Slides leaked from an official release release show all you need to know about AMD's new flagship product: unprecedented bandwidth memory, Cooling Water and tremendous performance
After more than half a year of rumors, leaks, reports and predictions, It seems that the launch of a new video card leads fromI HAVE D Is at last just around the corner.
The network has received a host of new slides, ostensibly straight from an official launch presentation by the chip developer, which presents (almost) all the details that interest us about the Radeon R9 390X - the first bud in a new era both for I HAVE D, And perhaps also for the entire graphic processing market.
According to the new information, the R9 390X will offer a Fuji XT core based on the old 28 nanometer manufacturing process, just like the current generation of NVIDIA, with no less than 4,096 processing units40 is more than the current R9 290X), A maximum maximum working frequency of up to 1.05GHz, a thermal envelope that will probably not exceed 300 watts (based on the required power connections), 256 texture units, 112 Rasterization units, full support In DirectX 12 And Mantle - and a dedicated version that you come up with Cooling water.
All of the above data is quite impressive and should give R9 390X Maximum performance of 8.6TeraFLOPS (fifty percent more than those of R9 290X And even more 40 percent From the fearsome Titan X, So to speak), but the real star here is without a shadow of a doubt The graphic memory - for the first time in a commercial product will be HB-High Bandwidth Memory (SK-Hynix), Meaning that all memory chips will be stacked together in a three-dimensional technology on a single-substrate basis, providing a significantly larger bandwidth with reduced physical space and even more modest power consumption.
According to the data in the presentation, the memory of the HBM on the R9 390X will be 8GB and will offer a bandwidth of not less than 640 GB per second for the card's Fiji XT core - twice the R9 290X and any other video card that exists In the market more or less. There is no doubt that this is a huge leap that undoubtedly helps the R9 390X to realize its impressive performance potential - and there is no doubt that we will soon see the adoption of three-dimensional memory technologies in a wide interface even in the hardware components of the competitors, NVIDIA Which has already approved the adoption of the method in its future Pascal generation Intel Which has already made a very similar use of its built-in memory in its advanced Iris Pro core.
We now have only two significant question marks left - when the R9 390X comes to us, and how much this pleasure will cost us. Official and verified answers to these questions are not yet available, but the prevailing estimates are thatI HAVE D Take advantage of the world's largest hardware conference, 2015 in June, to unveil (and possibly launch) the new, advanced card. The price, according to estimates, will be affected by the establishment of a massive core and an innovative HBM memory, which will amount to about $ 700. Very expensive for a single-hearted card - though if the performance is talking about I HAVE D Will prove to be accurate, the R9 390X will actually be a very lucrative card that will make a double Core Like the R9 295X2 and theTitan Z to redden with shame.
As always, we will continue to wait for more details and we will update you accordingly.
