So far seen only Gamers Nexus review.

a) The PCB and VRM thermals looks to me great.

b) GPU + HBM seems to me significantly higher as I expected.
Way back on R 290X by Sapphire they used Vapor chamber which had bumps on it.

The card obviously throttles on thermals - which is of course a problem.

Modding of the cooler might (only MIGHT) allow for much better thermals and thus better results as well...

c) Frametimes - exceptional for pre-release version of the driver.

d) Claims that card is similar to Nvidias in performance.
Not really, as there seem to be present a different reason for the FPS limitation (CPU, RAM or software related).
