    Last month of Q1 and still no news... When they said we'd get the GPUs in Q2, I was really hoping that it would be early Q2, for AMD's sake.

    FINALLY some news. WCCFtech has just posted an article contained supposed leaked pictures of an XFX R9 380. ( They originally thought that it was an R9 390; check the first paragraph of the article)

    XFX Radeon R9 380 Double Dissipation Allegedly Pictured

    I like the new colour scheme, but it looks like the card is just a rebranded 290 (maybe a 290X). I guess I'm not really disappointed by the product itself, but I was hoping for something more exciting.

    So, 390 and 390X being new chips with new VRAM, 380(X) being rebrands, just like last time?

    That's one rumor, 390+390X = Fiji, everything else = rebrands. The other rumor is that the 300 series will be a completely new lineup with no rebrands.

    I'm much more inclined to believe the former. I think the latter is wishful thinking.

    Well, as long as the 390X is fast enough. They can tune the new chip down for more refreshes later.

    From the looks of it, probably the former... Unless AMD really pulls a rabbit out of the hat...

    That's what I believe as well, although I do hope to be surprised.

    Only if there is a die shrink to reduce manufacturing costs, otherwise AMD will just keep bleeding money. The company won't last very long at this rate:
