HIS accidentally leaks SKUs for AMD R-200 series graphics cards

HIS posts SKUs for AMD R-200 series video cards on accident (NYSE:AMD)

| Video Cards News | Posted: Sep 16, 2013 9:49 pm

Early this morning, video card manufacturer HIS accidentally leaked the SKUs and details on seven new GPUs the company will be offering from AMD's upcoming R-200 series. It appears that with the pending 4K refresh happening in the video resolution world AMD is looking to dump the Radeon HD name for its video cards and replace it with a new system that makes it easier to identify which cards are which.

The new simplified naming scheme works something like this. R9-280X stands for Radeon Generation 9 Model 280 Variant X. AMD says that this new naming scheme will make it easier to classify future generation cards and will enable consumers to quickly chose the right card for their needs.
