AMD's upcoming yet still unannounced R9 300 series has had more leaks than a sieve, and today we have yet another new leak. This time it concerns the pricing structure for everything from the R9 390X down to the R7 360, plus the names of the different GPU chips. The R9 390X 8GB model comes in at $499 and uses the Grenada chip, a reworked Hawaii chip (maybe Hawaii XT) found in the R9 290 line. An R9 390 8GB is $419 and again uses Grenada, but this time maybe the Hawaii Pro. Moving down to the R9 380 4GB will set you back $279, with the R9 380 2GB at $249. A Tonga chip is mentioned for both of those, which was previously seen in the R9 285.

The R7 370 4GB is priced at $209 and the R7 370 2GB at $179, which both use the Curaçao chip that was originally the Pitcairn from the HD 7870. The last card is the R7 360 2GB at $139 and using the Bonaire chip, previously seen in the HD 7790. All the chips are more than likely reworked and heavily tweaked models of the older ones, but it does lend credence to the RX 300 series being rebrands. There is no mention of the Fiji XT/Fiji VR at all in this leak, the rumored Radeon Fury parts, so we'll just have to see what those bring. The RX 300 series is expected to arrive on June 16, when E3 kicks off.

As is the case with rumors, do take everything here with a grain of salt.

Really? The flagship is going to be another friggin Hawaii chip? Basically a 290X with faster V-Ram? (sigh) And they really expect to get over $400 for it? WOW! I hope this is not true! Because if it is, AMD is done.
