According to a report from vBulletin Solutions it has not been more or less confirmed that AMD plans to do the exact same thing with the upcoming Radeon R300 series. The flagship cards will be equipped with the new GPU “Fiji” while everything else will be a rebrand. So we will see everything from Hawaii to Tonga down to Bonaire.
We have some more news on AMD’s upcoming R300 series. The Radeon R9 380X and R9 380 which will be set to compete with NVIDIA’s GTX 980 and GTX 970 will be based on a new silicon called “Grenada”. This silicon is built on the 28 nm process and will be a refined version of “Hawaii” much like “Curacao” was to “Pitcarin” in the previous generation.
It looks like we could see an AMD Radeon 300 Series launch very soon! In response to a question asked on its Facebook whether their next-generation Radeon R300 series will come out before the GTA V PC launch (March), AMD actually responded saying, “We’re still putting finishing touches to the 300 series, to make sure they live up to expectation. Can’t wait to reveal them though. We’re pretty excited.”
To celebrate the grand milestone of selling over 100 million NVIDIA GPU based graphics cards from the moment MSI started to manufacture these until 2015, MSI has prepared a special limited edition of its recently launched GTX 960 GAMING and much awarded GTX 970 GAMING models with a striking NVIDIA green color scheme.
While we still do not know a whole lot about AMD’s Radeon R300 series, the first rumors about the Radeon R400 series have already started to appear. According to a report by SweClockers the Radeon R400 series, expected in 2016, will be codenamed Arctic Islands. For those who have not been following AMD over the […]
Colorful Technology, the biggest NVIDIA AIC in China, announced the latest GTX960 series graphics cards. Four different models had been released this time, including Colorful GTX960 CH with reference design for entry users, Colorful GTX960 i-Cafe for System Integrators, iGame GTX960 Ymir-U for general users and iGame GTX960 Ymir-X for enthusiasts.
As we get closer to the official launch of the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 more cards have been appearing. We have already seen Gigabyte’s G1 Gaming card, now cards from ASUS, EVGA and Zotac have been revealed!
On NVIDIA’s latest releases, the GTX 970 and 980 we saw many add-in card (AIC) partners that use custom cooling solutions feature a idle-fan off mode. This feature allows for the fans on the card to turn completely off when the card is at idle or below a temperature threshold. This in turn makes the card completely silent when you are not gaming. NVIDIA is planning at add this feature to their next generation GeForce GTX Titan X graphics card.
Even after receiving some very positive feedback on their launch version of the GTX 970, Zotac has decided to make some changes to the cooler and release a couple of more options for their customers.
It does not look like both AMD and NVIDIA will be releasing any new cards for the rest of the year. For those expecting to see the GeForce GTX 960 this month, it won’t be coming. It seems NVIDIA really does not even have to release it with the popularity of their GTX 980 / 970 cards. Back to AMD, they are prepping a faster Hawaii variant that should release a few months from now.
