Yeah I got lucky there. The interesting thing today, the 7970 and the R9-280X are the same price right now brand new. I think they need to drop the prices of the 7970 a bit more if they want to clear the stock.

Roll on the 15th for me, lets hope the 290X turns out to be a goodun, and lets hope I manage to order one ok lol.
Yeah i think the pricing is a bit odd as it's essentially the same card isn't it Maybe they're planning some mad price drop to clear out the old stock in th comming wk's.
Only 7 days to go mate

Yeah, all the other models are available now in the UK Stormy, AMD are being very tight lipped about the 290/290X, it's very annoying but it's less than a week until release now so not long to wait until we see what all the hype was about. All I can say is it better be good!

I've heard you are able to crossfire a HD 7970 and an R9 280X, and also without a crossfire bridge. Nice to see a company is finally making use of PCI 3.0 instead of using an external link.

That's good Paul you got some good money for it I on the other hand undecided and I am not sure it would be worth it since I will pull the same amount of frames as a single 290x

@ Steve and Paul Ganjiry ADDRAM I do believe the 290 will be priced about a $100 more I doubt it will be 599.00 or 699.00 I truly believe AMD is playing with people here 280 =350.00 the 290 most likely will be 499.00 like the 7970 when it was Ghz Ed

Tommy, most of what I'm reading is the 280X is a rebranded 7970 GHz ED card, slightly overclocked and the ability to increase voltages a little more. If all the cards released today are rebranded 7000 serise cards and the 280X is a rebranded 7970 GHz edition, where is AMD going to go with the 290X? What is it going to be a rebrand of? Maybe a double 280X? Also, only the high end 280X is $350, many of the others are $300. The one I've read reviewed most is the Asus DC2T which is $310. And it is a tripple slot card which will make CFX a lot more difficult. It just seems to me that the reviews I've read raise more questions than answers.

Well I assume the 290 is a 7990 but a single GPU

You can find plenty double slot 7970 ghz ed that Asus one is just a Tank

you can also get 7990 in double slot form as well thinner and dual fans
