and both the 680 and 770 have a 256 bus

That would be a performance hit in what we are comparing. 256 bus even on a 4 gb card will never come close to the 512 bit bus on the 290.

you say 1 thing then you say another.
crossfired 290s is $300 more expensive than sli 670s which is cheaper than sli 770s by $200.
the memory bus comment was for your incorrect reference of an inferior memory bus on the 770.
my point is for $550 (NEW) you get better performance than $550 worth of 290(x) or 770/780 as you can only buy a SINGLE card. think about it.

Funny one should mention SLI 760 vs R9 290. Seems like the 290 isn't to far off of SLI'd 760s, and that's without Mantle!

Yeah I didn't say this "1 thing" you did. But no matter if anyone cares they can read back a few posts. You compared a single 290 to sli 770. You claim the price of 290 at $550 which is absurd as they are not that price. One more thing, the original question was asking about a 290x or 770/680. There was never any mention of sli/crossfire/already owning one card. I was simply stating how dumb it would be to buy 2 770's vs 2 290's right now.

Lol I was just looking at 290 prices....

Also, how is my comment about memory bus incorrect?? That should be your primary concern when it comes to battlefield 4 at 1440p when, as I observed on my 290x, memory usage is a consistent 3 gb. So you want the slower or faster pipeline for that?
post #22307 of 29736
Seriously if you're interested in buying a 290x,check out the marketplace here on ocn. There's a few up now for 350ish.
post #22308 of 29736
lol. yes you did say 1 thing then another. you need to go back and read what i even quoted you as saying.
and it would be dumb to sli 770s or crossfire 290s when you can get 4gb sli 670s for $550 as i said. i cant help you bought a 290x and feel you need to defend that against buying 2x 670s.
i didnt compare sli 770s to a single 290. you really should go back and reread the posts.

bluedevil, the 760 is a crap of a card carrying the x60 designation. amd needs mantle. according to 9quad his tri-fire 290x takes a dump in dx11.

editing this as posts were made before i hit submit

your comment about memory bus was incorrect as saying the 770 has a smaller memory bandwidth than the 680, as i quoted you as saying earlier when i showed you.
you really should read what others and also what you post. it would stop you from running around in circles and looking like you dont know anything.

Bond32, at 1440p with all Ultra except no MSAA and Post AA to Low, I was seeing about 2.6GB of VRAM used. That was 64-player Golmud in spectator mode (first person view). Not sure about other maps.

Edit: Lost Islands with 2xMSAA was about 2.8GB.

would going from a phenom 2 x4 970 to a x6 1090t be very beneficial for battlefield 4? I assume not really
