AMD Radeon™ R9 295X2 Graphics

​Engineered for ultimate performance

The AMD Radeon™ R9 295X2 graphics card is the world’s fastest, period.1 A mammoth eight gigabytes of memory and more than 11.5 teraflops of computing power help this card do what it was built to do: be the undisputed graphics champion.

Two AMD Radeon™ R9 series GPUs

When you’re holding all the cards, it only makes sense to double down. We took two of our most advanced, Mantle technology-enabled GPUs and put them together in one cohesive unit. Don’t bet against it.

Factory-fitted liquid cooling system

In an industry first, the AMD Radeon™ R9 295X2 graphics card reference design ships with an advanced closed-loop liquid cooling system developed jointly with Asetek.  Enjoy cool temperatures, quiet operation and consistently high performance, right out of the box.

All metal construction

Built from striking powder coated aluminum, this GPU is beautiful to behold. It’s built to our highest standards, and it sends a message that’s loud and clear: this is serious hardware.

Mantle technology2

There’s optimization, and then there’s Mantle technology. Games enabled with Mantle speak the language of Graphics Core Next to unlock revolutionary performance and image quality.

AMD TrueAudio technology3

Technology that puts the magic of surround sound into every headset and helps give sound engineers the freedom to innovate in ways they’ve never had before. This is what the future of PC gaming sounds like.

Ultra resolution powerhouse

For some gamers, having enough isn’t the point. For them, overkill is merely a starting point. That means extreme resolutions, multiple monitors and sliders to the max. Run ultra settings in 4K with impunity. Or get two million pixels more than 4K by combining five HD screens in an AMD Eyefinity technology setup.4 Either way, the AMD Radeon R9 295X2 barely breaks a sweat.

Specifications

When developing technology at this level, we know it’s the numbers that count, so here are the headline figures:

  • 11.5 TFLOPS
  • 5632 stream processors
  • 8GB memory
  • 512-bit memory interface x 2
  • Dual liquid-cooled AMD Radeon™ GPUs
  • Asetek closed-loop liquid cooling

AMD Launches World’s Fastest Graphics Card

AMD Radeon R9 295X2 Graphics Card, Engineered for Ultimate Speed and Performance, Enables 4K Gaming at Max Settings for Extreme PC Gaming
SUNNYVALE, CA — (Marketwired) — 04/08/14 — AMD (NYSE: AMD) today launched the world’s fastest and most powerful graphics card1, AMD Radeon™ R9 295X2, designed for ultra-enthusiasts at the apex of PC gaming. Joining two AMD Radeon™ R9 Series GPUs in one card design, AMD Radeon R9 295X2 manhandles today’s and tomorrow’s games in maximum settings at 4K resolution2.

“AMD is thrilled to launch the AMD Radeon™ R9 295X2 graphics card, built on the same award-winning Graphics Core Next (GCN) architecture that powers the gaming industry,” said Matt Skynner, corporate vice president and general manager, Graphics Business Unit, AMD. “This record-shattering dual-GPU card will enable industry-leading audio and visually stunning 4K gaming, proving once again that Radeon™ is gaming.”

Heralding an industry first, the AMD Radeon R9 295X2 graphics card comes equipped with an advanced closed-loop, pre-assembled and maintenance-free liquid cooling system. Developed jointly with Asetek, a leading provider and designer of PC liquid cooling solutions, users can expect cool temperatures, quiet operation and consistent performance from the AMD Radeon R9 295X2 graphics card right out of the box.

“Asetek is proud to collaborate with AMD to provide an outstanding cooling solution for a truly cutting-edge and groundbreaking graphics card,” said Andre Eriksen, CEO and founder, Asetek. “With our custom fitted liquid cooling technology, the AMD Radeon R9 295X2 graphics card delivers quiet powerful performance.”

Thanks to its Graphics Core Next (GCN) architecture, the AMD Radeon R9 295X2 graphics card offers the ultimate opportunity to experience high-performance gaming with Mantle3. With Mantle, gamers have access to the world’s only currently available and proven low-overhead API.

A new level of audio immersion is made possible by AMD TrueAudio technology4, which brings surround sound to any stereo headset. With a dedicated audio processor on the GPUs, the AMD Radeon R9 295X2 graphics card delivers a richer and deeply immersive soundscape for an unparalleled PC gaming experience.

Along with sound, the AMD Radeon R9 295X2 graphics card sets the bar for visual experiences on current and upcoming PC titles, effortlessly handling high-resolution, multi-monitor configurations with AMD Eyefinity technology5.

The AMD Radeon R9 295X2 graphics card will be available later this month at a starting price of $1499 USD and EUR 1099 (excluding VAT)6.

1 In a 3DMark Fire Strike benchmark test in 1080p, the AMD Radeon™ R9 295X2 outperforms the Titan Black, Nvidia’s highest performing graphics card as of March 12, 2014, by a score of 15,862 to 9,878 in the Performance preset, and 8,764 to 4,725 using the Extreme preset. Test system: Intel i7 4960X CPU, 16GB memory, Nvidia driver 334.89, AMD Catalyst driver 14.10 and Windows 8.1. GRDT-36
2 Requires 4K display and content. Supported resolution varies by GPU model and board design; confirm specifications with manufacturer before purchase.
3 Application support for Mantle is required.
4 AMD TrueAudio technology is offered on select AMD Radeon™ R9 and R7 200 Series GPUs and is designed to improve acoustic realism. Requires an enabled game or application. Not all audio equipment supports all audio effects; additional audio equipment may be required for some audio effects. Not all products feature all technologies-check with your component or system manufacturer for specific capabilities.
5 AMD Eyefinity technology supports multiple monitors on an enabled graphics card. Supported display quantity, type and resolution vary by model and board design; confirm specifications with manufacturer before purchase. To enable more than two displays, or multiple displays from a single output, additional hardware such as DisplayPort™-ready monitors or DisplayPort 1.2 MST-enabled hubs may be required. A maximum of two active adapters is recommended for consumer systems. See www.amd.com/eyefinityfaq for full details.
