Hi guys, is this a normal performance for quadfire r9290x?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
2560X1600 resolution on the default ultra setting.

No OC, stockspeed only.

FPS is range is 110 to 160/170

Average is 130-140 (please also consider that this is the frame rate during recording and it significantly increases when recording is off)

is this normal?

thank you so much, regards from the Philippines.

Yes. At that resolution, you will be bottlenecked by your CPU before your GPUs, which will also cause lower usage.

I would sell 2 cards and use the money to watercool and overclock the crap out of them or get 2 more 2560x1600 displays and slap on G10s or something. Id think anything over 2 cards and the usage/performance gain is not worth the money.

Eyefinity / watercooling would give you more gains per dollar imo.

Anyways..crazy - are you running 2 PSUs for quad fire?

@jerrolds

No just 1 PSU and its only 1350w... that is why im only using 1 ssd and no other attachments.

its really not about the money its about the location, im in Ph and its very hard to get the finest stuff here I have to order from USA and wait for like 15 days before it arrived.

just today I ordered watercooling kit for the 4 gpu and cpu... no plans on getting 3 monitors though im waiting for the 4k monitors to drop prices....

i also ordered 1600w just now from new egg, after waiting for 1 month they finally restocked.

thank you sir
