Smile AMD/Sapphire R9 290 1Unboxing and Overview 2Performance Review

So I picked up the Sapphire R9 290 after waiting for these new Hawaii GPU's for months. I was super surprised to find that most 290's in the Toronto area were sold out. Knowing the 290's where almost identical to the 290X in specs but priced more aggressively, I guess was a good compromise. So here is a Unboxing and Overview of my Sapphire Radeon R9 290.

Code Name: Hawaii
Base Clock: 800Mhz
Boost Clock 947Mhz
Stream Processors: 2560
ROPs: 64
Texture Units: 160
Memory: 4GB GDDR5
Memory SpeedL 5Ghz
Memory Bus: 512 bits
True Audio: Yes
Mantle: Yes
DirectX 11.2: Yes

Let me know what benchmarks you guys would like to see in my up coming full review?
