AMD Radeon R9 295X2 – Nuclear launch detected
Under the hood
Taking into consideration the power of the monster cores that were soldered to the PCB, the built quality could only be top notch. The first thing that got my attention were the good quality parts, from the Hynix T2C IC’s to the tantalum caps, Copper Bussmann coils and metal fets.
Each core had a 5 phase VRM, comprised of Copper Bussmann coils, ceramic and poscap caps and metal fets, controlled by the 81022 PWM. The VRM for RAM, PLL and the PLX IC were comprised of one phase, with a Copper Bussman coil, polimeric and poscap caps and two metal fets. It was obvious that AMD had made no compromise in the development of this beast.
