Also really rome 2?
Worst game ever with so many bugs and optimizations issues.
Yeah, because of installing Windows 8.1 it's the only game I've downloaded other than BF4 Beta. So far anyway.
The 7990 comes with the 8 games deal, and I have literally all but one; Crysis 3, so I'm still waiting on that code to arrive.
I know Rome 2 is terribly optimized, but my 770s ran a lot smoother. Roughly the same in the benchmark included in the game, averaging around 65 FPS, but IN ACTUAL BATTLES, my 770s were a LOT smoother and didn't drop anywhere near as much as the 7990 does.

Under load it builds up but comes and goes. A pretty high-pitched whine. During the BF4 beta (1 of only 2 games I've played with the 7990 so far), it came and went and wasn't THAT noticeable.
I have decent headphones and soundcard so I honestly can't say how bad or frequent it really is. But it's certainly there.
The frequency fluctuates between menus. Rome 2 s the worst so far. You could create a song by changing menus or using the intro video.
I have just under 2 weeks to determine whether or not I send the card back to Amazon, sighting whatever reason I want, and getting my money back. I may lose like £20 in packaging or whatever, but oh well.
I am worried now though.
My SLI 770s were under-performing in BF3, seeing lows into the 50s, which is absurd and unnacceptable with this much power. People with SLI 660Ti's were getting better figures.
Now with this 7990 the benchmarks are showing it's running slow.
I don't know what the hell is going on. I've swapped PSUs and get the same issue. Swapped motherboard, CPU and RAM and get the same issue.
All I haven't done is test wattage levels from the wall socket, swap out a new HD/SSD (surely that won't change the problem), or take it to some kind of diagnostics store to check for hardware issues.
It can't be a coincidence that my 770s and now the 7990 were running "okay" but ultimately under-performing.
The guys at EVGA ran me through a fresh Windows 7 install to see if I had any software issues, and I still had the problem. They were dumbfounded.
Now I'm on Windows 8.1 and STILL have an issue. I've pretty much ruled out software conflicts now. I've got pretty much a bare bones install here.
Unless I'm not installing my intel chip drivers right or keep doing a retarded OC on my CPU and somehow turn on a power saving feature or something.
I'm so lost and annoyed.Edited by Dynasty2021 - 10/18/13 at 11:09am
