Sapphire first with factory-overclocked R9 295X2

Written by Slobodan Simic

Higher GPU and memory clocks

Sapphire has now officially announced the availability of its latest Radeon R9 295X2 graphics cards, the standard Sapphire R9 295X2 and the factory-overclocked Sapphire R9 295X2 OC Limited Edition.

Both R9 295X2 graphics cards from Sapphire will be based on reference design with hybid liquid+air AMD/Asetek Project Hydra cooler and pack two 28nm Hawaii XT GPUs with 2816 Stream Processors, 176 TMUs, 64 ROPs and 4GB of GDDR5 memory for each GPU, paired up with a dual 512-bit memory interface. Both R9 295X2 graphics cards will also ship in a rather neat aluminum suitcase.

While the standard Sapphire R9 295X2 will stick at 1018MHz for the GPU and 5.0GHz for 8GB of GDDR5 memory, the Sapphire R9 295X2 OC Limited Edition will be factory-overclocked to 1030MHz for the GPU and 5.2GHz for the memory. While it does not sound that impressive, this is currently the only factory-overclocked R9 295X2 on the market and will surely bring some performance improvements, especially with higher-resolutions and multi-screen setups.

Sapphire will probably stick to the suggested retail price of US $1499 for its standard R9 295X2 while we are yet to see what kind of price premium Sapphire has in mind for the R9 295X2 OC Limited Edition.
