TRENDING NOW: AMD's dual Fiji chip spotted as Radeon R9 Gemini, is this the Fury X2?

AMD's dual Radeon R9 290X rumored to launch very soon

AMD's dual Hawaii XT GPU will reportedly launch imminently, how would dual Radeon R9 290Xs run? (NYSE:AMD)

All the way back in November last year, we reported on AMD building a dual Hawaii XT GPU - the same core used on its flagship Radeon R9 290X... but this new video card would feature two of those Hawaii XT cores.




The dual Radeon R9 290X became a little more real this week, with a tease of the ARES III GPU by ASUS. ASUS' ARES line of GPUs is its dual-GPU video cards, some of the most respected and most-wanted GPUs on the market. Talking specs, the dual Radeon R9 290X card would feature three 8-pin PCI-E power connectors, with a massive 500W TDP.


We should see 8GB of RAM total, 4GB per GPU. Personally, I think the 4GB limitation is going to be the letdown on a dual Radeon R9 290X card, as SAPPHIRE has teased a beautiful Radeon R9 290X VAPOR-X which features 8GB of RAM, on a single GPU.
