[vr-zone] MSI launches R9 290 and R9 290X Gaming 4G video cards - Page 10

post #91 of 114
SO.... Just gamed for 1 hour on stock settings, MAX Core temp was 68* playing SWTOR (I know it's not that demanding) And then set the OC to 1100/1350 and played another hour. Max GPU-z core temp was only 78. So it's not hitting these 90's with actual gaming. I haven't tried BF4 though, it'll probably be higher.

Also, I ordered a couple fans that push more air that I currently am using. It'll get a little better airflow for my 800D, even though my case isn't designed for airflow. Mainly I'll add a PCI slot fan.

VRM's were at like 70* after a few minutes of heaven at stock speeds. But keep in mind this is with bad airflow in my case.

I swear they threw gaming in there so the name didn't sound to ridiculous.

Just R9 290x 4G is a mess of letters and numbers lol. Either way though, I'm just going to wait for the Lightning when and if it comes.

So the Miners Stay away, lol.

Glad to know it works! How's coil whine in that card? I couldn't stand the noise of a ref 290.

I haven't heard a single coil whine. But I'm not so sensitive with coil noise.

I was reading somewhere, I can't find it anymore. But the memory voltage is supplied by the PCI bus PLL voltage on the lightwning . I wonder if it's the same with the gaming cards?

Help - Which GPU to finish off my build?

MSI AMD R9 290 GAMING TWIN FROZR 4GB or MSI GeForce GTX 770 Twin Frozr

I have bought all my parts for my new PC but having to wait for pre-order of the GTX 770 which I may cancel.
Iv'e looked online and the R9 290 is upto 20% faster. The GTX 770 is £310 to buy and the R9 290 is £357. I have had both Nvidia and ATI cards in the past and never had a problem with either and the same with drivers albeit they were crap cards but still.
MSI GeForce GTX 770 Twin Frozr has good reviews, runs cool and performs amongst the best 3rd party custom cooler setups. I don't see any reviews, hands on footage of this MSI R9 290 :|

There is all the new things like shadowplayer, g-sync, mantel etc.... What's the best choice and why. It's either out of these two to finally complete my system and last me hopefully at-leas 5yrs. I will be using my 24" BenQ 1ms 1080p monitor. That may change ....in the future.
I play battlefields 2/3/4, ARMA 2/3, all CODS, Crysis games, GRID 2, DiRTs and many more.

@djdynamite123, if you're just looking at performance then R9 290 is definitely the way to go. The TF 290 should cool well enough also, as seen by users.

I feel like most of the tech being pushed out right now is very gimmicky, but personally (please don't get mad at me about this people tongue.gif), I feel like Nvidia delivers more on their promises than AMD (Mantle being late, FreeSync just trying to steal G-Sync's thunder, etc.). But based on just that I don't see any very significant difference.

Out of the games you listed, most seem AMD biased; the 290 would work better for you in them.

Thanks for the heads up. Am I right in thinking either MSI R9 290 or GTX 770 would have similar parts, capacitors etc, so one isn't built cheaply than the other etc. I would unlikely use Shadowplay, although that's handy to have im not one for recording footage, i rather just play.

People seem to suggest ATI still have poor drivers, buggy etc?

The days of AMD having bad drivers is past... both sides have had bad ones (Nvidia has had overheating drivers that failed to turn up the fan). As someone who has owned AMD and Nvidia cards, currently owns an Nvidia card, and knows people with current AMD cards, both companies's drivers are just decent in my opinion.

People still seem to have the misconception that AMD drivers are just plain bad for some reason.
