    News of note

    Unlike the midrange 270x and 280x, AMD boasts completely new silicon in their 290x GPU. In my interview earlier this month with AMD’s Matt Skynner, I was told that “this GPU is in 28nm. Some have speculated that it was 20nm and it’s not for a specific reason: At 28nm for an enthusiast GPU, we can achieve higher clock speeds and higher absolute performance.” This wasn’t just PR blowing hot air: In most cases AMD’s new silicon outperforms its closest competitor, Nvidia’s GTX 780.

    In some cases it even outperforms the big daddy of single-core GPUs, Nvidia’s Titan.
