Its existence has been well documented in the rumour circle but has yet to be officially acknowledged by AMD although the company has announced that it will talk more about the next generation Radeon GPUs on 16 June at E3 2015. Nevertheless, this is most probably one of the best leak so far regarding the upcoming Radeon R9 390X since it came from a major manufacturer – XFX.
What we are looking here is XFX’s version of the new graphics card as clearly indicated by the R9 390 X moniker on its box. These images which were posted under the official page of XFX R9 290X Double Dissipation Edition earlier this week also stated that the new card will carry 8 GB GDDR5 memory and a copy of DiRT Rally. These images have since been replaced with the correct product.
In terms of specifications, plenty of tales within the rumour circle stated that the Radeon R9 390X is not based on the new “Fiji” GPU but instead it is actually an enhanced version of previous Radeon GPU – codenamed “Hawaii” – that was used on R9 290X. Fiji will apparently be used on another graphics card family called Radeon Fury instead.
Well, let’s see how true this rumour will be next week then whereby AMD is expected to reveal the new line-up of its next generation Radeon graphics cards.
