The AMD Radeon™ R9 295X2 Graphics Card is the world's fastest, period. A mammoth eight Gigabytes of memory and more than 11.5 Teraflops of computing power help this card do what it was built to do: be the undisputed graphics champion.


Two AMD Radeon™ R9 series GPUs

When You're Holding All the Cards, it Only Makes Sense to Double Down

We took two of our most advanced, Mantle technology-enabled GPUs and put them together in one cohesive unit. Don't bet against it. Built from striking powder coated aluminum, this GPU is beautiful to behold. It's built to our highest standards, and it sends a message that's loud and clear: this is serious hardware.


☆Factory-Fit Liquid Cooling System

The Most Advanced Dual GPU Liquid Cooling System Ever Designed

In an industry first, the AMD Radeon™ R9 295X2 graphics card reference design ships with an advanced closed-loop liquid cooling system developed jointly with Asetek. Enjoy cool temperatures, quiet operation and consistently high performance, right out of the box.


Newest AMD Technologies

Powered by Mantle Technology and AMD TrueAudio Technology

There's optimization, and then there's Mantle technology. Games enabled with Mantle speak the language of Graphics Core Next to unlock revolutionary performance and image quality. Also AMD TrueAudio Technology puts the magic of surround sound into every headset and helps give sound engineers the freedom to innovate in ways they've never had before. This is what the future of PC gaming sounds like.

5 out of 5 eggsMust Have! With Two Exceptions You Must Be Okay With

Pros: Beast Card that beats the Titan X (12 GB VRAM) in most cases.
High reliability and built-in liquid cooling.
Capable of 4K gaming without supersampling at around 45-60 FPS.
Future proof your computer by installing a second one in the future and having 16 GB VRAM and 23 Teraflops of computing power.

Cons: You must understand that the 120nm fan by itself will not cool the card below its 75celsius threshold unless you place another fan on top of the radiator as a push/pull configuration, then it will handle anything never getting over 70 celsius. So this is a cheap fix that isn't a downside to me.

If you have anything less than a 5930K intel hexacore processor, don't expect to be able to utilize two R9 295x2s in your case in the future... well, you can, but the processor/motherboard lanes must be able to handle it. The 5930K has 42 lanes, which is enough to support the 4 individual GPUs.

Other Thoughts: With the knowledge of how to get around the two "cons" that aren't really cons, this card is the best, I love it, and you should get one.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for the great review! We are happy you are pleased.

4 out of 5 eggsxfx 295x2

Pros: Best Priced 295x2 on the market. I have an i7 4770 and I play any game on 1080p above 100fps. With 4k My frames range from 40 to 60 depending on the game. Water cooling works phenomenally well. I OC'd my core clock to 1200 MHz and my memory to 1400 MHz. Only one time did I have a game crash which I believe to be unrelated to the OC because of extensive bench marking that I did with Heaven while maintaining stable gpu's. Also with the Water cooling system that this gpu comes with my gpu's never go above 68C.

Cons: Power Consumption, 500W Standard, 580W with my OC. Unless you are running a Haswell-E CPU, you have exhausted your PCI-e lanes.

Other Thoughts: This is a great card, but for any potential costumer I would seriously look into the XFX R9 Fury X. For a Slightly smaller price-tag you can still rival the Titan X. The memory bandwidth is a little excessive and is more marketing than anything else, but it wins it's money in shaders and not exhausting PCI-e slots. Seriously Look at benchmarks between the Titan x, R9 295x2, and the R9 Fury X before you buy.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Card. Truly A Beast!

Pros: Yeah, drivers. Yeah, runs hot. Yeah it needs power. But this watercooled card is a monster! It smashes through games like it doesn't care. It has yet to stumble. I currently spend my off time on The Witcher 3 on Ultra (2K res); no problems at all. I got it at a great price (effectively $550.00 after promo and rebate). Mega deal!

Cons: Well it runs hot and it is watercooled so requires some space considerations. And it is an AMD. That seems to be a negative for some fanboys.

Other Thoughts: If you can find it for what I paid and have the space in your case, I recommend you get it. if not, well there's the Fury X and the 980 Ti. Not as cost effective but somewhat comparable performance in some applications. On others, well, pay double and add another card. That's the only way you will be able to achieve similar results.

