AMD is starting to ramp up its rumor machine, with talk of the new Radeon R9 390X, it’s next generation flagship GPU. AMD’s new R9 390X is expected to be available in the first half of 2015, according to DigiTimes.
The new Radeon R9 390X is based on AMD’s Bermuda GPU core, which should kick some serious ass, bringing a slew of new things to AMD’s silicon. First off, we should see the R9 390X being the first GPU to be built on TSMC’s new 20nm manufacturing process, but the card is rumored to arrive with High Bandwidth Memory, or HBM. HBM is 3D stacked memory technology that will offer an incredible amount of bandwidth on the already-fast GDDR5 tech that is used, with around 100% more bandwidth, all while using less power.
