Why is that the only cards that are crap on that list are the 690's(gimped kepler cores GK104) 670(gimped kepler and can't utilize the 4GB since there is no horsepower) and the 590 (unable to overclock) "epicfail"

My list looks similar.

You have over 2K dollars in gpus, and you cheap out on cpu, 39xx is the correct cpu for that configuration, i would rather have 2x sli then 3x sli with cpu which holding me back, doesen't matter if its 10% its still does, like you can see in Crysis 3 benchmarks which is game i'm sure you play.

Also i got single gpu, and i dont' play games lately why would i need i7? your just getting way much defensive about this. Also e-peen? you got 780 3x sli, no logic again to talk about it.

Yes you don't need the biggest cpu to game for single gpu, for 3x you NEED.


Few games take advantage of the extra threads that come w/ the most of the i7s. And if they do, its not a huge difference. BF3 is one of them but I hardly play that.

If my lowly 2700k can match a 3930k and my 4670K is better then my 2700k, what does that tell you? Your assumption is not valid. You conclude this because most reviews and highend multi gpu setups use a top of the line cpu. When it comes to gaming, especially surround gaming, the gpu is most important. The cpu just has to ensure its not creating a road block (ie bottle neck). Heck, I can run at 4.5 and still prevent a bottle neck. So far, I know anything below 4.4 will slow down my gpu(s) but above that, it won't hold them back. With the 2700K, there was never once a difference running 4.7 from 5.0 in Surround. Changing gpu did on the other hand and that's why I kept my lowly SB for a while. Haswell change was to finally move on to pcie 3.0 and I happened to adore the Sniper5 Z87 board.

If you're not sure about this, go to the Surround thread. We have members running 920s w/ two or three Titans. We have guys running SB cpu w/ triple 1440 monitors.


Maybe, down the road, extra threads and cores will be an advantage but as it stands now, I'm right up there w/ the big cpu(s). Heck, this chip might easily push beyond 5.0. And it was cheap! Can't argue with that? Proof is in the pudding, kinda of hard to believe a little cpu can do that? Just look at your SB i5 wink.gif



Btw, calling someone out for their hardware, you're looking to pick a fight. I can easily pick apart your rig(s) and criticize them but I'm not here for that.

Guys, don't start a fight in here. It's getting quite tiring to see everday now.

The 290X should do well against nVidias offerings at a better price.

Btw, did you get demoted? Last time I saw you your name is not dark green ph34r-smiley.gif

Nice avatar though

Yeah, some of the gpu(s) weren't great on paper but they were pretty good overall, especially in Surround. I guess its method of just taste testing if you will. Comes to show how imperfect both Nvidia and Amd are. Hence why I wouldn't hesitate to go with Hawaii if it turns out to be epic.

cheers.gif Its a bit Nvidia leaning but that's because of the tremendous amount of software headaches w/ Amd. I like Amd cards so I really don't have an alligiance to one. Its just that Nvidia has a more stable (albeit expensive) product. Come on Hawaii, me wants more specs!!!!!!!

So since the NDA wont be dropping for the preorder its safe to assume these cards wont be had till late October

Seeing all the leaked pics, have review samples been issued yet? I'm sure reviewers will need a couple of weeks for testing.
post #430 of 1990
lol amd really hoping people pre order with 0 specs leaked, im sure the die hard amd fans will do it, but i hope those with atleast two braincells making contact dont do it.
