got no clue what is going on with these cards...
Had the same thing happen man, not sure if it's drivers or the bios's for all the non reference cards but it is causing havoc with the core clock speeds and gpu usage.
I had it so it was downclocking in games and staying at overclocked full load speeds on desktop.
Finally got it running right now but still get the issue like you described (40-45 fps, laggy, juttery) above . Not just in bf4 but all games when it's happening. A simple restart fixes it, so at least i feel like i'm in control now and not just getting random spikes etc.
Would be nice to get either a driver or bios that resolves the issue with non reference 290/x's that fixes the issue with core clock speeds and gpu usage for these cards tho so i can stop monitoring clock speeds Edited by mboner1 - 2/7/14 at 6:34am
