[Official] AMD R9 290X / 290 Owners Club - Page 1291

post #12901 of 43911
Not really. If voltage control works fine without it, all it will do is waste power at idle. Possibly help with overclocking a slight bit.

Just preordered a Gigabyte Windforce OC R9 290 to go with my soon to arrive QNIX 27" PLS monitor, resolution 2560x1440.

I'm coming from an HD5850 at 1920x1080, and I'm already very pleased with this set up, so this should be a great upgrade for me.

I thought I had read gigabyte stopped production of the windforce 290 and 290X due to problems with the cooler. You might want to look into that. You dont want to end up with a card that does not cool really well even thought you spent all that extra money for the better cooling solution.

Just found this.

"As expected cooling performance increases as flow increases. There may be a point at which high flow may hurt performance but this is not shown to be within the normal expected flow rates that users normally run."

Thanks for your input. I did read about these issues moments after I ordered my card, but luckily, there's been some case of lost in translation along the way, and it's only the 290x that's affected, and only about 30 units at that. By all accounts, the 290 is fine. Overclockers have January 17th as their eta for these cards, so fingers crossed..

Does the new afterburner fix the power limit setting on the 290/290xs?

Hi guys, the Afterburner 3.0.0 Beta 18 is ready for you to download. this version supports the control of NVIDIA and AMD graphics card, if you get the card, you may try to play it.

Change note:
• Added low-level I2C access driver for AMD Bonaire, Curacao and Hawaii graphics processors. Low-level I2C access driver provides much faster access to I2C bus than ineffective native AMD ADL I2C access interface and addresses issues with GPU clock throttling when enabling voltage monitoring on AMD RADEON R9 290 series graphics cards
• Improved AMD ADL access layer with Overdrive 6 support to provide compatibility with future AMD GPUs
• Regular and SE versions of MSI Afterburner are now merged into single installer. Added voltage control mode selection option to the “Compatibility properties” section in “General” tab. Now you can toggle between reference design, standard MSI and extended MSI voltage control modes
• Added “boost edition” / ”GHz edition” GPU type selection option for reference design AMD RADEON 7970 and AMD RADEON 7950 based graphics cards to “AMD compatibility properties” section in “General” tab
• Added GPU usage averaging algorithm for Overdrive 6 capable AMD GPUs. Now displayed GPU usage is being averaged by sliding window to smooth GPU usage artifacts occurring due to bug in AMD ADL API on AMD Sea Islands GPU family
• Added optional unified GPU usage monitoring path via D3DKMT performance counters. Power users may enable it via configuration file as a workaround to replace native vendor’s GPU usage monitoring if it is working improperly (e.g. broken GPU usage monitoring in AMD ADL API for AMD Sea Islands GPU family)
• Added “Use dedicated encoder server” option to “Videocapture” tab
• RivaTuner Statistics Server has been upgraded to version 6.0.0
• Included MSI Gaming skins

Download link:

I hope he increased the voltage max for 290X cards
post #12908 of 43911
is it worth paying an extra $100 to get 290 over the 280x?
