More AMD Radeon R9 390X Specifications Leaked

Following on from earlier rumoured leak of the R9 300 series cooling and card length, it seems the specification of the highly anticipated R9 390x has slipped as well.

From earlier, we know that the R9 390x is rumoured to ship with two options of cooling, the first a typical air cooling design similar to what AMD currently produce; however, the second appears to be no longer than the NVIDIA GTX 970 reference design PCB and will include a similar cooling feature to the current R9 295×2. The new High Bandwidth Memory (HBM) has been integrated onto the GPU core, which is how AMD has managed to squeeze all of the features onto such a small PCB design.

Now onto the specification:

“The Fiji XT-enabled R9 390X is said to feature 8GB video memory, GCN 1.2 architecture, 4,096 stream processors, 256 TMUs, 128 ROPs, and a 4096-bit wide interface resulting in a total bandwidth of 640GB/s.”

If these specifications are true, it will be based on a very similar architecture to the R9 285 and aims to be more powerful than the R9 295×2; very impressive for a single GPU, short PCB card.

Are you looking forward to the launch in approximately a month time? I personally can’t wait to get my hands on the R9 390x, especially if the specs and water cooling is as rumoured. Let us know your thoughts in the comments.

Thank you to VRworld for providing us with this information.
