Well, you can always leave it to Chiphell (Asian website) to be the first to somehow get their hands on a disclosed product. This time it is the eagerly awaited dual-GPU monster from AMD, theĀ*Radeon ...

VRM, PCB & VRAM modules are cooled traditionally, fine. I just don't understand how a 120mm rad is enough to cool Two 290X GPU cores ?

Be interesting to see how that single 120 Rad cools both those chips! Must be using 3000RPM fans lol I imagine the core clocks won't be too high. Can't see it Overclocking to great with only that 120 rad.

Ah, every new dual GPU solution is more expensive than the last one. 1500$ is too much AMD.

Obviously you've fallen for the misinformation that the 290X is a KW TDP MONSTER! Asus did it with two 7970's and their TDP isn't much lower than the 290X, in fact in Asus Ares II I suspect it was clocked higher as it came with 3x8 pin connectors.

*Edit* I have watercooling btw.

Real 4K single gaming card is almost here! So excited for this and even Nvidia's Titan Z. Just need the consumer versions to come down in price a bit along with 4K screens to push it into mainstream.

I can wait until end of the year or next year to upgrade.

Full fledged rather than fully fetched?

Anyway with the bloated prices and Maxwell being delayed by like 3 years, I don't want to know the price on this thing.

With my advanced math and paint skills I was able to determine a very accurate length of about 31Xmm.

By the way, dat design.

375w TDP? How the hell will this draw only 375w when a single 290x draws almost 300w. Even for speculation that assumption that this card will have only 375w tdp is seriously weak.

Looks great, but that damn radiator wouldn't fit in my CM Storm Trooper case since I already have a H100 in push pull config, maybe if I'd put one fan on the outside but still this card's radiator is so damn thick.

first of all, im thinking this might be an April Fools post, that PCB length is insane. Would that fit in anything outside of a torture rack / test bench? I have my doubts

if that is a genuine pic and those prices are accurate, then this is clearly being marketed to coin miners. no one in their right mind would buy one of those in place of 2 regular 290x's. the cooling will most likely be even more insufficient than the reference coolers on the single cards, and it costs more than 2 x 290x cards. the only place that this card would be a viable solution is if you do not have a spare PCI-e slot for a second card or you are mining and want 3 or 4 of these beasts running simultaneously.

oh and i forgot that there will be the people wanting them for e-peen purposes too, but at that price i'd be hesitant to buy one even for the e-peen

i love that AMD are still trying to compete with nVidia, but i have a feeling this product will not sell very well
