AMD have finally released, at least on paper, their latest range of cards. The lineup consists of the following; The flagship R9 Fury X, R9 Fury, R9 390 X, R9 390, R7 380, R7 370 and the R7 360
Perhaps unremarkably the only real ‘new’ chip is the Bermuda based R9 Fury cards, with all the rest being rebranded 200 series chips aka Hawaii, Tonga etc etc…
So to the specifications. The top end Fury cards pack 4096 stream processors, 64 GCN compute units, 4GB of VRAM and a GPU speed up to 1050MHz. It will also be the first AMD card to feature high bandwidth memory, or HBM for short. The Fury X is also the only one that’s watercooled and you can guarantee it will require quite a hefty PSU!
The R9 390X and 390 use more bog standard GDDR5 memory, although you’ll at least get a full 8GB of the stuff. The 390X will feature 2816 stream processors 176 TMUs and 64 ROPs with the GPU speed set at 1050MHz, memory speed is clocked at 1500MHz (6GHz QDR) across a 512 bit bus. The 390 non-x version comes with 2560 stream processors 160 TMUs and 64 ROPs. This card will have a stock GPU speed of 1000MHz and the memory clocked at 1500MHz, or 6GHz QDR with a 384 bit bandwidth. Price for the 390 X is around $430 with the 390 coming in at around $330.
Onto the R9 380 series. Here we have three Antigua or Tonga Pro based cards. All feature 1792 stream processors with 112 TMUs and 32 ROPs. Clock speeds should be 970MHz and memory is clocked at 1375 MHz on a 256 bit bus. These cards will come with either 2 or 4GB of memory, with prices being around the 200 dollar mark.
The R7 370 series utilises 1024 stream processors, 64 TMUs and 32 ROPs. This card is essentially the same design as the R7 265. Clock speed will be 975 MHz with memory coming in at 1425 MHz. Prices are expected to be around the $150 mark.
Last up in the lineup is the Tobago based R7 360. It comes with 768 stream processors and is essentially a rebadged Bonaire Pro chip. The GPU core is clocked at 1050 MHz and comes with 2GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 6.5GHz across a 128 bit bus.
