no not really, the only "new" thing in AMD's current lineup is the ultra-rare (rarer than 980Ti) Fury/FuryX/Nano cards, and probably the up coming full Tonga 380X.
on the other hand, we got a bunch of rebrands in the 300 series, even down to the 7000 series had made it into the mid-tier 300 series GPUs.

we already had one with the fury cards, 290X to Fury X is a 30%~50% jump, depending on resolution and game, although its not faster than 295X2.
the only reason why we didn't feel the performance jump is due to the rebrands flooding the 300 series.
though on that note, if even the mid-tier GPUs will get a new card, we can probably expect a good jump in performance.
something like a $250 card out performing the old 290X sort of jump in performance.Edited by epic1337 - 10/23/15 at 6:22am
