PowerColor Reveals R9 280X TurboDuo OC Graphics Card

PowerColor has announced its TurboDuo Radeon R9 280X graphics card, which is a factory overclocked graphics card with a fancy cooler.

The graphics card's GPU runs at a base speed of 880 MHz, while it can reach speeds of up to 1030 MHz under Boost. The memory runs at an effective speed of 6.0 GHz.

PowerColor has also fitted the card with its Gold Power Kit, which expands the VRM phases, uses DirectFETs and a Digital PWM system.

The cooler on the graphics card features a number of copper heat pipes, two 90 mm fans, as well as a large aluminum fin array. The shroud is made of a metal material.

There was no word on pricing or availability.

  • I though the term "TURBO DUO" meant that it would have TWO GPU's on one board... Just a thought, but it would be a pretty cool card if it had them, especially if it was priced at around $400 or less!! Hey, everyone is allowed to dream right? :D

    That would just be a 7990, which were at minimum $650 when they were still around, and had terrible heat (and semi-formerly, frame-pacing) problems.

    I'd dream bigger. :P
