AMD had a low-key press event announce the first new graphics cards that are part of the Radeon 300 series. These are both desktop and mobile versions, but as you can guess these cards are simply rebrands of current cards rather than actual new graphics cards.
At its Investor Day presentation AMD took a good part of it to talk about GPUs. They announced that they will continue to make GPUs for every segment of the market. The company plans to continue to improve on its Graphics CoreNext architecture, but is really betting on the huge performance / watt increase with its GPUs in 2016. The reason for this increase will be its move to the 14nm FinFET process.
GALAX is quite know for their Hall of Fame (HOF) series of graphics cards. Besides just their awesome looks with their all white PCB, they also have some of the fastest clocks available. To take things to the next level they have just revealed their Custom GTX HOF Water Cooled Editions.
As we keep on getting closer and closer to the release on AMD’s R300 series we have been hearing a lot of rumors within the industry. According to TweakTown AMD will have two Radeon R9 390X cards at launch. The first will be the Radeon R9 395X2 (a dual-GPU card) with 8GB of VRAM. The second will be a 4GB card that will not be able to beat NVIDIA’s Titan X.
If you happened to want to get a GeForce GTX Titan X you only have one choice, the reference design from NVIDIA. NVIDIA did not allow add-in board (AIB) partners to modify the card with a custom PCB or a different cooler. Well it looks like this will change with the GeForce GTX 980 Ti, with NVIDIA apparently green-lighting custom versions of the card.
Now the cool part is that this kit comes to you in a hard-type suitcase! Definitely a great way to showoff a premium product like this. Of course it has a premium price of $2999, but you do get a free Acer 27-inch G-Sync monitor.
A few people have been taking a closer look at the 15.3 beta version of AMD’s Catalyst driver. They have discovered new entries that point to the upcoming Radeon Rx 300 series of graphics cards. And it looks just as we expected, most of the 300 series will be rebrands of older products.
Looks like Zotac is showing up to the GTX 960 4 GB party with not one but two different graphics cards. The first card is their normal GTX 960 4 GB model (ZT-90308-10M), which does feature a minor overclock of 1177 MHz core with 1240 MHz boost (vs. reference clocks of 1126/1178 MHz).
Inno3D has just announced their iChill GeForce GTX 980 and GTX 970 Black Series Accelero Hybrid S models. These cards use an integrated air and liquid cooling solution that the company says has a 200% better cooling performance and is 9 times quieter than the stock cooler. It is also the first LCS to have an integrated active fan specifically designed to cool RAM and VR.
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.
