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.
AMD does not want all of the attention to be on NVIDIA since they are holding their GeForce event right now. So they have also setup a brief demonstration of their upcoming Radeon R9 290X graphics card and have allowed many sites to post benchmark tests at 4K resolution.
Yesterday we posted some benchmarks of the R9 290X in 3DMark and 3DMark 11. In those tests we noted that the R9 290X was still beat by NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX Titan. Well the same source as those benchmarks has done a proper review of the R9 290X so now we not only have synthetic benchmarks, but actual game benchmarks as well!
It looks like PConline is one of the first media outlets to get their hands on an AMD R9 290X graphics card. They have run their first round of tests on the card and it looks like it is no as much of a “Titan Killer” as everyone thought! PConline has run the card through both 3DMark’s Fire Strike and 3DMark 11′s Extreme benchmark.
A whole new series of Radeon Graphic cards was announced earlier this day by XFX. A string of models was unveiled which included the R9 290X, R9 290, R9 280X, R9 270X, R7 260X and the R7 250. All these form part of XFX’s first attempt towards the AMD range of GPUs and all the above mentioned models feature AMD’s 2nd generation award winning GCN Architecture and PowerTune Technology.
The official presentation for the AMD Radeon R9 290X and R9 290 graphics cards have been leaked. This gives us more official information that ever before about these two new cards from AMD! While the AMD R9 Series cards were announced at AMD’s GPU 14 event last month AMD never revealed any specifications or performance […]
Specifications of both the models, the R9 290X and the much more affordable in contrast R9 290, have been unveiled by some of the Japanese retailers. As soon as the R9 290X was announced by AMD, there were rumors circulating the web pages about the specs of it and it turns out that most of the specs revealed do match the rumored ones. It is equipped with 2,816 stream processors, up to 1000 MHz of GPU clock and offers single-precision floating point performance of 5.16 TFLOP/s. it also features a GDDR5 memory of 4 GB with a memory interface of 512-bit. The interface is clocked at 5.00 GHz and this generates a bandwidth of 320 GB per second.
Rumors about the Radeon R9 290X Battlefield 4 bundle being postponed for unknown reasons have now been taken care of as the bundle is now available for pre order with a specific number of Swedish retailers. Now that the pre order availability of the bundle has been confirmed with this news, the specifications have also been unveiled. We also have access to the benchmark score in 3DMark 2013. Much of the specifications which we managed to get our hands on came from the leaked images of the GPU-z and these were for the Radeon R9 280X, Radeon R7 260X and Radeon R7 240 but now we have much information about the R9 290X as well.
While AMD announced their flagship R9 290X last week at their GPU 14 event it was really unclear what the official specifications of the card were, especially the clock speeds. A source with access to a R9 290X revealed to TechPowerUp not only the clock speeds but also ran many benchmarks with the card.
So much news has been circulating around the social media lately about AMD’s latest release of the Radeon R9 290X graphics card. Online bulletins keep playing around with the official release dates while many wait in anticipation. It was only until the press gathering in Turkey that the guessing games were over and so much curiosity was put to an end by AMD as it announced the official release of its fastest and most high end product in line. The press NDA of all specifications will come to an end on 15th of October this year at exactly 12 AM EST (Berlin time).
