Club 3D Radeon R9 290 and 290X royalACE GPUs Revealed
Peter Donnell / 3 years ago
Club 3D have just announced two new entries to their royalAce range of graphics cards. As you may know, Club 3D have been using their Poker Series of graphics card classification for a while now and royalAce grade cards are top of the pack. Adding to their flagship series of graphics cards is the all new Radeon R9 290 and the R9 290X.
The new royalAce Radeon R9 290 is packed with features, with 2560 stream processors and 4GB of GDDR5 RAM packed under its triple fan cooler and a clock speed of 1040GHz, making it one of the fastest graphics cards available on the market.
The 290 may be one of the fastest, but it’s still a runt compared to the beast that is the new royalAce R9 290X. With all the settings dialled up to 11, the 290X featured 2816 stream processors, 4GB of GDDR5, a core clock speed of 1050MHz (10MHz faster than the R9 290).
Both cards are much faster than the reference Hawaii 290 and 290x designs, with custom hardware that has been tweaked and tuned to offer faster and more reliable performance.
We don’t have exact pricing at the moment, but you can expect they’ll be expensive given that they’re some of the best GPU’s around, and expect to pay a 10-20% premium over reference cards retail prices.
Thank you Club-3D for providing us with this information.
