5th Gen Intel CPUs, DDR4, SSDs, GTX980, 4K display................HP went all out, this is just about as good as it gets out there right now. Add the power of HP to get discounts from manufacturers i am sure price will be good as well.

Man if they can convince nVidia to drop a few $$ off GTX 980 because of HPs buying power and include Witcher and Batman game..................deal of the year.
 
Kind of weird how they say they will put in a 380 or 980. Those are (should be) quite different cars. Horse power speaking, that is. To me that's like saying they will put in a 290 or 270x.. Nothing in between. Just seems kind of funny

Waiting for the 390X with 8GB of ram. With 3x1600P I need more power. I don't want to use more then 2 cards in cross/sli. When you go past 2 cards the stability of games & the number of supported games go way down. Unfortunately, there will probably never be a single card that can handle 7680x1600 at a good frame rate :(

I thought a previous article said the R9-380 was just a rebadged R9-290 anyway and nothing new. Only R9-390(x) will be new.
The 380X will supposedly a 290X re-engineered with the more advanced Tonga architecture with delta color compression, higher clocks, and slightly lower energy usage. It should take on the 980 easily.

Then it's not a 290X.
 


What do you mean? The GTX745 is an OEM card that has been out for a while.. Same with the GTX 760 Ti and GTX 760 192-Bit

What I meant was isn't GTX branding for higher end cards only? I am sure nVidia is just starting to overuse the 'GTX' label as x45 cards are quite low end and should be either GT or GTS.
