Another leak has made it its way into the wild..errr….interwebz.
Thistimes its in a PDF sent to the editor of Videocardz.com
the leak contained a professionally looking PDF file as per them so we can be pretty much certain its a real one the the next gen card form AMD is getting released to AIB’s next week.
with that aside i would like to draw your attention to the codename WCE whihc i think means WaterCooler Edition, so there might be a non water cooled edition too? if so please AMD give us a proper copper or steel reference cooler this time.
Maybe something like this
With the Radeon logo glowing(one can dream,right?)
AMD Radeon R9 390X WCE:
- Next iteration of the highly successful GCN design
– Up to 4096 shader units
- Full DirectX®12_Tier 3 implementation
- Optimized for 4K gaming & beyond
- First ever GPU designed for VR immersion
- Special enthusiast water-cooled edition
- Up to 8GB of ultra-high bandwidth HBM video memory
- Hardware H.265 decoding and over 4x the previous H.264 encoding speed, enabling smooth live streaming
- Enhanced ZeroCore™ functionallity (not sure why would make such a mistake)
So take this leak with a very big bad of salt and wait for the actual release.
