It looks like some slides showing the AMD Radeon R9 290X performance results in both Uber and CrossFireX modes have been leaked. AMD recently allowed many sites to post 4K performance previews (which we covered), but some sites actually posted the entire performance presentation.
When AMD announced their brand new Radeon R9 290X flagship graphics card last week at their GPU 14 event many people noticed something missing from the cards. There were no CrossFireX connectors on the card. This is because AMD will be using new CrossFireX technology with the new Hawaii cards.
If you are an CrossFireX (AMD’s multi-GPU solution) user then you are well aware of the long standing issue of ‘runt’ frames produced when multiple AMD GPUs are used in CrossfireX mode. Even though the performance looked choppy if you were using a program like FRAPS it would appear that the card was churning out great performance. AMD will finally deliver a long-awaited driver update to fix the ‘runt’ frames issue.
I looks like someone has got their hands on a pair of AMD Radeon HD 7990 “Malta” reference-design graphics cards. Someone sent the photo you see below to the guys over at TechPowerUp, which shows the two cards in operation inside of a pretty nice looking system. Just late last month AMD surprised everyone by showing off the HD 7990 at the Game Developers Conference (GDC).
