There's conflicting reports of "End of November" through "First quarter 2014."

I wouldn't buy those cards unless you plan on running custom water cooling.
From what I've seen they run at about 100 degrees celsius even if you're watching YouTube.
AMD cards have always put out a lot of heat if you have multiple monitors, so this is really nothing new.

You realize that they designed the 290 to run at 90c, right?

And that's a terrible design.

If i run 1080 single monitor with this card playing say, BF4 on ulta settings, would it still go up to 94oC. Is that temperature only for when the card is fully stressed on some crazy resolutions?

100c while watching YouTube...... Source?

YouTube runs mostly off CPU, so I don't get how a person can even imply that for any gpu.

I got mine today and I must admit, the noise thing is blown quite out of proportion. I already have five fans in my pc so I could not even tell the difference, in addition to using headphones much of the time. The card is great, I wanted non reference but as of right now I am extremely satisfied.
