Getting wet and wild with AMD's rare Radeon R9 290X
Riddle us this: What's even harder to find than an AMD Radeon R9 290X graphics card? The answer is a liquid cooled version, which doesn't yet exist in retail (to the best of our knowledge). Even if it did, it would probably be as hard to find as every other Radeon R9 290X part, as Litecoin miners have been hording these (and other Radeon) GPUs in hopes of cashing in on the virtual currency craze.
That said, it's only a matter of time before R9 290X cards come back in stock, and we expect to see liquid cooled versions at some point, too. PowerColor may be the one to deliver a liquid cooled R9 290X before any other company, as it's already showing off a custom version on its Facebook page in Europe.
Details are scarce, and by that we mean virtually nonexistent. PowerColor didn't say how fast the card was running, whether or not this represents an upcoming product, and if so, how much it would cost or when it would de available.
