MSI teases custom Radeon R9 series cards

Posted on Wednesday, October 02 2013 @ 13:20:09 CEST by

VideoCardz spotted a teaser photo of MSI's upcoming Radeon R9 280X Gaming (foreground) and Radeon R9 270X Hawk (background) graphics cards.
Just as I told you, the R9 280X is almost exactly the same card as Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition. The R9 280X will be the first Tahiti-based graphics card from MSI Gaming series. I said almost because R9 280X does not entirely have the same specs as 7970 GHz Edition. In fact this is a mix of GHz Edition and the older model of 7970. The MSI R9 280X is clocked at 1000/1050 MHz, which is exactly the clock speed of a reference 7970GE. The main difference is the memory clock, which is lower and it operates at 5.5 GHz, making it 500 MHz slower than HD 7970 GE. This is quite surprising. Although please consider that the datasheet could be showing a preliminary data, don’t be surprised if the memory clock is actually higher.
