PowerColor's Pair of Overclocked AMD Radeon R9 290X Graphics Cards

TUL Corporation has released two PowerColor-branded AMD Radeon R9 290X graphics cards, which are among the few that actually don't totally stick to AMD's reference specs.

The Hawaii GPU (2816 stream processors) normally runs at 1 GHz, but PowerColor's R9 290X go with 1030 MHz instead. Both of them. And by both, I mean that there is a PowerColor card with a bundled copy of Battlefield 4 and one without it. Don't think that's a freebie though. The new video board costs $550 / €550, but the game will add around $25 / €25 to the price tag.

There are 4 GB of GDDR5 VRAM installed on the black-painted newcomers, communicating with the GPU over an interface of 512 bits. The clock is of 5 GHz. 4K gaming (UHD resolution, 3840 x 2160 pixels) should be smooth and great, even on multi-monitor configurations.
