AMD Announce R9 2XX And R7 2XX Series Graphics Cards

/ 3 years ago


At the GPU 14 event (which you can watch live coverage of here) AMD announced its newest series of graphics cards with the R9 290X, R9 280X and R9 270X all forming the R9 series and the R7 260X and R7 250 forming the R7 series.


AMD briefly details the amount of GDDR5 memory, the price point and the estimated 3DMark Firestrike score of all the new GPUs.




However, the star of the show is AMD’s Radeon R9 290X – the newest addition to the AMD Graphics card family based off a brand new GCN 2.0 architecture. This beast from AMD is revealed but sadly very few details have been disclosed so far. We will of course bring you those A.S.A.P, if AMD reveal them, as we continue our coverage.

    With no Crossfire connection old style I guess this is only something for people with newer motherboards. Sorry but I won’t be buying new motherboards anytime soon and I am not interested in a 1 card solution for my son’s pc.

    • No Crossfire on what?
