AMD quietly introduced Radeon R9 370X
In addition to the compact high-end graphics card Radeon R9 Nano AMD, it seems, has introduced another model. Rumors on the Radeon R9 370X went a few weeks , but officially it is not called. Only today released the first video card partners. In particular, Sapphire introduced the Radeon R9 370X Vapor-X.

Video Card Radeon R9 370X is based on the GPU Trinidad with 1,280 stream processors, 80 texture units, 32 raster operations pipelines and 256-bit memory interface. Of course, we have an old acquaintance GPU Pitcairn. AMD has provided partners the freedom to choose 2 or 4 GB of video memory. Official clock frequencies AMD is not called, so we can only talk about the frequencies selected Sapphire. The card operates at a frequency of 1.200 MHz to GPU, memory frequency of 1,400 MHz. As a result, the memory bandwidth of 179 GB / s. Extra power is supplied via two 6-pin PCI Express, so that the video card with PCI Express slot can theoretically consume up to 225 watts. On the slot plug has two dual-output DVI, one HDMI 1.4 and DisplayPort 1.2a.

As we have noted above , more information about the Radeon R9 370X yet. The card is designed to compete with the GeForce GTX 950 and 960. The model previously released Radeon R9 370 is too slow, and the Radeon R9 380 AMD positions is not entirely successful. The video card Radeon R9 370X AMD passes with naming scheme R7 to R9, which adds to the confusion. So far not announced any release date on the market, nor the price.

We have requested additional information from AMD about the new graphics card Radeon R9 370X or possible error Sapphire. Of course, the video ads would be a surprise. But with her new AMD starts to complicate its range of graphics cards. At the moment, we have received six cards from the mass market to high-end segment: Radeon R7 360, R7 370, R9 370X, R9 380 R9 390 and R9 390X. And we have not added a line of Fury video card Radeon R9 Nano.
