XFX announces R9 295X2 Core Edition graphics card

Written by Slobodan Simic

Reference all the way

XFX has announced its Radeon R9 295X2 Core Edition graphics card. XFX's Core Edition graphics cards are based on AMD's reference design and the new R9 295X2 is not an exception either as it features the same hybrid liquid+air cooler.

Based on two fully-enabled 28nm Hawaii XT GPUs, the R9 295X2 packs 2816 Stream Processors per GPU and 8GB of memory (4GB per GPU) paired up with dual 512-bit memory interface. The GPUs are clocked at 1018MHz while 8GB of memory ended at 5.0GHz.

All AMD AIB partners are sticking to reference design with liquid+air hybrid cooler which features a block/pump for each of the GPU connected to a 120mm radiator while the central fan takes care of the memory, VRM and the PLX bridge chip.

Based on reference design, it is expected that XFX will stick to AMD's suggested retail price of US $1,499.,
