AMD announces new Radeon R9 and R7 series graphics cards
Press release, September 26; Joseph Tsai, DIGITIMES [Thursday 26 September 2013]

AMD has unveiled the Radeon R9 290X, R9 290, R9 280X, R9 270X, R7 260X and R7 250 graphics cards.

The Graphics Core Next (GCN) architecture in the AMD Radeon R9 and R7 series graphics cards continues to serve as a driving force behind the Unified Gaming Strategy, AMD's approach to providing a consistent gaming experience. The four pillars of the Unified Gaming Strategy, console, cloud, content and client, come together with the introduction of Mantle which will allow specific games the ability to speak the native language of the Graphics Core Next architecture, presenting a deeper level of hardware optimization.

AMD TrueAudio technology empowers game developers with a programmable audio pipeline on the GPU.

AMD Radeon R9 and R7 series graphics cards are made for gaming on Ultra HD (3840 by 2160) displays, including support for non-tiled 2160p60 displays with a future AMD Catalyst driver release.

AMD Radeon R9 and R7 series graphics cards will be available for purchase in the near future.
