Just recently, TechPowerUp’s BIOS collection revealed more specifications and final clock speeds of the upcoming AMD Radeon R9 270X and Radeon R9 280X graphics cards. The Radeon R9 270X will use the CURACAO XT chip, meanwhile the R9 280X will use a rebrand of the Tahiti XT, the TAHITI XTL. Check out more details below, including their prices and expected release dates.

amd radeon r9 280x and r9 270x specs price release date

AMD Radeon R9 270X Specifications

The AMD Radeon R9 270X is powered by a CURACAO XT processor with clock speeds of 1000 MHz, or 1GHz, and can go up to 1050MHz in boost state. This makes the R9 270X slightly faster than the HD 7870 GE. The CURACAO XT processor is a derivative of the previous Pitcairn chips and could feature 1280 or 1536 core processors.

The Radeon R9 270X is also built with 2GB GDDR5 memory with clock speed of 1400MHz and 5.6GHz effective, on a 256-bit memory interface. Although this information still needs to be confirmed.

AMD Radeon R9 270X Price and Release Date

AMD has previously disclosed in their GPU14 event held last September 25, on Hawaii, that the Radeon R9 270X is a sub $300 graphics card. The R9 270X will be priced somewhere in the $199 price point, and will vary depending on the different manufacturer’s additional configurations.

Meanwhile, there is a recent report, the the R9 270X will be released or will start selling from October 8, 2013.

AMD Radeon R9 280X Specifications

The AMD Radeon R9 280X will feature a TAHITI XTL processor with a reference clock speed of 850MHz up to 1GHz, or probably the 1GHz is the base clock speed.

It also features a 3GB GDDR5 memory with clock speeds of 1500MHz/2000MHz, in a 384-bit memory interface. Since the Tahiti processor features 2048 stream processors, 32 rastering units and 128 texturing units, the TAHITI XTL might feature the same specs or will have more.

AMD Radeon R9 280X Price and Release Date

The Radeon R9 280X is expected to be priced at $299 price point, still a sub $300 graphics card. But actual prices from manufacturers like Asus or MSI (who make use of their own custom GPU cooler) will vary depending on their additional configurations.

The R9 280X is also expected to be available starting October 8, and we will start seeing real reviews once the products becomes available.

I love computers since I was a kid. I’m always fascinated with new technology, especially in the PC world. Many years ago, I was curious if the reviews I read were true and real. So, why not test them myself and share my first-hand experience? And thus, here we are. Thanks for reading!
