    Ahead of its formal launch, various AIB-branded Radeon R9 290X graphics card packages smiled for the camera, revealing three things - they're all based on AMD's reference design, barring minor factory-overclock, they're otherwise identical, and that it could be a while before we'll see non-reference design R9 290X graphics cards. Pictured below are cards from three AIB partners, Sapphire, Club3D, and GIGABYTE. Barring Club3D, the other two offer Origin keys to Battlefield 4 (standard edition) as part of the package. We know of one other AIB that offers Battlefield 4, XFX.

    I'm waiting for Gigabyte to do their "Sell card plus our 450W cooler as a bundle but we wont cover card damages" thing. Could be amusing.

    How do you play at that resolution with just a couple of 6870s ? I have 670 SLI, but it barely gives smooth frame rates at the same resolution.

    It depends on the game I'm playing. If I play something like TF2, it will run pretty good. If I run something like Farcry 3, it won't. I have 3 displays but I don't always play in eyefinity. Sometimes it's more than you need and it's not worth it. I work on my tower more than I game. I don't game as often as I used to.
