    Available next week. As in Rocktober 3rd. really?
  • Will the drivers be optimized for hl3 steamos edition?
  • ThraxThrax 🐌 Austin, TX Icrontian
    Yes.
  • csimoncsimon Acadiana Icrontian
    Tush let me know what kind of ppd you get out of it and if it's better in that respect to comparably priced 7*0 GTX.
  • TushonTushon I'm scared, Coach Alexandria, VA Icrontian
    Certainly. I'm guessing it might drop, but the majority of my production comes from another machine anyways.

    What I can say: you won't have to wait very long.

    Well, looks like when the money becomes available I'll have to grab me a few new PC parts and switch over from my Nvidia to these. I haven't used Radeon in I can't tell you how many years.

    This is relevant because it is from a movie called, "I'm so excited"

    @Tushon, are you sure you're not the guy on the right?

    If I get a review piece of hardware, I'll dress up like that.

    If my intuitions are correct then the R9 290X will beat Titan at F@h. It's already doing a number on the 780 for sure.
    Thrax can you comment on this - this week?
  • TushonTushon I'm scared, Coach Alexandria, VA Icrontian
    While Thrax hunts down the moles in his grass, I'll post a link which states October 15th is the release date.

    Oh, I know. I was making a joke about hunting down whoever was leaking stuff that is under embargo. You know, because he shares features with a certain someone ...

    and given that he said it was soon, and was not date specific. :)

    SAPPHIRE 100361SR Radeon R9 290X 4GB GDDR5 Video Card pre-release.

    Radeon R9 290X Priced at $729.99 on Newegg.com ...I don't see this price though, and if it's true hopefully it will go down upon release.

    I know one thing though, out of my price range for sure.

    I've been sitting with my credit card in hand searching for one of these card. Now that they're looking to be $700+ I'm a bit torn. I talked myself up to $600 as "good enough to replace two 4 year old 5870s. I'd consider a cheap 7870 or 7950 CF if I didn't run EVERYTHING in full-screened windowed mode. Decisions Decisions...

    I'm going from a single 570 and can't go into a crossfire solution due to running multiple windowed clients of EVE, other games will be fullscreen, so I need most powerful single card solution. This looks like it :D
  • TushonTushon I'm scared, Coach Alexandria, VA Icrontian
    The buttmad of commenters over a price they found via speculation in hidden HTML code was quite lulzy though.
  • waxwax the neroberg Icrontian
    I'm buttmad because I can't buy this thing yet.
  • waxwax the neroberg Icrontian
    Tushon, are you getting a 290 or 290X?
  • TushonTushon I'm scared, Coach Alexandria, VA Icrontian
    Extremely likely that I'll be going for 290X.
  • waxwax the neroberg Icrontian
    I've been incessantly refreshing my Newegg search query in hopes to be able to actually order one of these fuckers today.
