[Various] AMD R9 295x2 Reviews - Page 36

post #351 of 539
Did I read this right?
The 295x2 will temp throttle at 75C. I realize this is water cooled but this would limit you on overclocking. What AMD wants?

Where did it say that?

Thanks Sarge! +1. I'll try to get one at launch, add the EK block and see what it can do! Selling 2 (of 3 kingpins w/EK blocks)... the last dual GPU card I had was the 5970.

I think it has to do with water getting too hot killing pump.

They told us Moore's Law continues and it never did. It died when it "continued" with multiple cores. CPUs do not get to continue Moore's Law with multiple cores, that's a deception and anyone minimally proficient in technology knows it.

We consistently see how harder it is to bring new products the last 2-8 years without raising prices enormously. It's not their greed, they always were greedy, it's just harder now. e.g. they are locked on 28nm on GPUs and they must raise prices by raising die size to bring something impressive. All this nonsense about "greedy NVIDIA" is myopic. AMD also had to make a smaller chip than the GK110 right now because they obviously have to limit the high costs, there is no other as reasonable explanation.
So I guess you are saying they should have a made a bigger chip w/ a higher TDP? Not likely,clearly they are at the thermal limit now.

No one seems to remember AMD CPU's costing $1000...or a 256Mb HDD selling for $3,000,or 52" Plasma TV's selling for $12,000. Price is always relative.
