Next month NVIDIA will release a new video card called GeForce GTX 950, which we discussed yesterday. The new NVIDIA product will compete in the budget market segment and this might foil AMD’s plans for a bigger market share.
To combat the GTX 950 AMD will soon release a new graphics card that will be called Radeon R7 370X. The card will be based on a Trinidad XT graphics chip, which means the R7 370X will offer 1280 Graphics Core Next stream processors, 80 TMUs and 32 ROPs. Things will get even sweeter when you find out that the R7 370X will have a 256-bit memory bus and 2 GB or 4 GB of GDDR5 memory. The card will likely run at the same clock speeds the R9 270X offered, which means the GPU will run at 1180 MHz, while the memory will operate at 5.60 GHz (effective), pushing 179.2 GB/sec of data.
Given that the GTX 950 will be out next month, we will likely see the R7 370X in the same time period.
