AMD Announces the Radeon R7 300 Series

AMD officially announced the Radeon R7 300 series mid-range graphics cards. Designed to make MOBA and MMORPG gaming at 1080p resolution affordable, the two occupy sub-$150 price points. The R7 360 packs in 768 stream processors based on the Graphics CoreNext architecture, with 48 TMUs and 16 ROPs. It offers 2 GB of GDDR5 memory, across the chip's 128-bit wide memory interface. The Radeon R7 370, offers 1,024 stream processors, 64 TMUs, 32 ROPs, and 2 GB or 4 GB of GDDR5 memory, across a 256-bit wide memory interface. Both cards draw power from single 6-pin PCIe power connectors, with board power of under 110W.

A HD 7850 is about as fast as a GTX 570, which is about as fast as a HD 6970, so I'd assume that HD 7850 (aka R7 265 aka R7 370) is faster than the HD 5870. It also has the big VRAM advantage.

But yeah, this rebranding is pretty sad. It should beat the GTX 750 Ti though, if we exclude the ~40W higher power consumption.

Next year all rebrands are off when 14nm GPUs come. I actually prefer rebrands when it comes to APUs or CPUs because incremental performance upgrades are not worth new socket.

Wow, I praised Pitcarin when it was launched, but I didn't realize that it was over 3 years ahead of its time!
