XFX Rolls Out R9 295X2 Core Edition Graphics Card

XFX rolled out its Radeon R9 295X2 Core Edition graphics card. A branding reserved by XFX for "reference design," the R9 295X2 Core Edition is every bit AMD's creation, barring just XFX stickers. It ships in a paperboard box. Codenamed "Vesuvius," the R9 295X2 is a dual-GPU graphics card based on a pair of 28 nm "Hawaii" GPUs, with all 2,816 stream processors, 176 TMUs, and 64 ROPs enabled on each chip; and with two 512-bit wide GDDR5 memory interfaces, holding a total of 8 GB of memory. XFX is expected to sell this card at AMD's MSRP of US $1,499.

HAHAHA others beside GPU made a good suitcase that you can be processed in case!
They could offer a copper block version and achieve one slot wide GPU which would be nice upgraded for mini moderboard, Power Mini PC .......;)

XFX will probably tell you it's part of their "green initiative" - reducing the carbon footprint for their boxed 500+W card.

Can't see a 295X2 being effectively cooled by a cardboard box. The ultimate low cost, low performance passive heatsink ? :laugh:

What's the deal XFX. Cheaping out on the extras for a $1500 card (not forget the +$125 in California sales tax for myself and other CA'ers). I agree the metal case is completely useless once you install the card. So how about throwing in some games instead.
