Powercolor rolls out Radeon R9 290X OC graphics card

Written by Slobodan Simic

Slight GPU overclock

Powercolor surprised us today. Although most partners followed the AMD's reference design and 1000MHz GPU Boost clock, Powercolor decided that there is still room for a slight factory-overclock and launched two 1030MHz GPU Boost clocked Radeon R9 290X graphics cards.

While the GPU Boost clock got a 30MHz overclock, 4GB of GDDR5 memory on both Powercolor graphics cards remained at reference 1250MHz (5.0GHz effective). As expected, Powercolor will also have two SKUs, with or without an Origin key for the Battlefield 4 game.

In case you somehow managed to miss it earlier, the Radeon R9 290X is based on AMD's new 28nm Hawaii XT GPU with 2816 stream processors, 176 texture memory units, 64 ROPs and a 512-bit memory interface. As we wrote earlier, AMD's official price for the R9 290X is set at US $549 in the US and €399 ex. VAT in Europe.

We are quite sure that Powercolor is working on PCS, PCS+ versions of the Radeon R9 290X and we certainly hope that we will also see the Devil13 version as well, although it will not be before end of November.
