Johan Andersson, technical director for Frostbite engine at DICE, couldn’t help but show off AMD’s upcoming flagship GPU that many are calling it as AMD Radeon R9 390X. It’s not clear if AMD would be having that naming for the card officially. But Johan Andersson seems to be very impressed with it.
He said via Twitter,“This new island is one seriously impressive and sweet GPU.”
The much talked and conveniently info leaked AMD Radeon R9 390X is a highly anticipated card and also uses HBM that is said to be nine times faster than the current GDDR5 VRAM standard. As of now, it faces a strong competition against an already successful Nvidia GTX 980 and its upcoming GTX 980 Ti card.
The official GPU codenamed ‘Fiji’ It is assumed that the GPU will be displayed in Computex 2015 which starts on June 2nd. Whether it will be shown to the public or just the selected crowd remains to be seen.

Even if the photo is taken at an angle, its safe to say that the GPU isn’t really long that we get to see in certain mid-to-high end GPUs. Previously, there were renderings posted by the usual information leak and rumour-mill websites that showed Radeon R9 390x to be a liquid cooled unit with a 120mm radiator.
