CONTEXT:

HARDOCP: The fan unit installed on the MSI Radeon 290X GAMING 4G checked in three degrees Celsius cooler than the MSI GeForce GTX 780 Ti GAMING 3G under full load. When we overclocked the MSI Radeon 290X GAMING 4G, temperatures increased five degrees Celsius and the fans spun slightly faster to maintain the temperature. When 100% fan speed during overclocking, the GPU temperature dropped to 65 degrees Celsius. After finding our maximum overclock at full fan power, we also tested those same settings with the automatic fan control and found that it was also able to support the maximum overclock.

The fan unit installed on the MSI GeForce GTX 780 Ti GAMING 3G checked in three degrees Celsius cooler than the ASUS R9 290X DirectCU II OC. When we overclocked the MSI GeForce GTX 780 Ti GAMING 3G, temperatures increased five degrees Celsius and the fans spun slightly faster to maintain the temperature. When 100% fan speed during overclocking, the GPU temperature dropped to 58 degrees Celsius. After finding our maximum overclock at full fan power, we also tested those same settings with the automatic fan control and found that it was also able to support the maximum overclock.

So to clarify:

Same board partner. Same cooler. Same fan speed. Different temperature.

Noted.

But Newton is a made up unit. It is made from SI units. It's there so you can write down N for force, instead of Kg*m/s^2.

Sometimes physicist make up stuff to make problem solving faster and easier. Eg: Centripital Acceleration.

This is false, too. The whole "made up centrifugal force" thing is a result of physics teachers misinterpreting a term of jargon that actual physicists use, and then miscommunicating that to a generation of students. Who then believe it, because why shouldn't you believe your physics teacher?

Physicists do use things that make problem solving faster and easier, but calling it "made up" is disrespectful and demeans the very serious work that goes into the process.

The same applies here, Once you install it, How long are you going to honestly spend looking at it, instead of A mining or B gaming?

What are you going to sit there dressing it up and taking it to tea parties? "Awww look at that guy/girls partner whats her/his name? Oh its R9 295X2 and it's dress is simply AMAZING" yeah no.

I don't care if it's pink with purple tassels so long as it's mindblowingly fast

Well I said centripital acceration, I meant it is used to solve the centripital force much faster.

Back on topic: I wish EVGA and Zotac would make AMD stuff... Imagine a R9 290X Hydro Copper.

Gentlemen, please keep the name calling out of the discussion. It does nothing but derail the thread.

I'm an NV guy and i'm not shy at all about stating that, but I do think this will be a great GPU. AMD really did make the right choice with the water cooler AIO; I cannot see a blower doing well with 2 fully enabled 290X GPUs. I remember the 6990 which used a blower design and it sounded like a vacuum cleaner. It was pretty stupid.

Yet with the water AIO it should do very well and might even have some OC'ing head room on top of that. Should be a great card for AMD fans IMO. Look forward to seeing the release benchmarks.
