    Default [Tomshardware.de] Gigabyte to stop mass production of Windforce R9-290x immediately

    We have gigabytes therefore questioned again today and the following, final responses received, so we now also allowed to publish:

    "There is a problem on fan sink. The production sample is different from the sample provided by our vendor. The sink for early media samples are not optimized to meet the design requirement. We will improve it immediately and we stop the mass production today ..."

    That means in plain language that the sent to the press early patterns do not match with what the contract manufacturer originally submitted for the radiator to the graphics card manufacturer Gigabyte for review. This is something we are already familiar with power supplies and their shrunken features, but now it has apparently caught even gigabytes in the coolers.
