VisionTek Announces CryoVenom R9 290 $100 Savings Promotion

Lowest price ever offered for two weeks only on original liquid cooled graphics card and limited edition 290 LE PC gamer bundle model.

May 20, 2014, East Dundee, IL – VisionTek Products LLC, (VisionTek®), a leading manufacturer of award-winning, high-performance upgrades and accessories for PCs and Macs®, today announced a $100 savings promotion on its CryoVenom™ R9 290 and CryoVenom R9 290 LE liquid cooled graphics cards. The promotion begins today and is valid for every CryoVenom R9 290 and 290LE purchased directly from VisionTek's ecommerce portal – www.visiontekproducts.com - until June 3 or until card supplies last. VisionTek is offering the over 15% discount promotion to celebrate CryoVenom being named a Finalist in the Best New Product – Computer Hardware Category of the 2014 American Business AwardsSM.

Ideal for Liquid Cooled Experts and Novices

The CryoVenom R9 290 is the ideal competitive advantage solution for PC modding enthusiasts and gamers who have an existing liquid cooled system or those that seek a nearly Plug and Play entry into this performance upgrade. After a VisionTek Custom Shop team member hand builds the card, the FurMark Benchmark GPU stress utility is employed to put a 100% load on the CryoVenom R9 290's GPU for an extended time period to determine the optimum overclock setting. Those unique, certified overclock specifications are included on a hand-signed build sheet that are simply entered by the owner into the Catalyst™ Control Center. Each card is then extensively pressure tested to ensure leak-free cooling reliability.

Lower Operating Temperature and Near Silent Operation

The CryoVenom R9 290 provides maximum cooling performance for the GPU, RAM, and Voltage Regulation Module (VRM). Even under demanding 100% in-game usage, the card registers 125 degrees F, which is up to 38% cooler than a comparable air cooled card. Yet, unlike many air cooled graphics cards, the CryoVenom R9 290 registers just 10dB of noise...comparable to the sound level of a pin drop.

The Fastest, Coolest, Quietest Card Tested

Introduced at the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show, the CryoVenom R9 290 liquid cooled series has quickly become a top selling graphics card for gamers as well as 3D modeling and video rendering workstation users. Numerous reviews have praised the card, including calling it the "quietest, coolest, and fastest" single AMD® GPU ever tested.

  

"This promotion is an excellent opportunity to own one of the best graphics cards available on the market today at the lowest price it has ever been offered at," said Mark Bilson, Executive Vice President of VisionTek. "The $100 savings can be put towards games or even more system performance upgrades like memory or a SSD."

Finalists were chosen by more than 150 business professionals nationwide during preliminary judging in April and May. More than 150 members of several specialized judging committees will determine Stevie Award placements from among the Finalists during final judging, to take place May 13-22. Organizations as diverse as 7-Eleven, American Solar Direct, Bloomin' Brands, Cisco Systems, Google, McGladrey LLP, NASCAR, and the State of Michigan are among those recognized.

  

"The final judges have a difficult task ahead of them, to rank the Finalists, because there are so many great nominations this year," said Stevie Awards president and founder Michael Gallagher. 

  

"We're sincerely honored to be recognized by business community peers for the innovation and creativity that went into creating a product like CryoVenom," said Michael Innes, President of VisionTek.
