Anybody having any problems with video playback with these cards?

Playing MPEG video in Windows Media Player or Youtube/Flash in Firefox causes my entire system to hard lock, requiring a reboot.

We found out that using VLC Media Player on the same files lets them play fine. Using Chrome for Youtube also works fine.

It seems to be a driver or codec issue. I tried Catalyst 13.12, 13.11 beta 9.5 drivers. I installed them with all options initially but the problem persisted, so I tried installing 13.12 without the "AMD Media", "AMD Accelerated Video Transcoding" and other video related suboptions. This didn't make a difference. So it leads me to believe there is likely a codec issue.

Does anyone have a fix for this? Should I RMA my card?

I have a Sapphire 290 Tri-X.

After dropping $600 on this thing and seeing impressive performance in games, it baffles me that it cannot play simple MPEG videos without hard locking the system.

There is nothing wrong with the card or driver, most likely some conflict with the codec pack, make sure you don't use more than one.
Check you Firefox Add-ons if the flash player is updated or you can check here http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player.html

Why it's hard to believe? @Sgt Bilko live in NSW, Australia. I heard it's hot there now.

My ambient temp (indoor) currently 33C. This is typical ambient temp in Malaysia. At night it can go down to 28/29C (indoor) at which time with BF3 @80% fans, GPU temp can go as high as 70C.

BF3, ambient 28/30C, 80% fans (GPU1 & GPU2)





Can't wait to get water blocks for my cards. They're en route from Slovenia, now at Germany.

Yes it is hot, was 40c today and it's going to stay like that for the rest of the week.

really wish i had air-con tongue.gif

Hollah lords of Radeon 290's, my next upgrade shall be a pair of 290 cards, whether it be 290 or 290X.
My query is, is it worth purchasing the X over the vanilla 290, I've been doing a bit of research on performance/price.

GPU Boss results:

TLDR: 290X beats 290 by an average of 10 - 15 %

Initial outlay is:


The vanilla 290 is $180 cheaper.

Which then leads to putting both cards in my loop:


So I can get Vanilla 290 + Block + postage cheaper than:



290X no block and no postage


Is the extra 10 - 15% performance superiority/ slightly higher fpu etc etc worth it, or the fact I can OC the vanilla version to close to identical speeds and integrated into my loop the caveat?

Peace Out

Can you run Heaven 4.0 with 1.3v and 1200/6500 for 15 mins loop and fans on 75% and see your core/vrm temps?

Sorry if i asked you this already, i'm trying to find out if there is some big difference from card to card/batch to batch biggrin.gif

I couldn't do the 75% fan speed, I know the VRM will rise higher than the threshold I like it to be at. I used my custom fan profile just to play it safe. These synthetic benches put the card under way more load than any AAA game I've played (BF4 and AC4).


1202 core 125mv offset / 1650 (6600) mem aux 50mv offset

Fan Profile: 80-83% for first 9~ mins, 83-88% the last 7~ mins

Temps after 16 minutes of Heaven 4.0 Extreme 1080p Fullscreen

GPU Max: 78C (77C average)
VRM1 Max: 92C (88-90C average)
VRM2 Max: 59C

Actually the performance difference is smaller than that (5% iirc), and from having a 290x myself i really can't notice a difference between a 290 and 290x at the same speed, In gaming that is.....small diff in benching.

imho get the 290 + waterblock.......especially with all the heat down your way tongue.gif

Thanks alot for this, rep+

Yea thought so that benching loop will result in higher temps, still 90c on vrm is generally ok, a bit on a high side but still good smile.gif

What does your card have as stock volts?

I agree, I have a 290 flashed to 290 and in games there is virtually no difference between them. Use the $100 difference in price to cool the cards and overclock a 290.
