AMD Radeon R9 285 Clock Speeds and Pricing Revealed

It's confirmed the GeForce GTX 760 really is on AMD's crosshair's with the Radeon R9 285. Based on the 28 nm "Tonga" silicon, which is designed to offer "Tahiti" like performance at the energy-efficiency levels comparable to NVIDIA's GK104, the R9 285 features 1,792 Graphics CoreNext stream processors, 112 TMUs, 32 ROPs, and 256-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface, holding 2 GB or 4 GB of memory. The card will feature clock speeds of 918 MHz core, 5.50 GHz memory. AMD claims the R9 285 will be up to 15 percent faster than the GeForce GTX 760. It will start at US $249, with partners coming out with custom-designs on day-one (September 2nd, 2014).

So this is basically right in-between a 7870 and a 7950...
Thats a pretty tricky spot to be right now.

Based on what I've seen it's above an R9 280 (hd 7950) but lower power.


Will be interesting to see some gaming benchmarks.

Question.
Techpower up and others
R9 280 TDP 200W

Anandtech, Tom's Hardware and others
R9 280 TDP 250W

What is the correct???
250W? Then Tonga is OK.
200W? Then Tonga is almost no improvement in power efficiency.

Techpowerup as I said writes 200W

but AMD says 250W
