780ti DC2 vs r9 290x DC2?

ccaian

I know they're new cards but anyone had the oppotunity to test them or something? Cause I have the 780ti DC2 and if the r9 290x DC2 is better I want to switch.

 

NEVERMIND:

 

Found this finally:http://www.hardocp.com/article/2014/01/13/asus_r9_290x_directcu_ii_oc_overclocking_review/5#.UtwcMxCwqUk

 

Though its a reference 780ti, it still beats the 290x dc2. Sorry for wasting your time!

I dont think mantle will impact on the gap between the r9 290x and the 780ti.

Like the ASUS option, the Sapphire card performed better than the GTX 780 Ti in Bioshock Infinite and Crysis 3 while the GTX 780 Ti's only definitive victory came in Battlefield 3. In the three other games tested, the cards were so close that I'll call it a performance tie.

By that satement, I'd say a stock Sapphire Tri-X 290x beats a stock reference 780Ti. Now you could say, well it's not overclocked, but that card did get a really high overclock (1225 MHz core) -- it's just the silicon lottery at that point.

1225 core isn't hard to get on the tri-x, the problem comes more from vrm1 temps that's feeding the extra voltage. It gets hot if your pushing above 1.3-1.4v.

My stable oc involves 125mv offset at 1202 core / 50mv aux offset at 1690mem

@Paulenski I can see that being an issue, the Arctic GPU Cooler had similar issues with the reference board (which is what the Sapphire 290xs use). You'd imagine the Asus 290x would be better because of the custom board design, but pcper only called it a tie between the stock reference 780Ti (opposed the edging win the Sapphire card received).  I still think the silicon lottery plays to much in OC vs OC performance.

 

There is also price to performance... Obviously the 290x is selling for an insane price right now, but it's still worth considering.

There is no reason why you should swithc, the 780Ti is a beast of a card and beats the 290X in all most all benchmarks, unless you are talking about 4K which is another story. Also if you are doing any open CL work then there is a reason to switch over, if not then you would rather stick with the 780 Ti, it is the most powerful single GPU graphics card at the moment.
