So I found this on youtube, has this 390X been released.
Anyways here is video
But how did he get to buy one. If reviewers are waiting.
Suppliers ship cards and hardware before launch to retailers usually in a large box that says not to display or resell till such and such date.
Best buy did this once before with apple MacBooks and lost sake day new macs for some time after that.
From rumours this is just a possibly tweeked 290x. Supposedly it is the fury x that will be the top dog.
That's the current rumours, that Fury is going to be it's own separate line, though we'll have to wait for the NDAs to lift to know for certain.
The Fury is a pretty heavily anticipated release. Even though there is 0% chance of me buying one I can't wait to read a reputable review of it.
I am not surprised AMD is being selective on who gets one to review. I am not sure they are actually pulling reviews….I think they are just limiting who gets them. I could be wrong though.
