AMD Radeon R9 290X Hawaii GPU Final Model Pictured – Hot New Cooler Design

The AMD Radeon R9 290X Hawaii GPU is just a few hours away from launch and we have now got the latest pictures of the graphic card which show the final design by AMD. The AMD Radeon R9 290X was pictured band from the looks of it shares a similar cooler design to its smaller sibling, the Curacao Pro based R7 270 graphics card.

The Hawaii Radeon R9-290X GPU is part of the R-200 ‘Volcanic Islands’
Family which is going to make its official debut in just a few hours in
Hawaii at the AMD GPU ’14 press conference. Wednesday in Hawaii next
week. We have already heard some minor details regarding
the Hawaii Radeon R9-290X GPU that it will feature a die size larger
than Tahiti yet 30% smaller than NVIDIA’s GK110 core. It will be based
on a 28nm process and would be available to consumers in mid-October 2013.

Update – The fully enabled Hawaii die features 4 CUs (Compute Units),
each CU has 11 SMIDs which amount to 44 SMIDS results in 2816 stream
processor count, 176 Texture mapping Units, 44 Raster Operators.

Now we officially know more than that, the Radeon R9-290X features a massive die size and a 4 GB memory running across a 512-bit interface. The Radeon R9-290X is powered by 8-Pin plus 6-Pin connector configurations which denotes a 300W TDP (actual TDP is 270W) design. The VRM features 5+1+1 phase design (5 Phase Core and 1 Phase memory). The card has two DVI, HDMI and a display port to provide display output. We have almost all the details
regarding the Hawaii GPU except the clock speeds and the
core configuration which includes stream processors, texture mapping
units and raster operators. Detailed look at the specifications below:
