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.)
  • newegg AMD TrueAudio Technology AMD TrueAudio technology brings the world’s first programmable audio pipeline marking a new frontier in realism for PC gamers.

AMD TrueAudio technology enhances audio realism by simulating the human brain’s perception of real-world sound, working in concert with the user’s existing audio hardware to recreate a lifelike experience.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Perf/Dollar

Pros: So far I've been really impressed by the performance. I've been able to overclock the core to 1086MHz through CCC--no voltage tweeks yet. Memory is overclocked to a conservative 1300MHz, I saw artifacts at 1500MHz. I'm scoring 12662 in Fire Strike. Performance in game has been very good, tested in Dragon Age Inquisition and Witcher 3 thus far. With mostly ultra and a few high settings, I'm achieving fairly high FPS in each title (around 60 FPS with spikes in the 70's). Freesync enabled, game play is incredibly smooth, it makes a huge difference in the over all immersion. The build quality of the card and cooler is very good overall.

Cons: Unable to achieve higher memory overclock, 1500MHz introduced artifacts.

Other Thoughts: Freesync is Awesome! Gigabyte makes a quality product, cooler is excellent, high quality components. Great bang for your buck, especially with rebate. I can't wait to see how this card performs under DX12

1 out of 5 eggsWorked first.

Pros: Worked great for a couple of months.

Cons: After about 5 months the screen would startup with streaks and flickering. Sent in an RMA (paid 40$ shipping) and got it back in approximately three weeks. The "fixed" product worked for about a month or so and I am encountering the same problem again. It's quite frustrating.

Other Thoughts: The graphics card worked really great for the time it did work, however, I am extremely disappointed in the longevity of the card and the service. If it were fixed, or replaced properly I would not have encountered the same issue a month later.

5 out of 5 eggsLove it

Pros: It's only been a year since I put together my first rig, but I felt it was time for an upgrade to get ready for the new upcoming games. I did not regret the decision. The upgrade from the Radeon 7870 from Gigabyte blows it out of the water. Witcher 3 can now be run at max settings without a hiccup in frame rate. Grand Theft Auto V can be ran max settings with smooth 60 frames. Generally any game I had graphical settings turned down for prior to this card, I can now turn on and not worry about any flaw in performance. If you're on the fence about buying this, it's worth every penny.

Cons: If you have a weaker processor and you're running a triple-A title on max settings, temperatures are going to fly, it's not going to keep up with this beast of a card.

Other Thoughts: Played Hatred for the first time this week out of boredom. I was racking up the body count, and the number of entities laying around - i theorize - put strain on my FX-6300 processor. The Graphics Card kept up and continued to run smoothly, but an excess amount of heat began coming from the ventilation on the PC, thought I smelled some burning too. While the card can run the game, make sure your processor can too, especially on games where textures can build up easily.

Pros: It works fine with an Antec NeoECO 620C which is a 620W power supply.

5 out of 5 eggsGigabyte 290x Review

Pros: I built my first PC about 5 months ago which includes 8GB 1866 RAM, FX-8300, Asus mobo, 700wtt PS, and 290x and i gotta say that this 290x can run pretty much everything i throw at it. I can run BF4 , Unity, Witcher 3 without a problem on High settings and 20-30 fps on ultra. I love this card looks so much better than current gen consoles, and it runs really quiet i don't really hear it when its running a game.

Cons: The only issues i find is that it can run a little warm but its normal when your playing any game maxed out imho.

Other Thoughts: I haven't had any issues with drivers and so far I love this GPU get it!!!

1 out of 5 eggsCard WAS great, company is terrible

Pros: The card once ran everything I threw at it on high settings. Stayed pretty quiet while doing it.

Cons: Now it's shutting my whole computer off randomly due to some kind of memory corruption. Can be just watching youtube or anything not intensive, and it will shut the PC off, card no where near over heating. Gigabyte bios software doesn't even detect the card. When trying to run a benchmark, whole PC shuts off within 2 minutes. I paid the shipping to send to Gigabyte, their RMA team tells me the card is fine. I checked all other hardware, none of it is faulty, the problem Is the card. Google search pulls up others with similar issues.

Other Thoughts: Wish I would have done research on Gigabyte as a company before purchasing one of their products. I predict this will end in a call to BBB.

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
