Became known for more details about the graphics card AMD Radeon R9 295 x2, about which we wrote in the reports of the Hanover CeBIT 2014. On the network published sources “live” photo and presentation slides we visible cooling system novelties code name Vesuvius and its back, and the design of hybrid cooler includes only located in the center of the fan. In addition, there are a pluggable via pipes waterblock-radiator with a 120-mm fan to help maintain a normal temperature.

12 phase power subsystem AMD Radeon R9 295 x2 comes with a pair of power PCIe with 8 pins and chokes production CPL and chips DirectFET from IR, which promises a good level of reliability. Set of cash outputs Quartet includes a mini DisplayPort 1.2, plus Dual-link DVI, and overall TDP accelerator equal to 500 watts, which presents a corresponding requirements for the system power supply.
Length AMD Radeon R9 295 x2 is 307 mm, and it takes two expansion slots, so to computer housings this graphics card requires requests.
