TPU picked up rumors that AMD's upcoming dual-GPU flagship graphics card may be called Radeon R9 295X2. This card is expected to feature two 28nm Hawaii GPUs clocked at no less than 1000MHz.
It also adds that AMD is working on a air+liquid (hybrid) cooling solution for the card. Its cooler will feature heatsinks with a running air flow to cool the memory, VRM, and other hot ancillary components; while two liquid cooling blocks will dissipate heat form the GPUs. This would also mean that installing the R9 295X2 won't be as simple as pushing it into a PCIe slot, fastening a couple of screws, and plugging the PSU in. ASUS attempted a similar cooling solution for its Republic of Gamers ARES II graphics card.
