[UPDATE]HIS Digital Leak Confirms AMD R-200 Series Graphic Cards – R9-290 Cards Based on Hawaii GPU
It looks like links that redirect to HIS Digital’s listing page are down since the leak. A few moments before the links were taken down, HIS revealed yet another card – 280X iPower IceQ X ².
The GPU is called – ”R9 280X iPower IceQ X ² Boost Clock 3GB GDDR5
PCI-E DLDVI-I/HDMI/2xMini DP” and has a 3 GB GDDR5 memory running along a
384-bit interface and uses the iceQ X2 cooler just like the Radeon HD
7970. The R9-280X is said to feature a Hawaii LE GPU so its possible
that Hawaii as a complete chip could end up with a higher memory buffer since the Tahiti LE chip offered 2 GB GDDR5 memory although the full Tahiti chip offers 3 GB memory and 384-bit bus on the HD 7970 and HD 7950 graphic cards. As mentioned, the links are down but Computerbase was fast enough to grab a screenshot which can be seen below.
