Radeon R9 290 Series Double Dissipation Released By XFX

XFX rolled out its first non-reference design Radeon R9 290 series graphics cards, the Radeon R9 290X Double Dissipation (model: R9-290X-EDFD), and the R9 290 Double Dissipation (model: R9-290A-EDFD).

Both Radeon R9 290X DD and R9 290 DD look exactly the same. The difference lays under the clocks, the difference is also quite disappointing as most would think. XFX did not overclock these cards, so they come with default clocks: 947 and 1000 MHz. The cards however are fully custom-built. They feature something known as XFactor, which stands for Solid Capacitors, Ferrite Core Chokes and Dust-Free IP-5X Fan. At this point we don’t know how modified is the board of these cards (I expect PCB to be the same for both Hawaii PRO and XT).

XFX also released a teaser with an illuminating logo. I’m not sure if this is actually a new feature, because XFX does not mention that in their overview, but it does look different than R9 280X cooling system so this has to be a glowing thing.

Unfortunately XFX equipped both cards with default power connectors (6+8pin). No price and availability date were mentioned. Personally I think this is one of the best looking R9 290X on the market, so it’s definitely worth a wait.

Thank you VideoCardz for providing us with this information
