Engineered with Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture that unifies graphics processing and compute cores for higher utilization, the ultra-performance VisionTek Radeon R9 290 graphics card can deliver nearly five teraflops of compute performance, up to 947MHz clock speeds, and over 300GBps memory bandwidth to support 4K gaming with over 100 layers of effects. All this adds up to a card that is the performance/value ratio leader to other competing GPU-brand based cards.

RADEON R9 290 Side View

To offer visually immersive realism that simply blows HD away, the R9 290 supports UltraHD 4K (3840 x 2160) resolution, which is 4X the resolution of 1080p. By employing Eyefinity technology, this card can span multiple 4K monitors into one large panoramic display to create the ultimate gaming rig. And to hear what you’ve been missing, True Audio technology utilizes an onboard audio processing chip that delivers accurate 3D surround sound within games and special audio effects like reverbs and room simulations while reducing CPU load.

An Audio and Visual Immersion That Redefines the Gaming Experience

GCN Architecture: A new design for AMD’s unified graphics processing and compute cores that allows them to achieve higher utilization for improved performance and efficiency.

AMD Eyefinty™ Technology: Run multiple displays from a single graphics board and expand your gaming field of view across all displays.

AMD App Acceleration: AMD App Accelerator creates a "co-processing" environment in which the compute processing potential in your AMD Radeon™ Graphics processor works together with the system central processor, to accelerate enabled applications.

AMD HD3D Technology: Supports the latest stereoscopic 3D content and display technologies. Play 3D games, watch Blu-ray 3D videos, and edit 3D photos on your 3D monitors, TV, or projector.

AMD CrossFire™ Technology: Multi-GPU support offers superior scalability. Increase your gaming performance up to 2X with AMD CrossFire™ technology, 2.75X for TriFire configurations, or 3.75X with QuadFire configs.

AMD HD Media Accelerator: Assumes rendering responsibility for HD encode (VCE)/decode (MPEG-4 ASP, H.264. MVC, MPEG2, etc.) and conclusively enable superior video playback quality with advanced hardware post-processing algorithms.

AMD PowerPlay™ Technology: AMD PowerPlay™ Technology dynamically adjusts clock speeds in response to GPU load, saving power for just when you need it.

AMD PowerTune Technology: Maximizes performance under load conditions by dynamically increasing the GPU engine clock to take advantage of unused Thermal Design Power (TDP) headroom. Also allows users to configure their own TDP limit, within a provided range, for even higher performance or more power efficiency.

Advanced GDDR5 Memory Technology: GDDR5 memory delivers higher GPU performance by providing the highest available memory bandwidth.

Intelligent Overclocking Control: AMD latest Boost State technology automatically allows the R9 290 to run higher than the base core speed if it’s operating below power, current, and temperature specification limits.

Dolby® TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio™: Support of content protected, high bandwidth, 7.1 channels of surround sound over HDMI and DisplayPort.

Microsoft DirectX® 11.2: Get intense gaming performance and unrivalled image quality with stunning 3D visual effects, realistic lighting and lifelike imagery.

3D Mark Fire Strike: Greater Than 8000: 3DMark Fire Strike is the world’s most popular dedicated gaming benchmarking tool used by millions of gamers, top hardware review sites, and many of the world's leading manufacturers to measure PC gaming performance.

4 out of 5 eggsNice Card

Pros: This card plays movies and vids at 4k rez nicely on my 50 inch 4k tv....overclocking makes them look verry good! All games run at ultra settings at 1080 rez perfect, run a little warm sometimes reaching 85 c.

Cons: With a single card 4k gaming at high settings is out of the expected. Im hoping that 2 or 3 cards will run cooler and at high settings at 4k rez. Basicly not really a con, but took one egg off just because they do advertise this as a 4k capable card. Tomb Raider and Watch Dogs set to ultra at 4k rez card almost instantly overheats past 90c computer shut down ! But i plan to install 3 of these in my new build and back everything off and see what happens....hoping for stable high settings at 4k.

Other Thoughts: Verry nice card just a little hot ...i will say that i have it installed in my r4 Aurora and not much breathing room....i took the side panel off and put a fan blowing cold air right on the card,helped alot but still at 4k rez one card cannot handle high settings.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat card

Pros: works just as well as the first one i bought which is frankly pretty darn amazing.

Cons: the price gouging that's going on... bought my first r9 290 the day they released for MSRP. Decided to buy two more and ended up paying what would have bought me 3 more and left some starbucks money in my pocket if I had done it earlier.

Other Thoughts: The really sad part is after all that price gouging the cards still didn't come with a game bundle. Somewhat disappointed in Newegg for not holding a little closer to MSRP. -1 egg for the price gouging. Just because everyone else is doing it doesn't make it right.
