The card will have a GPU frequency of 1080 MHz (80 MHz over reference) and the memory will be running at speeds of 5.64 GHz (effective). Other features of the card include a pretty sleek backplate, a Sapphire logo that lights up and even changes colors and dual BIOS support. Is this the Radeon R9 290X that you want? Read on as we take a look…
