With a massive number of stream processors and a gigantic 4GB GDDR5 memory, this GPU delivers the performance you need for smooth gameplay at extreme settings. The new CrossFire technology allows you to build a multiple graphics card configuration without the use of interconnect bridges. With Ultra Resolution Gaming you will leave HD in the dust by gaming on displays much, much larger. A rich set of AMD innovative technologies are included, such as App Acceleration, AMD PowerTune, AMD ZeroCore, and AMD HD3D technology.

This model is BIOS overclocked for smoother gameplay, and comes equipped with new WINDFORCE 3X 450W cooling system for reliable cooling even under extreme loading.

  • newegg NEW WINDFORCE 3X 2 SLOT 450W cooling system Keeping the same 450W cooling capacity using only two slots, the New WINDFORCE 3X 450W cooling system is equipped with two 8mm and four 6mm cooper heat pipes, inclined fans, and GIGABYTE “Triangle Cool” technology. This not only provides an effective heat dissipation capacity, but also enables higher performance due to a lower temperature.
  • newegg Smart Fan Control With built-in a hardware switch, you can easily change the fan profile to silent mode or performance mode. In Silent Mode, the fan always runs at low speeds to provide a quiet working environment unless the GPU reaches a certain high temperature. In Performance Mode, the fan speed will be dynamically adjusted based on the GPU temperature variation; this can keep the GPU temperature lower to get a better performance.
  • newegg Built for Crossfire The card features the next generation CrossFire support for up to four graphics cards with no interconnect bridge required.
  • newegg Mantle There’s optimization, and then there’s Mantle. Games enabled with Mantle speak the language of GCN architecture to unlock revolutionary performance and image quality. (Application support is required.)

3 out of 5 eggsCrossfire kills one of two of these

Pros: The increase in my FPS for several graphics-intense games was phenomenal. My performance in the games improved. Also, watching HD On Demand shows from my cable provider is also mind blowing.

Cons: But then one of my two XOC-4GD's gave up the ghost. Crossfire killed the graphics card star. Down to one XOC-4GDs. This one is actually the NEW model. The failed one is a Open Box from NewEgg, without a NewEgg return option. Now to see how Gigabyte support works for the bad one. I had called a Gigabyte tech when I bought the Open Box to validate the support of warranty. I was assured Gigabyte had it covered.

Other Thoughts: To think I was getting along with 6875s and then a R9 270. These 290Xs rock.

5 out of 5 eggsFor those that don't want to mess with Overclocking

Pros: Runs cool and quite with the dual modes fan modes.
Nice over clocking from factory.

Cons: "4096 X 2160(via a single HDMI connector or DisplayPort and not supported with two DVI connectors)"

Other Thoughts: Check your PSU for watts and connectors.
I am getting decant frames on star citizen and it is not even optimized or out of beta. But It blows all other games away at max settings. I do have spare 6770HDs running as slaves to this video card on my other two PCI-e slots for secondary - quad displays for Afterburner, teamspeck, music player, OBS, etc... (no Driver conflicts as of yet I have not tried cross fire on them though.) The 290x is strictly main display.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing card

Pros: - Runs ~4-10°C cooler than my stock 290X cards
- Overall higher overclock and power options than a stock 290X
- Remarkably, at even 70% fan speed this card is still barely audible compared to similar cards that sound like leaf blowers
- Gigabyte makes very good components in general, I trust them
- Fans are still silent, still optimal after gaming for thousands of hours for over 10 months, system is powered on 90% of the time
- These cards are beasts and will power all your Ultra settings in games for at least the majority of 2015 if not longer

Cons: - The "fin" on the heatsink is unnecessary and cannot be seen when the card is installed in a bottom-PSU case
- What happened to backplates on high-end cards? I miss them.
- Price in early 2014 was ridiculous because of fad coin mining
- Gigabyte software needs a LOT of work

Other Thoughts: I am very happy with the fleet of 290X cards I bought in 2013/2014. I have two stock cards from XFX and Sapphire and this Gigabyte does outperform both in clocks and cooling. It is startlingly quieter than any card I've ever owned. I've recently been throwing insane shader and mod stuff at it to see if I could get it to hiccup in Skyrim, and I've barely scratched the FPS cap running at 144hz. For the first time in years I've not had to worry about buying a card that wouldn't be able to max out later generation games. This card got me through Battlefield 4, Far Cry 4, Shadows of Mordor, never once needing to rethink Ultra settings or AA quality. I have been running 1080p but I believe only the most demanding next-gen games could really put a dent in this card's performance at higher resolutions.

