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.
The R9 390X will be based on brand new silicon and is said to be AMD’s answer to NVIDIA’s recently announced GeForce GTX Titan X. The new card AMD is rumored to have 4096 stream processors based on the Graphics Card 1.3 architecture, will use the new high-bandwidth memory, and will have a memory bandwidth of over 600 GB/s.
