If you’re in Montreal tomorrow you can get a sneak peak at the upcoming AMD Radeon HD R9 290X video card running on a 4K monitor! AMD will be hosting a public event at the Hilton Bonaventure hotel in the Jacques-Cartier meeting room in downtown Montreal, Canada. There is an open door policy in the afternoon for gamers between 3pm to 8pm that would like to get a true hands-on gaming experience with the new 'Hawaii' powered GPU. AMD informed us that they will have systems running both the AMD Radeon R9 290X and the NVIDIA Geforce GTX 780, so you can do some comparisons when you are there. AMD will be running “Bioshock Infinite” at 4K resolutions during the event.
