HIS R9 280X IceQX2 Turbo

his280x_top

HIS is one of the companies that have been partner with AMD for a long time and always released new interesting cards as new GPU’s are released. With the release of the new fall-GPU’s from AMD we get a full spread of products and today we are testing the HIS R9 280X IceQ2 Turbo card. As the name implies this is a card that not only comes with the latest version of HIS special IceQ-cooler but also is pre-overclocked from the box.  The R9 280X uses the Tahiti GPU and is basically a HD7970 GHz edition card with a new name. With 3 GB memory though it has more headroom for higher resolutions and that for a price around $300.

Sapphire Radeon R9-280X Toxic

Feature

Sapphire Radeon R9-280X Toxic Sapphire Has been AMDs premier partner for a long time now so it was only natural that when the new AMD R Series cards launched that we would have one with Sapphires special touches in hand rather quickly. The model we have in hand is a R9-280X model which is a 7970 GHz model but its a Sapphire Toxic model which means it is their top clocked model. Being a 3GB model card we know that it is ready for high resolution and AA gaming and even crossfire up to 4 cards for maximum performance especially when pushing multiple high resolution displays. The Sapphire Radeon R9-280X Toxic model comes with a MSRP of $349 which places it about 50 dollars above some other models such as the MSI gaming series card we also received. However this Toxic series is highly clocked and is one heck of ... Read More »

MSI Radeon R9-280X 3GB Graphics Card

Feature

MSI Radeon R9-280X Gaming MSI as always dresses to impress with its non reference designs and well with the Radeon R series of cards there is no mistaking a MSI card from the rest as they carry very distinctive cooler designs and honestly when first seeing this card I was at a loss to tell it apart from the Nvidia 770 version I had tested some time ago when looking at it from the fans side. However once you get past the fans and shroud designs that is where the similarities end. The Radeon R series cards for the most part are actually a relaunch of the previous gen cards for the most part with only the top end R9-290X actually being an entirely new Hawaii based GPU. This is not necessarily a bad thing though as with this refresh or relaunch so to speak AMD has dropped the price ... Read More »

AMD 2014 Embedded Roadmap: Steamroller and GCN for for high-end, a GCN based GPU, and ARM SOC

AMD_Roadmap_2014_Page_09

Fall is here and that means that tech companies are launching new products and revealing plans for 2014. AMD kicks off its plan for 2014 with its embedded chip as it is one of the fastest growing market. AMD plans to release four family of products targeting different market segments. On the high-end, we got “Bald Eagle” that will come with which either two or four Steamroller CPU paired with HD 9000 series GPU based on the graphics core next (GCN) architecture. The APU carries 17~35W TDP. It will replace the current R-Series APU with the Piledriver CPU and HD 7000 GPU. Based on what we have seen with the Streamroller desktop APU, we can expect up to 10% improvement on the CPU front. The upgrade to the GCN architecture on the GPU should bring performance boost but more importantly, it will be able to better utilize GPU for compute. ... Read More »
