    Asetek, the world's leading supplier of computer liquid cooling solutions, today announced that its liquid cooling technology will be used to cool AMD's latest flagship graphics card. The new AMD Radeon R9 295X2 is the world's fastest graphics card. Boasting 8 gigabytes of memory and over 11 teraflops of computing power, the AMD Radeon R9 295X2 graphics card is the undisputed graphics performance champion.

    "Today's high-end graphic cards pack insane amounts of power into a very small area and removing that heat is no small task. Utilizing our liquid cooling for graphics cards unlocks new opportunities for performance and low noise," said André Sloth Eriksen, Founder and CEO of Asetek. "The fact that AMD has chosen Asetek liquid cooling for their reference cooling design is a testament to the reliability and performance of our technology."

Users will appreciate the unobtrusive noise, low GPU and component temperatures, and blistering performance - right out of the box.

    "As the most powerful graphics card offered to date, we knew we needed an outstanding custom cooling solution for the AMD Radeon R9 295X2 graphics card," said Matt Skynner, corporate vice president and general manager, Graphics Business Unit, AMD. "Asetek's liquid cooling embodies the efficient performance, reliability and reputation we were seeking in a partner. As GPUs become more powerful, the benefits of collaborating with Asetek and integrating our world-class technologies are clear."

    I love how Asetek makes herself not look like a monopoly in computer WC components and AIO solutions, kind of the opposite of those weird small companies who claim they are the world leader in whatever.

    The biggest low profile player could be Foxconn in this kind of discipline.

    Heh, I was wondering the same. Like where else would have Amd gone to get the hybrid cooling solution?

    EK or whatever? Water cooling and desktops i am totally out of the loop but are there not several mainstream brands? I thought i have seen TPU post several.

    it looks like this is kinda like a full water block expect that they added a fan to ensure the outer areas are full cooled. The water block is over the whole card but water only flows over two points so it isn't like those EK ones. Again only my opinion. Not really up to speed on these things but it seems like a nice solution...not perfect but more than adequate. Seems like this would be able to full over clock assuming you added a larger radiator. Not sure why a full water block wasn't used. I would love to hear thoughts on this because this is just interesting to me and learning is awesome as always :) Ignorance sucks -_^

    Unlike many others, that is a completely true claim.

    Indeed it is. They are the OEM for pretty much every single AIO water cooling solution offered by gazillion of other "brands".
