It’s been a while since we’ve had an XFX GPU crossing our test bench but today we have the XFX R9 290 Double Dissipation boasting 2560 Stream Processors 160 Texture Units and 64 ROPS. The Core speed of 947MHz on the XFX R9 290 with a full 4GB of GDDR5 with a highway wide bus of 512-Bit this monster can shred 4.9 TFLOPS. The core on the XFX R9 290 is built on the 28nm process and is a Hawaii Pro Graphics processor, the Hawaii graphics processor is a large chip with a die area of 438 mm² and 6,200 million transistors.
While the GTX 960 has been all the rage in the news its narrow 128 bit bus has been an impediment in acceptance with GPU enthusiasts. Well if the narrow 128 bit bus put’s you off the XFX R9 290 DD might be a good choice for you. The full 4GB of GDDR5 with a 512-bit bus on the XFX R9 290 DD doesn’t hurt our feelings at all. Games are starting to demand a full 4 GB of memory and the XFX R9 290 DD offers that at an affordable enthusiast friendly price of $279.99.
