Before we look at Sony Vegas Pro 13, let's take a look at the VisionTek R9 290, its package, and what is included. VisionTek really came through for us when we needed a video card to show the GPGPU performance increase in Vegas Pro 13.

The VisionTek R9 290 ships with a quick installation guide, a software/driver disk, and two power adapters for systems that do not have modern 6-pin or 8-pin power connectors.

By using large fans and other advanced cooling technology, you are able to hear the audio from your speakers and not your video card. VisionTek used two fans instead of one, and this allows the card to run the fans at a lower speed, which reduces noise.

Heat pipes spread the heat out to the cooling fins, so the fans can dissipate the heat faster. This also keeps the noise down.

 

On the back edge of the card are two power adapters. One is a 6-pin, and the other is an 8-pin. You have to provide power to the card.

The card uses a PCIe 2.0 or PCIe 3.0 full length slot to connect to your PC. Most modern computers ship with these.

The back of the card also plays a role in dissipating heat.

After the card is in your system, this is what you see on the back. The VisionTek R9 290 has several options; you can even connect it to your TV.
