We're still missing a couple of pieces when it comes to having a look at the new R series from top to bottom. Today, though, one more of those pieces gets filled with the release of the new single GPU high-end option from AMD, the R9 290X. The other main piece we're missing is the R9 290, which is due to be released roughly a week after the R9 290X, and as the name might suggest, falls just below this model.
Along with these higher-end models, there's also a few lower-end ones we've got to look at including the lower-end R7 250 which we've also got on hand and carries with it a price tag of under $100. You can understand we're not exactly the most excited to test that model and it's probably the main reason we've focused on the other models we've currently got on hand. Saying that, we will of course be getting around to it soon.
Today, though, is all about the newest high-end GPU from AMD. Of course being a reference card, we don't have a package on our hands today, so we'll be moving from here into the card itself. Because it's also our first R9 290X, we'll be covering some of the main features that the new model brings to the table.
This is ultimately the main AMD video card everyone has been waiting for since we first heard about the new models coming, so let's not delay any longer, and see just what is new with the latest generation AMD high-end single GPU offering.
