AMD Radeon 300 Series GPU Prices Leaked Ahead of Official Reveal
AMD Radeon 300 series of graphics cards will soon hit the market but AMD has kept its silence so far regarding the price point for different models. However, thanks to some leaked information, we may have the final pricing for the 300 series cards.
- Enthusiast – R9 390X 8GB – Enhanced Hawaii XT – $389
- Enthusiast – R9 390 8GB – Enhanced Hawaii Pro – $329
- Performance – R9 380X 3GB/6GB(NOT CONFIRMED) – Tonga XT – N/A
- Performance – R9 380 4GB – Tonga Pro – $235
- Performance – R9 380 2GB – Tonga Pro – $195
- Performance – R7 370 4GB – Pitcairn – $175
- Performance – R7 370 2GB – Pitcairn – $135
- Performance – R7 360 2GB – Bonaire – $107
Strangely, AMD’s Fiji technology is no where to be seen. However, the aggressive pricing is surely an attraction and will tempt even Nvidia fans to pick up an AMD card.
The above listed R9 390X is going to replace the R9 290X, and will surely be faster. If we compare it to the GTX 970, the doubling of the available VRAM will give it an edge over the 970, but the recently announced 980 Ti is a different beast.
The R9 390 may also be of interest for fans as it is over a $100 cheaper yet features the same amount of VRAM as the 390X.
Nvidia recently showed its new GTX 980 Ti and before its arrival many speculated that it may feature an 8GB VRAM. However, that isn’t the case and for now, none of the Nvidia cards feature 8GB memory. AMD is the first to do so which means Nvidia may not be too far behind as well.
