AMD Mobility Radeon 400 series specs released

AMD has officially confirmed the specifications of your graphics card Mobility Radeon 400 series on its website. The line consists of several series chips Radeon Radeon R9 and R7 to be integrated into mobile platforms ranging from high – performance to low power solutions. The new Mobility Radeon Radeon 400 Series, at least until this Polaris consists of rehashes of the current 300 series.

AMD Mobility Radeon 400 series

The catalog of the AMD Radeon R9 M400 series includes three chips. The Radeon R9 M485X, M470X the Radeon R9 and R9 Radeon M470. The three chips are based on core graphics cards already on the market: For example, the Radeon R9 M485X is powered by the AMD Antigua XT GPU. This chip has the same specifications as the Radeon R9 M395X with 8 GB of GDDR5 memory operating in a memory bus of 256 bits and a memory clock of 1250 MHz. The other two chips are based on the architecture of the charts Bonaire core. The Radeon R9 M470X has 14 computer units including 896 stream processors, while the GPU Radeon R9 470 comes with 12 computer units that move 768 shaders. Both chips have 4 GB of GDDR5 memory at a speed of 1500 MHz, running a memory interface of 128 bits.

The catalog of the AMD Radeon R7 M400 series includes five chips. All chips are based on older graphics cards. Starting with the Radeon R7 M465X having a chip 512 stream processors and includes 4GB GDDR5 GRAM with a clock frequency of 1125 MHz. The next two are nuclei Topaz XT based on Radeon R7 M465 and R7 M460 using the same core configuration of 384 stream processors with 4 GB of GRAM. There are also variants with only 5 units employing computer (320 stream processors), including the Radeon R7 M445 and M440 Radeon R7.

Finally, the catalog of the AMD Radeon R5 M400 series consists of three graphics cores that will be targeted at low – cost computer systems, the range most basic products. The SKU includes R5 M435, M430 and R5 R5 M420 graphics cards, which are based on architectures Sun Jet XT and Pro. All these centers offer the same core configuration with 320 stream processors. The memory includes variants 4GB GDDR5 or DDR3 with a clock frequency of 1000 MHz and run all through a 64 – bit bus.

Seeing everything you have just read, certainly more than one you’re wondering where are the graphs with Polaris. Well, since AMD has not yet presented these graphics cores, it is logical that are not reflected on their website, but I noticed that there are certain nomenclatures that AMD has not yet presented such as the M490X R9, M490, M480X and M480 . These, these models assume that will incorporate the new Polaris that cores inside. And of them, as a personal opinion, I think the R9 and R9 M490X M490 portable version will incorporate a core Polaris 10, while the M480X R9 and R9 M480 will be incorporating within the Polaris 11 cores.

Polaris 10 and 11 specifications unveiled

According to TechPowerUp, industry sources have informed some interesting specifications of the next two GPUs that AMD will launch the market, graphic Polaris 10 Polaris 11 , both based on the fourth generation of graphics architecture Graphics Core Next.

Polaris 10 and 11 specifications

Although this leak comes first hand from one of the most important sites worldwide hardware must catch it with tweezers, as always, for there is nothing confirmed by the manufacturer. According to report, and we already knew, AMD is preparing two GPUs, one for midrange and one for the so-called industry performance (not high-end, eye).

Ellesmere GPU performance will be the sector and will according to the source with 32 CUs (Compute Units) and not 40 as previously thought. Assuming that each CU has 64 Stream Processors, this gives us that AMD graphics Polaris “Ellesmere” will have 2048 Stream Processors, yet these graphs have a power of 5.5 TFlop / s according to AMD.

While Hawaii AMD graphics have a TDP of no less than 250 watts, the new chips will have as much a TDP of 150 watts, which would allow AMD to put a single power connector 8-pin, as it has done NVIDIA its new generation, and as it did already in the R9 Nano AMD. According to the source, these graphic Polaris will have 8GB of GDDR5 / GDDR5X memory with a 256-bit bus, something we already knew well.

