What do you do for a living?! I'm jelly.

Guys, I'm just here to say, my 7990 is beautiful. After having been screwed in the behind by AMD for months with poor driver support for my 4870X2, it was time to lay my first love to rest and find love anew in a new 28nm architecture. and besides looking good, her performance matches. i'll do some benching uploads later from unigine and 3d mark, but the reviews really do nail it - the DX11 performance at high resolutions is awesome thanks to the huge frame buffer.

Welp, my apologies then. Let us know how high you OC those suckers. That is where they shine....I'm considering water cooling for the first time ever now.

How did you get a HD 7990 so fast?

I think it was a typo. His sig says 7970 wink.gif

Although a 7990 on water sounds pretty sexy.

Why the demo? You mean the benchmark tool? if so i have already, i've reviewed 7970 CrossfireX

Those metro 2033 numbers are disgusting compared to sli 580. In a good way! thumb.gif

Some tips I found on ATF:

Use the drivers off the AMD website here:

http://support.amd.com/us/kbarticles...00-series.aspx

- Disabling AMD overdrive in CCC can be helpful. What happens, if you're using MSI afterburner, afterburner will load first during windows startup and then CCC will load and over write your voltages/clock settings.

- Disabling ULPS in sapphire trixx is equivalent to enabling power tune +20% in CCC. Sapphire Trixx right now is more reliable than MSI afterburner.

- Sapphire trixx is an excellent utility to utilize, it gives more accurate voltages than the most recent MSI afterburner beta

- When using MSI afterburner, run it with the command line argument -xcl, then reboot to unlock gpu clocks

- Before installing your 7970, be sure to run driver sweeper after a SAFE BOOT and completely remove all prior registry traces of your last vidcard - I did this to remove traces of my 580s.

- Using a voltage monitor, sapphire trixx is more accurate on reporting GPU voltage. I think MSI afterburner still needs a bit of work in this aspect.

- If you're overclocking, set a custom fan profile in MSI afterburner or sapphire trixx. Do not use auto fan! It will not ramp up (fan speed) fast enough for overclocked GPU's most of the time. You can also use a set manual fan speed if you dont mind going full speed 100% of the time

thats all for now

Ill be sure to check that out when i get my card

Single card performance is down right impressive....To bad I can't rate my crossfire experience because the stupid crap isnt working. This is bs man, I may just run the one card on my 1920x1200 monitor instead. I also have a 2560x1400 Samsung btw, but it's useless to game without a dual card setup.
