Just hurts the brain reading it....


RIG: Asus Z97-K /w i5 4690 Bclk @106.9Mhz * x39 = 4.17Ghz, 8GB of 1866Mhz 11-11-11 @ 2280Mhz 11-12-12, Gigabyte R9-290 Windforce 3 @ 1175Mhz/1565Mhz

Depends on your definition of 'can do most games'. I like 60fps and over with max or at lest very high details and preferably some form of AA.


I get 50fps in BF3 at ultra max AA so that and Crysis 3 (can only run on high because its only 2GB) are the only games I have encountered so far that give me trouble. Of course new games like star citizen or poorly optimized titles will do worae

I guess we'll have to wait until release day to see what kind of performance the 290x has under Linux. For once AMD is ahead of Nvidia for support of the 3.12 kernel. At least for now.

 

But as for me I would like to see a sku with a waterblock already attached.

Perhaps some of you guys skipped this:

I think the specs/benchmarks have already been posted so I'll just post some observations and other info I got from the AMD guys.
 
- The 290X was MUCH smoother than the GTX 780 (The GTX780 was tearing like a mofo in Bioshock Infinite, painful to watch...)
- The 290X has a "UBER-mode" switch on the side which he couldn't tell more about because of NDA
- 280X is still Tahiti but it's a "completely new ASIC"
- Never Settle will not be bundled with R7/R9 series at launch but will be eventually. It will still be bundled with 7970, etc
- The 290X was surprisingly very quiet and looks amazing (much better than GTX780 IMO, I love black)
- 290X is HDMI 1.4 (not 2.0, so it's limited to 30Hz @ 4K on HDMI)
- NDA lifting this month "for sure"
- They are testing some BETA drivers with 12K (3 x 4K) eyefinity support which they will be releasing soon
- He would not let me run GPUz... 
- Very disappointed by 4K, expected a lot more. Not worth it IMO
 
I have some pics but they are very blurry, I can dump them in an imgur album if you guys really want to see them.
 
Here are the pictures: AMD 290X event Montreal - Imgur
 
Just noticed why the GTX 780 was tearing so much when looking at the pictures: Minimum FPS
 
Bioshock Inifinite Benchmark
 
290X
 
Min: 33.0 FPS
AVG: 43.3 FPS
Max: 56.6 FPS
 
GTX 780
 
Min: 9.89 FPS
Avg: 39.49 FPS
Max: 59.21 FPS

It's weird considering Bioshock tends to favor NVIDIA and Tomb Raider AMD. He couldn't reveal the price but he did tell me we'd be ''extremely happy'' about it. Considering it's aiming to compete with the 780, I wouldn't be surprised to see it priced lower.
 
-He didn't tell me Never Settle bundles will be eventually included with the R series, he simply told me people love bundles and it's a great incentive to buy so they'll definitely try to have some in the future.
 
-The Sharp monitors were both 4K 60HZ and 30''. They looked good but not nearly enough to justify their ridiculous price tags of 3,000$+. 4K doesn't look that much better than 1600p at that screen size but that's probably due to the screen being too small to display UHD in its full glory. Still, for those who absolutely want a 4K 27'', you'll be disappointed.
 
-290X is designed to run at 95c so it'll get hot but it won't throttle nor get damaged by this. This is the target they're aiming for. The GPU will run really hot but will still be stable.
 
-Mantle will be strictly up to the developers to use or not to use. They apparently have some big name players in the field who will use Mantle. Dice is the first big one but expect to see more in the near future. Mantle is what everyone say it is. It brings a console-like development environment to the PC. I wouldn't hold my breath for 20% better performance. I would however expect much smoother and better ports.
 
-The tech demo showing Ruby with the not so great TressFX had around 23 different effects designed by AMD and it was just a beta. A finished version will apparently look much better.
 
-CPU's running on both systems were i7-3960X.
 
-The AMD rep said he saw the rumors about the pricing online and the most widely accepted prices are ''completely wrong''.
 
-He couldn't reveal anything about the specs. No GPU-Z. Nothing. Just the cards as is.
 
- I attempted to get the price out of him by first asking how much the monitors were worth and then by asking how much the whole system was worth. He didn't bite.
 

 

 

95c? Wow. Hopefully there are waterblocks out quickly. That is crazy hot.

The uber mode switch bothers me a little bit.

Like it suggests that the card consumes too much power or becomes too noisy at those clocks, so it's lower by default...

 

Like when AMD released bulldozer CPUs, they couldn't ramp up the clockspeeds because power consumption would become ridiculous.

I personally could care less about power consumption, Honestly My EVGA NEX SuperNova 1500w PSU needs a bit of a challenge.

What the hell are you on about?

I wouldn't pay much attention to him, he's been constantly making " OH NVIDIA drivers are SOOO MUCH better than AMD drivers" comments on almost every thread he comments on.

Ya I couldn't make sense of that so I just left it.

bathsalts like dem chinese zombies.

You missed my point.

Amd drivers are fine as long as you have fast single thread I.e. intel cpu.

But nvidia uses more threads @Kuzma thanks to which amd CPUs work better with it even tho they have slower single thread.

IMO, they need to compare with it 1 Tier lower Nvidia card like GTX760 instead of GTX770.

Gonna ask one of the people from pclab to do so, maybe they'll perform these tests for us.

That is not true at all, AMD GPU's work better on both Intel and AMD CPU's, i ahd nVidia GPU with AMD CPU and it was painful experience, soon i moved to AMD GPU, everything is smoother.

This is 100% true ^_^ , AMD need to sort out their drivers in that aspect XD they're essentially competing with themselves making an AMD/Intel vs AMD/Nvidia build the competition instead of AMD/AMD vs Intel/Nvidia as we've come to know

Too many factors to accept your opinion...

 

What GPU did you have at the time?

 

What CPU did you have at the time?

 

You know, Nvidia made their drivers multithreaded around the time Fermi architecture came out, and if your CPU was dual core then YES, Nvidia works bad with dual cores because Nvidia drivers are written for more threads.

Both Dual and 4 cores CPU's, different sorts of GPU's, and there are quite a bit of factors, but in general, i had 0 problems with AMD, while having tons of problems with nVidia, stutters etc., however, i didn't had any problem with both nVidia and AMD like BSOD's, artifacts, locking up, etc. Only one GPU died on me, and it was 8800GT (one of the worst GPU's i had my hands on).

 

In short, i just stated that is complete nonsense to say that nVidia have better drivers, in my opinion and experience, it don't, it is even contrary. It is true however, that in few games, similar GPU's did pushed more FPS (even on AMD CPU) with nVida GPU, however, it didn't felt as smooth as it was on AMD GPU's with less FPS (again mine experience on few different cases). Rest of the games was pretty even in terms of FPS.

It may be über but I guess it sounds like an A380 starting when in uber mode.

A380 isn't that loud..... its actually quiet for a plane of its size. Look at the 707 THAT is something Loud
