AMD is "putting the finishing touches on the 300 series"

 

AMD has told a disgruntled former owner of Nvidia's GTX 970 on Facebook that they are "putting the finishing touches on the 300 series" of GPUs. They have given no release date for the upcoming series of GPUs. This is the first time AMD has officially spoken about the Radeon Rx 300 series of GPUs, so let's hope this means they will be coming soon.

 

"We don't have an official date to share just yet but the second we know, we will definitely announce it on Facebook."

"We're still putting the finishing touches on the 300 series to make sure they live up to expectation. Can't wait to reveal them though. We're pretty excited."

AMD Rx 300 Series Rumour Round-up

 

A lot of speculation has been flying around the internet over the past few months regarding AMD's next generation of high end GPUs. I can confirm that AMD's next Generation GPU, or rather the AMD R9 390X will be using AMD's Fiji GPU core which will be using the next Generation of AMD's GCN architecture.

Thanks to Zauba, a database for import export data, we can now see that AMD have been sending Fiji PCBs around the world. The C880 PCB is believed to be a finalized PCB design for the R9 390 series of GPUs, with the Fiji XT core being the GPU core used in the R9 390X.

 

 AMD R9 390X Fiji GPU Specs Leaked

 

The most interesting leak so far for the AMD R9 390x is these potential specifications. Data from SiSoft Sandra has appeared on their online database regarding a future unknown AMD high-end GPU, giving a core count and potential clock speeds.

There are two cards which are of particular interest, firstly a card with 4096 stream processors at 1000MHz with 4GB of VRAM. This card is thought to be the R9 390X. The Second GPU has 3520 stream processors at 1050MHz and is thought to be the R9 390. Links to these results are here and here.

The sheer amount of stream processors in these units compared to the R9 290X and R9 290, which were 2816 and 2560 stream processors respectively, means that these GPUs should perform much better than their predecessors. Even after the bump in core count there is also the architectural improvements to consider like the improved tessellation performance and memory efficiency as seen in AMD's Tonga based R9 285.

AMD do not just need to beat the Maxwell based GTX 980 here, but AMD need to release a product which will compete with "Big Maxwell" which is expected at some point next year. Remember guys, in terms of core count and die size the GTX 980 is really a GTX 770 or 680 replacement. What would Nvidia's Maxwell be like when scales up to the core count/ die size of a GTX Titan or 780Ti?

Things are looking good for the future of GPUs.

It certainly does tie in with the leaked performance reports when you consider the timing.
If those charts are anything to go by not only is it more powerful than the 980, but Nvidia will really have to pump out the specs on their next card to stay ahead.

What I will be impressed with if true is that this card is rumored to be 300W while maintaining a mere 73C temp at load. This could certainly pull me away from Nvidia once the waterblocks are released.Quote

Hmmm although I despise Nvidia at the moment Im still not a great fan of AMD having had bad experiences in the past.

Now Ebuyer have agreed to refund me for my 970's Once they are back and refunded I need to make a decision on what to buy with all that money. Quote

Maybe you jumped on the refund wagon a little too soon? Perhaps you would have been better waiting just a little longer and holding out for something much better. Obviously its one of those "what if" moments but AMD are now at a point where no one can rightly say "I used to have bad experiences in the past". Their cards are great performers now. And we need them to be, to stop Nvidia having the monopoly on the market.Quote

I previously had a Sapphire R9 290X TriX and really didnt get on with it, I found it noisy hot and the drivers a bit sub par so I swapped out for an EVGA 780ti SC.

I would love to see them release a card that actually challenges nvidia in temp's and power efficiency with great performanceQuote

As much as the R9 290 is a fast and cheap card, unless you had the sapphire cards, it was a leaf blower under load. Hopefully the 390 won't be as in this day and age there really isn't a need to have any more case dust busters.Quote
