AMD launches Radeon 300 series rebrands for OEMs

Discussion created by kingfish on May 28, 2015

I expect to hear a lot of screaming from people who buy laptops with these graphics.


""AMD has quietly launched a new range of graphics cards designed for OEMs and system builders that fall under Radeon 300 series branding. Like with the HD 8000 series a couple of years ago, these cards are essentially all rebrands of existing Radeon 200 series products, and won't be available through retail channels.

The highest end OEM product is the Radeon R9 380, the very same graphics card seen in HP's latest Envy desktops that we speculated could be a next-generation GPU. Unfortunately this isn't the case, as the R9 380 is a basic rebrand of the R9 285 from AMD's current range of graphics cards.

The rest of the OEM range are rebrands of either R7 or R5 series cards, the oldest of which is the R9 370 that uses a Pitcairn GPU first introduced in the Radeon HD 7850 released in early 2012.""
