According to AMD's slides, the 280 cards won't get TrueAudio or whatever they are calling it, just the 290X, the 290, and the 270X.

Nice Card! 

 

Is it me or did yesterday seem like a complete waste of time?  The third of October is only a week away for more details; *** only a week and more details.  Why waste everybody's time, then only a week later give more details.  :kookoo:

 

/end rant@!

the XFX Pitcairn cooler performs on par with Powercolor PCS+ , likely due to the smaller actual heatsink (the heatsink doesn't even cover the PCB). Not saying it's great, but it's quieter than the jet engine that is the XFX 7950 likely due to a slower fancurve.

Also there was supposedly a BIOS update to get a more aggressive fan curve

^ runs hotter but is quieter, so it's a fan curve thing... 34dB at 10cm

^ ASUS had bad die contact I believe

It's no sapphire though. (26°C hotter when OCed)
http://www.overclockersclub.com/reviews/xfx_hd_7870_7850_dd/14.htm

My point was it was a extremely poor design for Tahiti, while it was simply a poor choice of fin area for Pitcairn.

As long as the price/performance is there, I don't mind rebrands. Too bad the supposed 7970 rebrand lacks crossfire fingers - that probably rends it impossible to crossfire with my 7970

HD7000 series is all GCN except OEM ones like HD 7670 or HD 7570 that usually see in HP/Dell PCs. There's also the HD 7000 series G (Trinity) integrated graphics which are VLIW4 and not GCN.

HD7730 / HD 7750/7770= Cape Verde
HD7790 = Bonaire
HD7850 / HD 7870 = Pitcairn
HD7870XT/HD7950/Hd7970 = Tahiti

Basically everything you can buy in a store and put into a desktop motherboard PCI-e slot is GCN.

I wonder why the cooler covers the crossfire bridge area if the 280x is just a rebrand of the 7970. The 290x might not have one, but that is a whole new chip. Perhaps there is another chip on the PCB that makes crossfire over PCI-e backwards compatible.

I was talking generally about others there. Not you. You reminded me of them.

Who cares about the "title" rebrand anyway? We care about performance/price. What are we buying, dresses?

Interesting ,but I need a review and clear picture of the heatsink and PCB/VRM before I would consider buying the R9-290X version of it; hopefully Techpowerup or Vortex does a review since they always pop the heatsink off.

Would be nice if they used different fans this time around as the DD 7800 ones were so so and the DD 7900 ones are some of the loudest GPU fans I've ever heard on a non reference design.

We have a Sapphire rep on this site now though, so I'll probably go with them or HIS unless Asus comes out with a DC2 cooler that isn't triple slot and isn't voltage locked for the R9-290X.

that naming scheme is still horrible. It makes no sense and is not easy for anyone to figure out let alone ma and pa trying to buy junior a Christmas present. guess we'll just have to wait on price and benches...
