PowerColor Release PCS+ 290X 8GB Graphics Card

The current hot topic is certainly 8GB graphics cards, with more and more manufacturers hitting the market with revised graphics cards. The most recent addition to the party is the PowerColor PCS+ R9 290X, which now comes with 8GB instead of the standard 4GB VRAM.

The card has been designed to boost 4K performance, which is a very demanding resolution, even for current flagship hardware. The PCS+ R9 290X comes with 2816 stream processors, a core speed of 1030MHZ and a memory speed of 1375MHz (5.5Gbps effective) over a 512-bit wide memory interface.

The card has been equipped with the PowerColor Gold Power Kit, Digital PWM, PowlRstage, a Multi Phase Design and more; all of which should help improve overall performance, efficiency and clock speeds. The cooler features a triple fan design, with three 8015 fans, two sets of aluminium fins and 5 heat pipes. There is also a high quality metal back plate and shroud on fitted to the card.

Currently no details on price, but we’ll update you as soon as we know.

Thank you Guru3D for providing us with this information.
