AMD Hawaii Radeon R9 290X, a Card with 64 ROPs

You've got to love company slides. They tend to leak to the Internet days, sometimes even weeks, before they're supposed to. And AMD's Radeon R9 290X graphics card will only debut on October 15.

The folks at WCCFTech were able to procure the presentation slide that shows how many ROPs (raster operations units) the video board has. Or rather, how many it has compared to the Radeon HD 7970. And since the HD 7970 has 32, that means the R9 290X boasts 64. The other important detail is the 1.4 times greater number of stream processors, which means 2,816 (Tahiti has 2,048).

The rest of the specs are the ones that reports have uncovered before: 4 GB GDDR5 memory at 5 GHz, 512-bit interface, and 1 GHz GPU clock. It's still possible that AMD won't release the video card on October 15, but reviews should surface around mid-October anyway.
