AMD is about to take advantage with its new SKU on the vast pricing price gap between GTX 960 and GTX 970, and to bolster its sub-$300 lineup with its new Radeon R9380X. This SKU will be based on the 28 nm “Tonga” silicon, which implements the latest Graphics CoreNext 1.2 architecture which could max out the specifications of the “Tonga” silicon, offering 2,048 stream processors spread across 32 compute units, 128 TMUs, 32 ROPs, and a 384-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface, holding either 3 GB or 6 GB of memory Bandwidth.
Another Theory pins with the R9 380X as a chip with 2.048 stream processor, as the same as 256-bit GDDR5 memory interface of R9 380 with 4 GB memory letting AMD it to keep it low priced. And XFX to be ready with A “Double Dissipation” card based on R9 380X. The card’s new-generation Double Dissipation cooler features an aluminium fin-stack heatsink with four 8 mm thick nickel-plated copper heat pipes, and a pair of 100 mm spinners, which are easily detachable, making it easier to clean the heat-sink below it. It’s Production has been started in a large quantity and is expected to be launched soon.
