Radeon R9 380X scheduled for October 2015
In the past few weeks there have been intense rumors online claiming that we will soon get a new AMD video card under the Radeon R9 380X brand name. The new card will fill in some gaps in AMD’s video card product line or so the plan is.
It now seems that the rumors are correct and that there will, indeed, be a Radeon R9 380X graphics card. The adapter is scheduled to arrive in October of this year and according to the preliminary information that we have it will be based on AMD’s Tonga XT GPU packing 2048 stream processors, 128 TMUs and 32 ROPs. The video card will also have 4 GB of GDDR5 memory and a 256-bit memory bus, down from the expected 384-bit bus but still very capable of offering tons of memory bandwidth.
The AMD Radeon R9 380X will be launched around the world in the next few weeks. Its price is unknown as of now.
