The AMD Radeon R9 290X Hawaii GPU is just a few hours away from launch (paper) and we have now got the latest pictures of the graphic card which show the final design by AMD. The AMD Radeon R9 290X was pictured band from the looks of it shares a similar cooler design to its smaller sibling, the Curacao Pro based R7 270 graphics card.

 

The fully enabled Hawaii die features 4 CUs (Compute Units), each CU has 11 SMIDs which amount to 44 SMIDS results in 2816 stream processor count, 176 Texture mapping Units, 44 Raster Operators.

Now we officially know more than that, the Radeon R9-290X features a massive die size and a 4 GB memory running across a 512-bit interface. The Radeon R9-290X is powered by 8-Pin plus 6-Pin connector configurations which denotes a 300W TDP (actual TDP is 270W) design. The VRM features 5+1+1 phase design (5 Phase Core and 1 Phase memory). The card has two DVI, HDMI and a display port to provide display output.

:lol: Dude, I'm working hard at pissing people off (indirectly) on the Xbox thread.... though yeah, I kinda am awake late at home as well :P

 

Damn livestream is stuck in a loop. Start fast AMD, I missed lunch for this :rant:

 

From a liveblog:

 

AMD's Chris Hook has taken the stage to inform us that there is a problem with the live stream via YouTube. Bear with us while we get this fixed. Could be waiting another half-hour or 45 minutes.
