It will be based on a 28nm process and would be available to consumers in mid-October 2013.

Update – The fully enabled Hawaii die features 4 CUs (Compute Units), each CU has 11 SMIDs which amount to 44 SMIDS results in 2816 stream processor count, 176 Texture mapping Units, 44 Raster Operators.

Now we officially know more than that, the Radeon R9-290X features a massive die size and a 4 GB memory running across a 512-bit interface. The Radeon R9-290X is powered by 8-Pin plus 6-Pin connector configurations which denotes a 300W TDP (actual TDP is 270W) design. The VRM features 5+1+1 phase design (5 Phase Core and 1 Phase memory). The card has two DVI, HDMI and a display port to provide display output.
