About a month ago we talked about AMD working on a dual GPU graphics solution based on their “Hawaii” architecture. Proof of this was in AMD’s driver package, but this card may never make it to market. On the other side NVIDIA is said to be working on a new dual GPU solution of their own, the GeForce GTX 790.
Several manufacturers prepare for the upcoming CES 2014 and it seems as if MSI has got its hands all full with a range of products falling under the Gaming lineup that need some introducing on the much awaited event. MSI preparing to launch the Radeon R9 270X Gaming ITX and Radeon R9 280X Gaming with 6 GB 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.
A variant of the Radeon R9 270X Dual-X graphics card has recently been released by SAPPHIRE, with 4 GB of memory which is twice the amount offered in standard memory storage. This ensures that the card is perfectly suited for the high end games such as Battlefield 4 since it meets all the system requirements.
There is no doubt about the fact that the iGame GTX 780 Kudan is absolutely a beast as far as power is concerned and only a few days back it was announced that Colorful is also on their way to releasing its very own flagship iGame Kudan edition of the GTX 780 Ti. Now we have some news which confirms that the iGame has released the GTX 780 Ti Kudan.
HIS is preparing their latest Radeon R9 290X IceQ X2 Turbo Edition graphics cards. Information on this card has been leaked as it was listed on Overclockers UK. The card should be available sometime in 2014. The card features HIS’s IceQ X2 cooling solution and has factory overclocked specifications.
ASUS has recently made an announcement for its Radeon R9 290X DirectCU II series of graphic cards, and this series will incorporate a model that is going to stick to the AMD-reference clocks (which can go up to a 1000 MHz core, 5.00 GHz memory). Another model will also form part of this series and it is the one that offers factory overclocked speeds of up to 1050 MHz core, and 5.40 GHz memory and this one is the DirectCU II OC.
Lately we have been taking a look at a lot of Radeon R9 280X graphics cards. These are based on the Tahiti GPU that was also found in AMD’s Radeon HD 7900 series cards. For those not looking to spend as much money the next step down in AMD’s latest graphics cards is the R9 270X/270 series. These cards are based off the Pitcairn GPU and still offer a very good price / performance ratio. Today we are looking at MSI’s Radeon R9 270 Gaming graphics card. This card will feature a factory overclock and MSI’s own Twin Frozr IV cooling solution. Is this the best graphics card for under $200? We are going to find out!
In addition to their Gamer Series graphics cards Galaxy has also unveiled their GeForce GTX 780 Ti Hall of Fame (HOF) Edition. The board design is identical to the GeForce GTX 780 HOF so you will have the white colored PCB and triple-slot Hall of Fame cooling solution.
