The official specifications and pictures of the upcoming Radeon R9 295X2 have been unveiled by the guys over at VideoCardz. These photos and slides give us all the information we have been wanting to know about AMD’s dual-GPU card.
Well NVIDIA launched their dual-GPU GeForce GTX Titan Z just the other day and now it is AMD’s turn. They have been hinting at launching a dual-GPU product with their #2betterthan1 viral campaign. Sources are now saying that the R9 295X2 codenamed Vesuvius will be launching April 8th.
NVIDIA started off the GPU Technology conference today by announcing the GeForce GTX TITAN Z. This card packs two GK110 GPU’s on to a single card giving it a total of 5760 CUDA cores and 12GB of on board memory. NVIDIA is currently saying this card is capable of 8 TeraFLOPS and is designed for 5K gaming!
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.
For those waiting for a dual Hawaii-based graphics card you might not have to wait that much longer. ASUS is planning to launch their custom built ARES III Hawaii-based card at Computex 2014. The ARES brand is ASUS’s custom built dual-chip graphics lineup based on AMD GPUs.
To enhance the gaming experience and to take the gaming to the ultimate next level, ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) has rolled in the Mars 760. This graphics card features two GeForce GTX 760 graphics-processing units (GPUs) which are responsible for the powerful and improved performance during gaming. With 39% faster performance in gaming, this new graphics card by ASUS has taken over the GeForce GTX Titan which comes as a bit of a surprise.
The R9 290X x2 is very soon going to reveal itself as we have it from some reliable sources. This Dual Hawaii-XT GPU is another roll out from AMD and has been codenamed as ‘Vesuvius’ which comes as no surprise by now because we are all used to the AMD’s naming strategy.
If you are an CrossFireX (AMD’s multi-GPU solution) user then you are well aware of the long standing issue of ‘runt’ frames produced when multiple AMD GPUs are used in CrossfireX mode. Even though the performance looked choppy if you were using a program like FRAPS it would appear that the card was churning out great performance. AMD will finally deliver a long-awaited driver update to fix the ‘runt’ frames issue.
