PowerColor TurboDuo R9 290X

PowerColor has released two versions of the now popular Radeon R9 290X with a beefier cooler. One is the PCS+ Radeon R9 290X with a triple fan cooler that we reviewed back in January 2015. The other is the TurboDuo Radeon R9 290X. The TurboDuo R9 290X leaves the clocks at the stock 1000MHz on the core and 1250MHz on the memory. The TurboDuo features a twin fan design that should offer cooling that is substantially better than the AMD reference cooler design.

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 980 WindForce OC

7 months ago Nvidia released its latest GPU architecture with the line of GTX 900 series cards. On paper, the new GTX 980 is a bit different from the GTX 780 it replaces. The raster operations pipelines count has been increased from 48 to 64. The texture mapping units have been decreased from 192 to 128. The new card features 4GB of GDDR5 VRAM on a 256 bit bus versus the 3GB. The new CUDA core count is now 2048 versus 2304. Perhaps the biggest news is the reduction on power requirements. The new GTX 980 uses only about 65% of the power of its predecessor.

The second is the PCS+ Radeon R9 290X, which is what we will be taking a look at today. The PCS+ (Professional Cooling System) features a triple fan cooling solution.
