Along with the launch of the Radeon R9 Nano, AMD unveiled the Radeon R9 370X, designed to go up against Nvidia’s entry-level GTX 950. From the specs, it looks like the R9 370X is a tweaked version of the 28nm Pitcairn silicon, sporting 1,280 stream processors, 80 TMUs and 32 ROPs. The card will be available with either 2GB or 4GB of GDDR5 on a 256-bit bus, with factory-overclocked versions likely offering more memory out of the box.
AMD commented on the low-key launch of the card, stating: “The R9 370X is regionalized product which is today limited to the China market.” However, it is likely that the vendor will be announcing the card in Western markets, considering that Nvidia unveiled its $150 GTX 950 just a few days earlier. While the R9 270X was found to hold its own against the GTX 950, suggesting that the R9 370X should do the same, the card won’t be able to support newer technologies like HDMI 2.0.
