Will AMD release Reference design 280x's?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Was stoked about the news of that 7970 and 280x can be crossfired, only to find out that newegg only has aftermarket cooled versions... when I have reference designed 7970... Everyone should know about the problems of having two mismatched fan designs...

So could anyone verify to me whether or not we will see reference cooled 280x's? Thanks.

If this is true, then why all the hype for crossfiring when there's people like myself with reference blowers? Disappointed if true. Was looking forward on being able to saving some cash on one of the new budget friendly 280x's... /sob.

I dunno, Gibbo from OCUK just said there wont be it seems.

But then when you google r9 280x there are reviews of reference 270x...http://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/radeon_r7_260x_r9_270x_280x_review_benchmarks,29.html

So I dunno..it seems strange that nobody has reference cards on sale, whereas with the 290x it will be all reference at release then aftermarket 4-6 weeks later.

Edit2: When you look on coolingconfigurator it says that cards like the HIS iceq 280X uses a 7970 waterblock, and then cards like the asus 280x TOP uses a special 280X matrix waterblock.

So who knows...
