    AMDs Top Secret Mission...something big is coming

    Hello everyone,

    We just released a new video a few minutes ago and I wanted to share it with you right away, take a look: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zvL3BZzr4Io

    I'm pretty sure you can guess "something big is coming"...okay, that's all I can say at the moment

    Hmm... looks suspiciously like a R9 295 (or 290 X2), whatever the name is going to be, it looks like a dual 290X card. I suppose there has to be something to try and counter/mitigate the Titan-Z

    Well the Latin on it roughly translates to "two are better than one" so it's a fair assumption.

    That was my immediate guess when I say the video, but I think it is more likely to be something to replace the 7990 and not to go head to head with the Titan-Z.

    Re: AMDs Top Secret Mission...something big is coming

    Kinda stunned that its using a 120 rad. I've no experience with water cooling but with 240mm AIO CPU solutions not being uncommon, how does a card which could potentially have a TDP two, three or more times that of say a FX8350 get by with a single 120 rad?

    Got to be the double 290, I think the single rad is a decoy.

    What's puzzling me is the pair of golf gloves.
