But if power rates are a drawback, I think it might be a good investment...say if they mine at 1000-1200kh/s drawing 200-300w.

I don't think they'll be double the speed. I've heard the number "30% faster" being mentioned. That sounds about right for a next gen card.

Anyway, I really think they must be having yield issues. The R290 is going to be an all new architecture. But the R280 is just a rebranded 7970 with a few tweaks. If the Hawaii cores are so much better, they would use lower binned ones in the lower end cards, which is what they've always done. If they're not doing that, it must mean they don't have enough. So I'm betting that these cards will be near non-existent at launch anyway. I'd say it's x-mas before the masses get to see any.

R9 290 is the second tier card, R9 290X is the top dog, so not accurate.

Oh, well, I still need to learn the new naming scheme.

At first glance that seems like a dumb naming scheme. 290 and 290X sounds like they should be the same card. Maybe the X would be unlocked or come with extra features or something.

290X has more shaders.

I won't gpu mine till the 290 non x is out, unless I can afford the 290x (if it's worth it). I'm looking forward to the nda lift tomorrow, they might be more efficient than 7950s.
Cryptsy autosell is down.

Have to factor in the alt-coin crash due to the BTC price spike.

Anyone know how much hash R9 290X mines? Assuming it is much better than 7970 , i may get one. Price isnt to very high.
post #2688 of 22337
With the shader count and the right settings id have to say between 900 and 1000 kh/s.

290x = hypothetical 9970
290= hypothetical 9950
