In this review we will benchmark and test the ASUS Radeon R9-290X Matrix Platinum edition. This Radeon R9-290X has been overhauled from A to Z. Yeah, the GPu might have remained in-tact, however the graphics card received an all custom 14-phase digital VRM based PCB, a luxurious cooler, some James Bond style gadgets for the hardcore overclockers and next to that, the product has been factory overclocked towards a nice 1050 MHz on the GPU core. Interesting stuffz we say !
The 2816 counting Shader processors based Hawaii chip is paired with a nice 4 GB GDDR5 memory running along a 512-bit memory interface. The card will clock towards 1080 MHz but is clocked at reference clocks on the GDDR5 memory. Hmmm, I just catch your attention ? Yeah I figured that much, let’s go and check ‘r out shall we ? So what does a Hawaii GPU bring into the graphics cards ?
