Here are some new slides about the architecture of the Hawaii GPU (Volcanic Islands) that powers the Radeon R9 290X and R9 290. The Hawaii GPU is based on the new GCN 2.0 architecture with 2816 shader processors distribued over 44 compute units. The GPU has 176 texture units, 64 ROP units, 8 memory controllers (MC) connected to 4GB of GDDR5 memory with a 512-bit bus width.

And if this last slide is not a fake, the R9 290X will empty your bank account…

Well here is the same image but without prices.
The prices seems to be too too big so probably fake.
450/475 $ R9 290
600/700$ R9 290X
lol, yeah. Bad news for AMD is always fake. http://www.hardware-360.com/amazon-confirms-amd-r9-290x-700-msrp/
