[Official] AMD R9 280X / 280 & 270X / 270 Owners Club - Page 58

post #571 of 9745
i already have the matrix platinium 7970 , that's the point , i dont want to spend 400 or 600 and ending with 2 single card that can't cf
it will be a bigger performance boost to go with matrix 7970 and toxic 280x in CF at 1200 mhz 1800 mhz , i'm pretty sure it will be really close to stock 290-290x cf and we have no idea how the 290 really perform and overclock. again from the first dubious review it seem to be overheating and consuming an insane amount of power.

i m only paying 300€ for the toxic , so it would be 50% or 100% less then the 290's , i don't think the 290 will perform 50% faster then a 7970 at 1200 and i m sure the 290x wont do twice as good ,.....

It is a good thing that the 7970 Matrix still has a good resale value thumb.gif

Save the bios with a different name(No space). So you have you original bios as backup.

Then flash using this tool.

+1 for that, thanks man, i`ll give it a shot thumb.gif

I must have had a defective unit. Funny thing is I was still benching stuff with a blown cap. O snap.
post #577 of 9745
a cap that litteraly blow is a cap that is plug with the - on the + , it can still take a while for it to blow even soldered in the wrong way , but i m surprised it would happen on this level of electronics.

i had one blow up on a home made lab psu while i was testing the pcb at the end , i had one cap the wrong way , after maibe 5 min trying to troubleshoot , the thing blow up and torn apart the resistor next to it , both 0,8 mm legs of the resistor were cut straight at the level of the pcb tongue.gif and it was a small 63 nF 23v . something like that, still bigger then the one on video card do.

309€ = $425 USD

For all intensive purposes, I'll assume you made the purchase from pccomponentes and the same site has the Sapphire R9 280X Dual-X for 269€ so you are paying a 40€ premium for the Toxic edition which equates a difference of $55 USD which is roughly equivalent to the difference in the $299 Dual-X and $359 Toxic price points observed in the States. Also, the price of the Toxic without VAT is actually 255.37€ which is roughly $352. Since the MSRP pre VAT seems to be comparible to the US prices, a $450 USD card would end up being roughly 326€ pre VAT and around 395€ with the 21% VAT. 395/309 = 1.278 which is still a 27.8% premium over the Toxic.

Comparing apples to apples helps thumb.gif

no it s a french one,materiel.net , damn i was comparing with swiss franc because im from there and i converted it 1:1 , which 2 years ago was accurate , maibe the dollar went down a bit since i dunno . around here it s the price for it anyway give 5-10 euro more or less.
i really didn't check the rate because the swiss franc use to be at 1:1 with dollar and euro-swiss franc use to be at 1:1,2

edit right the dollar went down a little since , and the euro went up. I overlooked the change that 0.1-0.2 would make but i m paid in euro atm anyway so ,...
i m paying it 408$
if you add the premium and taxe that we pay in europe , like it s often said you can take the price in usd and putr a € in front of it and you have the european price. but i forgot it didn't work the other way around biggrin.gif

This one has the clocks fluctuating between 300 and 500mhz when playing old games, which gives them poor performance. I want higher clocks with light loads.
Definitely use the BIOS that are on tech power up forum, it solved a lot of throttling issues with the gpu since the vrm was heating up, plus also the more i game with it the better it performs... kinda like breaking in a pair of shoes biggrin.gif
