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.
