AMD Flagship R9 390x

Submitted by Syed Immad Ali on Wed, 05/20/2015 - 19:23

The anticipated r9 390x from Advanced Miro Devices (AMD), will soon hit the market in mid or late June. Many AMD fans have been hoping to have a new replacement to the Titan X, with a huge price tag of 1000$. AMD will be announcing the r9 380x and below on the 18 of June and the R9 390/x being announced on the 24 of June. However, AMD might skip those dates and release the R9 3xx series of GPUS at either Coputex or E3, which is highly unlikely. So far, the leaked benchmarks of the 390x have been surprising, benching better than NVIDIA's flagship Titan X. But, one thing still remains unanswered. The price. Currently, it is rumured that the official MSRP for the 390x 4 gigabyte HBM model will be 850$. Very close to the Titan X. However, the monster 395x2 has yet to get a price. But, judging off the the rumored MSRP of the 390x, it will be near the 2000$ range as the it is expected that the only the 395x2 will have the 8 gigabytes of HBM.
