A few people have apparently taking a closer look into AMD’s latest Catalyst driver, the 15.3 beta. They apparently have found a few new entries leading to the upcoming Rx 300 series of graphics cards.

Some information here reveals some bad news for gamers who wanted a new chip in the latest Rx 300. The information points that the new cards are just some respin products, meaning that older GPUs will be used on new PCBs and BIOS, often polished with a subtle clock frequency increase.

Comparing the device ID’s found in the Catalyst driver to previous generations reveals that older GPUs are in use for the upcoming cards up to the R9 370.

  • AMD665F.1 = “AMD Radeon R9 360″
  • AMD6610.2 = “AMD Radeon(TM) R7 350X”
  • AMD6610.3 = “AMD Radeon(TM) R5 340X”
  • AMD6611.10 = “AMD Radeon R7 340″
  • AMD665F.1 = “AMD Radeon R9 360″
  • AMD6660.1 = “AMD Radeon(TM) R5 M330″
  • AMD6660.2 = “AMD Radeon(TM) R5 M330″
  • AMD6660.3 = “AMD Radeon(TM) R5 M330″
  • AMD6778.8 = “AMD Radeon R5 310″
  • AMD6811.1 = “AMD Radeon R9 370″

The above reveals that the Radeon R9 370 would be Trinidad, also found in HD 7870 and 265/270/270X products. The Radeon R9 360 Tobago would use Bonaire with 896 shader processors and Radeon R7 350X, R7 340 and R5 340X would use the Oland with 384 stream processors.

The R9 380 and R9 390 have yet to show up, but taking into account the respin mentioned above, a logical speculation would be that they will feature the Hawaii found in 290 and 290X graphics cards. However, this is just a speculation, so take it with a pinch of salt.
