[TPU] R9-270X a Faster Radeon HD 7870 "Tahiti LE"

post #1 of 8

AMD's performance-segment Radeon R9 270X could prove to be a winning sub-$200 product for the company. Sources affiliated with a leading online retailer revealed that the SKU could greatly resemble the limited edition Radeon HD 7870 "Tahiti LE," possibly with higher clock speeds and stream processor count. "Tahiti LE" is a major variation of "Tahiti," which features not just lower numbers of stream processors and TMUs, but also a narrower 256-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface. The die is mated with a more compact BGA package that has lower pin count, thanks to the narrower memory interface, and probably fewer power/ancillary connections. Sources reveal the R9 270X to be "a crippled HD 7950," which could indicate a stream processor count of 1792, higher than the 1536 of Radeon HD 7870 "Tahiti LE." The TMU count could be proportionately higher due to the way they're structured on the GPU; at 112, compared to 96 on "Tahiti LE." The clock speeds are still under the wraps. AMD set an SEP price of the Radeon R9 270X at $199.

 If only they had just left the 3gb on board. How about they sell a 4gb version for $225? :)

I hope this is true. If this card is a pitcairn for $199 than it's a fail. I'd also feel the same about a re-branded 7870 XT.

the 7870 pitcairn and the 7870XT (tahiti LE) are both way faster than a 6970 already. and I know the 7870 XT isn't pitcairn, hence me saying that "I'd also feel the same about a re-branded 7870 XT".
