Default AMD Announces Radeon R9 290X

AMD announced market availability of the Radeon R9 290X, its new flagship graphics card, with which it plans to take on the likes of the GeForce GTX TITAN. Based on the swanky new 28 nm "Hawaii" silicon, the R9 290X features 2,816 stream processors, 176 texture memory units, 64 ROPs, and a 512-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface, holding 4 GB of memory. The chip offers hardware support for DirectX 11.2, OpenGL 4.3, and is ready for AMD's ambitious Mantle API. Various AIB partners should begin offering their R9 290X cards today, which all stick to AMD's reference design. The biggest feature of the card, in the end, is its stunning price of $549.99. If it manages to beat the GTX TITAN, NVIDIA is in a world of pain with its high-end lineup.
