AMD Radeon R9 290
The Radeon R9 290 is a GPU from AMD. This chip has a very good gaming score at 44% in our GPU benchmark.
It has a total memory bandwidth of 312 GB/s. The memory bus has a width of 512 bits.
The performance specs of the Radeon R9 290 are a raw floating-point performance of 4.85 TFLOPS : this represents the number of floating point (decimal) operations completed per second. In addition, this AMD GPU has a pixel rate of 61 Gigapixels/s, the number of pixels the GPU is capable of outputting every second. Furthermore, it has a texture fill rate of 152 Gigatexels/s, the number of pixels the GPU can renderer per second.
As for rendering API support, the Radeon R9 290 supports up to DirectX 12. In addition, in cross-platform titles, OpenGL 4.6 features are supported. Newer APIs are usually more efficient, allowing for better performance in games and better graphical effects.
The raw technical specs of the Radeon R9 290 are: 2560 total shading units (general purpose parallel cores capable of processing different aspects of the graphics pipeline), 160 texture mapping units (specialised processors for texture operations, this determines the texture rate) and 64 render output processors or units (the final step in the rendering pipeline, responsible for rasterising the image)
Power and thermals for the AMD Radeon R9 290 are a TDP (Thermal Design Power) of 275 watts. This measures the amount of heat the GPU produces when running at 100%. This isn't a measure of power consumption, but it's a good estimate.
