GIGABYTE afslører Radeon R9 380X WindForce 2X grafikkort


GIGABYTE started its Radeon R9 380X graphics card lineup with just one model, the R9 380X G1.Gaming (GV-R938XG1 GAMING-4GD). The company now launched its variant, which sticks to AMD reference clock speeds, the R9 380X WindForce 2X (GV-R938XWF2-4GD). Based on a custom-design PCB by GIGABYTE, the card features the company's WindForce 2X cooling solution, which features an aluminium fin-stack heatsink that uses three copper heat pipes to draw heat directly from the GPU die; dissipating it with a pair of 90 mm spinners. The cooler features 0 dBA idle, it completely shuts the fans off when the GPU is idling.

Baseret på 28 nm 'Antigua' silicium har Radeon R9 380X 2.048 strømprocessorer, 128 TMU'er, 32 ROP'er og en 256-bit bred GDDR5-hukommelsesgrænseflade, der har 4 GB hukommelse. GIGABYTEs kort holder sig til AMD-referenceurhastigheder på 970 MHz-kerne og 5,70 GHz (GDDR5-effektiv) hukommelse. Kortet trækker strøm fra et enkelt 8-polet PCIe-strømstik. Displayudgange inkluderer to dual-link DVI og en hver af DisplayPort 1.2a og HDMI 1.4a-stik. Kortet prissættes til USD 230.
