Radeon R9 M280X 

Released February, 2015
  • 900 MHz
  • 4 GB GDDR5

Its desktop equivalent which is likely to use the Radeon R9 275X branding will feature the same GPU with better clock speeds.

The ASUS DirectCU II cooler and board design show a lot of ASUS' engineering prowess in the market and overclocking both the GPU and the memory speeds gives us a bit more confidence in the design.

AMD Releases Catalyst 15.9.1 to Fix Several Issues

by Scott Michaud |

I wish I could offer more input, but I just found out about it and it seems pretty cut-and-dry: if you had problems, they should be fixed.
No, no you wouldn't because the 4GB framebuffer is simply not enough for anything above 4K right now, which is why we see a few of AMD's marketing pushes for the Fury X using medium detail in some games, as it greatly reduces the amount of framebuffer required.
I'm an enthusiast who loves 60FPS+ gaming, anything below this isn't good enough.

NVIDIA Publishes DirectX 12 Tips for Developers

by Scott Michaud |
www.pcper.com
Drivers would play around with queuing them and manipulating them, to optimize how these orders are sent to the graphics device, but the game developer had no control over that.
Pretty much all of them apply equally, regardless of graphics vendor, but there are a few NVIDIA-specific comments, particularly the ones about NvAPI at the end and a few labeled notes in the “Root Signatures” category.
We have definitely enjoyed having smaller enthusiast video cards in all of the Fiji-powered cards, the R9 Nano, R9 Fury, and R9 Fury X. The R9 Nano in particular is an amazing achievement for AMD - price and issues aside.
Starting off with the Heaven results at 4K without AA enabled, the scaling between 1, 2, 3 and 4 GPUs is actually quite good.
