New report from HardwareBattle suggest Radeon R9 380X is ready for launch.

AMD Radeon R9 380X to cost $249

The latest addition to Radeon 300 series codenamed Antigua XT will start shipping in just 10 days. According to Korean website R9 380X equipped with full Tonga/Antigua graphics processor will cost just $249, which is the exact same price Radeon R9 285 used to cost at launch.

Antigua is a new codename for Tonga processor, which was exclusively available in full version only with new iMacs as R9 M295X (codenamed Amethyst).

The Radeon R9 380X will feature 2048 Stream Processors, 4GB GDDR5 memory and 256-bit interface. Earlier reports suggesting that full Tonga GPU could actually have 384-bit bus were most likely inaccurate.

The reference clock speeds were not yet confirmed, but the card is expected to run at 1000+ MHz frequency.

The NDA on the specs will lift on November 15th, whereas the embargo date for custom models will end 4 days later on November 19th. HWB confirm XFX, Sapphire, Gigabyte and PowerColor will all have their cards ready.
