Beginning the week of April 21st, you’ll be able to get your hands on the world’s fastest graphics card… the R9 295X2. Built around dual R9 290X GPU cores and cooled by an Asetek AIO liquid cooler, this beast of a graphics card supports all the latest Gaming Evolved technologies including GCN, True Audio, and games built around the Mantle API.

As you can see by the slide below, the specifications are impressive to say the least.

As mentioned above, Asetek designed an AIO liquid cooler to try and keep this beast’s temperatures in check.

The card will come completely assembled and decked out with a metal backplate.

Ultra performance is the name of the game with the R9 295X2; and by looking at AMD’s in-house 3DMark Fire Strike scores, it would be hard to argue that point.

We’re working hard to get a review sample, so stay tuned for that. In the meantime, save your pennies because the R9 295X2 will set you back a cool $1499 once available. You have to hand it to AMD for continuing to push the limits of graphics performance, and this card definitely aims to do just that.
