[VC] AMD launches Radeon R9 280 for $279 - Page 3

Boost bodels are much harder to undervolt as they often come with locked voltage (and set to 1.25V) and you can only try with Video BIOS editor 7 do manually edit BIOS voltage settings.

As for hashing, HD7950 top out ~ 700 khash/s overclocked above 1100MHz core and then they use a massive amount of power.

From my testing in mining a HD7950 @ 1100/1575 with 1.050V (which is a massive undervolt) uses ~ 230W of power.

That's why I mine @ 925/1575Mhz , undervolted to 0.938V and get 570 khash/s with 165W power draw on Asus HD7950 DC2 TOP V2 card (900/1250MHz stock, 1.094V)


I expect price poping over 320$ within a week on these R9 280 cards. biggrin.gif


CHEERS..

My MSI 7950 I manage to pull 615 kh\s and I have it undervolted to 1.15 with 1010/1500 clocks. Works quite well.

I'll probably grab one. I miss my old 7950 and it was my favorite card. I'd prefer blower fan models too so I'll keep my fingers crossed for one. I assume newegg will have these any second now?

If anyone thinks these will retail for any less than $400.00 they're dreaming. Especially at Gouge-egg.

are they on sale anywhere yet? If these actually go on sale for $280 I'll eat my shirt. Miners will make these things go OOS everywhere in just 1 day.

Or just about any retailer for that matter?

If the R9 280 is priced at $280, you'll eat your shirt and I'll join in by crapping purple twinkies!

Why would anyone buy this when the 280x is only $20 more retail?

Oh, wait...

Shame on AMD. They know they have a part shortage, they should concentrate on manufacturing the cards that can't find their way into the stores instead of this... Shady stuff.

What a terrible time to be buying new cards...

Limited availability this week and a lot more for next week. The prices will probably spike up this week because of the limited availability and sadly stay that way.

I am waiting for all this excitement to settle down before spending a dime on another video card from a retailer.
