AMD presents dual-GPU Radeon R9 295 X2

It is now official – after weeks of speculation AMD has publicly presented its dual-GPU Radeon R9 295 X2 video card.

There are any major surprises around this release as the official specs of the new graphics card match what we reported a while ago. Users get a video card with two Hawaii XT graphics processors at 1 GHz and GDDR5 memory that sports a 512-bit memory bus and runs at 5000 MHz effectively; the memory capacity is 8 GB split in 4 GB chunks for each GPU on the card.

The Hawaii XT GPUs feature a total of 5632 stream processors (2 x 2816), 352 TMUs (2 x 176) and 128 ROPs (2 x 64). All this power comes at a price though – you will need a really powerful power supply unit as the Radeon R9 295 X2 comes with two 8-pin external power connectors and needs 500 watts of power. A water cooling system that looks like the one on ASUS ARES II graphics cards will take care of all the heat generated. This means that you also get a 120 mm heat sink and two 120 mm cooling fans.

Did you expect that the Radeon R9 295 X2 will be cheap? We bet you didn’t so here’s the price – prepare USD 1499 to make this card yours. Speaking of this we should also say that the Radeon R9 295 X2 is now available for purchase online and in stores near you.
