Due to selective sampling, extremely limited availably and tight deadlines we are unable to source a review sample to perform our own testing although we had full access to all information and data regarding the new GPUs under AMD and Add in Board Partner embargo. We have even heard numbers for the special Battlefield 4 edition cards (via pre-order) were as low as 8000 units.

Discussions with Add in Board Partners pre-launch revealed that stocks of cards at launch time are extremely limited, to such a degree that these firms are not sampling boards to media in some regions especially since 290Xs will be reference cards initially.
