Considering the water cooling system and two GPUs, a three 8-Pin PCIe power connector setup wouldn't have been a surprise.

In The News From around the web

Pricing of this card would be much greater than the reference Radeon R9 295X2 and we can look at a $1799 – $1999 US price range.
The R9 295X2 Devil 13 features a triple slot, triple fan design with the fans measuring an massive 100mm PWM controlled fans that circulate air through a gigantic and dense aluminum fin array which features multiple heatpipes.
So for all the potential users of Vesuvius who feel their gaming experience will lack this very clear significant edge should seriously consider Sapphire’s new model.
AMD released its flagship GPU, the Radeon R9 295X2 codenamed Vesuvius around 2 weeks back.
We know some variants will retail in that metal breif case, the Sapphire R9 295X2 for example and should be priced about the same.
AMD Partners are releasing their more or less similar looking R9 295X2′s in an orderly fashion and today XFX have marked their entry with the XFX R9 295X2 ‘Core Edition.

The AMD Radeon R9 295X2 8GB Graphics Card Review

by Ryan Shrout |
Maybe more important for AMD after the headache (literal, figurative) caused by the reference release of the R9 290X and R9 290, the new Radeon R9 295X2 is able to keep all that power dissipated without raising the sound levels any more than a SINGLE GeForce GTX 780 Ti!
But at the 4K 3840x2160 resolution we find that CrossFire still has issues in DX9 titles - the large blob of black in the Frame Times graph shows us that frame pacing is still not working (and likely never will for this class of game).
