8 GB XFX Radeon R9 290X Graphics Card Spotted

/ 2 years ago


Eager to get your graphics card loving hands on more VRAM? Then check out one of the first 8GB R9 290X graphics cards from XFX! We’ve already heard that Sapphire, MSI and PowerColor are working on similar hardware, but the more manufacturers giving their hardware a VRAM boost, the better.

Images have leaked that show the popular XFX R9 290X sporting an 8GB sticker. It still looks like the previous card, with their lovely Ghost2 cooler, but with double the amount of VRAM of the old model. This is good news for those pushing for better 4K performance levels and should reap huge rewards for those running multi-GPU configurations.


Are you excited about 8GB cards, or are you currently happy with a 4GB (or less) GPU?

Thank you VideoCardz for providing us with this information.

    We’re rapidly approaching the point when my GPU will have more VRAM than my system has RAM. I guess I need to upgrade my RAM!
