Europe is going to.
I don't really get the pricing rumors. 649 EUR incl VAT wouldn't normally result in a price of 550 USD.
EU Pricing has been confirmed at 499.99 by Sapphire.
This just popped up about an hour ago.
he said 12:01 ET, Thats Eastern Time.
Alhtough thats a bit odd, isnt Kyle in texas?
This review will be published at 11:01PM ET tonight.
at least we know it's <$649 and is faster than a 780!
All this talk about noise is with the stock cooler right?
Hopefully something like the Gigabyte windforce or Asus triple slot DorkFortress or whatever it's called will be able to keep the 290x in uber mode without being too loud.
I haven't bought a mid-high end video card with a reference blower cooler in a while and don't plan on doing it again for a long time. My friend's GTX 670 is too loud and my 5850 was when overclocked too.
Yeah....Dallas, which is central....but technically it's midnight somewhere......as in where I live!! Craptastic boonie-ville NY.
I didn't see that anywhere. But wahoo! Wonder when they'll be up on sale?
Off topic.....how do you feed this new audio stuff from the GPU to your receiver? Is there some kind of cable and where does it connect to the MB....never done this .
loud is pretty subjective.
my reference 7970 was deemed loud by reviewers, but i dont notice it.
Maybe the R290x will be different in terms of noise levels idk
when you have other means to cool your processor it doesnt matter
Have you heard a windforce compared to a reference amd cooler?
it is loud
Talking about gaming performance alone? The 780 already devalued the Titan.(Giggles) Waits to hear the collective groan at midnight from $1,000+ Nvidia Titan owners as they realize their cards have just lost half their value.
I for one think it is an injustice! The fact AMD is holding card releases just to screw up your schedule for upgrading is a horrendous thing.
Someone should create a petition on Change.org to stop this heinous business practice!
