Sapphire has revealed a new graphics card, the R9 295X2 OC. As you’ve probably already guessed, the GPUs aboard this graphics card are overclocked for greater performance. This is the first overclocked Radeon R9 295X2 graphics card from any manufacturer. The overclock makes it very clear to us that there is really no reason for this except to put the letters O and C on the card’s box.

Are you ready for it? The R9 295X2 from Sapphire is clocked at a staggering 1030 MHz. It’s very fast for a dual GPU card but when you consider that the reference frequency of the card is set at 1018 MHz, and you suddenly realize that Sapphire has only overclocked the card by a mind-boggling 12 MHz, you’re probably not as impressed.

Nonetheless, this is a great attempt from Sapphire, and note it still comes in the pretty packaging that Sapphire’s card is said to come in.

No word on pricing yet,but we don’t expect a very large premium for the overclock.
