Rumour: Radeon R9 280X, R9 270X and R7 260X Launching On October 8th

/ 6 years ago


VideoCardz reports that the NDA of the AMD R9 280X, pictured above, lifts on October 8th meaning we should see reviews published on that day next week. Apparently AMD will also allow after-market cooling solution based cards to be shown a few days later – ensuring that the launch is reserved for the AMD cards only. The embargo date for the AMD R9 270X and R7 260X is apparently also October the 8th according to TechPowerUp. Reviews for those are expected to go live on the same day and all three cards are reported to have both reference and non-reference models available.

VideoCardz also cited Chinese sources stating that a mysterious announcement from AMD is happening between October 12th and 20th in Beijing, China. It is supposedly going to be the official showcase of the R9 and R7 graphics cards from China’s main AMD graphics card vendors – Onda, Sapphire, PowerColor, HIS Digital, XFX or Unika.
