AMD officially announces its R9 300 and R7 300 GPUs at E3 2015

AMD has introduced Its Next Generation Radeons during E3

AMD finally revealed its 300-series Radeons at its ‘New Era of PC Gaming’ event. The 300 series are basically derived from the 200-series models but offer improvements across the board with a performance boost of up to 5% as compared to the similarly numbered last generation cards.

The 300-series models include the R7 360, R7 370, R9 380 and R9 390. All of these cards house a relatively modest looking cooler that should keep the price factor in check. The main center of attention was the big reveal of its flagship line up, Fury. AMD claims that its top-end model, the Fury X features 8.6 TFLOPS of single-precision performance which if compared to Nvidia’s top of the line Nvidia GTX Titan X is 2.6 TFLOPS greater. Count in another 2.6 billion transistors if you’re comparing it with the 290X.

AMD was certainly not short of words when it came to performance per watt of Fury claiming that it now features a 50 percent increase in performance while retaining the same power efficiency. Another feature of Fury worth bragging about is its High Band Memory which AMD claims to be much faster than DDR4 and offering 3x more performance per watt than GDDR5. It also features 3D memory which leads less space requirement and hence allowing AMD to use 94 percent less PCB for memory purpose. This also helps the Fury X line up to contain itself in a 7.5 inch form factor.

These new Fury X cards should hit shelves on June 24 and shall be priced at $649 whereas the regular Fury is set for release on July 14 and shall set you back $549.
