AMD is planning to release a revision of the Radeon R9 280X this late-November, based on the new "Tahiti-XTL" silicon.

I can only wonder what AMD are playing at. There's gonna be a lot of annoyed consumers if this revised card gives significantly better performance.

I don't buy it being a new silicon. Probably another overclock and voltage bump to get ahead of 770. 280x is 1% slower than 770.

Sounds like more Tahiti XT2 bull****. AMD just simply bumped the core voltage from 1.07-1.17v for Tahiti to 1.17-1.22v for Tahiti XT2.

It's more than that. This revision improves efficiency and performance simultaneously; you can't do that with a mere voltage bump.

But, haters gonna hate.

...until you double them up. Mind you: 7970CF>780SLI! Nvidia enthusiasts, please take notice. thumb.gif

Which means 280x crossfire>>>780sli ?
I still cant really find many 280x vs 7970, although admittedly I haven't really looked. biggrin.gif
