AMD to take on GTX 780 Ti with new flagship this summer?

VideoCardz delivers news that AMD is reportedly working on a new flagship GPU capable of besting NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 780 Ti. It will be a new single GPU card and the site speculates it may be called Radeon R9 295X (without the 2) because it's too early to move on to the Radeon R9 300 series.

The site heard AMD's Volcanic Island refresh is expected to utilize High Bandwidth Memory (HBM), a new form of memory stacking that promises significantly more bandwidth, lower power consumption and higher density.

Also leaked is the following list that reveals basic pointers about AMD's 2014-2016 GPU roadmap:
Volcanic Islands will be replaced with Pirate Islands somewhere in the second half of next year. What’s important here, Pirate Islands will be the first 20nm series. This basically means we are more than a year from now till 20nm node arrives from AMD. The 20nm process will not be our guest for long, AMD will quickly move forward to 14nm process with Pirate Islands Refresh.
