The Radeon R9 290X, the AMD's new flagship GPU, offers the weapon of choice for gamers who demand the best. It's based on the new 28nm Hawaii GPU architecture and introduces the support for DirectX 11.2, capable of rendering reality-redefining imagery in the hottest titles. 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. With these technology advancements, you'll get more than one way to elevate your gaming experience.

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.)

5 out of 5 eggsSilent But Deadly

Pros: So this card isn't totally silent, although compared to the reference you could say it is. Gigabyte brands model is very quiet even under stress.

I only put my rig together about a week ago, but with that in mind so far all is well. Other people are reporting blue screening and driver issues, I have had no problems whatsoever so far. The card performs beautifully and slays games. I'm playing Metro Redux currently and with all the settings cranked (Anti-aliasing only at 2x) it stays at 60fps most of the time.

Gigabyte mounted their card with three large fans that really help keep the card at a decent temperature. At idle mine sits around 39 celsius and under loads it can go up to the low 70s.

I'd definitely recommend this card to an enthusiast such as myself!

Oh and newegg as always was helpful, punctual and efficient.

Cons: None currently at this time.

5 out of 5 eggsBest Card I've Owned.

Pros: Fast. Very stable once the temperature issue is dealt with.

Cons: Hot, too many fans on stock cooler promote dust build-up.

Other Thoughts: I tore the stock windforce cooler off it and installed a custom waterblock on the card now it runs like a charm. Should have come stock water cooled like the 295x.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty good product

Pros: Great performance, been pretty stable so far, card stays pretty clean

Cons: Gets pretty hot, takes a while to cool down, and driver support is iffy, no fault of Gigabyte though

Other Thoughts: Pretty good card. I've been very happy with it overall. It does get kind of hot so make sure you have a case with good airflow. I've not had any of the issues many of the reviews mention. It's been a solid card for me.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Cooling System!

Pros: The Best Cooling system you can find on any GPU. Run's cool and you can't hear it even under load.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I have the R9 290 OC Edition and it is great. This card does have some extra stream processors that will really make a difference at very high res.

1 out of 5 eggsRMA while you can... it's not the software.

Pros: When you tinker with them long enough to get them to work... let alone in crossfire and not crash.... GREAT! A huge improvement to my lone GTX 760 I had previously.

Cons: Instability... the dreaded graphical glitches that take the whole screen followed by a display driver crash... followed closely by a complete computer lock-up. What's worse is that sometimes you can't even restart the computer for days because after windows boots to home screen you have roughly 10 seconds until black screen. Real nice... I've already done 6 restarts today trying to get past that 10 second mark.

Other Thoughts: These cards have been nothing but a headache for me. Bought two in early February along with a 850 watt power supply to feed them for my gaming pc. installed them. First round of problems came shortly after. should have RMA'd then and there. Crashes mid game that were preceded with graphical anomalies across the screen. My mistake was I tried to deal with the problems. I checked everything, software was up to date cards were seated properly. taking out one of the 290x's would fix for a period of time then the errors would become too much again. switch out the 290x with a gtx 760 and perfect. Eventually I thought the problem was my power supply not giving the 290x's the power they need. switched my old 650 Watt PSU in running just one card and that worked for the last few months with glitches still happening but I hoped that maybe it was a software problem that would be fixed in the AMD driver... Well looks like my waiting might have done me over. Not even sure if I can even get replacements for both of my 290x's anymore. As I seem to have wasted $1400 for two paper weights.

2 out of 5 eggsI give up. I gave it six months though.

Pros: Great when it works.

Cons: It rarely works.

Other Thoughts: Same issues as many other reviewers (BSOD, artifacts, flicker, microstutter, etc.). I enjoyed the challenge of problem-solving at first - changing drivers, tweaking with Afterburner, searching for solutions on the Net, making sure the problems were not from power supply, mobo, memory, whatever. The ratio of downtime/uptime has slowly increased to the point where the card is unusable and I'm running only on standard VGA settings. I'll order something different and try to forget about Gigabyte.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Works very well when its working.

Cons: I've owned two of these cards, they have both burnt out, the first was DOA and the second lasted about two months.

Heats the room up even when idle.

Other Thoughts: Don't buy one of these GPU's from gigabyte. EVER!

1 out of 5 eggsGreat Card, For a week

Pros: Favorite card in a long time, when I first got it. Handled everything like a champ with great cooling and graphics quality

Cons: Started fullscreen glitching and locking up PC so I RMAed it. Im a computer techician so I understand parts come in DOA, end up malfuctioning, or etc so I didnt hold it against the product. Now after receiving it from the RMA process, it worked for about 15 minutes after driver was installed. Restarted it and the screen starts freaking out with black flashing and broken lines. So 2nd RMA begins...

Other Thoughts: I am not blaming the 290x chip which is a marvel and is amazing from other manufacturers. Im giving Gigabyte 1 Egg, for releasing a wave of malfunctioning hardware to consumers and not accepting the blame

1 out of 5 eggsReplacement Borked

Pros: Fast, no matter how much AA I throw at it, the FPS doesn't go down.

Cons: This one lasted a little longer this time, but it also started getting corruption on textures and level geometry in games.
Shortly after the video driver crashes.
First time it happened I restarted my computer and it was fine.
Then it happened more quickly, and everytime it happened was sooner then the previous time.
Their is something fundamentally wrong with these cards.

Other Thoughts: Not worth the price of admission. I've seen some people "fix" the issue by underclocking/undervolting the memory, but what's the point?
It's like buying an F12Berlinetta and being told you can only drive no faster than 80 km/h
