AMD Radeon R9 295X2 Dual Hawaii Graphics Card Details Leaked

Looks like the next generation dual Hawaii graphics card isn’t going to be called R9 290X2. At CeBIT, it has been reported that AMD revealed to a limited number of people (and behind closed doors) a dual Hawaii graphics card – the AMD Radeon R9 295X2 codenamed Vesuvius. The revelation happened after AMD sent out “top secret” messages to tech reviewers containing a photo of their faces in mirrored effect. There’s also a note saying that two is better than one. Well that was pretty obvious.

AMD Radeon R9 295X2 Clock Speed

According to reports, the AMD Radeon R9 295X2 will have a clock speed of 1GHz. However it did not report whether the R9 295X2 will feature two full-fledged Hawaii chips. It could be two chips based on the R9 290X or two chips based on the R9 290 which features 2560 stream processors. It is also rumored that the R9 295X2 will feature an 8GB of memory.

R9 295X2 Features Hybrid Cooler

Since this graphics card will be running at higher clock speed, it is also expected that this is going to be one big hot graphics card, emitting heat at high temperatures. And the only way to cool down this kind of heat is a water cooling solution. A triple fan with large heatsink might not be enough to cool down the R9 295X2 Vesuvius specially at higher clock speeds.

We have seen before the Asus ARES II, based on AMD 7990 Dual GPU, featuring a hybrid water cooler. We might be seeing a similar cooling solution like in the ARES II.

Last time, we also posted an article regarding the rumored ASUS ARES III featuring 8GB of memory. There is a big possibility that the Asus ARES III is based on the R9 295X2 Dual Hawaii GPU.

AMD Radeon R9 295X2 vs GeForce GTX 790

The clash of the titan graphics cards is back. It’s been a while since we last saw two opposing forces built with dual GPUs fight together. Last time was way back with the Radeon HD 7990 and GTX 690. It won’t be long now until we see another two dual GPUs battling for supremacy.

I love computers since I was a kid. I’m always fascinated with new technology, especially in the PC world. Many years ago, I was curious if the reviews I read were true and real. So, why not test them myself and share my first-hand experience? And thus, here we are. Thanks for reading!
