[Various] AMD R9 295x2 Reviews - Page 16

I'd like to see how the cooler copes with no power limit in the most demanding of tests.

Still, a pretty impressive showing...except for the price.

And it doesn't throttle.

I personally don't think it takes a magic orb to know that a dual GK110 GPU with a single fan isn't going to be clocked at 1GHz to compete with the 295X2.

Well for less than $900, you can get 2 290s and Water cool them using another 300-400. OR just get 3 290s for less than $1400. OR get 2 780 Tis for 650 each and give them both Kraken G10s. All of these choices cost less and are more efficient in games. I don't mean to sound like a DB or anything, though. I would buy the 295 IF the price was more reasonable.
