We have some new rumors concerning AMD's upcoming Fiji XT GPU, and boy, are they a doozy. The first rumor deals with the fact that Fiji XT will not be the R9 390X, but rather a separate product similar to NVIDIA's TITAN line. The R9 300 series will be composed of Hawaii GPUs rebranded and heavily tweaked to offer better performance, which is an interesting take on a new series. When viewed like that, it didn't seem like there was any room for the all-new Fiji GPUs, but now it appears to be slated for the ultra high-end market. It would also mean a vastly highly price tag, which is where the second rumor comes in.

This rumor deals with the fact there will be two Fiji products: the Fiji XT and the Fiji VR. The Fiji XT will be a single GPU model with 4GB of HBM, which AMD says won't be an issue. The Fiji VR is the dual-GPU card with 8GB of HBM, so 4GB per GPU. Whether or not it will be watercooled, like early rumors suggested, remains to be seen. The single GPU Fiji XT card is expected to be priced at $849, with the Fiji VR's price currently unknown. It will most likely be above $1,000, maybe even around $1,200, so it definitely won't be for everyone. The single GPU card will also launch earlier, think mid to late June, with the dual GPU one later on, which also lines up with past rumors.

Now, remember, all of this is strictly based on rumors, so do take it with a grain of salt. Computex is around the corner, so you can definitely be sure to find the exact details on the Fiji GPUs right here.
