Though we can't be sure about the validity of these benchmarks,Â*OCUK decided to leak the results for the Radeon R9-290 (non x model). In a chart where they convientiently 'blur' the 290 results. T...

This looks the more interesting card to me, esp if they can keep the thermals better controlled. At an expected price of $450? should be the real winner of the two.

If you can wait for custom design cards, the 290 is the one to go for, incredible value for money.

if is as good as it seems to be I'll be surprised if Nvidia dont lower price no?

What I am interested in now is how the 290x and 290 overclock under H20 because if the 290's overclock well I'll be happy with one of them and save a bit of cash..

Although in the long run I want something for 27inch sceen, although could add a second in a yrs time.

Suppose 850w will still cover it either way...

Well thats the plan, wait for those bad boys and hopefully they wont be too pricey. As it stands 290(non x) is a priority!

Nvidia must be real sad for not being able to rip people off anymore on Titan This could be great xmass for everyone willing to upgrade. R290 will surely be the winner.
Let's hope that Maxwell will kick the performance up a proper bit so that AMD will have to come out with something really cool. Hopefully this time it won't be so late.Think they have spent too much time lately messing with consoles and that took it's toll.Now they shouldn't really have problems like that.

I don't know m8... All this AMD launch is envolved in a cloud of oddness.
They said the same thing about R9 290X out-of-the-box beating the GTX 780 but, is not what we are seeing from real world owners. I have just came from OC.net forums and the R9 290X benchmark scores are NOT beating the GTX 780 benchmark scores. In fact, they are all waiting for watercooled R9 290Xs to step up and prove AMD and reviewers right.
It seams there are two kinds of R9 290X: the one reviewers got and the one users are getting.
To add this, OC3D and a couple others, are saying quite the opposite. That GTX 780 is an overall better card, that overclocks better and performs better.

That being said, if this R9 290 results prove to be true, then, I agree. It will be the the big winner, indeed!

Let's only hope it's true!

It might be that when the card ships it is in silent mode and needs to be changed.

$ilent from OCN with his 290x at 1125/1450 on air.



It's to note Gibbo achieved 1200/1600 on his 290 i assume on water also. It seems the cards are fine they just have an extremely inadequate reference cooling solution.

1200/1600 no volt mod? Sounds great, wonder what temps are under water and how far these will go with some volts added

why would anyone run this card on anything besides the silent mode? it throttles like a lunatic on uber mode and its freaking 50+db from a meter away, that's like having a vacuum cleaner going off in the other room at all times, after some long gaming sessions you are going to want to rip out the damn card and toss it out of the window.

If you want this on air wait for custom cooling. If your going straight to water get one. If your like me and will be using it on air but plan on water wait for customs. I want a 290 lightening edition.

scan.co.uk have the XFX 7990 in stock @ £371.75

Curiously the e-mail I got the link from them claimed it has a Free 750w PSU with it. (and ofc the 3 Free games)

Maybe there was an error in that mail, sounds too good to be true!

£309.79 Ex VAT
£371.75 Inc VAT
If I had the spare cash I would be calling them




BTW : Gibbo got his 1,200 using the Asus BIOS which allows voltage adjustment

OC3D had some odd results in their testing giving Much lower results than other sites, but even so their 290X did pretty well - just not as well as Tom's example for example. and he Really didn't like the reference cooler xD
I am actually pretty curious why his results were So Much worse than others - I know TTL is a Genuine guy who reports what he sees ofc!

I am also holding out to see how the R9-290 turns out - Might even be able to afford one soon if Lucky!!! (going to miss that 7990 sale though -.-)

As well as the lightening edition. Though i recently discovered they aren't voltage locked like i thought Afterburner isn't updated to adjust voltage. So people are flashing to Asus Bios to use AI tweak or whatever it's called to adjust voltage.

It runs too hot, I'd rather a 780 because there is no way I could play games knowing my GPU was at 95c. I'll wait to see what people like Asus do with after market coolers, however if they take too long with it I'd just wait for the 880 at that point.

Simple solution if your in the market for one, don't buy reference. This is by all means AMD's fermi. Watercooling has already proved these things aren't incredibly hot, they just have possibly the most inadequate cooler on them. Custom cooling should bring it down. Had they designed a reference cooler like the 780/Titan it would've cost more.

So wait and see what the aftermarket solutions do or wait for the 780Ti to launch so the 780 price drops.

In conclusion wait a bit before you spend 650$ on a 780 when a month from now you might could have it for 450-500$

Np man i would have one but i'm waiting to see what happens by the end of november. On one hand i want to wait for a 780 price drop but on the other these 290s once OCed are pretty monstrous. If the 290 matches the 780 or is around 5% of the 780 performance i'll probably have one, though i'll still have to wait for custom cooling solutions.

Then again for benching purposes i want a 290x....i'm all over the place right now.

We are very close to the official launch of the Radeon R9 290, a slower sibling of R9 290X.

Chinese forums are always worth a check before major announcements. Today a member of Chiphell forums posted a first preview of Sapphire R9 290 graphics card, including some photos and two 3Dmark tests (here we go again).

Performance varies in both tests, while R9 290 is actually slower in 3Dmark 11 by 3%, but outperforms GTX 780 by 9% in 3DMark Fire Strike.

The leaker claims that the score should actually be better in with the AMD card, the lower score could’ve been caused by unsupported drivers. That’s partially a reason why GPU-Z cannot read the data correctly, at least it read the clocks right.

Sapphire Radeon R9 290

Sapphire’s R9 290 looks exactly the same as their 290X, that includes 6+8-pin power connectors and missing CrossFire fingers, but that’s not surprising of course.

We are pretty much familiar with the rest of the design. Sapphire was the only manufacturer to put more stickers on the cooler, rather than only on the fan. The label clearly states that we are looking at non-X model, which is also confirmed by the stickers at the back. You can also spot the BIOS switch, proving that R9 290 will support Uber and Quiet modes too.

If you somehow missed the specs of this card then let me make a short recap. R9 290 is based on Hawaii PRO processor, which sports 2560 Stream Processors (290X has 2816). The number of ROPs is still 64, but Texture Units were reduced to 160. The R9 290 is also using 512-bit interface with 4GB GDDR5 memory, which is a very good option considering the price (which is expected around $450).

AMD Radeon R9 290 will be released on October 31st.
