Club3D RoyalQueen R9 280X VS MSI R9 280X Gaming
Today we're going to review two very sharp priced graphics cards based on the same reference card, the R9 280X. AMD has been dropping prices on gpu's like the R9 270X/280/280X because of their new upcoming release in August. Due to this pricedrop, the R9 280X has become a very valuable graphics card that can handle all games at 1080p if I'm not mistaken. The Tahiti architecture's age counts some ages already, but it's still a very capable architecture for today's gaming. With a pricetag around 250 Euros, this card has become one of the most awesome pirce/perfomance options, it also includes a never settle GOLD reward coming directly from AMD.

The Chinese VR Zone (and related on Videocardz) has revealed that there should arrive a Tonga replacement for the Tahiti PRO core which is supported by the R9 280. The performance is expected to be inbetween the Tahiti XT and Tahiti PRO cores. Of course the power efficiency should be far better than the one featured on the Tahiti and Hawaii architectures.
