Video card releases have been extremely busy for the last little bit thanks to AMD. When they release a new series of video cards, they tend to do it in a big way releasing a top to bottom line up of cards for us to look at in one big hit. With the stagnated releases over the last month and then a number of options from partners, we've just been swimming in a pile of video cards.
While it might slow down for the holiday season when it comes to new models, we're going to still see a busy couple of months as partners do more and more to the new models that have been released. After this, though, we've got one more reference card to look at which comes from the folks over at NVIDIA. The upcoming NVIDIA GTX 780 Ti is designed to take on the new AMD offerings and it will be interesting to see just what the model brings to the table.
Today, though, is about what should pretty much be the last piece of the puzzle when it comes to the new R series of video cards from AMD that have done an excellent job of impressing us since their introduction just a month ago.
The R9 290 as the name suggests is the model below the top-end R9 290X that we looked at just a week ago. As always, since we're dealing with a reference card, we'll be simply moving on from our introduction into the card itself. One of the main things we want to see is the difference between this model and its bigger brother, the R9 290X. So let's not delay any longer and just get stuck into it.
