British etailer Overclockers UK has listed a new Radeon R9 290X from HIS Digital.

While the clocks are not yet confirmed, we can at least have a look on what is HIS preparing for the next year (it ships in January).

The newest version of HIS IceQ X2 cooling system is painted in beige. While I cannot say I’m a fan of this mixture with a blue PCB, I have to admit, it will stand out from the rest of graphics cards on the market.

The IceQ X2 cooler has two 89mm fans, two 8mm and three 6mm heat pipes. Apart from the color not much has changed compared to R9 280X iPower IceQ X2 Turbo.

The listing on OCUK mentions 6+8pin power connectors. If that’s true then I’m really disappointed, even the 280X mentioned above has a pair of 8pins.

HIS Radeon R9 290X IceQ X2 Turbo will feature 2816 Stream Processors, 4GB of RAM and four display outputs (two DVIs, HDMI and DP).

OCUK is taking preoders for this graphics card. It’s not cheap, prepare at least £500.
