  1. G1 comes with backplate, FTW charges extra if you wish to have backplate. FTW has higher boost and base clock. G1 is longer and it might not fit every case. FTW has dual 6 pin connectors while G1 requires 6+8 pin connectors resulting in a better OC potential. Both cards are blue-themed but G1's led can be changed with Red or Green if you wish to do so. One might say that G1 has better I/O.
  2. It's same GPU afterall, you'll get almost identical results. Maximum of 1% difference if you use both at their stock speeds.
  3. I'm no expert on this stuff and the thing I'm gonna say will sound really stupid but 980 really feels like a dumbed down version of 780Ti with 4GB VRAM. Doesn't really feel powerful and unique.
  4. Titan Z of course, not even a question. Basically 780Ti SLI with 6Gigs of VRAM.
  5. Updating score. CPU: 4670K @ 4600 GPU: R9 280X @ 1212/1752 FPS: 52.9 Score: 2214 Preset: Extreme HD Probably highest I can get. New Omega drivers and took KingCry's advices. And a slightly better OC.
  6. We're talking about benchmarking tho, not gaming 3D Mark benefits highly from both high clock speeds, higher end processors. That's what I said in my earlier post. I'm getting close to 10K physics score with an i5. Thus allowing me to score 1K more than him with an R9 280x. http://www.3dmark.com/sd/2444334 I'm kinda obsessed with the number of cores, I think they should always be a power of 2 So there is no way I'm getting a 6-core CPU. And 5960X is literally just too expensive for me.
  7. Plus higher clock speeds. If that was a 4690K running around 4.6 you would still be fine imo.
  8. Why is this type of GPUs ultra expensive at this time? Is there any people really paying 1K for those?
  9. 290X is really cheap ATM. So if price/performance ratio is everything to you, then 290X should be better in that case.
  10. Getting around 9500 physics score with 4670K@4.6GHz, it's pretty much based on your CPU not GPU.
  11. Not down yet. http://www.gameranx.com/updates/id/25510/article/amd-ups-their-game-with-major-driver-update-catalyst-omega/
  12. The specs are like this; Fan Size: 140mm Bearing Type: HDB (Hydro Dynamic Bearing) RPM: 600 -1300 RPM CFM: 89.55 CFM Max static air pressure: 2.76 mm H2O Noise Level: 22.2 dB(A) And looking at these I thought it would be a good radiator fan so I decided to change my stock H110 fans with these but I'm pretty disappointed. Don't know if I did something wrong(pretty unlikely that I did) but these fans are pretty loud even at 1000RPM compared to stock fans. And the cooling performance is not that great I think, getting 40-42C while typing these and watching stream(4670K@1.28v). Is there anyone tried to use these as radiator fans? What was your experience?
  13. Is that really true or some myth? Or maybe just for NVIDIA? I would like to see my 280X running at 1250 core
  14. CPU: i5 4670K @ 4600 GPU: R9 280X @ 1200/1750 FPS: 134.9 Score: 5645 Preset: Basic
  15. It is completely useless. There is literally no difference between fans not spinning or spinning at %25 speed in idle mode. You won't hear both.
  16. Can you believe that someone got a huge paycheck for that awful design? Ha ha. Even the name itself is ridiculous, Herculez X4 Air Boss Ultra. Might as well just add Uber Duber Vortex +100MHz Edition to it.
  17. Furmark is definitely a no-no. It puts immense amount of pressure to the card that no real world application will even come close. I never tested any of my cards with Furmark. It's better to just let Valley run 30 min loop without artifacts and other things. That's how I test stability and temps.
  18. I would actually buy one for 1K. But no more than that. It's basically 2 780Ti with 6GB VRAM on a single slot. What more do I need? LOL.
  19. AMD Advantages: Provides 3-4GB VRAM(which is something I really need) for their high end cards, cheaper, AMD fanboys NVIDIA Advantages: Got more partners in the industry, better driver support, much better utility compared to shitty CCC, NVIDIA fanboys, Overclocks much better For me the story is just like this. I ain't gonna like, if 780Ti had 4GB VRAM, I wouldn't even consider with going 290X.
  20. Why don't you just Overclock via bios or IETU? I have the same mobo I honestly didn't even install that utility because it's complete shit. Plus you should not run Prime95 when the voltage is adaptive, make it fixed first. And getting 55Celsius on Prime95 with only 212 Evo doesn't seem realistic.
  21. Is this the reason why everyone is using only AMD for folding and that kind of stuff?
  22. A small part of me dies everytime I see this fail.
  23. I think if both work at the same clock speeds, 780Ti should beat 980 in some games and especially on heaven/valley or 3D Mark(if it's not biased towards new architectures somehow). I remember Kingpin making 780Ti work at 1933MHz Core and the 3D Mark score was around 8400.(he didn't have 5960X on that test setup) Now he has 980 working at 2137MHz(204Mhz huge difference imo), and the score is around 9600. Of course it's safe to assume that 780Ti basically don't have the efficiency to go above 2100 like 980, but then again that's just for pure testing. A decent 780Ti(Kingpin-Matrix) card can get easily 1400-1500 Core like 980 on air. http://www.3dmark.com/fs/3155351 5960X@5.1GHz, 16GB 2133MHz Memory, 980@1868,2053 Score: 8391 http://www.3dmark.com/fs/3160094 5960X@5.3GHz, 16GB 2133MHz Memory, 780Ti@1756, 2100 Score: 8733 Closes test setups and clock speeds I could find.
  24. Currently that might be true but with MFAA that story might change a little. If I had 780Ti I wouldn't actually bother with upgrading at all but for new specs it's safe to go with 980. You can't rule out the fact that it has more vram, low power consumption and new features like MFAA. But I have to add, none of the current 980 models interest me at all. If we see 980 Kingpin or 980 Matrix Platinum only then I would consider buying one.
