Check out these quotes from Gigabyte Radeon R9 290X OC WindForce reviews & previews
"Gigabyte have successfully tamed the beast that is the R9 290X and what a beast it is. In every way – noise, performance and temperatures – Gigabyte’s R9 290X WindForce OC offers a significant improvement over the reference design. If you’re in the market for an R9 290X then you’d be bonkers to even consider a reference design graphics card now that non-reference solutions are here. We are excited to see the R9 290X finally reach its full potential and fully recommend their WindForce OC R9 290X. It’s a great card and if you’re in the market for an R9 290X it is definitely worth a strong consideration."
"The Gigabyte R9 290X WindForce 3X OC edition is a product that I'd happily insert into my PC. It offers raw brute performance and remains to be extremely quiet in it's default BIOS mode. Now I do want to make one remark, the R9-290X GPU will ooze out a lot of heat and that heat needs to go somewhere. The cooler will suck up that heat and release it. Unfortunately that heat is exhausted mostly inside the PC. So you do need to get your ventilation inside the chassis right, meaning you will need at least two fans active in a push-pull configuration."
"When price is set aside we’re left with one of the best R9 290X cards currently available. The WindForce OC can achieve consistent clock speeds, includes a respectable overclocking suite, one-ups the competition by utilizing an enhanced component layout and remains whisper quiet regardless of what’s thrown at it. What's not to like?"
"The prolonged wait for custom R9 290X cards has, we feel, taken away some of the lustre surrounding AMD's finest GPU. Gigabyte's WindForce OC proves that the very best Radeon can be made to run cooler and faster, and the firm's triple-fan solution remains a safe bet, but more needs to be done to ramp-up retail availability and, in turn, push pricing back down to a more agreeable level."
"A mighty challenger for Sapphire. The Gigabyte card is quieter out of the box, but runs a little hotter."