Average scrypt mining was ~1.3m but I stopped doing that a long time ago. No idea what it would net in the last 6 months.

It was my fault for poking around in my PC with the fans going, but do be careful as the blades are longer and

1 out of 5 eggsBlack Screen Of Death

Pros: AMD has a better price/performance ratio than nVidia, supports Mantle API and has better Linux support for some applications. I've also gotten impressive reliability out of most Gigabyte products.

Cons: After driver install and boot under Windows 7 64-bit and Linux, the screen went black and would not display anything. If you search for "R9 290X black screen" you will find many others with similar problems. It seems that the factory overclocked chips just aren't up to the task. Shame on AMD.

5 out of 5 eggsGIGABYTE 290X

Pros: I just wanted to say that my card works perfect runs all my games on ultra with no shuttering or clipping. I personally think that people with issues with this card are just having isolated issues with there own systems, this card runs perfect.

Cons: None to speak of at the moment

1 out of 5 eggsHorrible Quality, Died the 3rd Day with Constant Crashes

Pros: Worked for a while.

Cons: When I first installed this graphics card I had no problems. The next day I started getting blue screens and constant crashes on my pc. I meet all the requirements for this card so I shouldn't be having problems. Today the card just stopped working. When I connected it to my monitor I just got a message about checking the power for the device. When I plugged in my motherboard instead I had no problems. This card has given me nothing but issues. The fans still spin when I turn it on but that's it. I tried switching the PCI-E cables but that didn't work either.

Other Thoughts: Good looking card, bad quality.

4 out of 5 eggsNice Card with some Hiccups

Pros: This is obviously currently top of the line for AMD right now sans the 295 line of cards. This card will handle just about anything you can throw at it, and the Gigabyte Software isn't terrible, and one of the easier and more straight forward ones to use out of some of the others I've had (MSI Afterburner, ASUS). Installation is easy and the "Uber" and "Silent" mode are easy to decipher. Flashing the BIOS is easy to do.

Cons: It will cause my computer to lock up at stock speeds when just browsing the web. This is obviously a problem with my system as it is a lower spec system for this card that is light years ahead of my other 5 year old components. Also be wary of when you OC, as with any card, because if it causes an error it's difficult to go back. Fortunately the card lets you switch between modes and you can go back and fix a troubled OC.

Other Thoughts: Overall I felt that I paid a good price for this card to justify it over the 280x and 290. Although it has its little quips and issues overall I'm satisfied with my purchase and it's abilities. If you want a card now I see no issues with getting one of these now, but if you're patient it wouldn't hurt to wait for a 390, however expect 390 prices to be high of course. So if you want a great card at a good price then this card would be one to get. Also the cooling on this beast is very well, although I have no solid numbers, when gaming it stays cool and mostly quiet. Final thoughts is to be sure to check what size card can fit in your case. Although I had no problems fitting mine into a Antec 900(2), it was a tight fit.

5 out of 5 eggsEpic.

Pros: The most powerful single GPU AMD has shipped so far.
Great non-reference cooler design makes it run cool for the R9 290x.
Plays "Middle Earth Shadow of Mordor" fully maxed out with no problems.

Cons: Hot. I knew this going in, so I'm not surprised, and with the performance, it hardly counts.

Other Thoughts: This is a vast upgrade from an R7 260x, which was causing me to drop frame rates when settings were cranked to even close to "high" so I wanted to have a powerhouse GPU, and to stay as far away from Nvidia's nasty drivers as possible. Therefore, this GPU was the only logical choice. Glad I bought it. 5/5. Would HIGHLY recommend to anyone interested in a high-class Radeon GPU.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: What Pro HALF of these cards are JUNK.

Cons: Many of these cars were returned only to get another card that was Junk/ WHY are you even selling these to YOUR Valued Customers. The card should not even be on sale it is like throwing money away when you see how many don't work.

Other Thoughts: You can run 2 970 with the a 750 p.s. which is what this card needs to run you can't run 2 of these on 750.
