hmm, still having troubles with this r9290x.
in valley it benchmarks at 2440 points thereabouts. max framerate= 140 minimum = 26 fps, i mean ***. this is at extremeHD 1920*1080 8*AA.
on an intel i7-3770 with 16GB ram system running stock speeds, xmp profile so thats 1600Mhz. with a brandnew HX650 watts from corsair.
This thing just doesnt want to run smooth. Firestrike score = 9107 , and it still drops with every new try i make with other drivers.
Asus was kind enough to update the bios via its gpu tweak tool, did it help ? No.
Screams like hell running 3dmark tests, like being tortured. and all that for the measly price of 539 euro's.
NEVER overclocked , hell,not when its like this stock.
SO ANYBODY WANT TO BUY A R9290X only tried out for 2 weeks ??
(this happens like everytime i let met myself get influenced by pressgoons, new card thats supposed to rock, only never with my normal high end system)
thats what you get when buying in stores that build and sell their own pc's i guess. those guys took the good parts and sell the bad ones off shelf to the "unsuspecting" customer.
BAH, press did its worst, the salespeople do their worst, its like GREEEEEED all over, merry christmas AMD.
can i now have a piece of R9290X that does do whats it supposed to do ???
