    Sapphire's Radeon R9 295X2 graphics card is generally available, and ships in the metal suitcase that AMD shipped its reference design card to reviewers in. The only difference? The stylish black artwork is replaced with the usual Sapphire "robotic creature" artwork, and marketing blurbs. The rest of the card sticks to AMD reference design, except a couple of stickers, of course. A dual-GPU "CrossFire on a stick" solution based on two 28 nm "Hawaii" GPUs in the same core configuration as the Radeon R9 290X, the R9 295X2 features a factory-fitted closed-loop cooling solution, and clock speeds of 1018 MHz core, and 5.00 GHz memory. The card is expected to be priced at US $1,499.

    Without the case it's probably only $1000...

    That was my 1st thought on the previous comment. I don't have an issue with the robot, but what if it was a chick :D

    I would much rather have a cheaper card in a plain cardboard box. This case is just packaging after all.

    I'd rather have a cheaper card without that hybrid air/water cooler. A dedicated waterblock and larger reservoir would do a better job for cooling.
