AMD Launches Radeon R9 380, Radeon R9 370 and Radeon R9 360 For OEMs – Based on Tonga, Pitcairn and Bonaire
AMD has launched three new graphics card based around the Radeon R300 OEM family which include the Radeon R9 380, Radeon R9 370 and Radeon R9 360 cards. The three graphics cards are part of the OEM line that will be integrated inside OEM PCs built by the likes of HP, Lenovo and several others. It should also be noted that HP was the first to official confirm the Radeon R9 380 graphics card a few days ago and know we have the specifications for all three cards.
AMD Radeon R9 380, Radeon R9 370 and Radeon R9 360 OEM Graphics Cards Launched
The Radeon R300 OEM lineup is based on graphics chips which have already been featured on the Radeon R200 series family which makes them rebrands but this isn’t the first time a graphics company has done so. Several OEM cards from NVIDIA and AMD reuse existing graphics chips and are labeled as new cards however the truth is that they are not much different than cards which are already available in the consumer market. You can see the specifications of the cards below:
AMD Radeon™ 300 Series Graphics for OEM desktops
Additionally, AMD announced the availability of AMD Radeon™ 300 Series desktop graphics, available only through OEMs. The AMD Radeon™ 300 Series GPUs feature AMD’s revolutionary GCN Architecture with full support for DirectX® 12. The product stack will offer a great experience on new Windows®10 platforms and represents AMD’s commitment to provide the smoothest, high-quality graphics solutions for everyday desktop users. Designs are currently shipping from HP plus additional OEMs shipping soon. via AMDAdvertisement
AMD Radeon R9 380 OEM “Tonga”:
The AMD Radeon R9 380 OEM is based on the Tonga Pro core architecture, featuring 1792 stream processors arranged inside 28 compute units, 112 texture mapping units and 32 raster operation units. The card comes with up to 4 GB of GDDR5 memory which runs across a 256-bit interface that pumps out 176.0 GB/s band-width and is clocked at 918 MHz core and 5.5 GHz memory frequencies. The card requires two 6-Pin connectors and supports AMD’s Freesync technology and has DirectX 12 support.
AMD Radeon R9 370 OEM “Pitcairn”:
The AMD Radeon R9 370 OEM is based on the Pitcairn Pro core architecture, featuring 1024 stream processors arranged inside 16 compute units, 64 texture mapping units and 32 raster operation units. The card comes with up to 4 GB of GDDR5 memory which runs across a 256-bit interface that pumps out 179.2 GB/s band-wdith and is clocked at 975 MHz core and 5.6 GHz memory frequencies. The card requires a single 6-Pin connector and doesn’t feature support for Freesync technology but does come with DirectX 12 support.
AMD Radeon R9 360 OEM “Bonaire”:
The AMD Radeon R9 360 OEM is based on the Bonaire Pro core architecture, featuring 768 stream processors arranged inside 12 compute units, 48 texture mapping units and 16 raster operation units. The card comes with 2 GB of GDDR5 memory which runs across a 128-bit interface that pumps out 104 GB/s memory bandwidth and is clocked at 1050 MHz core and 6.5 GHz memory frequencies. The card requires no power connector due to its low-power and entry level design. Support for both Freesync and DirectX 12 are included.
It can clearly be seen that none of these cards are part of the actual Radeon R300 series family which will be launched by AMD in the next couple of weeks as unveiled at the Financial Analyst Day conference. The flagship graphics card of the lineup, codenamed Fiji will adopt HBM design and deliver better performance per watt compared to previous generation Hawaii graphics core.
