We are not that far away from a product release from AMD's launch of the AMD's Hawaii GPU, some site leaked pictures and benchmarks. If the photos published by DG's Nerdy Story web-site are to be believedthen you can expect a red-black cooling cover system that houses a high-speed blower, two CrossFire multi-GPU connectors as well as several digital monitor connections. The new AMD Radeon graphics card – which is believed to be called AMD Radeon R9 290X in accordance with alleged new AMD nomenclature – features AMD code-named Hawaii graphics processing unit as well as 14 GDDR5 memory chips. The new graphics card features similar multi-phase GPU power supply circuitry.

A highly-ranking representative from graphics products group of Advanced Micro Devices recently confirmed that the new-generation graphics products from the company are coming next quarter. The executive also said that the new graphics boards will not target ultra-high-end market segment and will therefore not cost $999, like some existing offerings on the market. It is logical to expect the new flagship AMD Radeon graphics card to cost up to $649.
It is noteworthy that despite of the fact that the next-generation products from AMD are several weeks away from formal announcements, nothing particular is known about them. Matt Skynner, corporate vice president and general manager of AMD’s graphics business unit, recently revealed that the chip would be made using 28nm process technology and will be 30% smaller than Nvidia Corp.’s GK110, which points to around 385mm2 die size and around 5 billion of transistors. While he did not reveal actual performance numbers he implied that efficiency of the new Radeon graphics processing unit will be higher than that of Nvidia Kepler-based GK110.
