MSI Announces Radeon R9 280 Gaming

MSI finally launched its first Radeon R9 280 graphics card, flashing its Gaming Series branding. Based on an otherwise identical board design to that of the R9 280X Gaming, the card features MSI's Twin Frozr IV cooling solution. It offers factory-overclocked speeds of 933 MHz core, 1000 MHz boost, and 5.00 GHz memory. Based on the 28 nm "Tahiti" silicon, the Radeon R9 280 offers 1,792 stream processors, 112 TMUs, 32 ROPs, and a 384-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface, holding 3 GB of memory. The card draws power from a combination of 6-pin and 8-pin PCIe power connectors, display outputs include two mini-DisplayPort connectors, two dual-link DVI, and an HDMI connector. Expect this one to go for around $280.

This is great MSI, no word on a R7 265 Twin Frorz yet decided to make a GTX 750Ti which didn't even need it at ALL.
