Was officially launched late last year. It's been several months since we started seeing such video cards Cooling
Advanced and unique printed board design.
The core of Hawaii
Hawaii is the code name for the new graphics core AMD
. It is manufactured in the 28 nanometer process in the plant TSMC
In Taiwan. Hawaii is Core
Graphite, where the building materials are quite old in the hardware market and have existed in the market since January 2012 Radeon HD 7970
. In building materials, the intention is to the internal processing elements.
Of those internal elements has built AMD Core
New graphics, larger and richer in processors to produce higher graphics processing power. Thus, the maximum amount of internal processors increased from 2048 (as inHD 7970
Which exist today inR9 290X
, The most powerful single-core video card AMD
Radeon R9 290 Devoid ofXHe 's little brother R9 290X Which is similar in every feature except the number of internal processors. To create separation of processing power, the boat AMD Four processing groups within the graphics core, reducing the number of processing groups from 44 to 40, and the number of internal processors from 2816 to 2560.
Except for the number of processing units, video card Radeon R9 290

Of 4 gigabytes. Core graphics core operating frequency Radeon R9 290
Is 947 MHz.
In this review I will diagnose the video card of MSI
sample Radeon R9 290 Gaming
That comes with Cooling
Advanced, different printed circuit board and frequency Core
Of 1007 MHz, an addition of 60 MHz over the default.
Radeon R9 290 Standard from one of the manufacturers is sold today at NIS 2200. At this price you will also find the sample video card GeForce GTX 780 של NVIDIA.
