The AMD Radeon R9 295X2 is no ordinary graphics card, it’s the flagship of the AMD army right now and feature two Hawaii 295X cores on a single PCB, for some seriously powerful dual-GPU action. The card is kept cool by a custom 120mm all-in-one water cooler and the whole thing will set you back a staggering $1500. When it comes to gaming in 4K, this is the kind of GPU you want at your disposal, but when it comes to gaming in triple monitor 4K Eyefinity, you’ll often need even more power than this.
The R9 295X2 is a very powerful card, something that has been recently demonstrated by one of AMD’s lead testers, Jason Megit. He tweeted “Testing Lichdom Battlemage at a super high resolution ;). Preparations for the next #work trip. @AMDRadeon@Xaviant” along side two pictures of a gaming PC build which was running Lichdom: Battlemage. The game is running at 11520 x 2160 pixels, that’s a 3 display Eyefinity setup using Ultra HD monitors that can push 3840 x 2160 each!
Lichdom: Battlemage is powered by the ever popular CryEngine 3, the same engine that powers the gorgeous Crysis 3. The game is available for pre-order on Steam for $19.99, so if you have a few spare UHD monitors and a R9 295X2 at your disposal, you could always give it a try for yourself. I am of course curious what the FPS was on this, as I imagine even the mighty 295X2 has trouble keeping a smooth frame rate at this resolution.
