Sorry guys I don't think I'll be at the AMD event.

 

I'm here in Montreal on NVIDIA's dime, and it would make me feel a little uncomfortable to be doing coverage of their direct competitor during a trip like this.

 

It's one thing if NV sponsored me to be at a tradeshow like CES where the expectation is that there will be many tech products to cover, but this is not that...

Real programmers don't document, if it was hard to write, it should be hard to understand.

Send Slick, Brandon or Edzel to watch it and they can report.

the first 2 are the benchmark results for the R9 290X and GTX,respectively, for Bioshock Infinite on Ultra settings @ 4k resolution, no v-sync. post-3696-0-51711000-1382042053_thumb.jp

interestingly, they were having issues getting Display Port to do 60Hz on the 780, though benchs should be independent. pictures of set-up to follow. LTTforums telling me they're too huge to post

In the meanwhile, I'll write some of the things they told me:

They aren't competing with Titan on Price (infering not 1k and apparently all the rumours about the price are wrong.

Crossfire needs at least PCI-e 2.0 x16 at least (guess that means intel boards)... Coincidentally, can't use Thunderbolt to Xfire (like one in, one out)due to security reasons.

Observations: 780 had a lot of screen tearing... Especially at the start. Mobos were identical, both ran from an 3.5 inch drive (not SSD). 780 rig had stock intel cooler and AMD ram whereas the ATI had an aftermarket cooler and something that looked like gamer ram. Though clocks were the same on both.

Also, 4K is GORGEOUS....

So much for my 16x/4x board...

Way to ruin some futures :)

 

7950 Crossfire until my platform change....
