It has been known for a few weeks now that AMD will be debuting its new Radeon 300 series graphics cards at the Computex 2015 event in June. Yesterday we learnt that many of the new cards in the upcoming lineup could simply be rebrands. Today the names of the new GPUs have been leaked courtesy our sister site Chinese VR-Zone.
The new GPUs expected to be announced by AMD at Computex will be Fiji, Grenada, Antigua, Trinidad, and Tobago. Fiji is expected to be the new flagship GPU, a direct successor to the Hawaii GPU used on the Radeon 290 series cards. Hawaii itself will continue as Grenada, a simple case of rebranding. Similarly, Antigua GPU will simply be rebranded Tonga.
As far as Trinidad and Tobago are concerned, things aren’t quite as clear but it does look like Tobago will be a new GPU while Trinidad will be similar to or simply a rebranded Pitcairn GPU.
All benchmarks of the AMD Radeon R9 390X have been quite encouraging so far, with a healthy lead in performance over NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 980 card. So while most of the cards in the upcoming Radeon 300 series may not be particularly impressive, the flagship R9 390X is sure to impress.
