Does Power Target work with 14.2 V1.3 drivers because its not working for me. I tried CCC and GPU Tweak.

So now with gsync coming out for nvidia and it only working in fullscreen mode. Sli supposedly also works in windowed mode. It kinda makes x-fire seem behind. I really like the 290x, but its kinda a bummer... I guess we have freesync if and when it ever makes it out

No doubt g sync sync sounds great but I wonder about the practical impact. I want a constant 60 fps. I choose my settings accordingly and turn v sync on. Would g sync improve on this? I don't know all the technical details but I assume not.

I guess it's great if you want to go over 60 fps or avoid refresh rate stutter at below 60. That would help a lot in games where establishing a minimum 60 fps is pretty near impossible, like Metro LL.

I think I prefer the higher mem bus and more vram of the amd offerings over g sync, for now. Plus I don't want to bleed cash for a g sync display when my Korean IPS is so excellent. Especially when I run 2 of them.

Yes, SLI does also does indeed work windowed.

Not only that, but I have noticed that if you switch out of heaven benchmark to the desktop and back to heaven again, crossfire is disabled and not restored and frame-rate is cut in half.

I'm also having an issue where sound pops and cracks if vsync is enabled with crossfire.

What does unofficial overclocking mode do? And if one were to enable it which of the 2 options is better?

I'm trying to overclock my 2x gigabyte 290's they're cooled using EK wb, temps aren't going above 50deg for cores and vrms.
Current clocks im playing with are 1230 /1600, using the extra +200mV .bat file, which puts a stable 1.314 V on load or 1.41 before droop i think.
However above 1200 my clocks are throttling back to ~800-900 or one clocks at 1230 then they alternate.
Any ideas how to eliminate the down clocking, just trying to do some valley benches for now.
CCC overdrive is disabled, it shows my power limit is still at +50% and the clocks change after AB 3.0.0 Beta 18 clocks are applied.

Edit: having issues with downclocking at most voltages / clocks.

Same here. My card downclocks even with 50% Power Target. I am using 14.2. I have been asking for 2 days and nobody has a answer.

Power target is broken in 14.2

If you go back to 13.12, it works fine.

Hello everyone,

Just like to share my experience with my R9 290. Having bought one second hand (3 months oldI got hold of a MSI 290 one with the stock reference cooler, which was pretty loud and useless at cooling compared to the DCUII cooler on my 7970. It overclocked okay, with a core clock of 1050 and 1450 on the memory (hynix). However one thing that drove me up the wall was the coil wine! mad.gif first time I've ever had to deal with it, as all my previous cards since the radeon x1300 pro days never had such a thing.

Luckily the seller was a friend and helped me RMA and for a small fee I upgraded to the DCUII version of the card, having had a ASUS card since my GTX 480s and never had any issues with them. This card clocks much better as well with a core clock of 1100 and memory clock of 1475 (even though it has the supposedly inferior elpida chips) all stock volts. With a bit of voltage tweaking hoping to hit 1200 but even at 1100 all my games never go below 60 fps on max settings. I actually appreciate how these cards need some seriously good airflow in the case to keep them cool even with aftermarket coolers, had to install a fan on the case floor to blow directly on the card to keep it from going back to the usual 90-95C that the reference cooler was doing. Now in the 70-80 range when OC'ed and no throttling tongue.gif

As much as the Asus DCUII cards get a lot crap for falling behind other vendors when it comes to getting a 'golden chip' or needing it's on custom waterblock, they do make solid, silent:D, good looking cards.

Hopefully this will help anyone who is thinking of getting an Asus 290. biggrin.gif

Sorry if this post may seem pointless to anyone.
