AMD Polaris 10 Has 390/390X Performance

The folks at Fudzilla, citing "well-informed sources," claim that AMD's upcoming Polaris 10 will have R9 390 - R9 390X performance with a price tag in the $299 range. Obviously we'll have to wait and see how accurate this info is but, in the mean time, it's always fun to speculate on leaked specs.

AMD is about to launch two GPUs soon. One is codenmamed Polaris 10 and will replace Radeon 390 cards and the other, the Polaris 11 should replace the Radeon 370 and take on Geforce 950 performance. Our well-informed sources are confident that Polaris 10 should match or outperform Radeon R9 390 cards and in some cases even give the Radeon R9 390X a good kicking. AMD currently wants $400 for Radeon R9 390X, and and its Radeon R9 390 could go as low as $310. The Polaris 10 should end up at $299 price at launch, and it will focus on the low power and power per wat where the Nvidia card is vulnerable.
