AMD HD 380X - Elpida Memory Only?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Doing some research on the R9-380X, and it seems like it only is made with a specific Elpida memory chip. The only evidence I can find otherwise is a single AMD reference model which uses Samsung, and the non-X 380 which has Hynix in a few versions.

As an example, all reviews for the ASUS Radeon R9 380X STRIX only cite Elpida memory only. This trend also seems to be mirrored on any other model as well with no real variation.

Is this fully the case? Does anyone own a ASUS Radeon R9 380X STRIX and would be able to confirm via GPU-Z (or any other 380X for that matter?)

Every Asus 380 or 380X I have come across has had Elpida memory. Other manufacturers use different brands of memory. I wouldn't worry about it too much, the Tonga GPU seems to be limited more by the memory controller more than the memory ic's.
