AMD Preparing Tahiti XTL Revision of Radeon R9 280X

post #1 of 3

First time i see this... always nice to get a update and less power consumption is always great... but... now the questions begin.

Is it actually going to offer more performance/OC better ? or the same/weaker ?
Will it have True Audio ?
How in the blazes can we assure a XTL or XT2 purchase since there is no way to tell them apart ?

Well for me, if the difference in power consumption is anything below 50W I won't really care.

Overclocking is something I'm not that into so currently not bothered.

True Audio I couldn't really care less about because I use an external sound card.

You apparently can't tell them apart except for reading their BIOS after buying one, so you will need to wait at least a month then hope the place you buy it from has new stock.

If it has more than 50W less power consumption or anything else that could be useful like improved performance or features that could be useful to me then I will be bothered, and really I think it's poor of them to do this when they could have just postponed the launch by a month or so.
