AMD Radeon R9 390X cooling prototype revealed

Posted on Friday, September 12 2014 @ 12:22:58 CEST by


A couple of weeks ago liquid cooling firm Asetek announced its largest ever design win for a graphics watercooling product. No exact details were revealed but Asetek mentioned that it would result in $2 million to $4 million of revenue with shipping scheduled to begin in the first half of 2015.

VideoCardz now has a picture of what Asetek was talking about: the reference cooling solution of AMD's future Radeon R9 390X graphics card:
Well as it just turns out, that deal was with AMD to design new R9 300 series cooling solution. The new cooler is almost identical to R9 295X2 (which was design by Asetek by the way). The only difference is that the middle fan has been moved to the side, as only one GPU has to be cooled down. We can even see the place where liquid loop will be connected, so it’s quite obvious now that next Radeon flagship will use hybrid cooling system, just like dual-GPU Radeon R9 295X2 does.

Whether this is a good news or not, it’s a huge progress from plastic reference cooling of R9 200 series. We just hope the decision to use liquid cooling was not dictated by high temperate of the next high-end GPU, but rather a design upgrade.
