More Info: http://www.amd.com/us/press-releases/Pages/amd-radeon-r9-2013sept25.aspx

AMD has unveiled the AMD Radeon R9 290X, R9 290, R9 280X, R9 270X, R7 260X, and R7 250 video cards, AMD’s first GPUs in a new era of gaming defined by UltraHD displays, renewed vigor in game engine development, and a new generation of gamers that expect a more immersive entertainment experience. AMD also introduced the world to Mantle and AMD TrueAudio technology, the latest innovations that redefine the GPU by enabling both gamers and game developers with unprecedented audio and performance enhancements for compatible games.

The new AMD Radeon R7 and R9 families of graphics chip feature three key pillars: AMD GCN architecture with tweaks that add support for DirectX 11.2 application programming interface; AMD TrueAudio technology, which empowers game developers with a programmable audio pipeline on the GPU. AMD TrueAudio technology enhances audio realism by simulating the human brain’s perception of real-world sound, working in concert with the user’s existing audio hardware to recreate a lifelike experience in upcoming games like “THIEF” by Square Enix or “Lichdom” by Xaviant Games; as well as a set of optimizations for ultra high-definition 4K (3840*2160) output.

The new R9- and R7-series of GPUs will be available at price-points from USD 89 to USD 599+.
