accord to everything I have red so far, the R9 280 is nothing more than a 7970ghz, while the R9 290x will be something like the 7990's. But that in the hell is the R9 290 suppose to be? They have released the new cards on newegg, but there is no info anywhere about the R9 290. Could someone clarify this card for me please?

The 290X is a single GPU card with 2816 shaders.

The 290 is identical to the 290X except that it only has 2560 shaders.

thats it? so one will be priced around $700 and the other $500 im guessing. Just because it has less shaders well, I guess I will just get an R9 280x for crossfire then.

the 290s are released on the 15th I hear.

Although don't take my word for it, just something I read somewhere

It's just AMD's way of doing the 780->TITAN thing.

Early rumours at saying R290X are neck and neck with 780 when overlocked, so the standard R290 will fill the gap between the 770 and 780 nicely.

I think the 290x is the x970 card, 290 is the x950 card, 280x is the x870 card and so on. 290x is not a dual gpu like the 7990, it is just AMD's new single gpu flagship card.
