AMD R9 290X Video Card Details and More Revealed

Gaming Illustrated spoke with both AMD PR Manager Robert Hallock, and AMD Product Manager, Simon NG about the new R9 video card line. Hallock made no bones about it, telling Gaming Illustrated, "With the console wins, AMD is now the backbone of high end gaming... Now that we are the standard platform for all major gaming development it's never been easier to develop games - be it on PC, Xbox One or the PlayStation 4." (AMD, PC)

Nice card but from reviews it sounds like a jet engine and runs hot. I will wait out for nVidia and see what their response is. The 780ti looks promising and I would still love to get a 780 Classified if eVGA drops the price.

Yea i have seen the benchmarks of this card and it it fast and the price are extremely good for the performance, but i don't want another hairfan. Its way to loud. Sure if AMD decides to send me one to use in my utube page i will gladly put it in my case. Im actually gonna try the green team for once. Waiting to see how 780ti performs :)

you see - this is why AMD always fail. Good spec, good price, let down by horrendous cooling and/or crap drivers.

I have my GTX780 for a good reason and I'm happy with it (esp overclocked). AMD is just not worth the hassle and the noise.

AMD is taking over gaming. Nice breakdown chart in the story. I'll have to check the reviews.

One day I will have enough cash to drop money for a really good gaming PC. The sub $200 AMD card I got last year has done me great so far. Until then I will keep with my consoles.