The “small” Polaris chip as techpowerup says, the midrange is called Baffin (as I have explained above). In this case count, according to the source, with only 14 CUs, ie, 896 Stream Processors nothing else. It would be the successor chip Tobago (Radeon R7 360) and a similar performance to R9 380 is expected, more or less. The good part of these graphs is that in theory will have a TDP of only 50 watts and will not need additional power connector.

Gigabyte G1.Gaming is a motherboard for AMD 990X Gaming AM3+ processor

Gigabyte G1.Gaming AMD 990X Gaming AM3

Although quite some time ago AMD does not update its platform (awaiting Zen), Gigabyte is one of the few manufacturers that continues to innovate and launch new products for this. We are today at the announcement of the third generation of G1.Gaming plates for socket AM3 + AMD, the 990X Gaming SLI. As the name suggests, this new Gigabyte board features NVIDIA SLI certification, as you know, is a proprietary technology from NVIDIA for which you must pay a fee.

Gigabyte has done so its 990X Gaming SLI is certified to work with multiple graphics cards configurations NVIDIA SLI configuration, but of course is also compatible with AMD CrossFireX technology.Gaming SLI Gigabyte 990FX supports all the latest processors that AMD has released AM3 + socket for, including the latest FX-8370. The support plate including the FX-9000 Series with 220-watt TDP processors, so we can be sure that if the processor is socket AM3 + will be compatible with this board.

Gigabyte G1.Gaming review

With ATX format, Gaming SLI 990FX mounts a VRM controller 11 phases to ensure good system stability even do Overclock (remember that AMD does not limit this point, and indeed its Black Edition processors come with unlocked multiplier). You need to run an ATX 24-pin connector and one 8-pin EPS (4 + 4) of the power supply.Supports up to 32 GB of RAM DDR3 memory up to 2400 MHz dual-channel (has 4 memory sockets), and includes two PCI-Express 2.0 x16 sockets that run x8x8 when both are being used (a pity that Gigabyte has not integrated PCI -Express 3.0 on this board), and a PCI-Express 2.0 x1 and a PCI legacy.

What has integrated Gigabyte 990FX in SLI Gaming is a connector M.2 20 Gbps (with support for booting from NVMe SSD) and six SATA June 3 Gbps, so in storage paragraph shall be more than enough.Finally it should be noted that the plate has an extensive external connectivity, it incorporates two USB 3.1 Type-A (the usual) and two USB 3.0 on the rear, plus an internal header for two USB 3.0 ports on the front of the box where we install. It also has a network card Gigabit Intel I-218V, sound card 10-channel sound isolation circuit and electrolytic capacitors.In theory Gigabyte will this new board in stores this month at a price that has not been defined but is expected to be around 100 euros.

AMD Radeon R9 Fury versus Geforce GTX 980

Specifications of Fiji based 28nm graphic card AMD Radeon R9 Fury have been leaked and it is directly going to be compared with the NVIDIA Geforce GTX 980. The AMD Radeon R9 Fury is slated to go on sale with a price tag of 640 euros.

AMD Radeon R9 Fury specifications

The leaked specifications of AMD Radeon R9 Fury include 56 compute units meaning it will have 3,584 Stream Processors, leaving the number of TMUs in 224 and the number of ROPs to 64. The memory configuration of this graphics card has not undergone any change and will come with four gigabytes of HBM graphics memory.

Of course, contrary to what is believed, the only difference from the Fury X hardware level will be that we have already counted, ie operating frequencies will be the same: 1050 MHz in the core and 500 Mhz memory (bandwidth with total memory of 512 GB / s). Therefore, based on empirical data regarding the difference Fury X is 12.5%.

To come with air cooling heat sinks

Another key difference is the sink. Since the AMD Radeon R9 Fury will sink air cooling instead of water cooling, the Fury X will operate at slightly higher temperatures. We can therefore expect the temperatures to reach around 75 degrees centigrade.

Direct competition with GeForce GTX 980

With these specifications in hand, the AMD Radon R9 Fury will be a direct competitor to the GTX 980. Again we must insist that this is a very good situation for users as well as having a greater number of options. It is possible that AMD and NVIDIA entering a small price war and can get hold of one of these gem at great prices.
