This review is from: XFX R9290AENFC Radeon R9 290 4GB 512-Bit GDDR5 CrossFireX Support Video Card
Its fast, this card will go toe to toe with the 290x,780 and the titan. Most bang for your buck. For $400 bucks you get the performance of a $700-$1000 card. Great driver support*. AMD is known for dropping the ball on drivers but they have knocked it out of the park this time around. They have been right on top of bugs and pushing increased performance with each update. Plays anything at ultra settings. Units scale well in crossfire and TriFire. ( I have Trifire.)
The market has swept up all the R9 cards b/c of litecoin. Venders have cranked up the prices and availability has become low,
Heat, its not an issue. Noise, not an issue.
Using the Overdrive software that comes with all AMD cards you just need to set the fan speed to 57-61% and only allow for a max temp of 65-70*.
My first AMD card since the Rage128 Pro. I normally use EVGA products.
No heat and no loud fans.
