    I'd say this is a lot of hype for something that needs to compete with the Titan Z, but a $3000 video card doesn't have a whole lot of competition if you know what I mean.... Reply

    the card was leaked yesterday. its water cooled, dual chipped, 8gb ram... its said to be $1500.. but there is no confirmation on that Reply

    That sounds pretty likely.

    I like AMD, but the level of sponsored articles here is getting a bit much.

    Really? A few red color codes in a css file is too much for you? You can always use stylish to change it back. Reply

    AMD will go for a 4 grand Video card, hehehe... Reply

    The real competition will be 295X2 vs 790Ti at the $1,000-1,500 window.

    At least for gaming, that is. Reply

    Yeah, I'm disappointed that AMD paired back the DP FP performance on consumer Hawaiis. Now nVidia actually has a justification for the high prices on the Titan(Z), whereas with Tahiti, it offers all the same features, with moderately lower performance, but significantly lower price. Reply

    I hope you're joking. This is a gaming card first and foremost. They didn't cut back the FP64 performance just for laughs - they sacrificed some FP64 performance to improve gaming performance - Nvidia does the same thing on their gaming cards! The Titan Z is a semi-pro card. If you want FP64, compare the Z to the latest FirePro cards. Reply

    295X!!!!
    Should equal Titan Z for a fraction of the price.... powerbill excluded.

    But what’s in the briefcase? That will be a subject for another day…

    Aw COME ON!!! We're already on the edge of our seats with this thing! :-)

    I would have made the code 1-2-3-4-5.

    (I suppose with 6 tumblers, it would have to be 0-1-2-3-4-5)

    If anybody purchased a briefcase or a combination luggage, he would know that by default; the numbers are "000 - 000" unless you change them. Duh

    It probably never crossed "AMD`s" mind to change it to 290-290. Anyway who cares what the numbers are, well apart from the Benches right?

    Agreed. Though a bit wider than most business briefcases. I wonder if you mod it into a unique computer case? Reply
  • rcarroll05 - Wednesday, April 02, 2014 - link

    I would have the code would have been 263 for both sides. On your phone that would translate to AMD Reply
  • piroroadkill - Wednesday, April 02, 2014 - link

    Well, just from the image on the box, it's clear the leaked pictures were real.

    Funny how Nvidia casually pulls out the Titan Z on stage while AMD goes through this dumb month long "hype" campaign. Reply
  • nathanddrews - Wednesday, April 02, 2014 - link

    Did you expect anything different? NVIDIA could have launched dual GK110 over the holiday season, but they are nothing if not deliberate. Why show all your cards at once when the competition has nothing to compete? If the roles were reversed, NVIDIA would be the one with the hype campaign.

    I'm hoping that AMD follows the tradition of the 290X launch and Vesuvius ends up priced closer to $1,000 than $1,500. Miners notwithstanding. It is probably false hope.

    nVidia's already dead meat in the gaming market. AMD's sweep of the game consoles has seen to that. Reply

    Jesus did they have an intern do that? Cheap vinyl sticker with poorly cut out edges. The graphic doesn't even line up between the ribs on that shoddy oriental trading company case.

    If you cant nail the presentation on a $10 briefcase promo how can anyone expect a top class $800+ card to be properly executed!

    The briefcase has a fold out heat sink (aka radiator) for the new dual card...
    The dual card will ship in another box.

    They should have sent the briefcase to some blogs with out an nda and given them the code when the nda was lifted.

    That would have provided a massive amount of hype. Or they could have put an electronic lock and sent cracking software that runs on AMD gpus and the NDA would get lifted when the first non nda blogger cracked the code and published.

    Isn't it amazing how Anandtech finds time to report on a metal box from a company that pays , yet a few hours after BUILD and a few more hours after Amazon's launch event you had no time to report on any of that. Something is very very wrong here. Reply

    OH HOW I LOVE THAT THEY PUT THE WORD RADEON ON THE CASE.... I miss the old radeon name. I think that if they bring the name back ill buy the cards, just because radeon was a household name for me as a kid. Reply

    What? All AMD GPUs are AMD Radeon.

    Do you mean you miss ATi?

    What I'd like to know is when the mobile Kaveri chips come out. That's a lot more exciting than a dual chip GPU that'll be used by a tiny fraction of the market. Reply
  • moozoo - Wednesday, April 02, 2014 - link

    My Guess. It is a workstation version of Kaveri that has a 1:2 DP ratio. Reply

    Nothing like spending $1500 on a GPU that has 10 cent crappy drivers. AMD would be great if they knew how to make drivers that worked half as good as Nvidia. Ill stick to Nvidia at least I know my SxxT will work right. Reply
