Product details

Enjoy stunning graphics performance with the Asus 4 GB AMD Radeon R9 290X PCIe Graphics Card with DirectCU II technology and a CoolTech fan.

Bring definition to your graphics

The R9290X-DC2OC-4GD5 Graphics Card has an impressive 4 GB of GDDR5 memory to help you get the best from your gaming rig. The PCIe connection delivers fast communication between your graphics card and processor, so you can expect great things.

Take your gaming up a step with AMD technology. Eyefinity technology lets you extend your desktop across up to six displays. Enjoy truly immersive gameplay with the option of deep and rich 3D content thanks to AMD HD3D technology.

Ramp up the power with CrossFire X support, letting you join compatible graphics cards for even more power.

GPU Tweak

GPU Tweak lets you fine-tune the 4 GB AMD Radeon R9 with an intelligent interface. View detailed specs about your graphics card, and sync clocks and voltages for easier overclocking to take your graphics to the very edge. It also allows you to lock your card in 3D mode for higher benchmarks and automatically checks for updates and BIOS versions.

Use this software to stream live gameplay online, complete with webcam images and scrolling text - you can create your own gaming channel to show off your skills on the battlefield.

Cool technology

The DirectCU II thermal design not only helps to keep your graphics card 20% cooler, but also performs quietly. The 10 mm copper heatpipe and large dissipation area efficiently cools the card.

The 4 GB AMD Radeon R9 290X also includes CoolTech fans, which have a hybrid blade and bearing design. This helps to direct airflow to make heat dissipation quicker, and keep your graphics card stable.

Choose your mode

The choice is yours with this graphics card – it features the BIOS switcher so you can choose how you want to use it.

Use Silent Mode to enjoy high quality gaming with low noise emission, or ramp your graphics card up to Performance Mode for fast, smooth and stable graphics.

You've got the power

DIGI+ VRM with Super Alloy Power means that your graphics card can supply you with some of the best graphics and live to tell the tale. It provides 30% less power noise, but can also help to extend the lifespan and durability of the Radeon R9 290-X.

Customised card

The AMD Radeon R9 290X PCIe Graphics Card includes red and gold metallic stickers. These easy-to-apply stickers let you match your graphics card to the colour of your motherboard so you can keep your gaming rig looking slick.

Expect nothing but the best when you use the Asus 4 GB AMD Radeon R9 290X PCIe Graphics Card.
