Thanks for the great video and the benchmarks! It´s an impressive GPU and the competition between AMD and Nvidia is more interesting than ever. AMD´s closed loop liquid cooling system is innovative. The Radeon R9 295X2 is the fastest GPU up to date and it has a higher floating point performance than the Titan Z. I would be really curious to see some rendering demos <a class="bbcode_url" href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XISqvBVyASo" target="_blank">like the ones Nvidia presented at the GPU conference in March.</a> Titan Z has a bit more shading units and TMUs than 295X2. Taking into account the specs and price tags of the two GPUs, I think R9 295X2 is gaming-oriented and Titan Z is video-oriented (i.e. intended for professionals who work on 3D modeling, effects and animations).<br>
Titan Z is definitely too expensive for gamers, while AMD might be an option for some, like this owners club proves <img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/smile.gif"> (btw, I´m very jelly as well...) <a class="bbcode_url" href="http://versus.com/en/amd-radeon-r9-295x2-vs-nvidia-geforce-gtx-titan-z" target="_blank">Here is a comparison of the two.</a><br>
Overall, I think AMD is better taking into account the price - quality ratio. Looking forward to hear more about it!

My HIS 295x2 is now installed and running great. I guess some are you are wondering how I got a retail version this soon. Was sheer luck, <img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/smile.gif"> Newegg had the Powercolor and HIS version on the site saying "Coming Soon". Tuesday night around 9PM EST I looked and sure enough the HIS version was available. I immediately purchased it and did overnight shipping. Not sure how many Newegg had but they were sold out within 1 hour. Now in my system and running great.<br><br><b>In my opinion this is AMD's best designed reference card ever.</b><br><br>
First impressions:<br>
Very solid feel, All metal shroud. Does NOT Droop in my system<br>
The 120MM radiator/Fan installed with no problems.<br>
With full load - Very Quite<br>
The red lighted fan will add a RED glow inside of your system. I have a RED theme so great in my system.<br>
The word "RADEON" is also lighted RED.<br><br>
Currently I am at 1085 on both cores and a very healthy 1700 on the memory (Hynix Memory). Only overclocking in CCC. Both firestrike and Heaven Valley are stable at 4K resolution.<br><br>

Technically, you could put a push/pull setup on that and improve temps a little more... no?

Thought about doing just that. Running cool as is. I didn't want to extend the radiator/fan assembly more into my case.<br>
Temps are great. Low 70's even running 4K benches.

Very happy. Wonderful card. I explain in the first paragraph on the big post with pics. Was pure Luck.<br><br>
Guess I'm the first retail owner, You were the first. <img alt="thumb.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/thumb.gif"><br><br><b>Been benching the card off and on for the last 3 hours. Seems to be settling in. Running 1100 core and 1700 memory now with no issues in valley at 4K. Very solid card and the 290x GPU cores love the cooler environment. <img alt="biggrin.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/biggrin.gif"></b>

Thats a pretty monster score on that card... 18000 is a BIG number with a mild overclock... I'd like to see it about 1200 :-D
