AMD just revealed the Radeon 300 series

AMD just revealed their next generation GPU family: the Radeon 300 series. It offers 8 cards starting with Nano up to Fury X. New technologies are integreated as AMD is supporting the gaming community and future games. The 4K resolution is the new standard so AMD GPUs fully support it. The Virtual Reality is rapidly approaching, so the new Radeon family is here to run it smoothly.

AMD announced the smallest member: Radeon R9 Nano. The card will be 6'' long and will offer twitce the performance of the R9 290X. No price yet, but we will see it this summer.

New features:

The new graphics cards support the Virtual Super Resolution which means the GPU renders at a higher resolution, then downsample to your display's output for better clarity. VSR is a feature that is game and engine agnostic to simulate SSAA in games that do not have native SSAA support. VSR can also be used in conjunction with other native in game anti-aliasing for even more in game graphics setting control. 

Frame Rate Targeting Control is a new feature introduced with the Radeon R7 & R9 300 Series graphics cards, enabling users with the control to set a target maximum frame rate when playing an application in full screen mode; the benefit being that FRTC can reduce GPU power consumption (great for games running at frame rates much higher than the display refresh rate) and therefore reduce heat generation and fan speeds/noise on the graphics card. Frame rate targeting control caps performance not only in 3D rendered in-game scenes, but also in splash screens, loading screens and menus, where framerates often run needlessly into the hundreds of fps. Users might wish to set a very high cap just to limit wasteful fps like that seen in menus and such, while still taking advantage of the responsiveness given by fps well beyond 60. FRTC is especially useful when rendering relatively 'easy' content on powerful hardware, e.g. when you've got a relatively low resolution monitor connected to a higher end graphics board, or when playing an older title, or a game with a relatively lightweight graphics load. The current implementation of Frame Rate Targeting Control works with DirectX 10 and 11 titles, and offers targets in the range of 55 to 95 fps.

AMD Radeon 300 Series Graphics fully support Microsoft DirectX 12, with the following enhancements:

Faster Tessellation

- Tiled Resources – support for massive virtual textures, enabling dynamic loading of tiles into graphics RAM for expansive game world details

Async Shaders are a new feature in DirectX 12 that allow complex graphics tasks to use all available AMD Radeon graphics resources simultaneously. Breaking one big job into many small pieces allows the work to be done more quickly, for greater performance. AMD's Graphics Core Next architecture has dedicated hardware, called Asynchronous Compute Engines (ACE), which are specifically designed to do this job at very high speed.

Multi-GPU in DX12 = Previous versions of DirectX did not directly support multi-GPU configurations. Developers designed their own support in games and drivers, but there were often limitations: minimal control over the hardware, restricted GPU combinations, and difficulty optimizing graphics workloads for multiple GPUs. DirectX 12's explicit multiadapter adds multi-GPU support to DirectX for the first time, giving game developers a much finer and more direct level of control over PC hardware. This control can enable DirectX 12 game engines to extract more performance from multiple GPUs, and use multi-GPU configurations that were not possible in DirectX 11.

 

For hungry gamers there will be a dual-GPU Fury card. No name for it yet, but AMD sayd it will arrive this fall.

The Fury X will sport a liquid cooling solution and will be 'overclockers dream' as Joe Macri (AMD CTO) said.
