AMD HD 2900Pro Cards Now Available on Newegg

While we have been hearing rumors of the HD2900Pro for some time now, and AMD has just recently released the card to the public, all that press does no good if customers can't even get the card. Fortunately, American online PC part retailer Newegg thought ahead, and made sure to stock plenty of the HD2900. You can now buy three variants of the 2900Pro, from a Sapphire model with 512MB of VRAM for $265USD, to one with an impressive 1 GB of VRAM for a reasonable $330USD.Source: Newegg

I'm about to order number two. The bank should of cleared my check by now.

Then I have to go running around town, and hope that I make it back to the post office in time.

If not it will be the early wake up call to the post office before it closes.

Bam just ordered number 2.

I didn't want to wait around with them saying that the 512bus will be limited. Then most likely there will only be 256bus on the market soon.

I'm runnning a 37" @ 1920 x 1080 so I'm in the same boat...

So $60 is worth the extra 512mb, and ddr4 at the higher resolutions...

Well, its ordered 1gb w/ ddr4 and a new dvi cable for hdcp :rockout:

Are you still running that fx62? Are you thinking about a x2 5000+ unlocked at all, or do you have any "secret" processor(s) that you are using?

wish my 24" widescreen supported hdmi, damn it. but i have to say gaming on the 1gb2900xt @ 1920x1200 is AWSOME!!! the pro will be equally as good :-)

just had my first online Quake wars match, im rather impressed. may pick up a pro later this year or early 08 once i get rid of the current cooling loop for my cpu (its blocking the 2nd pci-e slot :( )

Don't know

What I do know is that these are HD2900XTs clocked down. With the right cooling it should be just as good.

the only thing is that theres a chance they may be lesser "XT's" that had cores not as good as the XTs. like most ATI pros tho, it may come down to luck of the draw

So I guess then I'll go head and buy this GPU, the only thing I hate is having regrets I don't want to buy this and then the 2950's come out cheaper and better then this, you know what I mean.

Oh and which one should I buy Sapphire or HIS, I was thinking HIS since it seem to come with a lot more cabels and such plus some sort of Half Life game which I am hoping is the Black Box not sure though.

Whilst looking for the Pro in the UK I came across the Sapphire 2900XT 512mb for £205.....any UK owners think that is a decent deal? Are there any decent overclocks to be had with the sapphire model?

I suppose it's too early to know outta the Pro's what manufacturers will be like for overclocking, there is a peice on VR zone that I was reading earlier (at work) saying that half of them will not clock past 650 on the core :mad: Dont know how they come to that conclusion and if its true or just scaremongery.

It has always been this way... It's a matter of which you want more, I guess. The 2950's won't be out untill Q1 08'.
