We have no idea how many more 290 or 290X GPUs will be produced by AMD, if not for something as simply fulfilling contractual obligations to the foundry.
A person looking at buying a GPU, today, and viewing this article, would not be given the information about the 290X, it being left out. Although a handful of other 200 series of cards were tested. Again, that is a problem because the 290X is readily available today, right now.
Then again, using the logic of age, the 750 Ti in the list looks a little out of place as well. Since the 950 is here and all.
Just wanted to point out, again, that this article makes no distinction of time. It isn't stating "Current Generation Only"
cards, or "Cards Released in The Last 12 Months"
, or even "Cards You Can Buy in The Future". It is broadly
stating "The Best Graphics Cards: Nvidia vs. AMD at Every Price Point"
. Well, right now, that is pretty much the 290X.
There are no conditions listed for the article. I suppose we will just have to agree to disagree on it though, everyone is going to look at it different.
