AMD Radeon R9 370X Will be a Rebrand of the R9 270X Graphics Card
The latest news for Advanced Micro Devices is that the company is planning to launch a new budget-friendly graphics card out of its Radeon 300 series. The upcoming card is Radeon R9 370X, and if the new report is to be believed, it’s essentially a rebrand of the Radeon R9 270X graphics card.
According to Expreview, the sample they received for the R9 370X, features the Trinidad XT graphics core – the same as Pitcairn XT from AMD’s previous generation which first surfaced on the scene in 2012. The card packs 1280 stream processors, 80 TMUs and 32 ROPs.
As for core clocks, Expreview suggests that the reference models might have the same speeds as the Radeon R9 270X which were 1000 MHz for base and 1050 MHz for boost clock speeds.
The R9 370X features a 256-bit bus memory and might come in both 2 GB and 4 GB GDDR5 variants. The card will use dual 6-Pin connectors to get powered up with a TDP around 150W.
There are no details on pricing yet, but we can expect the Radeon R9 370X retail to cost around $179 US.
The Radeon R9 370X is designed to take on NVIDIA’s GTX 950 which should hit retail stores within the next two weeks. While AMD dominates the low-mid budget GPU segment, it would be interesting to see if Nvidia could shake its thus successful legacy.
