Tom's Hardware Worldwide Editor-in-Chief Chris Angelini is taking one for the team and is on location at AMD's GPU14 event in Hawaii. Last night, Chris got the chance to go hands on with a piece of AMD's new hardware. Here's what he got to see:
If you look closely at one of the pictures, you may recognize the model number from news you may have read recently: AMD Radeon R9 290X. On a side note, this quick peek took place on the U.S.S. Missouri. Check out more pictures of her below, if you're into that sort of thing.
AMD will be presenting a live webcast at 3:00 p.m. ET at LiveStream. Also stay tuned for our live commentary during that time in our live blog.

And is that 3 intake holes just like the R7-260X? What happened to using 2x mini-DP like their previous gen cards?
Guess we will find out soon I guess.
Also looks like R9-290X is the new top end single GPU so I guess the R9-295X might be the dual GPU?
I have to say I don't care for the new model naming convention though.
