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.
