Radeon R300-series pricing listed
Little by little the upcoming Radeon R300-series specs have become known – the pack will be led by the exclusive Fiji-based Radeon R9 Fury, while the rest of the video cards of this line will feature somewhat improved older Radeon R200-series GPUs. The only thing that is missing in the picture is how much the new generation cards will cost.
Fortunately the pricing of the upcoming Radeon R300-series has been listed online. According to this information the upcoming Radeon R9 390X and Radeon R9 390 with 8 GB of GDDR5 memory each will be improved versions of the Radeon R9 290X and Radeon R9 290, respectively, and will cost USD 389 and USD 329, accordingly. Moving down the ladder we will see the Radeon R9 380X, which will be a Tonga XT-based video card with a 384-bit memory bus that will sell for USD 250. Then we will get the Radeon R9 380 with 2 GB of VRAM, which will be a renamed Radeon R9 285, for USD 195. The Radeon R7 370 will have 2 GB of VRAM and will be a renamed R9 270 or R9 270X graphics card, which in turn are renamed Radeon HD 7850 and HD 7870 graphics cards. This one will sell for USD 135. Finally we will get the Radeon R7 360, which will be based on the Bonaire GPU, found in the R7 260X, R7 260 and HD 7790 graphics cards. The Radeon R7 360 will sell for USD 107.
The new AMD graphics cards generation is expected next week.
