Radeon R9 390X may be very expensive

There has been a lot of hype lately regarding the upcoming AMD Radeon R9 390X video card. The graphics card is expected to come with a number of innovative technologies, tons of raw power under the hood and support for all latest visual features and functions. Unfortunately it appears that due to all these features the Radeon R9 390X will be very expensive – preliminary estimates place the card at more than USD 700 mainly due to the usage of the fast but costly HBM memory. The card is also expected to provide more performance than the Radeon R9 290X but less than what the Radeon R9 295X2 is capable of.

There’s some hope for the slower cards of the same generation – the upcoming Radeon R9 390 will sell for USD 700 and will be faster than the R9 290X but slower than the Radeon R9 295X2. The Radeon R9 380X will sell for USD 400 and will be faster than the R9 290; the R9 380 version will sell for USD 330 and will be faster than the Radeon R9 290; the Radeon R9 370 will cost you USD 200 and will provide performance that sits between Radeon R9 270X and Radeon R9 285. Finally we will have the Radeon R7 360X (USD 150, performance comparable to that of Radeon R7 265) and Radeon R7 360 (USD 110, performance between R7 250X and R7 260X).

The new graphics card family is expected to arrive this summer with only the Radeon R9 390X and R9 390 being provided with HBM memory. This is obvious, given the cost of these two cards. Keep in mind, however, that all these prices are unofficial.