1 out of 5 eggsit is not 8gb

Pros: it is 4gb with 2 gpus. they advertise 8. it will not utilize all of it. so before u buy it, know its not 8gb

Cons: isnt that great

Manufacturer Response:


Technically it is 4GB per GPU, each GPU uses its own 4 GB and effectively is a 4GB card.

Are you having any issues? please contact us for support.

1 out of 5 eggsDo Not Purchase

Pros: It was on sale.

Cons: Drivers, instability, 2 of 2 cards are doa. Not sure if this company knows what "quality control" is. Will never purchase from this manufacturer again. Just went to go for a another RMA, but it has now past the 14 day mark(because it took 7 days for RMA, send back and receive).

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Eric,

We're sorry you are having issues. Since you had 2 cards not post in your system, please contact us for help with setup. It will only take a few moments and hopefully we can find the issue.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA but XFX Support is Excellent

Pros: None, this card has arrived DOA after extensive testing on multiple rigs that have been certified working by another card. Will be left at one star until receive the replacement.

Cons: The card was dead when it got here. Port failed to display but it lit up and my mobo recognized it was there. I am not disappointed as i realize factory testing would add a lot to the price of this card. Id rather pay a lower price and have a bigger chance of sending an item back for free.

Other Thoughts: XFX support is amazing. It took what seemed less than 5 minutes to get to a human and when I did I was very happy. The technician was very informal and it was as if I was speaking to a fellow enthusiast who answers calls in between gaming sessions. This made the conversation really quick. After I explain my troubles he said the card was for sure faulty and to get it replaced.

I've never considered XFX a company i wanted a GPU from because of its rather conservative styling but because of their customer support from now on they will be my first choice for GPU manufacturer in the future.

Now I hope Neweggs replacement policy lives up to its good reputation.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Alex,

We're sorry you had issues, but are glad you were able to get ahold of it so quickly.

As always, if you ever have any issues, please let us know.

5 out of 5 eggsUpgraded review

Pros: I just wanted to upgrade my previous review "Dead @91 days"
And say XFX did a great job on my warranty repair. It took them only a few days once they got the card and one they determined it was defective they sent me a brand new (not refurbished) Card.

The card is working perfectly and is cooling better.

Return shipping was 45.00 but that's cheaper than a new card I guess. Would be nice to have shipping paid if its XFX fault but ummmm. Anyways its working again and I'm happy

Also thanks to the Newegg support person that got this rolling for me.

Cons: Makes a good space heater

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for the great review Bill. We appreciate your time and efforts. If you have any questions or need any help, please let us know.

3 out of 5 eggsgoing good then failure

Pros: the card looks amazing in the computer
I love it I can run any game max settings without any sort of problem
fits in my case just barely
card is an ATX board plus one hard drive and length for anyone wondering about how long it is

Cons: runs hot but if you're reading this you probably know every other comment the card runs hot
power-hungry watch what power supply you buy this card requires a powerful power supply

Other Thoughts: the card after three months decided to randomly not start up and shut down about 10 to 15 minutes in the running of thousand one power supply that I run the card and at 1080 P for monitor which should be well below the requirement for the card
all like to know if it's the car causing this problem or my part thousand watt power supply.

Manufacturer Response:

Hey Jack,

We're sorry you are having issues with you 295X2. neither part should be acting up, but i think you have found the 2 major culprits. Please contact me for warranty servicing options and troubleshooting.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Card, AMD holds it back.

Pros: Performs very well, Water cooled, Stays cool without much extra.

Cons: AMD Driver support sucks, you get issues often with new games. The last official driver release was 12/8/2014 (Before GTA 5, The Witcher 3, Etc) And because of this, these games suffer without using beta drivers (Which crash more often)

Other Thoughts: The card itself is fantastic. Using the Beta drivers for GTA 5, I am able to play at ultra on 1080p at a solid 70-75 FPS without fail. Card sits at around 60c when running the game. The only thing I think could be an improvement to that would be upgrading my case fans (they are ok, but not great) and I think I could get that down a couple more degrees. Otherwise, it performs flawlessly. Other people complain about throttling due to heat issues, but I feel like that is their own fault. I have a Corsair Carbide 300r (6 other fans in the case) and no AC in my house and still have no issues with heat causing throttling.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello and thank you for the great review. We appreciate your time and kind words.

If you have any issues, please let us know.
