Sapphire Radeon R9 290 Pictured

A Sapphire-branded Radeon R9 290 was pictured by ChipHell. The card is based on AMD's reference board design, which in turn is identical to that of the R9 290X, including the same number of memory chips, the same combination of 6-pin and 8-pin PCIe power connectors, dual-BIOS, and the same number of VRM phases. Leaked specifications reveal that the R9 290 will feature 2,560 stream processors, 160 TMUs, 64 ROPs, and 4 GB of memory across a 512-bit wide memory interface. It's also reportedly priced at $449.99.

I'm eyeing this card more then the 290X... That price puts a grin on my face :) .. Hmmm would a i7 940 Overclocked at 4ghz bottleneck this GPU? :confused:
