Heck yeah, developped as Project Hydra, we review the Radeon R9-295x2. For a while now AMD has been teasing this BEAST of a product, well look no further, here are Guru3D.com we got your back covered as we'll show and teach you everything you need to know about the Radeon R9-295x2. The graphics card is the single most fastest graphics card we have ever have had in our lab, it crazy fast as it is powered by not one, but two Hawaii XT graphics processors, say Aloha to that my man!
Each Hawaii GPU has 2816 Shader processors on-board, and yeah this doubly whammy and very tasty product offers everything in twofold. That means two times 6 Billion transistors, two 512-bit Memory bus with 2x4 GB - 5.0 Gbps GDDR5 memory, and combined that totals up towards a cool 11.5 TFLOPS of compute performance -- coughs -- yes indeed I said it -- 11.5 TFLOP of compute performance. But do some quick math realize you get a product offering a whopping 5632 Stream Processors, 352 TMUs and 128 ROPs. That means the era of Ultra HD gaming now really has begun as we have a card that is very capable at dishing out nice 50+ FPS framerates in Ultra HD whilst you have enabled all the eye-candy in image quality settings you want. This will be a focus in our review as well. Will we be able to play the hottest games at that whopping 8.2 Mpixels at a 3840x2160 resolution @ 60 Hz.
Each Hawaii chip is paired with a cool 4 GB GDDR5 graphics memory running over a 512-bit memory interface. That means the card in total has 8 GB of graphics memory. Now you'd figure that AMD would at the very least be a little conservative when it comes to the core clock frequency of the GPUs as two of these puppies will produce quite a bit of heat and utilize a nice sum of power, but no Sir... each GPU runs at (up-to) 1018 MHz, hmmmhh yummie.
Anyway, I hope you are as excited about this review as we are. Join us in the reference article, have a peek at the product below that is the X2 and then let's head on-wards into the review.
