The MSI Radeon R9-290 Gaming OC appeals on many different levels, with great looks, a near silent cooler, superb temps and plenty of performance.  Once again the Twin Frozr 4 has proved its mettle and tames the R9-290 core into a cool, calm and collected...

AMD’s R9 290 and R9 290X have been well received by the gaming community over the last couple of months, especially those partner cards featuring enhanced coolers and clock speeds. Today we look at a solution that has received special treatment...

As we said in our introduction, we've been itching to discover if the R9 290 could be unleashed with a better cooling solution than the asthmatic reference option and bring it closer to its big brother the R9 290X. MSI have stepped up by adding the R9...

At the end of February, we published a comparison test featuring Radeon R9 290(X) video cards from ASUS, Gigabyte and Sapphire. MSI and XFX, amongst others, were absent in this review. In the meantime, MSI has sent us three different models, including...

Where to start here… I suppose let's go with the positives! MSI has brought to the table another solid offering in their R9 290 Gaming 4G. It cools a lot better than reference with the their well performing Twin Frozr IV cooler strapped on top. They've...

Even going into this review I had very high expectations of the R9 290 Gaming. All of my past experiences with MSIs Gaming Series of video cards have been very good setting the bar high for this card as well. With the R9 290 Gaming, MSI didn't really...

Like the rest of MSI's gaming line, the Radeon R9 290 Gaming 4G implementation is one of the best custom Radeon R9 290 implementations on the market and performance wise, the Radeon R9 290 Gaming 4G performs as expected from a high end graphics card....

Tweak.dk redaktionen takker jer for at være klikket ind på vores seneste review, som er en dobbelt test i denne omgang. AMD kontaktede os som sagt med henblik på at få et 4K testsetup stablet på benene, og det har vi så også gjort. MSi har leveret to...

Que vaut donc cette MSI R9 290 Gaming OC lorsqu'elle est comparée à d'autres cartes ? Commençons d'abord par les performances sur un panel de 14 jeux et ce au travers de 2 définitions différentes (1080p et 1440p). Pour ce qui est du protocole, il est...

Så er det tid til at samle tankerne omkring MSI Radeon R9 290 Gaming OC Edition 4GB, og jeg må indrømme, at jeg har lidt blandede følelser omkring kortet. Men lad os starte fra en ende af. På designsiden er der absolut intet at sætte en finger på....

สวัสดีครับเพื่อนๆ วันนี้ผมได้รับอุปกรณ์จากทาง AMD Thailand ที่ทาง AMD เรียกว่า Performance Set หรือเซ็ตคอมพิวเตอร์ที่เน้นประสิทธิภาพนั่นเอง โดยในเซ็ตนั้นประกอบด้วยชิป CPU ตระกูล Vishera อย่าง AMD FX 6350 เป็น CPU ที่มี 6 คอร์ ที่ความถี่เดิมๆที่ 3.9 GHz...

Nuevamente vemos como otra tarjeta gráfica de MSI se defiende correspondientemente desde su presentación, revisión estética y técnica, y cómo no, ante un rendimiento acorde para cualquier sistema de gama alta sin dejar de lado el delicado tema de las...

I test efter test har MSI:s kylarkoncept Twin Frozr hört till något av de mest prisade lösningarna på marknaden. Med sin dubbla uppsättning fläktar och ordentliga kopparbas med tillhörande kylfläns har kylaren gång på gång levererat fina temperaturer...

Eind februari publiceerden we een vergelijkingstest met Radeon R9 290(X) videokaarten van ASUS, Gigabyte en Sapphire. Onder meer MSI en XFX mistten destijds in de review. MSI heeft inmiddels een drietal verschillende modellen gestuurd, waaronder de...

Gegenüber der letzten Version vom 6. Februar haben wir unseren R9 290(X)-Roundup um die Powercolor- und MSI-Karten auf den Seiten 16 und 17 erweitert und natürlich die Tabellen auf den restlichen Seiten ebenfalls aktualisiert.Der schlechte Kühler des...

Как и следовало ожидать, рассмотренная видеокарта представляет собой почти копию версии MSI Radeon R9 290X Gaming . Как там, так и здесь используется практически эталонный дизайн и оригинальная система охлаждения Twin Frozr IV. Чисто теоретически...
