A Closer Look


XFX’s R9 290X is in my opinion one of the better looking cards on the market with a subtle black exterior and white LED XFX logo.

The design is dual slot and measures in at just over 11 inches.

Power is drawn in through one 8 pin and one 6 pin, this card has a 250W TDP.

The PCB is matte black so will appeal to the masses, it looks clean and that’s always a good thing.

The bottom is opened up to allow for some ventilation from the down-blowing fans.

The end is also opened up and reveals an impressive selection of five heat pipes.

The card makes use of two 90mm fans for cooling.

The rear I/O provides dual DVI, DisplayPort and HDMI as well as the traditional XFX logo ventilation port.
