Hello,

 

i am a nvidia buyers but not a fan, i am also very enthousiast with the news R9 Cards  but i am waiting for you'r partners to resolve the heat and noise issue. In The way to get informed about a release date, i have seen that a lots of people is waiting like me for buying or waiting a card. Since the 1080p is the most common resolution played (in my opignon) numerous people will buy the gtx 770 or 780 or 280x here is my point : the sooner you'r partner will release their card the better the success of the R9 will be.

 

i would be (like millions) very pleased to get any information about the release date of your partner.

 

Thanks a lot for your work, congratulation for the console market and the several win against intel. Hope you'll still manage to compete with them for years.

Right now they are not letting there partners release non reference boards until the 780TI hits. (rumor)

I can tell you this though, The artic cooler excellero extreme will cool the cards *nicely* and let you hit a constant 1.1ghz overclock. 

When the 7970's were launched they were launched by partners with non reference coolers. To bad they didn't that with the R290/R290X series.

Thank you for the answer

 

i knew about the AX 3 , but it seems there is Coil Whine with the cards equiped, maybe the stock cooler was too loud to hear it.

 

i'm still waiting for information about partner's card release. I have send mail to sapphire, but no answer yet. I thought AMD had to annonce something after 780ti came out, please AMD tell us everythings, go on well known forum a big community waiting for them.

Just wait for Christmas. You don't get the ePeen factor of being an early adopter, but you do get more mature drivers, custom cooled boards, and lower prices.
