Yesterday we reported on an alleged leak on the upcoming AMD Radeon R9 390X graphics card. Today, more information has surfaced on the card from the very same source. This time, the full alleged specifications of the R9 390X have been revealed.
According to the leaked info, the Radeon R9 390X will come with a total of 4096 stream processors, with a memory clock speed of 1250MHz. As reported earlier, the card will include 8GB of HBM memory, with 2GB per stack through Dual-Link. The compute performance of Radeon R9 390X is said to be 8.6 TFLOPS, higher than even the recently revealed NVIDIA Titan X.
The leaked slide reveals that the new HDM memory on the R9 390X will boast of ‘drastically increased power efficiency versus GDDR5’. Other advantages of the new HBM memory are said to decreased GPU Die complexity and higher memory bandwidth in excess of 1TB/s. The card will also be the world’s first discrete GPU with full DirectX 12 implementation.
Moving on to performance, one of the slides shows the performance improvements the R9 390X brings when compared to its predecessor – R9 290X when gaming at 4K resolution. In various games such as Battlefield 4, Far Cry 4, Tomb Raider, and Alien Invasion, the R9 390X around 1.5-1.6x the performance of its predecessor.
If these slides are indeed genuine, then AMD is definitely going to have a winner in their hands as so far the R9 390X is shaping up to be an even more impressive card than the NVIDIA GTX Titan X.
