The red manufacturer is competing with the GeForce GTX 950,Radeon HD 7870 is equipped with a new color layer
Alongside the stunning but pretentious R9 Nano, AMD has also launched a very quiet (very) official launch for the new Radeon R9 370X video card, designed to be a direct competition for the new GeForce GTX 950 NVIDIA.
The 370X is based on the Trinindad XT core with 1,280 processing units in the old GCN 1.0 architecture - and this is actually the same Pitcairn XT core that accompanies us from the 2012 year, first named Radeon HD 7870 and until recently also named Radeon R9 270X.
According to the bit of information available on the network, it appears that the Radeon R9 370X will be offered at slightly higher operating frequencies than we have seen in the previous two generations (1,150 to 1,200 MHz for core, compared to 1,000 to 1,050 MHz in most cases in the past), and at a slightly higher starting price. A modest 180 dollar - which should help make it a more competitive and lucrative offer, at a modest difference. Will it be enough to put some pressure on the GTX 950 and GTX 960 on both sides when it comes to price? For the survival of AMD And for the benefit of all of us, let us hope so.
