This is our coverage of the Radeon R9 290X announcement. We are not in Hawaii, but we will try to keep you updated with the latest developments in this topic (including latest leaks). Of course if you find anything that wasn’t mentioned here feel free to post it in the comments!
Update 39 END
The livestream has ended, AMD did not provide any official specifications on the new Radeon R9 290X other than some basic information about the GPU itself.
This is where we end our coverage, thanks for dropping by!
We are slowly moving on to games. I will update this post once we hear more about the Hawaii GPU.
They are still talking about audio. Chill out and wait for BF4 videos! T4C Fantasy came up with a good name for their processor: SPU Super Processing Unit.
AMD Radeon R9 290X caught on first video.
Hawaii GPU has more than 6 billion transistors!
AMD talking about Gaming Evolved program. TressFX, 4k gaming, Eyefinity. Still no Hawaii GPU.
The R9 290X has 2816 SPs and costs $600!
Livestream is super laggy at the moment, we still wait untill all issues are resolved. If you have no sound, remember it’s all about graphics TM :)
AMD IS SWITCHING TO LIVESTREAM
Today only reference board will be shown. AIB partners will showcase their models in October.
Do I need to say more?
PCPer: Chris Hook explains why shit is broken:
The rumor has it that AMD is doing the last minute changes to their newest Catalyst drivers ;)
Apparently it was YOUTUBE who shut down the video:
So, the issue with the stream is in relation to the music they were playing. YouTube didn’t like it. The stream will go live when the event starts.
