So there you go, Elpida, Hynix, it don't matter. What matters is voltage control.

Asus BIOS FTW.

By the way this is an R290 I've flashed with R290X BIOS, works a tread, but shaders not unlocked, but can now hit 1220 core and 6600 RAM on the regular R290 as well. At these speeds this also obliverates Titan. Incredible value!


Looks like 7950 to 7970 all over again.

What?

Sounds like something that has to do with an excessive amount of drinking.

Well, that's nice. I'm probably not going to be upgrading graphics cards this cycle, but it's always nice to see competition pushing prices down lower.

Once we perfect building Mechs, I expect there to be a factory in Mexico pumping out a brand call Mechsican. I wanna buy me a Mechsican.

So if the forums are to be believed

30% less cost than the 290X with a MSRP of $550 = $385

will net you 6% less performance than a stock 290X

That's quite the deal AMD is giving out

And if you OC the 290, you'll get slightly better than stock 290X performance

AMD is finally firing on all cylinders with this product launch

The 280X, 290, and 290X are all very attractive products for their price.

It's hard to decide honestly.

For me, I'd avoid any of the reference coolers and go for one of the boards made by a 3rd party.

doubt it will be that cheap, $399 at minimum and most likely $449.

definitely waiting for custom coolers (twin frozr, DCU2, vapor-x/toxic-x, etc.) as the 290x is currently being throttled with the reference cooler. Imagine how good a watercooled/custom cooled one of these is going to be? and now imagine the lightning/toxic/matrix versions... can't wait! (though i still might end up going 280x crossfire, waiting for non reference 290x to see how well it overclocks though, as i can either go 280x crossfire with no overclocking or overclock the hell out of a 290x...)

The best it got is 10715 on an OC?

You said it obliterated the Titan, that's not Oblierating s***.

This is tho

21.8% faster than the OC 290X

Nobody thought the MSRP of the 290X would be $550

Boy were we wrong in a good way.

If the MSRP for the 290 hits $399, it'll do really well IMO.
