Here's to hoping that this fixes the "crash every time you play a video, but not when the video is inside of a VM" and the "HOLY SHIT I DONT KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH OPENCL" problems that my 290x has been giving me.

I saw a review on the internets recently about 2 R9 295s in Crossfire and the rather weak scaling/improvement that it yielded. If only this had come out in time for that.

Since the crossfire fixes seem game-specific and I'm not using OpenGL I think that I'll hold off on installing this one for a bit.

Im using them, they are quite good.

I was stuck on 13.12 due to broken power limit, and sticky boot clocks with 14.x.

All fixed on these.

What is your GPU setup?

single reference 290 pro with a gelid icy vision strapped on.

These are RC because they have been submitted for WHQL. People have been bitching, so AMD decided to put them up while certification is pending.

If you arent using them on an HTPC, no reason to wait really.
