XFX R9 290X Double Dissipation Edition CrossFire Review at [H]ard|OCP
, January 26, 2014
When we look at performance versus NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 Ti SLI we also find the XFX R9 290X DD CrossFire coming out on top. This we did not expect. We figured GTX 780 Ti SLI might provide some faster performance in some cases. However, it really didn?t. When playing demanding games at high resolutions and aiming for those high in-game settings R9 290X CrossFire pulled through as the faster solution. When we cranked up AA settings, again R9 290X CrossFire pulled through. There wasn?t one scenario in our gaming experiences that GTX 780 Ti SLI was superior in gameplay experience to R9 290X CrossFire configuration from XFX.
We have a lot of good to say about the XFX R9 290X Double Dissipation Edition video cards. If we could give an award to the "best looking" video card, it would be these from XFX.

BTW I'll be joining the club in about 2 days with Sapphire R9 290X 4GB TRI-X OC Crossfire
I hope my Corsair HX1000 80 Plus can handle voltage overclocking with 2 cards, any input on that?
