Yes, because less VRAM and a smaller bus than Tahiti is better than Tahiti, right? 275X made more sense. Eh, at least SweClockers is fairly reliable.

Hmmm... With the V-ram wars going on, and people saying 2gb is not enough anymore, i wonder why AMD is supposedly making this switch from their regular 3gb to 2gb tongue.gif

I'm beginning to think we won't be seeing a new series until Q2 2015

I thought the 280x already got updated to xtl? I doubt somehow that the 280x will have 3 revisions on the exact same node. I can imagine new cards coming out with tonga but updating cards doesn't seem extremely plausible. Then again, who knows right...

That's pretty close to the definition of innovation.

I'm guessing there's a good chance it has an improved memory controller, especially seeing how GK-104 puts up a good fight against Tahiti with a narrower bus and faster memory IC. If true, it makes sense to place it one tier above the 280X.

Reminds me of what Nvidia did with the 660 TI.

660Ti was a 670 with a gimped back-end. This is supposedly similar to Tahiti with a gimped back-end... So it's a higher model number? headscratch.gif
