AMD Launches Rebranded R300 Series For Desktop OEMs

AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) has officially launched the R300 series of desktop GPUs for OEMs and system integrators.

Though some of the details were leaked last week, AMD has now officially revealed everything.

Generally all of these cards are rebrands of R200 series cards with faster clock speeds.

There’s no sign yet of an R9 390 card, as this might be saved for a fall launch.


The flagship card in the lineup is the R9 380 which is a rebrand of the R9 285. Powered by the Tonga Pro GPU, it packs 1792 Stream Processors, 112 TMUs and 32 ROPs, and a clock speed of 918MHz for the GPU and to 4GB of GDDR5 memory with a clock speed of 5.5GHz.

Next up is the R9 370 that runs on the Pitcairn. This card is a rebrand of the R7 265, and comes with 1024 Stream Processors, 64 TMUs and 32 ROPs. It’s available in either 2 or 4 GB models and is clocked at 975MHz for the GPU and 5.6GHz for memory. This is a fairly lightweight version of the card, as it lacks support for 4K H.264 decoding.

The last significant card in the lineup is the R9 360, which is based on the Bonaire Pro architecture which is GCN 1.1 compliant. It comes with 2GB of DDR5 memory and a GPU clocked to 1050 MHz with RAM at 5.6 GHz. Essentially this is a rebrand of the R9 260 OEM card.

These cards will be available in systems around back to school time.
