AMD: Fiji + Water = Radeon R9 390X WCE?

Published: 6th May 2015, 20:00 GMT

Did AMD just indirectly gave us a hint for Fiji cooling solution?

Okay I know what you think, just two water bottles and crazy assumptions, but this just can’t be a coincidence..

Fiji + Water, is R9 390 watercooled?

If you are not sure what to look at, take a look at the table with two Fiji branded water bottles. Fiji is the codename of next-gen GPU, that will power Radeon R9 390 series. The idea of advertising water-cooling this way is not new, AMD did the same thing with Radeon R9 295X2, where they sent out two cans of chips and Hawaii water bottle to reviewers.

I wonder what two Fiji bottles mean, two GPUs? Are they launching R9 395X2 too? Or maybe they are closing graphics department and focusing on water distribution now? What you guys think? :)

Of course the idea of watercooled Radeon R9 390 series is not new. In fact we posted this slide few weeks ago. It does seem that we were right — Radeon R9 390X WCE might actually happen.

In case you forgot where it all came from…
