Take this with however many grains of salt as needed
I have recently had a very interesting conversation with one of the add-in-board partners of AMD. They told me that Radeon R9 290X will soon be replaced with a new graphics card. Graphics card that would take the performance crown back from GTX 780 TI. If you remember Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition, then you probably know where this is heading. There are basically two options, yet another Hawaii variant, or brand new GPU. Itís worth noting that there are some traces of a new GPU called Iceland. Could it be the new high performance heart of new flagship?
