[Various] AMD Radeon R9 290X reviews thread - Page 42

post #411 of 2610
AMD just bent Nvidia and it's cult of fanboys backwards.

All I see is tumbleweeds rolling on the roads right now, still no Nvidia fanboy in sight.
post #412 of 2610

I know I am at least getting one 290x, but will hold off to see what the 780ti brings to the table before I decide on the second one.

 

 

If Nvidia responds with 780ti @ $600..  it will make for an interesting shopping season.

This will be a welcome addition to any 290X buyer.

Nowhere did I say this

Why wouldn't it if you're looking for max performance?
Quote:
Are you claiming the OC deltas on the TITAN's are greater than anything else?

Better than anything except the vanilla 7950 as far as I'm aware (recent GPUs).
Quote:
Nothing you've stated has a bases, as u change your argument.  (Clock for clock, or OC for OC)

I think you just don't understand the argument here.

1) Clock for clock the 290X seems to be matching a Titan.
2) In order to achieve the same performance the cards have to be clocked equally high.
3) Max OC with Titans on water is in the 1350MHz+ range

Thus the 290X will have to clock as high on water to match the Titans. Higher to beat it.

Quote:
1) Custom 780 & TITANs are irrelevant..! The 780ti has been announced!

Why are they irrelevant. If you're buying today you get a choice between R9 290X and ref and non ref. 780s.

Right now non ref 780s are faster at stock.

OC vs. OC we do not know yet.
Quote:
Additionally, the 780ti will arrive around the same time non-ref R9 boards...

And these will be compared once they arrive. However I fail to see why we should not discuss today's offerings just because something else is coming in the future?
Quote:
2) How is OC still in the air..?

Because we don't have real users using their cards on watercooling. We have not seen a single result from a properly OC'd card (on 24/7 cooling)
Quote:
I was a TITAN owner, I didn't care about max OC'ing my card.

Good for you. I hope you didn't buy the card after the 780 launch for stock performance.

However most people in the 1700 page Titan owner's club for example do greatly care about overclocking. "Pursuit of performance" and all that.
Quote:
I think you are confusing the hobby of OC (to achieve the highest number in a bench) to stable 24/7 OC and gaming.

I bench and I game.

Unless I'm playing a game where I can keep 60fps at all times at stock I'm most likely going to be running 1328/1900 on my Titan. More is possible but I don't bother.
Quote:
NOBODY cares about OC'ing a TITAN, they will just buy 4 of them on a classy board and thrum them. Perhaps 20 people on the planet might max OC their TITANS for epeen. Not everyone who purchases a TITAN.

http://www.overclock.net/t/1363440/nvidia-geforce-gtx-titan-owners-club

17,368 posts of caring.

The longest thread in our Nvidia section is 90% about overclocking Titans.
Quote:
But you already said you OC for performance... how many FPS do u gain in BF3 with your added OC?  (how many FPS would u gain if u added another R9..?)

I gain around 35% extra fps with my day to day OC.

I'm glad you don't think OCing is relevant but there are a bunch of people on this site who look for the best possible performance. And more specifically the best possible single GPU performance. Whether the 290X can achieve this depends on its OCing potential on water cooling. Something we have not seen yet.

Well. This is awesome. These should sell like hot cakes. q4 earnings call should be a very healthy one. Console sales, new gpu's, and kaveri desktop. AMD get up to like $20 a share already. biggrin.gif

Take it down a notch, guys, please. That type of bickering isn't going to get anyone anywhere and honestly it's annoying.

Anandtech: 4960X @ 4.2 Ghz, 32 GB DDR3 1866 Mhz 9-10-9-26

Tom's: 4960X @ 4.3 Ghz, 32 GB DDR3 2133 Mhz 9-11-10-28

On both accounts, why? If people want to see for themselves what's wrong, there should be a link to the Anandtech article. It's also somewhat illogical to have a water block news link among review links; that's best posted in a totally new news thread.
