Am I getting an actually new card or is it just a rebrand? Find out here: http://linustechtips.com/main/topic/222806-what-rx-200-series-card-is-what-7000-series-card/

Expect them to be honourable? Where did I say that? This list is just so that people have a reference of all the rebranded cards. I have nothing against AM or NVIDIA.

Probably the mods don't think that anybody would need such a list.

When buying a used GPU, I would LOVE to know that I could buy a 670 cheaper than a 760, since it's essentially the same GPU.

This can se people  A LOT OF MONEY!

The GTX 760 wasn't a rebranded 670. The 760 used a GK104 configuration that hadn't been used before. The 670 was only rebranded as the 760 Ti (OEM), there were no retail cards rebranded from the 670.

 

For reference:

 

GTX 660 Ti: 1344 cores, 192-bit bus

GTX 670: 1344 cores, 256-bit bus

 

GTX 760 (OEM): 1152 cores, 192-bit bus

GTX 760: 1152 cores, 256-bit bus

GTX 760 Ti (OEM): 1344 cores, 256-bit bus (same as 670)

Thanks. I'll update the original post as soon as I can.

Your numbers are correct. And that still looks like a rebrand. Same GK104 GPU, just nerfed? lol.

Then Again, I'd rather buy the older 670 since it can be bought cheaper :lol:  :lol:

That's not what a rebrand is. Unless you're saying the GTX 970 is a rebranded 980? The i5-4690K is a rebranded i7-4790K? They all use the same physical chip, it's just a matter of what features are enabled. But they're still different products, whether the difference is artificial or not. That's how the industry works. Rebrand is when they're the exact same product with two different names. Taking the same base and carving it two different ways isn't rebranding.

You're right.

Unless the Card has the same amount of "cores" it's not a rebrand, since it's from a different yield quality.

@Speedbird just a FYi, the R7  370 is the same core as the r7 265, not the 270. the 270 has the same amount of stream processors as the 270x, just with lower clock speeds.

You seem to have forgotten a lot of the older Nvidia rebrainds - 8800 gtx becoming 9800 and so on.

Good list though, will use it as a reference.

I decided not to go older than the GT200 series, as most cards older than that are irrelevant today.

But weren't the GT 200 also rebranded to some extend? It's been some time but i seem to remember them also being partly rebrands.

Also, A friend's bro uses 7950 GT and my best friend uses 9600 gt.

not too old :D

Maybe they were. They are Tesla, so they could be rebrands from the 8 or 9 series. This thread was written for people who are upgrading from the previous generation and want to avoid buying the same card again. Anybody upgrading to a mid-range or high-end modern card from anything older than the 200 series will notice a performance improvement.

True true. Honestly, even rebranded cards usually have something improved. Look at R9 290 and R9 390. TDP is cut by about 70W. It also gets more and supposedly better memory.

Yes it should be called Refreshed, if there is improvements.

Rebrand is just slapping a new name with no improvements.
