AMD has yet to fully disclose when and what exactly its upcoming R9/R7 300 series will be like, but there have been some rumors providing various details. Now there's a new rumor, and is it a big one. The flagship product in the R9 300 series, the Fiji XT card, will apparently feature 8GB of HBM and be a dual GPU monster; 4GB of HBM per core. So yes, if this rumor proves true, it seems the flagship card will feature two Fiji XT GPUs on the same PCB, with 4GB of HBM per core. It is been thought the flagship card would be the R9 390X, but maybe that won't be the case here. Maybe we'll have the R9 390X as a high-powered single GPU card using a Fiji non-XT core, or maybe the R9 390X was merely an expected jump and not the true flagship. Perhaps we'll get something else, like an R9 395X or R9 39X2, that is the true flagship, dual GPU beast.

One other element that may lead credence to this new rumor is the recent trend in VR and the Oculus Rift Crescent Bay demo that was supposedly powered by an unknown Radeon flagship. A Liquid VR slide mentioned two GPUs were needed for asynchronous rendering and something called an Affinity Multi GPU. Is that unknown flagship this dual GPU Fiji XT or something AMD is working on for the future? We'll just have to wait and see exactly what AMD has in store for us, hopefully at Computex in June.
