AMD Radeon R7 260X, R9 270X, and R9 280X Tested
Great article, good to hear that power draw is a little lower on the 280x.
No BF4 beta benchmarks ?
It's hard enough to get consistent data from BF for benchmarking, much less the beta. :) That said, we'll be looking at BF4 for future testing since obviously the engine is gorgeous and the game is very popular.

Good review Marco, I like that they're trying to offer these cards for a little less money. I hope that it affects GPU prices overall.
Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.
It's too bad that there is some negative hype with the 290x being delayed. From what I can tell, none of it is true (at least as of 10/13 on AMD's twitter). I've always owned Nvidia cards but am glad that there's a healthy competition between the two.
This is great. I really think that this can change what people think of console gaming to pc gaming/ being on a pc in general. I have some friends who dont want to "convert" to PC gaming, mainly because of the high price range. Especailly for GPU's. These are not only gonna change the Gpu market (credit to realneil for that), but the console and PC market in general. Rock on PC!
Minor delays are fine as long as they ensure a quality product on release - much rather have an extra wait than to shell out the bucks and have to wait for driver updates to use it
Great article, waiting for the rest of the cards to be tested ;)
Great cards for budget pcs
with the prices back to sane levels after the mining rush jacked the prices into stratosphere, those R9 280X cards that have solid air cooling solutions from various vendors are pretty darn sweet.
