New Photo Surfaces of AMD's R9 300 Series

A new photo of AMD's still unannounced R9 300 series of video cards has recently surfaced, and while the photo is from an extreme angle, it looks quite interesting, much like the earlier photo. Previous rumors suggested the top-of-the-line Fiji card would be rocking a liquid cooler, and this photo seems to confirm that. The front of the card is completely flat, at least from what we can see, which certainly lends credence to the liquid cooler idea. The only branding on the card is "RADEON," which appears on the top and by the bracket, so you can see it from multiple angles in your case. A combination of metal and plastic also adorn the card, although if it fully encloses it or leaves the back exposed cannot be inferred. Also unknown is the length, as the photo tends to trail off at the end and then blur out, but AMD seemed to suggest the Fiji XT could be a half-length PCB, so this could be the case here.

We still need the full picture concerning AMD's plans for the R9 300 series, which hopefully arrives next week during Computex. Most of the series is expected to be a rebrand, with the Fiji XT and Fiji VR being the only truly new options, but time will tell for certain.
