AMD unveiled its new Radeon R9 290X last week in Hawaii, describing the R9 and R7 series as 'the new GPUs for a new era in graphics.' Unfortunately, AMD didn't actually when we could expect this new era in graphics to commence. Luckily, we have the rumor mill to keep us warm while we wait for an official announcement from AMD.
Earlier this week, word got out that the the press NDA on the R9 290X is scheduled to expire on October 15, just under two weeks from now. Now, VideoCardz reports that the NDA on 280X will be lifted on October 8th. VC says that this is when reviewers are allowed to publish their reviews and that cards with aftermarket cooling solutions will be available within a few days of this date. No word as of yet on the embargo date on the 270X.
