First Look Part Two

We told you that they took the power requirements seriously. We can't remember the last time there were so many warning stickers. We do love the big Radeon logo though, and the slotted nature of the cooler is aesthetically pleasing. It's good to see it's only two 8-Pins.

It's a great looking card. We like an all-metal construction, especially on a high-end model. The extra rigidity it provides, as well as the aura of quality, definitely ticks all our boxes.

Designed around a need for a 4K compatible graphics card, the 295X2 doesn't only cover a 4K display, but with DVI and four DisplayPorts it has all your needs catered for, whether it's a single monster display, or a whole wall of monitors in Eyefinity. It's particularly pleasing to see it's rigidly keeping to the dual-slot format as well.

With the combination of two R9 290X GPUs on the R9 295X2 as well as AMD's emerging technologies such as Mantle and their TrueAudio built in DSP, this PowerColor R9 295X2 has all the potential to be a game-changing graphics card. Factory fitted watercooling, gorgeous shroud and more beef than a herd of cattle, we can't wait to see how it performs in our full review.

Such a shame it only has a 120 rad on it, a 240 would been so much better. Lower temps, lower noise and more overclocking headroom.

There are/soon to be full cover blocks for it now, so results from a fully watercooled 295x2 should be interesting. The Titan Z is out on the 29th as well, it will be interesting how the two compare.Quote

Would love to have one, yet the AIO is not really what I hoped for. If it was an AIO with standard fittings so I could plumb it into a loop, now that would be cool. Its all a dream as I have not the money anyway.Quote

Love this card. Really does look like its going to make the nvidia fanboys upset. Really can't see how the Titan Z could possibly match this in performance, noise and most certainly not heat. AND even if it does, it's still half the price!

Considering according to all the reviews I have seen this thing beats 2 780Ti in SLI 90% of the time, and even titan blacks, which is all the titan Z is after all. Due to thermals you would have thought the Titan Z will have to be clocked down since that cooler couldn't even keep the 690 (a pair of underclocked GK104) below 83c ish, I can't possibly see how it could keep 2 full GK110 cool, let alone at stock clocks.

Lets see. Regardless, can't wait to see this review!Quote
