Leaked Driver confirms Radeon 300 series cards will feature rebrands

 

A leaked AMD driver has confirmed that certain Radeon 300 series cards will be rebrands. The rumour surfaced a couple of weeks ago, though there was no actual prove that this would be the case. VideoCardz reports that cards supported by the driver included rebrands: three Curacao rebrands, one Bonaire, one Tonga and two Hawaii cards.

The full list of confirmed Radeon 300 series rebrands are is below:

AMD6658.1AMD Radeon(TM) R7 360 GraphicsBonaire XTX [Radeon R7 260X]
AMD67B0.1AMD Radeon R9 300 SeriesHawaii XT [Radeon R9 290X]
AMD67B1.1AMD Radeon R9 300 SeriesHawaii PRO [Radeon R9 290]
AMD6810.1AMD Radeon(TM) R7 370 GraphicsCuracao XT [Radeon R9 270X]
AMD6810.2AMD Radeon (TM) R7 300 SeriesCuracao XT [Radeon R9 270X]
AMD6811.1AMD Radeon (TM) R7 300 SeriesCuracao PRO [Radeon R9 270/370]
AMD6939.1AMD Radeon R9 300 SeriesTonga PRO [Radeon R9 285]

Support for Fiji GPUs wasn't included in the leaked driver. Also notable: the R9 Hawaii rebrands aren't listed as R9 380 or R9 390 series cards, but as R9 200. Same thing for the R9 285 rebrand. Both Hawaii cards will get a small boost in clockspeeds and 8GBs of vRAM.

In other news, ASUS has confirmed the R9 390X will feature 8GBs of vRAM. The ASUS R9390X-DC2-8GD5 was added to their list of 300 series GPUs. Why ASUS didn't use a Direct Cu3 cooler on the 390X? Who knows. A list of all confirmed Radeon 300 series cards by ASUS can be found on WCCFTech.

Could be for OEMs? They've released OEM 300 series already.

Besides a lot of rumors are saying they aren't just a name change, it's tweaked and updated to newest GCN so they can support Freesync, DX12, etc.Quote

I don't want rumours, I want the release lol. I want to know if I have wasted my time waiting for the release of the new AMD cards (the 980ti is looking tempting depending on it's price point)...Quote

There was one on Tech report which said that quite a few of the lower tier cards would be rebrands.

According to Tech Report the R9 380 and 360 will will support Freesync but the 370 won't and I am guessing the ones below the 360 won't either.

So it looks like the only "New" GPU's in the 300 series will be the 390 and 390x, although the 390 could possibly be a rebrand of the 290x, but we will have to wait and see.Quote

Something has been bugging me about how the pricing structure of the new cards will work. Consensus on rumours seems to be that the R9 290 & 290X will be re-branded as the R9 380 & 380X with two new cards in the top slot(s) as per the previous generation of cards. The 290 & 290X can currently be had for £200 & £240 resectively (quick glance at Scan.co.uk who seem to be the cheapest for these cards) and the price for the top 390X is thought to be about £750 which leaves an awfuklly big price gap for the R9 390 to fill if AMD doesn't raise the prices of the rebranded 290/290X.Quote
