Three Radeon R9 380X Graphics Cards Pictured

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.

XFX Radeon R9 380X Spotted

It looks like AMD is readying a new SKU to take advantage of the pricing gap between the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 and GTX 970. This will be the R9 380X and it will be based on the 28nm "Tonga" silicon. The R9 380X is likely to max out the specifications on the "Tonga" silicon, offering 2048 stream processors, 128 TMUs, 32 ROPs, and a 384-bit wide GDDR5 interface that can hold either 3GB or 6GB of memory.

AMD Hawaii GPUs Will Be Part of the Radeon 300 Series

After AMD quietly announced the first Radeon 300 Series cards for OEMs we were unsure where the Hawaii rebrands would fit into the product stack. With the Radeon R9 380 being a rebrand of the R9 285 that did not leave many cards left to be based off the Hawaii silicon. It looks like the Radeon 300 series cards that will be based off Hawaii will feature higher core clocks and more VRAM.

AMD R9 390 Series to Launch at Computex

AMD is preparing to launch their Radeon R9 300 Series at Computex this year in June. Original rumors pointed to the fact that the company had planned on launching products that were essentially price-adjusted rebrands of existing ones. This would include the R9 380 series which would be a rebrand of a R9 290 series with slightly improved silicon and a R9 370 series that would be based on the Tonga silicon. But it has been decided that AMD will launch the entire series including the R9 390X flagship card all at the same time.
