AMD has released five new GPUS following their new naming scheme. They released R7 GPU’s which are lower end and lower budget, than the R9 GPU’s which are higher end and higher budget. Makes sense right?

Here is a list of the announced GPUs. 3DMark is a bench marking software. For comparison the GTX Titan (top of the line single GPU from Nvidia) scores around 10,000.

AMD Radeon R7 250

  • VRAM: 1GB GDDR
  • Price: <$89
  • 3DMark Firestrike: >2000

AMD Radeon R7 260X

  • VRAM: 2GB GDDR
  • Price: $139
  • 3DMark Firestrike: >3700

AMD Radeon R9 270X

AMD Radeon R9 280X

AMD Radeon R9 290X

There is little known about the R9 290X, however you can preorder it on Oct. 3rd. Which includes Battlefield 4 for free. Battlefield 4 releases on Oct. 29th. So we can assume the Graphics cards will release soon after. We will keep you updated as more information comes in.
