Report: AMD Radeon R9 270X Features Tahiti LE Core
AMD's next-generation R9 270X will reportedly feature a similar "Tahiti LE" to the Radeon HD 7950 and HD 7870 limited edition.
According to a post from Overclockers UK staff member "Gibbo," AMD's upcoming mid-range R9 270X graphics card will include a revised version of the "Tahiti LE" core that he describes as a "crippled HD 7950" with 2 GB of memory over a 256-bit memory bus.
Though technical specifications aren't publicly available yet, the presence of "Tahiti LE" core suggests that the graphics card will feature between 1,536 (HD 7870 LE) and 1,792 shader units and that the GPU may be clocked at between 800 MHz (HD 7950) and 975 MHz (HD 7870 LE).
The Radeon R9 270X has been priced at $199 and is expected to arrive on retail shelves in October.
