AMD Radeon R9 290X Battlefield 4 Edition Video Cards Available To Pre-Order

AMD hasn’t said a word to us about the Radeon R9 290X Battlefield 4 Edition graphics card this week, but they did go up for pre-order last night at midnight. Several online retailers are beginning to take pre-orders for AMD’s Radeon R9 290X Battlefield 4 Edition bundle, which is essentially an AMD Radeon R9 290X graphics card that comes with a Battlefield 4 Premium copy.


Newegg currently lists the ASUS X9290X-DC2T-4GD5, MSI R9 290X 4GD5 and the Sapphire 100361SR as the three models that are coming soon.

No prices are on the site though and you can just be auto-notified when it becomes available. Swedish retailer listed the ASUS Radeon R9-290X 4GB BF4 bundle for 7,299 SEK (including all applicable taxes and shipping), which roughly converts to US $1,145.That site claims that the card will be released on October 11th, 2013. This price seems to be a bit high as the AMD Radeon R9 290X is rumored to be around $600 and the BF4 Digital Deluxe copy is only $69.99 (Not the same thing, but gives you a general price point since you can’t buy BF4 premium yet).

Webhallen shows the card usesĀ  the 28 nm “Hawaii” GPU and that the Radeon R9 290X features 2,816 GCN stream processors, 176 TMUs, 64 ROPs, and a 512-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface, holding 4 GB of memory. The clock speeds are shown at 800MHz core (1000MHz Turbo) and 1250MHz (5GHz) on the 4GB of GDDR5 memory. It also lists support for DirectX 11.2, OpenGL 4.3, Mantle and AMD TrueAudio.

      You’re wrong the R9 290X is not a refresh it’s the brand new Hawaii chip with the new architecture this is a completely new SINGLE gpu board. The 7990 is a dual GPU Tahiti based board. They don’t even operate the same way. Moreover if you were looking to upgrade just crossfire with an R9 280X which is a 7970 refresh. Wherever you got your facts, please go back and tell them they are desperately wrong.

    I’m going to build new rig, at the moment i not to bad pc, with i5 3570k, 8gb 2133mhz corsair pro, gtx 670 non reference card. So build new rig i need very good graphic cards, and to be honest if this r9 290x will be to expensive i better go for a 3 gtx780 or 2 gtx titans… So its just about the price guys, titan its king of the kings, its not just a name, its brand of monster rigs… To buy amd card it has to be super good and super cheap, other way for few euros or few fps i wont trade nvidia…. So My target at this moment 3 gtx 780 or 2 gtx titans…. But if r9 290x will be priced good i may order 2 or 3 thous gpus… Just waiting for official prices and will buy one or other stuff….

      um…a superclocked GTX 780 is about as fast as a Titan and sometimes even faster. It’s also a lot cheaper. Counting out the R9 290X before any real benchmarks also doesn’t seem like a good idea. Mantle could also make a lot of a difference. Your view is way to simplistic.

    Whats taking newegg so long to release those cards for pre order? are they trying to get the pricing down so they arent over pricing or are they trying to stay competitive? Either way ive been waiting sense this card was rumored to build a new pc. its been about 6 years now from my last build. So they need to get the ball rolling or my money goes to nvidia. ;(

      Are you an idiot? Nobody is allowed to until AMD gives the go signal.

      Surprisingly, that was one of the first versions to go up. Dunno why this article omitted it.
