Few months have now passed since AMD launched its top-of-the-line graphics card: the AMD Radeon R9 290X. In fact, the Radeon Rx 200 family have since been filled with plenty of models that covered multiple segments of the market.
Except for one: a multi-GPU model, as per what we have seen before with Radeon HD 6990 and Radeon HD 7990 from previous Radeon series. That being said, that model is apparently already on its way according to the recent rumours that have been flowing around within the pipeline lately.
Called the AMD Radeon R9 295X2, this new particular card is rather different from previous dual-GPU cards from AMD as the R9 295X2 comes with a hybrid air-liquid thermal solution, complete with its own external pump. In terms of technical specifications, the AMD Radeon R9 295X2 is rumoured to carry two 28nm AMD Hawaii GPUs (the same one used in R9 290X).
This means the card will feature a total of 5,632 stream processors. Additionally, it is said to feature 8GB of GDDR5 RAM on dual 512-bit memory bus as well. It will also feature five display outputs with one Dual DVI-D and four mini-DisplayPorts.
It has also been rumoured that the Radeon R9 295X2 will be priced at around USD 1,499 (RM 4,899) which is way more affordable than the recently launched dual-GPU NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan Z. All these leaked info are really interesting indeed but as far as official information from AMD is concerned, there is this particular teaser:
