    Now that the new AMD graphics cards for this season have been announced. What do you think so far?

    Yes we know some people might want to select all answers, pick the one that's most relevant to you.

    Well I think I really really want to see your review Wizzard ;) and would love to get a R9 290X if the price is right:rockout:

    I wonder if an i7 970 would bottlenecking these video cards, I'm at 3.4ghz for now but I guess at 4ghz it should be alright:confused: Anyone:twitch:

    Pricing and specs. If it can beat a Titan or trade blows equally within games, say within 1-3% of each other, AND it is priced to within the 780's range, then I'd probably get one.

    audio + mantle = yes plz

    i hope some DAW/VST makers end up using the audio stuff to offload the cpu... same goes for cg rendering with mantle (or just let's have more opencl renderers)

    It depends on performance when OCed under water. Hopefully it's an acceptable OCer.

    I'll definitely see how it goes against nvidia's cards and the card I'm currently using. I'll buy it if it's within my budget.

    I need to know the price and were it sits with its competition. If it is not what I expected, then another GTX 670 for me

    I've been a devout green fiend for over a decade but I am so tempted with the r290x given the titbits of info I've seen so far.

    There should be an check box for waiting for 20nm shrink, that's what I'm truly waiting for the true next level GPUs, currently contented till the shrink.

    There should be an option for, 'No', and/or 'My old HD7970 still works just fine'.

    I would pick one of those two.

    I got a 7970 ghz edition, when I looked at the post of Crossfiring them most people say its not worth it. When I saw the reviews for the R9 280 and see (imo) such a tiny difference between them, I say lets sit this one out. Seriously global PC sales in decline and these companies are not doing their BEST to create their ABSOLUTE BEST, then we have a problem.

    So my Vote is as CBRworm said, My HD 7970 still kicks ass, and taking names!

    Already with the green team. Just waiting to see how the 290x and 290 are in hopes of Nvidia 780 price drops for another in SLI.

    I voted green camp but that doesn't mean I don't think the new R9 290(X) is interesting.
