HIS R9 290 iPower IceQ X2 OC

The Benchmark Reviews crew seem mighty impressed with the HIS R9 290 iPower IceQ X2 OC video card they just reviewed. It probably wouldn't hurt to give this a read if you are GPU shopping.

When I first heard about the ‘Hawaii’ R9 290 and 290X GPU’s I wanted to see if AMD have what it takes to compete with NVIDIA, and really even out the playing field. Now that I have tested the R9 290 first hand I can see that AMD really mean business. The AMD Hawaii GPU’s are beating the GTX GPU’s from NVIDIA but not the Titans. AMD’s next hopes lay with their Mantle Graphics API.
