    Hours ago a new set of photos have leaked showing slides from the Radeon R9 390X, including specs. These slides have been shown board-partners, and somebody photographed them. Obviously you need to r...

    Hope we get at least a paper launch to piss on Nvidia's Titan launch.

    I'd like to see it already, possibly together with adaptive sync monitors.

    Well... and I thought people would hope to have a launch to get their hands on the cards, not just to piss some other people off :rolleyes:

    Also, interesting to see that cfx 290X still could be faster than the 390X at 4K. I'm really curious to see the cooling sollution on the 390X then.

    Somehow I have the feeling that only the 'bigger' WCE (water cooled edition) will have 8GB, the 'normal' 390X stock version might have 4GB. Not sure about custom cards though.

    Sounds like somebody wants to damage the sales of the titan x.
    I know I'm gonna be tagged as a hater, but I wouldn't be surprised if amd is behind all this. I seriously see many of their marketing strategies as being plain bad and childish. But that's just me.

    Well I can't wait to see what they bring to the table. I'm tired of leaked benchmarks from both parties that could very well be fake.

    That should make things interesting if that turns out true.

    It's about 60% faster than 290X. OMG, I can't imagine dat price

    This leak actually states something which supports previous leaks... "HBM Dual-Linking"

    This is likely way AMD gets 8GB without doubling number of data paths from GPU, so 8GB cards will stay 4096bit.
    I now wonder if there is degraded performance somehow in comparison to 4GB version as this adds some complexity.

    Anyway, I still aim for 4GB water cooled version.

    If it's anything compared to the 290X's (8GB) performance, it would only cost €400 x 1.6 = 640, give or take a little for it's HBM.

    I'm also curious to see how they managed that. Hope it turns out okay really. I want the market to stay competitive.

    Just rumors, but here you have some pricings on the upcoming 300 series.

    Their Titan pricing is absurd (and 980 too). Also G-Sync proprietary limitations aren't anything great. But I'm not here to see only some kind of revenge. If 390x offers some reasonable performance at acceptable price, and adaptive sync monitors emerge, I'm ready for a switch. I'm on NV cards since Riva128 (with a short episode with 280x, while still keeping 680), but I'm not their fanboy. It just happened that every time I was upgrading, they had better offer. If AMD offer turns out to be better in terms of performance / price / standards support, then why shouldn't I grab it?

    R9 390X ~ 700$+ ???

    How much more than 700$ ? It's the WCE ? 4GB or 8GB version ?
    And specially when it will be available...
    I think AMD needs to clarify all this asap...

    actually I am hoping for a Nvidia paperlaunch....they have done it often enough and AMD rarley publishes something they can not sell right away.
    What i reall dislike though in both branches...those rebrandings...
    I think Nvidia started it a decade ago, but ATI/AMD tuned in.
    If one does not follow the news, on might think to buy something new ....fells a bit like a rip-off

    Impressive performance, but their pricing will either make or break them

    Considering that the 390 would be $700, the 390x could even be around $800. Which is quite a bit of money. This is not to mention that these are reference prices. The custom ones will likely be even higher.

    Since the Titan X will be around 1000$, I am not surprised about the 390x price tag.

    All this assuming those prices are true.

    Why? The sooner they bring something big out the more AMD would be forced to push something out.
    Thought you guys like competition?

    I am hoping AMD will post respectable prices again.

    I remember when I bought my 7950, had excellent performance compared to other cards at launch, AMD put them out at a really low price... but could not keep up with demand so all the online UK vendors price hiked them by £50 - £100 (USD74 - 148) and they still sold out.

    I don't need to see AMD sucker themselves as much as that time, but they tend to be much fairer than NVidia.

    They were really cheap at launch and then ****ing bitcoin miners once again ruined the GPU marked for fair price/performance.
