Even back when it was a current model I only remember 1 person at the LAN running this card. This is just from me walking around looking at the rigs. So not overly scientific. All-in-all it's a pretty rare card.

Wouldn't the performance be the same as two 290X cards in CrossFire?
That's probably a lot easier to get comparisons on than the 295X2.

Ya it's kinda rare GPU I was looking up reviews and it says it outperforms 290x in crossfire because those gpu's always thermal throttle and the 295x2's cooler kept that from happening so the cores always stayed at 1080mhz i have one on the way to me that i got for a good price to drive my freesync monitor since the vega 64 card is only 10fps faster in games i figure the 295 would be alot cooler to have then a vega 64 and i got the r9 295x2 for 200 usd so cant beat that

I just have the R9 390...... Not exactly the same. I do like that it keeps up pretty good being a little old and still kicks some newer cards butts
