Quoted from AMD Radeon R9 290X Reviews:
Check out these quotes from AMD Radeon R9 290X reviews & previews
"AMD’s R9 290X graphics card has reclaimed the single GPU crown from Nvidia’s GTX Titan. There is no doubting it boasts the performance credentials of a class leading graphics card and with AMD’s new PowerTune, Eyefinity, 4K and TrueAudio tweaks the functionality-aspect of AMD’s new flagship is highly attractive. We look forward to seeing what AMD’s graphics card partners can offer in the way of innovative cooling and PCB designs and additional features or overclocks. Whatever they choose to do they’ve got one mighty fine GPU to work with and a price that will take most people by surprise (in a positive way)."
"Forged with its latest GCN 1.1 architecture at centre, the AMD R9 290X sports a cutting edge Hawaii XT chipset that sets out to better Nvidia's cards - right up to the mighty GTX Titan - for a considerable discount. And unlike the 260X and 270X cards released earlier this year, which were simple rebrands of the existing HD 7790 and 7870 GPUs respectively, this is the company's most forward-thinking entry in the series yet."
"The Radeon R9 290X is an extremely powerful graphics card, faster than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 780 in almost every benchmark, and faster than the Titan in more than a few. With 4K resolution, which of course is still very exotic for all but the early adopters, the Radeon R9 290X takes first place in every single benchmark. Nvidia still frequently does better when it comes to the frametimes, and the 780 and Titan cards are more quiet than the 290X."
"With the R9 290X, AMD has achieved something phenomenal. They have made extreme performance all that much more accessible to gamers by releasing a card that not only bucks current industry pricing trends but also looks towards the future with promising technologies Mantle and TrueAudio. Despite the fact that acoustics and power consumption may drag down the reference version in some respects, the R9 290X is a compelling enthusiast graphics card that has every right to brag about its supremacy."
"The R9 290X is a monster solution, but we want to see the custom cooled solutions from AMD partners, and soon."
