Radeon R9 290X compatibility review

Overall, the AMD Radeon R9 290X has exceptional performance. The levels of performance that can be reached with this graphics card are in fact far and beyond the acceptable ranges when running the latest applications and games. This graphics card is now over 5 years old, which means it is extremely out of date and is based on very aged technologies. The level of driver support currently available is excellent, so manufacturer updates will undoubtedly accommodate new games with specific optimizations and allow for a long lifespan as part of a new gaming PC build.

With an effective SPU count of 2394, the AMD Radeon R9 290X processes shading and special graphical effects with no trouble at all. The GPU is extremely power-hungry at 290 Watts, however.
