This just screams to me that they didn't (have time/money) to properly bin the chips (or they didn't want too many salvage chips) and they just slapped on a one-size-fits-all (over)voltage and called it a day.

As I mentioned in another post, Intel had the exact same issue with mobile Haswell CPUs.

The p/w is going to go down the drain though, but it can't be worse than AMD's previous cards. And if they get within spitting distance of a Fury then i doubt anyone will complain.

Except it'll likely take ~250 watts to get it there. People will complain. They always find something to complain about. It's in our nature.

Ok, we are basing pricing on specials and sales, not msrp or actual pricing. I mean, everyone you posted included using a mail in rebate, but that's cool. Oh and those were all 290's, not 290x's. Hit me back when you find actual normalizing pricing for $199.00 without any discounts.

With that mindset you should be excited that with the types of deals and rebates you showed these cards are going to be around $150! Sign me up. wink.gif

Asynchronous shaders and SFR should solve that

It roughly matches them on 1080/1440, it is cheaper, consumes less has untapped performance as every new design and will receive driver support for longer periods . You must be crazy to get a 390 now. Just look what 7870 did to GTX580 18 months down the road. Same thing will happen with Hawaii / Granada and Polaris

it matches 390x 1080p< but above 1440 the bandwidth/ROPs seem to be a bottleneck, and also depending on the game because some at 1080 seem to use more SPs than Clock speed

Quite easy... as easy as programming Asynchronous compute + graphics. At least as per Dan Baker it is quite easy.
