/ 7 years ago


On its German Facebook Page MSI recently showed off pictures of two upcoming cards which will be part of AMD’s new R9 2XX series. VideoCardz claims that these are the R9 280X Gaming at the front, and the R9 270X HAWK at the back. According to VideoCardz The MSI R9 270X Hawk has 2GB of memory, a $199 price, the Curacao XT GPU (Pitcairn renamed) and a 256 bit interface.

The MSI R9 280X Gaming GPU is based on AMD’s old HD 7970. VideoCardz say it features the same clocks as the HD 7970 GHz Edition graphics card on the core and turbo but features a slightly slower 5.5GHz on the memory, compared to 6GHz on the HD 7970 GHz.  Both cards are using MSI’s dual 10cm Twin Frozr IV cooler that makes use of MSI’s propeller blade technology. Military Class 4 components are also equipped. On the MSI R9 280X there are apparently two 8 pins and a TDP of 253W with two mini-DP, HDMI and DVI-I outputs.
