AMD R9 380X Listed on PowerColor, Features ‘Antigua XT’ GPU and 4 GB GDDR5 VRAM
The AMD R9 380X has just appeared listed on the PowerColor website, showing that the new graphics card will arrive in the consumer market within the next few weeks.
The early posting over at the AIB’s official home page confirms previous reports that the R9 380x will feature an ‘Antigua XT’ GPU, which is a tweaked version of the previously known Tonga XT chip.
Rumors surrounding the Radeon R9 380X have been making rounds for quite a while. The Antigua XT based graphics card will pack 2048 steam processors with 32 compute units, 128 texture mapping units (TMUs), and 32 raster operation units (ROPS).
Built on the latest GCN 1.2 iteration, the card is said to feature 4 GB of GDDR5 VRAM with 256-bit bus interface as opposed to the larger 384-bit bus interface which the GPU allegedly sports. Further, it will offer fully compliant Vulkan API and DirectX 12 API support so that users could take advantage of the latest APIs.
Display outputs on the card will include Dual-Link DVI, HDMI 1.4 and a Display Port 1.2 output. No specifics regarding the core or memory clock speeds are revealed. Price of the card isn’t mentioned either, but it is expected to set you back around the $300 mark.
We’ll keep an out out and let you know when more information comes out.
