AMD reportedly working on Radeon R9 380X to target sub-$300 segment


According to a report published by Chinese website EXPreview, AMD is working on a new Tonga based graphics card, dubbed the R9 380X. Spy shots showing the XFX Radeon R9 380X have also been leaked.

The Radeon R9 380X will target the sub-$300 segment, so it isn’t really going to face much of a competition from NVIDIA. Since AMD is looking at the price point between the GeForce GTX 960 and the GTX 970, gamers would have a new option to consider in case they do not wish stretch their budget for the GTX 970.


AMD Radeon R9 380X will be based on the company’s 28nm “Tonga” silicon and utilize the latest GCN 1.2 architecture. Although it hasn’t been confirmed yet, the card could offer 2,048 stream processors, 128 TMUs, 32 ROPs, and 3 or 6GB video memory on a 384-bit wide GDDR5 interface. It could also be offered with 4GB of memory on a 256-bit GDDR5 memory interface as the R9 380.


XFX is ready with a R9 380X card already, as you can see in the pictures above. The card will come with a “Double Dissipation” cooling solution with an aluminum fin-stack heatsink and four 8mm thick nickel-plated copper heat pipes.
