Well, looks like I have to go buy myself a R9 290 when non-reference cards are released.

Then why upgrade? tongue.gif

I'm sure your 7950 will last you till the next gen comfortably, especially if Mantle proves to be decent. Time will tell.

Nah, they know winter is coming and they cater for their customers.




Come to think of it, they would have probably gotten more heat about it if the release was in June.

Turn off the auto-fan profile, problem solved

EDIT: cover your ears with something though

You realize that the temperature of the core has nothing to do with how much heat is dissipated into the air, right?

Yes. Heat is energy and temperature is just a measure of how hot something is.

But the propaganda done against AMD about it succeeds in hiding that fact.

Then again, I guess, it's not like the heat of 290/X is that low.
