[WCC] AMD Hawaii R9-290X GPU Benchmark Results Exposed–Fastest GPU On the Planet - Page 28  

post #271 of 674
If the price of $599 is true, and the performance is also true....

Will AMD fans say that you can get 2 7970's and outperform it, for the same price?

Will they also complain about the 100% markup from a 7970, while it's not delivering 100% better performance?

How has no one brought this up yet? wink.gif

We'll know for sure soon enough.
Remember how AMD started this race of higher prices, first 7970 shouldn't be launched at 550 $, maybe we see a new standar prices over 650 $, leaked prices never hit the exact price, always result to be 50 or 100$ over it.

What was the AMD's statement -"we aren't competing in the ultra enthusiast market", all about if this thing is going to beat the Titan? Makes me a bit skeptic about these alleged results.

I expected a card in between the 780/titan.
seems that is a bit better if this data holds up.

A single gpu will always be better than running two gpus, no mather how good are the drivers and how good is the scaling and performance optimized. And seeing how the new card has 4GBs of VRAM and 512-bit bus width and it performs exceptionally well at 1440P with filtrations on, it should be an obvious choice over running a crossfire setup with older slower performance cards, especially if one plans on running higher res like 1440P or an eyefinity setup.

I'm not exactly sure that it'll be priced at $599, though I really hope it is. Even if it's at $649 it's still way better than charging $1k for a Titan like Nvidia did. And usually the prices slightly drop after the first few weeks of release, so we'll see. Nothing is certain yet.

I start to wonder if people don't read, can't read or they can't and don't understand what they are reading. AMD said they are not planning on releasing a GPU that costs $1k like the Titan, because that is the "ultra enthusiast market", not that they won't make a higher performaning card than the Titan. So their statement is price-wise not performance-wise. In other words they won't release an $1k card, not that they won't release a card that performs like an overpriced $1k card for less... rolleyes.gif

To be honest most not all Nvidia elitists bash without good reason there is only one thing I dislike more than Nvidia fanboys and that is Intel fanboys that use Cinebench to compare Intel to AMD.
Can't handle the fact that under optimized benchmarks they're being destroyed. (nevertheless my next rig will be Intel simply because they hold performance crown and have a smaller process node)

Seems reasonable, now that we know this has a 512-bit bus. My initial reaction was that a 512 bus was impossible because AMD just wouldn't release a chip large enough to perform enough to utilize a memory bus this size (which would then make it even larger, right?)
Then when we found out it was true I felt it was a waste of space but, I really don't think AMD would make the move unless it was truly worthwhile. It's been a long time since we've seen a true engineering failure from AMD, despite creating new architectures from the ground-up over and over. Say what you want about their driver team, but their engineers have been pretty solid. Not just that, but they've been working with GCN for a long time and this is probably the longest they've ever had to play with an architecture without completely starting over. I'm sure they made the decision to use a 512-bit bus with confidence.

So, yeah, I think these are legitimate results. Nothing else would really make sense.

It's fine as long as it's AMD doing but not for NVIDIA.

I think it's legit, I mean you are only talking 3 fps faster than a Titan in one of those comparisons, honestly that is not that much, and seeing as how a 780 can be OC'd easy to match a Titan, if the 9970 or w.e its called can't be OC'd much if any... really imo the 780 still wins. dat 1.3v mod on water mmm sex.

How can you buy 90% of your titans used that can only be done if you buy 9 used and 1 retail certainly not what most people do.
One would be 100/75/50/25% depending on how much you run
2 would be 100/66.6/50
3 would be 100/75
4 would be 100

I get your point but it came out a bit wrong.
