Well I have that 290x Lightning at newegg.ca link saved and I'm checking every little bit hoping to score one.

Little tired of Nvidia and their green light ways...

When all else fails, there is plasti-dip :P!

Elpida on R9-290X Matrix is enough to push me out of card example If I plan to buy.
I know very good what is Elpida, leave you out of competition even if you want to compare card with friends just for fun.
Enough to disrupt you min and max fps in games if you OC 200MHz Memory instead of 100MHz.
Because Elpida people OC GTX780 Classified on 3500 in Unigine Valley... I couldn't more than 3100MHz...
I payed same as them and why they install such memory at all on cards. Now Radeons fans have reason to complain. GOOD.
ASUS probably resolve Hynix problem on LN2 with switch for defrosting memory on MATRIX GTX780Ti, but MATRIX R9-290X is not fair really for them.
Hynix was good on Matrix HD7970 and several cards before.
ASUS made nice card this time, with black heatsink but they should make and mirror finish on that cooler not as on cheapest CPU Coolers.

Damn, I was really hoping it would be a triple slot. Off to hunt for 280X Matrix cards then.

Triple cooler cards are ugly. Better because ASUS cross on dual cooler cards.
R9-290X Matrix have problem with that Elpida, but Matrix ROG GTX780Ti is maybe candidate for new world record.
It's not memory mean nothing, and OC only graphic chip, memory can decide about world record. You will see that.
I have good memory on KINGPIN EDITION and Memory with new higher latency for better OC only give higher clock, (higher clock for nothing) result stay same, but when I OC memory with fabric LN2 BIOS on 200-250MHz and tight latency than result is obvious bigger, almost 100 points more in Unigine Heaven 4.0. From 1750-1830/1840MHz it's not small difference on stock GPU Clock. Hynix 90% of memory could same, but with bug on LN2. Example stock BIOS 200MHz OC Memory is 100 points, unofficial BIOS design to give higher memory clock is 15 points on 200MHz...
Because of that I think if ASUS resolve cold bug on card that is advantage immediately over guys who can't OC Samsung more than 100MHz...Because Hynix scaling after OC is good.
Same as Samsung in normal conditions without playing with latency.
For me would be ideal K|NGP|N BIOS with enabled Boost only where I can't touch power target limit. With original latency.
And I'm sure more people need such BIOS.

That is not problem, you remove shroud and give cooler to some professionals who paint cars to cover with heat resistant matt black paint, only cover part with mirror finish and you will had black fins. But that must do professional guy with proper paint and will look exactly same as fabric...
And ACX can became different color... Look and of video, you can easy make K|NGP|N Black Edition or Red Edition, or White....smile.gif
