Allow 290x in TC

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Here is the original thread:  http://www.overclock.net/t/1436650/allow-290x-in-tc/

 

I wanted to open up the discussion to all the TC members.  Basically the 290/290X, and 780 Ti have been released recently, all upping the ante on PPD.  I think at this point we could allow those 3, in addition to Titan into the GPU-E category.

 

What are your thoughts / comments / ideas?

 

Thanks.

I think it is obvious that the 290X/290 should be added to the GPU-E slot. This will make AMD match the NV setup as it is now.

Top AMD -7970 Top NV- 680....these are direct competitors.

Elite AMD should then be the 290X/290 with the GTX 780 being the elite NV....only right.

Also only makes sense to add the 780ti to elite for the same reasons.

Not sure where I stand on the Titan being added, but would not argue against it.

Or maybe this discussion too: http://www.overclock.net/t/1441203/addition-of-newly-released-hardware-to-tc

 

I'm glad we had one already, and that you made this thread. Thanks anubis1127 :thumb: There are a few more up for debate though, so be sure to take a look at mine as well.

You pretty much have to allow r290/X's.

Can't allow nvidia's previously $650-700 GPUs compete, but then keep our AMD's $400-500 GPUs

On the other hand, I just recently upgraded to 780s to compete in folding....allowing better gpu's would move my hands to upgrade again frown.gif

I can't post in the Cap forum but I'd say allow 290/290X but no 780Ti, 690 and 7990 in dual mode. It will just switch the need to 7990 or 780Ti for GPU-E and I can foresee there not being a lot of people who want to buy those cards and dedicate it to folding 24/7.
