I call drivers.

But this is sad regardless of the reason... I'm already losing my hype and I hate when this happens. It will turn out that I'll just buy a GPU, and not, you know... BUY A GPU!11!1one!!

Should go into the rumors section.

It is past midnight on the west coast, but there is no sign of the AMD R9 290x reviews that were rumored to hit the net today. According to new rumors it is likely we won’t see the AMD R9 290x for another few weeks, as the launch date has been moved to October 24th.


Here's some info I found at videocardz:

UPDATE

After this update I will no longer post anything about the launch date of R9 290X (I’m tired of receiving conflicting information).

Fresh news have just arrived. The launch is probably set for October 18th. We couldn’t confirm the launch date since distributors, manufacturers and reviewers have all slightly different information. So it’s either this date or a date closer to BF4 launch. Take it as you will.

Tweets from AMD Radeon and Roy Taylor accounts seem to confirm it:







ORIGINAL STORY

Guys from Expreview and ZOL decided to share some photos of their newest graphics card — HIS R9 290X.

Radeon R9 290X is pretty much the only R9 series card to feature new GPU in the whole stack. Powered by Hawaii processor with 2816 Stream Processors, 176 TMUs and 64 ROPs the R9 290X will compete with GeForce GTX TITAN, whereas it’s slower brother R9 290 will fight against GTX 780.

The new launch date

My yesterday’s post about the launch date caused a huge misunderstanding on multiple forums. So let me rephrase what I wanted to say and hopefully this will clear things a bit. The R9 290X will not launch tomorrow, instead it will launch around October 24th, while R9 290 should arrive on October 31st (both dates are just rumors, but a very good ones).

I was also told that October 15th, which was an NDA date in the slides leaked by Donanim Haber (and no, we didn’t made that up), was just a milestone, which was later updated by AMD during the GPU 14 event. Apparently they didn’t update it on time and it somehow made its way to the web. So technically it was postponed, but AMD will just say it was never meant to be launched on this date. Instead they will just claim it’s right on track and the schedule has not changed (of course it didn’t, but we never learned the official launch date).

Anyway here are the photos.

Very confusing so now we're set for the 18th? or is the 24th? Or is it the 30th/31st? rolleyes.gif

Dont so much care about the launch date as the NDA lift. I wanna see two things - performance numbers, and price drops from nvidia.

amd should have been more clear about US customers not able to pre-order the 290x oct 3rd as well... really bad communication on their end of late. :/ i think i am going to go SLI when prices drop, Nvidia just makes me feel warm inside. thumb.gif

This wait is killing me. Classified just sitting here waiting to be opened unless, of course, 290x blows it out of the water.

But the launch date was never set/announced, right? Then how can it be delayed.
