We have been hearing about the Tonga GPU for a little while now and it has just recently been revealed that the graphics card based on the new GPU will be called the Radeon R9 285. The Tonga GPU will replace the Tahiti core which has had a lifespan of almost three years now.
Given that this chip will be based on the existing 28 nm process this is going to be a big GPU, over 600 mm²! Since this GPU will be based on the Maxwell architecture thermal loads should not be that bad, but given its going to be a big chip we will just have to see. We could see the GM200-based GeForce GTX Titan II launch is the first half of 2015.
AMD’s upcoming Tonga GPU is a name that you should have heard of by now. New details about the GPU have been revealed. The first and most important news is that the GPU is slated to be released sometime in August. The GPU will replace the Tahiti PRO GPU (R9 280) for the mid-range spectrum. The performance of the chip is supposed to be between the Tahiti PRO and Tahiti XT GPUs.

At Computex 2014 Galaxy is showing off many different graphics cards and one of the most impressive is their GeForce GTX 780 Ti HOF V20. If you remember this card was revealed back in March, but we were unsure of what type of cooling solution Galaxy was going to use. Galaxy has gone with a custom designed water block from EK Water Blocks, which really allows Galaxy to show off that sexy white PCB!
Galaxy had a rather unique graphics card on display at their booth at Computex 2014. It is what they are calling their Fish GeForce GT 630 graphics card. The reason they are calling it the fish is that the heatsink is made to look like a fish.
Colorful was showing off many different graphics cards at Computex 2014 this week. One that definitely caught our attention was the GeForce GTX 780 Ti iGame Kudan.

Galaxy has unveiled their GeForce GTX 780 Ti Hall of Fame (HOF) Second Edition graphics card this week at Computex 2014. Why is this the second edition? It is because Galaxy has completely revamped the cooling solution, using a triple-fan cooler for the first time ever.
ASUS as expected has announced their Republic of Gamers ARES III graphics card at Computex 2014. The ROG ARES III is simply an AMD Radeon R9 295X2 in a new form. AMD is not allowing AiB partners to use the R9 295X2 naming unless they use the reference design of the card.
PowerColor is showing off their recently announced Radeon R9 295X2 Devil13 at Computex 2014 this week. While most R9 295X2’s are liquid cooled with AMD’s reference cooler Power Color has gone with their own massive triple-slot air cooler.
