I hope there hasn't been any use of power tools this time around.

I have seen people getting close to 1300MHz under water on this GPU, which is what I am planning to do once mine arrives!

I'm not getting any of these GPUs because they're still 28nm, but even if I was, there's no way I'd be getting a stock cooler version :wtf:.

Are you guys gonna add Battlefied 4 in the bench suite? Also, are those "big-bang" drivers that AMD delayed R9 290 for out yet? Or at least will you be benching it with Catalyst 13.11 beta8? :)
