    I will take a 380X if its a rebranded 290X, probably won't be able to fit a 390 with its closed loop cooler in my case any way (if it needs one that is).

    Lol..so the 380 & 380X are nothing but name changed, speed bumped 290 & 290X's.

    AMD have had nearly 2yrs to come up with something and the best they can do to rival the 970 & 980 is a different name on the box and a speed bump.

    They're doomed if they carry on like this.

    What about the 390, 390x and 395x2? You focus on 380 and 380x which will be made to fight 970 and 980 respectively. I bet it will be a -15% difference or so on price.
    nV will answer with their 980ti or titan2 and then amd, half a year later, with 390x and then 395x2... This will never end lol :nerd:

    Speed bumps of 7970 GHz Edition and 280x compared to the regular 7970 were pretty significant. Perhaps it'll be similar in case of 380(x) too. I hope it'll be able to fight 970 and 980, especially as the price of the latter is absurd in EU.

    Still, I'd wait for 390(x).

    There aren't many new games in January, so the nVidia and AMD driver teams don't have to churn out so many drivers.

    Looking at the specks os the cards seems like well be getting just a 1.2 GCN update, like the Tonga refresh a few months back.

    GPU rebrands and rehashes are a norm in the industry. Even Nvidia did it with some of their 700 series. It happens a lot more in the low end/entry level segment just that they don't get the limelight. At the very least the Grenada (Hawaii refresh) is getting modernized and performance improved to beat the 980.

    Its going to be interesting with Fiji's performance and the 300 series is going to force Nvidia to lower prices again. So even Nvidia fans should rejoice.

    Competition FTW.

    Damn, I'm disappointed. Last year I was looking at 970 to finally replace my current, ancient video card, but a friend told me it might be worth it to wait for the AMD 300 generation with the all new technology. So, I've been waiting only to learn now that the 380(x) model, which is the highest I could afford as I'd assume 390(x) is going to cost an arm and a leg being the flagship model, will be in fact dusty old technology with absolutely nothing new.

    Unless I'll get 380(x) for 300 euros or less (which is impossible, I reckon), then I'm forced to continue with Nvidia. Fortunately it's all the same for me if it's Nvidia or AMD. Rather than never having had problems with either, I've had problems with both equally, har har.

    They really need an update, to match the 980 with grenada. Around 1200ish base clock at least.

    Give me a Tonga based card on Steroids which beats standart 290 and with 4-6GB Ram with less then 200Watts and i go red with a DP1.2a Monitor.

    Otherwise i go green with a G(ay)-Sync monitor and i always will go green until the Monitor DIE.

    I really hate this GPU´s this days, why Intel cant make good GPUs, i m really sick of AMD and NVIDIA

    IF we want to call cards like 370(x) rebrands, then nearly everything in history of x86 architecture has been rebranded.

    Because while Tonga may have GPU compute/rendering part of Tahiti, it has only 256bit bus but has new display controller and TrueAudio, better tessellation. (this means architectural changes)
    And if 370(x) is supposed to be Tonga based it would again have to have 256bit bus, but it apparently features 384bit bus.
    (if anything, it is not rebrand, it is updated/upgraded Tahiti to GCN 1.3)

    Anyway, this is like 5th rumor thread...

    If the 380X will be as fast as the GTX 980 and cost like the gtx 970 or lower then gg nVidia :D

    So if R380 is going to fight with GTX980, R390 should be really interesting card. interesting see what NV will come up with.

    Yeah FijiXt 390/390X will be a interesting card , nv answer GM200 Geforce and nope it won't be a Titan variant, just Geforce for those still wondering, Titan will be with Pascal..

    Way too high to actually reach. So, pretty much none.

    they should pimp the 295 chip witch is newer than the 280x, not the 280x which is older even now, in other hand, i love those Ham photos.
