Rumor website WCCF Tech came across news that AMD is planning to release its Radeon R9 380X "Antigua XT" video card in the week of November 15-19. The card will reportedly be priced at $249 and you get 2048 stream processors, 128 TMUs, 32 ROPs, a 256-bit memory bus and 4GB GDDR5 memory.
The card features a 256 bit memory bus and 4GB of GDDR5 memory as well as the GCN 1.2 architecture. The Antigua core is actually the revised Tonga core – full blown I might add and is technically the XT variant. While the Tonga XT variant is present in embedded solutions and the mobility side of things – it had yet to make its way over to the desktop side of things – so this is definitely not a rebrand, but rather a new launch.
