AMD Radeon R9 300 series are just around the corner. 

Exclusive: Confirmed rebrands of AMD Radeon 300 series

More and more leaks confirm what we were telling you for the past few weeks. Radeon 300 series are essentially rebranded cards from Radeon 200 series. Only FIJI will be new GPU in the series. In fact FIJI might just get it’s own series, just like NVIDIA’s TITAN.

Here’s a list of all confirmed rebrands from Radeon 200 series to 300 series. There are three Curacao parts, one Bonaire, one Tonga and two Hawaiis.

AMD6658.1AMD Radeon(TM) R7 360 GraphicsBonaire XTX [Radeon R7 260X]
AMD67B0.1AMD Radeon R9 300 SeriesHawaii XT [Radeon R9 290X]
AMD67B1.1AMD Radeon R9 300 SeriesHawaii PRO [Radeon R9 290]
AMD6810.1AMD Radeon(TM) R7 370 GraphicsCuracao XT [Radeon R9 270X]
AMD6810.2AMD Radeon (TM) R7 300 SeriesCuracao XT [Radeon R9 270X]
AMD6811.1AMD Radeon (TM) R7 300 SeriesCuracao PRO [Radeon R9 270/370]
AMD6939.1AMD Radeon R9 300 SeriesTonga PRO [Radeon R9 285]

FIJI was not included in this driver release. Radeon R9 Hawaii is neither shown as R9 380 nor as R9 390. Right now it’s just R9 300, just like R9 285-rebrand. Both Hawaii cards will get a small bump in clock speeds and most importantly 8GB memory.

ASUS confirms Radeon R9 390X to feature 8GB memory

Meanwhile, ASUS is busy preparing the new stickers for Radeon 300 series. One of such stickers would allegedly be applied to Radeon R9 390X. We still don’t know if Radeon R9 390X is in fact rebranded R9 290X, but so far there is simply no reason to believe otherwise.

The list of ASUS Radeon 300 series has now been updated with ASUS R9390X-DC2-8GD5. What’s interesting, on the same page you can already see the listing of GTX 960 with DirectCU 3 cooler. Why would ASUS not use DC3 cooler for Radeon 300 series? Here’s a list of all confirmed ASUS Radeon 300 cards via WCCFTech:

  • ASUS R9390X-DC2-8GD5
  • ASUS  STRIX-R9380-OC-2GD5
  • ASUS  STRIX-R9370-OC-4GD5
  • ASUS  STRIX-R7360X-DC2OC2-2GD5
  • ASUS  R7360-2GD5
