This card could be the Radeon R9 390x ( part of the upcoming Rx 300 family series developed by AMD. The cards are the first to feature High Bandwidth Memory (HBM) and are codenamed Pirate Islands ) .

The product is closely resembling renders posted a week or so ago. That card (Likely Fiji) is so small in size thanks to on-die HBM , making the PCB really small as you do not need space for graphics memory on the actual PCB any longer.

Below are the speculated specs for the 390x
