AMD Radeon R9 295X2 dual-GPU Graphics Card, 500W TDP and $1500

AMD Radeon R9 295X2 dual-GPU

AMD has launched (actually the card will be available in two weeks) its new behemoth: the Radeon R9 295X2, an ultra high-end graphics card that features two full Hawaii GPUs (the same GPU that powers the Radeon R9 290X). The R9 295X2 reference board comes with a liquid cooling solution based on Asetek technology (check out this press release). This liquid cooler is a required mean to dissipate the 500W produced by this dual-GPU card. Now AMD is ready for NVIDIA GTX Titan Z
