AMD has unveiled its new R9 and R7 range of Radeon video cards aimed at video and image professionals, as well as video gamers.

The two ranges of graphics cards have been designed to run UltraHD (3840x2160) displays, with support for non-tiled 2160p displays to be enabled with a future driver update.

The R9 290X, 290 and 280X graphics cards are the high performance premium products, while the R7 270X, 260X and 250 are in the budget range.

Prices for the R7 250 start at $US89 and go all the way to $US299 for the R9 280X, with local pricing and availability to be announced by the vendor.

In addition to the new hardware, AMD has announced the Mantle platform for video game developers to enable easier porting of games from PC to consoles, and vice versa.

In the audio space, AMD has introduced TrueAudio technology that enables software developers to use a programmable audio pipeline on the GPU.
