Thoughts on AMD's new R200 GPU line?

I wonder how the R9 290x compares to a 7990?

so will my 7970ghz be able to use mantle or do I have to get one of the new cards?

Naming is still simple just like Intel. But I still previous one because it's more compact than having Rx xxx

Damn, I was hoping they'd announce the date. I guess just buying a 7970 soon wouldn't hurt. The features and performance don't seem like a huge upgrade and I dont see the price falling that far.

R9 290 and 290X are the new ones. The 280 is a 7970 rebrand with faster clock and reduced launch price, much like what the 770 is to the 680. The release is around 20th of October, maybe later for the non-ref models. The 280 may come out earlier as when HIS accidentally leaked their models, it appeared there.
