I'd like to see the benchmarks between the Tahiti and this version of the Tonga chip. Is it worth upgrading or waiting? Only the head to head comparisons will tell the true story. With the HD7970's and 280X's still hold value or go to the wayside like so many predecessors before them.

I do not believe that the r9 380x is the first uncut Tonga GPU from AMD. Correct me if I am wrong, but the 2015 iMac 27-inch 5k display has a Radeon R9 M395X, which is a full fledged Tonga Core (2048 cores).

I wonder if they are gonna release a card with 384bit memory bus, to fill in the gap between this and 390/x? ... I still own dualx vaporx Svaporxxr9 280x and for now not planning an upgrade, cuz it serves me so nicely.
What do you guys think?

I don't know how much perfomance impact has increasing amount of ram sacrificing memory bus. Im pretty sure games still fly :) I like my 3G and 384bits bus ... hm are there any indications if they will launch something like 375 or 385 line like last year?
 
They are starting to go to the 4096 bit bus with the lower clock speeds (to allow high capacity Ram on cards) so the chances are anything "newer" designed will have this style of memory versus the 384bit 256 and 128 bit buses.
