AMD Radeon R9 295X2 8GB Graphics Card Review


The AMD Radeon R9 295X2 graphics card is finally upon us. I know a

lot of people have been eagerly awaiting this graphics card for the

last few months – I myself I have been tracking its existence since

AMD phased out the HD 7990 – it was inevitable there would be a

replacement. Yet when we first got our hands on the R9 290X I wasn't

so sure how feasible a dual Hawaii GPU graphics card was going to be

– the R9 290X was already an immensely hot graphics card with

significant heat and noise problems – how could AMD make a graphics

card with two of these GPUs work? The inspiration for the AMD Radeon

R9 295X2 appears to have come from ASUS' Ares II graphics card which

made use of a hybrid cooling solution on a similar dual GPU solution.

AMD clearly knew of the weaknesses of the Hawaii core and they have

shaped the AMD Radeon R9 295X2 to correct those weaknesses. Thus AMD's

first ever water cooled reference graphics card has been born and what

a performance monster it looks set to be. With two fully enabled

Hawaii GPUs the Radeon R9 295X2 boasts an impressive 12.4 billion

transistors, 5632 Stream processors ( 2 x 2816) and 11.5 TFLOPS of

compute power.
