Is Asetek designing GPU cooling for AMD Radeon R9 390X?

Leaks happening at the time before launch (whether its their own product or their rivals) is way too ‘perfect’, it obvious it gives a smell that its planted rather than leaked. Who planted it, or if its genuinely leaked is the oldest discussion you’ll see concerning leaks about information about any tech product.


But a new GPU cooler design for the AMD Radeon’s upcoming GPU- Radeon R9 390X- came at the time when Asetek released a press release, stating that it secured a design win with an undisclosed OEM customer- for a GPU liquid product. Asetek further states that its forecasted by its customer that this will result in 2-to-4 million dollars of revenue, and that the GPU is scheduled to be out by 1H 2015.

Assuming Asetek’s undisclosed-for-the-moment customer is AMD Radeon, specifically for R9 390X, AMD is probably implementing a hybrid cooling solution for its reference design. It probably makes sense since Asetek worked with AMD Radeon for AMD R9 295×2.

So far, its assumed that AMD Radeon R9 390X would be using Fiji GPU Cores, but since its months away from release, that’s a tale for another day.
