never get me wrong i aploud amd for the strides they are making but pound for pound in the ring nvidia still holds the title. as much as i would like to see amd force nvidia to bring there prices down by building a better card with better options for the gamer, i still have to tip my had off to nvidia. my games just run soother might be a few frames less but the games still run better than on the amd cards. but with that said i also own the gigabyte wind force 280x's two of them and they run super cool, so hats off there to gigabyte, its not the prettiest cooler by any means but it is functional. im no fan to any brand as long as i can get a product to work as intended. i have realy high hopes for mantle and what it will bring to the table for gamers, but now im also looking into this so call directx 12 seeing as how apperantly we missed 11.2. mad.gif back on topic though i would most def check those drivers on the nvidia gpu and make sure before you install the current driver, delet all of the evidence of the old driver. then re do your bench test's. thumb.gif

probably because you own R9 280Xs not 290s.

read better i own a two r9 280x's, a 290x, and 2 evga gtx 780ti's. i borrowed my buddies 2x 290's for testing, and i have alson benched 2x asus dcu 2 270x's. just to compair, and for giggles a gigabyte gtx 780 and a pair of 770's. wide variety, i have even gone as going back and compairing my two matrix gtx 580's to all the new current gen. even though they are well aged by now they still hang in there under game loads. they fall back on synthetic testing but in game they still do very well. so like i said in my last post i have ran my tests and in my opion right now the better performance is hands down in nvidias favor. but i am hopeful with new drivers and a drastic price drop back to normal prices of the r9 series amd can put them selves back on top, to include there procesors as well. i would love to a true competitor give intel and nvidia a run for there money especaily in price for performance. but right now with how the amd line skyrocketed due to retailers greed im guessing the gamer gets the boot. im lucky i have a huge folowing here in pc gamers to be able to play with all the new tech as it comes out and have people that have to have the newest of the new. so i get to test all the stuff they want to put in there systems before i build it for them.

in the end brother wasnt trying to prove you wrong it just seemed strange that the current king of the ring gtx 780ti being fully unlocked was working so bad for you. only thing i could see that ould happen was two things driver related some how or a bad gpu, wich does happen in any brand of gpu. one of my first 280xs was doa, but once i sent it back to newegg my replacement worked with out a hitch. all in all you cant go wrong with any of the gpus right now, i just cant stomach the new prices on the r9 series cards.
