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
MSRP:$399

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

nice should be a heck of a card, do you plan to change the stock cooler?

I am planning on water cooling the card and putting into the build I am doing. Right now I plan to test the hell out of the card. I was wondering is there any test you guys want to see?

Does any of the cards screws have warranty sticker or sticker on them?

I'm asking bcs maybe I buy R9 290 and change cooler.

The card is plugged into my machine right now but from what I can tell from the test bench no. I will check and let you know tomorrow for sure.
