Several months ago we were being teased with promo items that included two cans of chips labeled with #2ChipsAreBetterThan1 as well as bottle of Hawaiian water. The reveal turned out to be two Hawaii-based GPUs on a single card. There are two 290X GPUs configured on this single card to be exact. This single card performs better than two 290Xs Crossfired.
This is the fastest single cardRadeon GPU. I "accidentally” ordered one and decided to build a new PC around it.*
Each Hawaii XT GPU on this card has 4GB of RAM giving this card a total of 8GB DDR5 Memory with a 5000Mhz clock.
Right out of the box, this GPU supports a 5 monitor Eyefinity setup. I only have 3 monitors and am tempted to buy 2 more. I’m also ready for some 4K gaming as well.
I plan on both 3D gaming as well as multi-monitor gaming with this GPU. Who knows, maybe I can crossfire this in the future.
This XFX card features a factory-fitted closed loop liquid cooling system developed by Asetek. The card itself feels hefty with its all-metal construction. Even the shroud is metal.
