No 290x cores are 1000...
Basically this thing will be the same as that Asus Ares II 7970, and it will come in a huge as box just like the Asus. Remember that one?
Funnily enough that card is mentioned in the review below.
The Anandtech AMD Radeon 295x2 Review
Got a 295x2 for a couple of weeks for benchmarking and a quick review for Gizmodo AU. It + cooler + Noctua CPU cooler + each Maximus V Extreme board is reeeeally starting to push the limits of this small case
I can confirm that it runs FTL: Advanced Edition quite well!
I can ask AMD on Monday morning for you, if no one else has it confirmed just yet. Can't remember off the top of my head if it was mentioned.
Edit: just checked my email - RRP $1,899, release "end of April". Nothing more concrete than that sorry.
Yup, came to me in a big metal suitcase.
Damm $1899 thats the price of 3 R9 290X's. Not so sure if I want a 295X2 now. If it was $1500 i'd buy it for sure.
I am in the same boat. I was thinking 1500 would be ok for what you get but as it etches closer to 2k the eagerness to purchase diminishes.
I mean cmon, more than the price of 3 R9 290x's! Itz ridiculous, is AMD forcing us to buy 2 R9 290x's, or atleast making us consider it?
Anyone have problems running Arma 3 in Croxxfire with 2 x 280x ?
It seems rather broken. If it does end up working, the 2 cards merely run at around ~35% load, and if it doesn't work, one card runs at 60% load.
hey guys, I'm looking to upgrade my SLI 2gb gtx 670 oc. looking at ebay some are still selling for over $250. If I can at least get $500 for both would it be worth getting a single 290, 290x or nvidia 780(non-ti)?
I would really like to run single graphics card (preference and wanting to run on my 1440p display at max) and I don't mind losing a couple of FPS as long as I can run games on max on either 1440p display.
I would assume with a higher memory bandwidth and the extra 1-2 gb on top of my current 2gb cards should benefit on my higher than 1080p res displays? and should be able to get a couple more years out of the rig (in my sig) if i add another card in the future?
Would this be worth the upgrade?
It doesn't optimise very well at all in crossfire.
Just jumped on the AMD site for some drivers and I was greeted with
5632 stream processors
512-bit memory interface x 2
Dual liquid-cooled AMD Radeon™ GPUs
Asetek closed-loop liquid cooling
^It's just 2 290x's, at 1.3x the cost of buying them individually..
Worth it for the watercooler alone for anyone looking to crossfire 290x's.
Why? two 290x's with bocks will costs as much as a 295
Exactly, same price pre-installed with warranty intact.
Most people who w/c at this end all have custom loops tho
Installed the 14.4 betas 'release candidate' last night. Havent noticed anything different yet.
Still having to unplug/plug in my second monitor in order to get all three working. Every boot. Urgh.
I had the same problem with my dell monitors. Found out the cables with the monitor not the right spec. Bought proper spec displayport cables no more issue.
What's the prob?
Worked fine for ages, then one day it booted and only 2 of my 3 screens were recognised. Now does that every time. If i unplug one monitor then plug it back in, it all starts working, remembers my eyefinity display group etc.
Only from cold boot, works fine when rebooting. Weird. Might dig up a spare DVI cable and see if that helps.
