AMD launches the Radeon R9 370X
After the launch event of the Radeon R9 370X AMD has announced one more Radeon graphics card – the R9 370X. We have been expecting this one for some time now but the wait is over!
The Radeon R9 370X will compete against the GeForce GTX 950 and GeForce GTX 960 in the sub-$200 market segment. The new AMD video card comes with a 28 nm Trinidad XT GPU that has 1280 stream processors, 80 TMUs and 32 ROPs. The Radeon R9 370X has 2 GB or 4 GB of GDDR5 memory, depending on the model chosen, and a 256-bit memory bus that serves the memory chips on the card.
Maybe thanks to close cooperation with AMD, long-time AMD partner Sapphire has first prepared a Radeon R9 370X video card – the Radeon R9 370X Vapor-X. The card is available with 2 GB and 4 GB of memory and runs the Trinidad XT GPU at 1200 MHz and the memory at 5600 MHz, which provides 179 GB/sec of memory bandwidth. In addition the Radeon R9 370X Vapor-X needs power from two additional 6-pin connectors. The card includes two DVI, one HDMI and one DisplayPort connectors.
No word on pricing.
