A recent report from Nordic Hardware claims that AMD is will be releasing the much anticipated AMD Radeon R9 295 X2 Vesuvius Dual Hawaii graphics card on April 8, 2014. That’s just more than a week from now. The codename R9 295 X2 isn’t really a confirmed name, before it was R9 290X X2. But more or less you get the idea. AMD’s #2betterthan1 campaign has been around for quite some time now. NVIDIA has already announced their GTX Titan Z Dual GPU graphics card. Perhaps AMD had already anticipated NVIDIA’s move and decided to unleash the “Vesuvius” after NVIDIA has made their move.
The rumored April 8 release date of the AMD R9 295 X2 could either be a paper lunch or the unveiling of the card itself. According to reports the dual Hawaii graphics card is said to feature a custom liquid cooling solution, similar to what the Asus ARES II has.
At this time, specs of the Vesuvius are still at the dark. We are not sure whether this card will be powerful than the recently released GTX Titan Z or the upcoming GTX 790. But there are also reports claiming that the upcoming AMD dual Hawaii card will be cheaper than the Titan Z.
Probably NVIDIA didn’t release the GTX 790 Dual GPU card yet, because they are still waiting for AMD to reveal their dual Hawaii graphics card. Anyway, whether or not AMD will be releasing the AMD R9 295 X2 Dual Hawaii Vesuvius graphics card on April 8, expect something powerful will be released in the following days or weeks to come.
