ASUS Radeon R9 295X2 revealed along with specs

ASUS Radeon R9 295X2 revealed along with specs The much-anticipated Radeon R9 295X2 'Vesuvius' has been unveiled in leaked press images, along with its specs.
Built first by Asus, the 295X2 features two Hawaii XT cores with GCN 1.1 architecture, with the GPUs featuring 2816 x 2 stream processors, 176 x 2 texture mapping units and 64 x 2 Raster Operators.

The GPUs each have 4GB GDDR5 RAM, totaling an impressive 8GB of GDDR5 running a "512B X 2 memory bus that is clocked at 1250 MHz effective clock speed."

As far as display outlets go, there are four Display Ports and a DVI port. 4K and multiple monitors should certainly not be an issue with the card.

To cool the beast, AMD has begun using their Project Hydra hybrid cooling system. The card has a 120mm radiator that must be installed into your PC with two fans that lead to two 38cm coolant pipes.

DVI-HDMI dongles aren't exactly expensive if you can afford a graphics card like that. If you're running multiple displays, presumably they intend one to be displayport.

Sound doesn't transmit over DVI so that idea is lame and impractical.

Now.....I'm sure the dongle for DP to HDMI is available for like 20 bucks. I just hate DP.......proprietary junk!

I hope this dose 4K cuda cores or it won't be worth while!

Yeah, I know they aren't expensive, but for a top end card not to feature native HDMI seems like a glaring omission to me. And like Hearme0 already pointed out, no audio over DVI. If a DP to HDMI cord is supplied in the box, this will be a non-issue, since as far as I can tell, audio will be allowed to pass through this type of conversion cord.
