As we get closer and closer to the launch of the AMD Radeon R9 295X2 we are expecting more and more leaks. The leak today comes in the form of the first benchmarks released for AMD’s new dual-GPU card.
Well it did not take long for someone to open their briefcase from AMD and take a few shots of the Radeon R9 295X2. The leaked photos come from our friends over at Chiphell and from the looks of things the Radeon R9 295X2 looks rather boring if you ask me.
It seems that we have been talking about AMD’s upcoming Radeon R9 295X2 a lot lately. It is scheduled to be released a week from today! Well we have some new information on the card itself that was previously unreleased and we also confirm some of the other leaked information with AMD.
Sapphire originally released their R9 280X Vapor-X back when the R9 280X’s were launched. The card was factory overclocked and featured Sapphire’s Dual-X cooler. Well Sapphire is releasing a new version of the card that makes use of Sapphire’s own exclusive Vapor-X cooling with its new Tri-X triple fan design. This should keep the Tahiti GPU nice a cool. On top of that this card is again factory overclocked, features Black Diamond chokes and a full Solid Cap design, and has dual BIOS support. Is this the R9 280X that you are looking for? Read on as we take a look…
The guys over at BueweenPC have some details on AMD’s upcoming Dual GPU Hawaii graphics card. According to their story AMD was showing a reference model of the card behind closed doors at CeBIT. Only a few people really got a chance to see it.
Sapphire is working a new upcoming Radeon R9 290X in their Vapor-X series. What is interesting about this card is that Sapphire will be doubling the memory over AMD’s reference design, giving you a total of 8GB of VRAM! This will make the Sapphire Radeon R9 290X Vapor-X the first consumer-based graphics card with 8GB of VRAM.
PowerColor has been a leading name in the list of AMD manufacturers and they just recently previewed their Radeon R9 290X PCS+ which is going to be launched soon. This card includes triple fan cooling solution which will protect from heat and cool the AMD’s flagship Hawaii chip. We should be expecting the non reference models of the Radeon R9 290X by next week and it is most likely that they will generate better cooling and overclocking performance.
The GV-R927XOC-4GD is available in a standard edition and there is another version which features the Battlefield 4 Origin key. This one comes with a GDDR5 memory of 4 GB and has been laid across a 256-bit wide memory interface. The memory has been clocked at a speed of 5.60 GHz and this generates a bandwidth of 179 GB/s.
