    Already seeing a nice alternative Double Dissipation cooler by XFX for the R9 280X

    That'll be the R9 280X then.

    Based on launch prices, absolutely. The 7870 was actually more expensive on launch than the R9 280X ($349 v $299). The problem is you can now get a 7970 for $299 before taxes. So you can already buy a card that gives you 7970 performance at 7870 launch prices. It's called a 7970 Renaming it to the R9 280X and charging the same price for it doesn't really change much. And while AMD can't do much about etailer discounting and price slippage through a generation, they probably shouldn't expect many plaudits from the enthusiast community when their new product launch actually just gives us the same products at the same prices....

    Re: News - AMD unveils Radeon R9 and R7 series graphics cards in Hawaii

    Yeah absolutely. I'll be really disappointed most products are rebrands/very minor tweaks, especially given the comment from the event:

    "Today, we're announcing the AMD Radeon R9 and R7 series. A top-to-bottom product lineup! All new."
    (from http://techreport.com/review/25423/l...ii-gpu14-event)

    I expect they might be very similar with just bumps to frequencies, maybe a tweaked memory controller. If they've gone to GCN1.2 though they might have done enough to claim a new chip in my book.

    Re: News - AMD unveils Radeon R9 and R7 series graphics cards in Hawaii

    Hmm, that live blog suggests all R9 cards will get TrueAudio and support DX11.2, so perhaps they have reworked the same basic designs but with tweaked shaders and new IP blocks. If that's the case, then I'd agree that they can reasonably claim new chip, even if the basic geometry and layout is the same.

    Interestingly, 300GB/s bandwidth can be done with 4.6Gbps over 512bit, or 6.25Gbps over 384bit. Wonder if they've gone fast or wide for the 290X? Fast would suggest reworked memory controller which might benefit Kaveri as well?

    Re: News - AMD unveils Radeon R9 and R7 series graphics cards in Hawaii

    best to wait till it get reviewed and compare it to the previous generation, whether that worth upgrading since I got a 6990 in my rig if the performance is worth 40 percent more then I consider upgrading to a 8990

    Gibbo from OcUK has leaked some info:

    http://forums.overclockers.co.uk/sho...46&postcount=2
    http://forums.overclockers.co.uk/sho...postcount=2770

    So:
    1.)R270X = HD7870XT and is £155 to £175
    2.)R280= slightly lower clocked HD7970GE and is £229 to £249
    3.)R290X = slightly faster than GTX780 and around the same price

    So,the R290 will probably be in-between an HD7970GE and a GTX780 in performance and price.

    Supposedly none of the cards announced are rebrands:

    I'm hoping that the 290x will be priced below £400.

    AMD exist to make money from you, if that's what you mean. You could just write them a cheque if you prefer

    They don't need them. They've got hardware accelerated data move engines for it instead.

    260x surely will become budget card of choice for many. I know it's what I'm looking forwards to seeing benchmarked.

    Some more leaked R9 290X benchmarks:

    It seems to run at 800MHZ.
