AMD has launched the AMD Radeon R9 290X graphics card, featuring AMD's Graphics Core Next (GCN) architecture and Mantle, a latest graphics technology developed by AMD.

With Mantle, game developers can harness the GCN-powered architecture found in both PCs and consoles, empowering them to speak the native language of the GPU core and benefit from hardware optimization that unlocks performance and image quality, claimed AMD.

The graphics card is also equipped with new AMD TrueAudio technology, which is able to enhance the card's audio output, and supports AMD Eyefinity technology, for image output in multiple displays.

The AMD Radeon R9 290X graphics cards are available on October 24, 2013 at a starting price of US$549.
