Radeon HD 8750A 

Released February, 2013
  • 600 MHz
  • 1 GB DDR3

The Radeon R9 295X2 is a great GPU, don't get me wrong, but if I had to choose between two faster GPUs than a dual-GPU offering, I would nearly always choose the dual-GPU setup.

Both cards are going to be great for the 1080p monitor you have now, and just as good when you upgrade to a 2560x1440 display.

A New Perspective on Multi-GPU Memory Management

by Scott Michaud |
www.pcper.com
AFR is very balanced for multiple, identical GPUs, and it's easy to implement; unfortunately, it could also introduce latency and stutter, and it is inefficient with video memory.
Layer-based methods, on the other hand, are complicated to implement, especially for objects that mutually overlap, but it allows for more control in how tasks and memory are divided.
On the prototype Radeon Pro SSG the M.2 slots are actually able to be seen as drives by the system and OS so it is essentially acting as if there was a PCI-E adapter card in a slot on the motherboard holding those drives but that may not be the case should this product actually hit the market.
Several commentors mentioned using a PCI-E based SSD in a second slot on the motherboard accessed much like GPUs in CrossFire communicate now (DMA over the PCI-E bus) which is an interesting idea that I had not considered.
Alongside the launch of new Radeon Pro WX (workstation) series graphics cards, AMD teased an interesting new Radeon Pro product: the Radeon Pro SSG.
With the Radeon Pro SSG, this idea is not fully realized (it is more of a sidestep), but it will move performance further.
The tiny details of the environments being rendered will have to increase, as people will physically walk up to the walls, chairs, doors, windows and look at every single little bit with excruciating detail.
I replied saying that the personalization era has been here for a while with gamers - who will spend hours customizing their in-game character or buying hats in Team Fortress 2 or skins for their guns in CS: GO.
