AMD R9 290X / 290 Pre-Order Discussion Thread - Page 31  

post #301 of 1004
Rofl, there's no way I'm going to convince you that my argument is the more probable outcome for this coming GPU line-up. Hey, if a dual-gpu solution ends up coming out despite...

a) no explicit mention of it thus far, and
b) explicit mention of every other product in the line-up thus far

feel free to say "i told you so" smile.gif

Oh, and the use of "more of" is going to be typical of anyone being interviewed on future product plans; he can't say "none of" because he's part of the sales team, and saying "none of" is going to shut out part of the marketshare (specifically the marketshare which cares about dual-gpu offerings). <- this is coming from a post-grad Psychology + post-grad MBA(Marketing) student.

All the best,

(+rep'd for the good discussion)

This is no longer an impulse buy. Wheels are turning. I'm getting impatient, and my trigger finger is itchy for a pair of Matrix 280x's.

Need that TrueAudio part and the ROPs, though. I'm kind of an immersive-sound-type person; I still have a half-dozen Aureal Vortex 1 and 2 cards around here somewhere.

Must... hold on... one... more... week...

fleet: never change your avatar. That little dude's just gotta keep on truckin'.

"You can do eeeeiiiittttt!" Keep telling yourself 290X isn't a rebrand. Wait for the goodies. wink.gif

Has there been any explicit mention of a R9 280 or R9 270 from AMD even though there has been rumors of such products? Was the entire lineup actually revealed or were only the products that were to be released in the near future discussed? The fact that you reverted to an argument for authority by listing your credentials in the matter, I am going to assume that this argument has reached its inevitable end. Let us wait and see what the future brings.

NCIX has a surprise special on some Nvidia cards, AMD is really testing my faith here with the delays.

Well now we're seeing the $719 price again and this time at Amazon. Hard to know if it's only some sites capitalizing on getting what they can for it or the actual retail price for the US.

I was originally buying one at this price anyway but was excited at some of the suggested pricing I was seeing on other sites. Could be some of the other lower prices did not include the BF4 bundle and some are. We'll have to wait and see.

Hoping 290X reference aren't voltage locked in case I need a bit more juice.
