card will be the logo, much like the GTX 780 Ti cards.
Today AMD is officially launching their Radeon R7 250X Graphics Card. This will be more of an entry-level card and will retail for only $99. The R7 250X will bridge the gap between the R7 250 and R7 260 and will serve as a PR counter for NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 750 Ti and GTX 750.
NVIDIA’s upcoming Maxwell cards the GeForce GTX 750 Ti and GeForce GTX 750 are right around the corner. It looks like both cards have been leaked and previewed by UKGamingComputers. This preview and leak has been based on the reference design of the cards.
