AMD R9-295x2 THE BEAST RELEASED
Each Hawaii GPU has 2816 Shader processors on-board, and yeah this doubly whammy and very tasty product offers everything in twofold. That means two times 6 Billion transistors, two 512-bit Memory bus with 2x4 GB - 5.0 Gbps GDDR5 memory, and combined that totals up towards a cool 11.5 TFLOPS of compute performance -- coughs -- yes indeed I said it -- 11.5 TFLOP of compute performance. But do some quick math realize you get a product offering a whopping 5632 Stream Processors, 352 TMUs and 128 ROPs. That means the era of Ultra HD gaming now really has begun as we have a card that is very capable at dishing out nice 50+ FPS framerates in Ultra HD whilst you have enabled all the eye-candy in image quality settings you want. This will be a focus in our review as well. Will we be able to play the hottest games at that whopping 8.2 Mpixels at a 3840x2160 resolution @ 60 Hz.
Each Hawaii chip is paired with a cool 4 GB GDDR5 graphics memory running over a 512-bit memory interface. That means the card in total has 8 GB of graphics memory. Now you'd figure that AMD would at the very least be a little conservative when it comes to the core clock frequency of the GPUs as two of these puppies will produce quite a bit of heat and utilize a nice sum of power, but no Sir... each GPU runs at (up-to) 1018 MHz,
