XFX Rolls Out its Radeon R9 290 Core Edition Graphics Card

XFX rolled out its Radeon R9 290 Core Edition graphics card (model: R9-290A-ENFC), which sticks to AMD's reference board design, and tops it up with minimal company branding. The card also sticks to AMD reference clock speeds of 948 MHz core, and 5.00 GHz memory. Based on the 28 nm "Hawaii" silicon, the Radeon R9 290 features 2,560 Graphics CoreNext stream processors, four tessellation units, 160 TMUs, 64 ROPs, and a 512-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface, holding 4 GB of memory. The R9 290 is priced at $399.

Because there is a period of time, from the card's release, until AMD allows AIBs to come-up with their own PCBs and coolers. Until then, all manufacturers use the reference PCB and heatsink/shroud.
