TriX OC R9 290X VS GTX 780 Classified - Page 2

post #11 of 65
Thread Starter 
But how much better is a 290X over a 290? I don't plan on upgrading my components every year tongue.gif Just when I can't play to a good standard any more, reason for GPU change is mostly due to the noise but also some extra FPS is always a good thing! thumb.gif Plus it is the weak point in my build.

1300MHz 780 Classy will be faster than 1200MHz 290X if we're talking across the board. That is, a properly vast amount of games and not just the half a dozen or so most mainstream benchmarking titles.

That claim is based on these two tests:

http://www.overclock.net/t/1452828/reference-card-overclocking-battle-r9-290-vs-r9-290x-vs-gtx-780

http://www.overclock.net/t/1480983/driver-battle-331-82-whql-vs-337-50-beta-12-benchmarks

First one shows a 1176MHz 780 winning a 1090MHz 290X already by some margin with December 2013 drivers. The second one shows an average performance increase of 5.8% from those drivers to the new 337.50 drivers with the 780. If you do the math, you'll end up with a 780@1300 well faster than a 290X@1200.

The main reservations to this conclusion are heavy BF4 preference and higher-than-1440p resolution.

prolly 1400. that will match a 1200 290.

I definitely think you should read this review on the Sapphire 290X

Keep in mind that it's compared to a stock 780, and the 780 Classified would easily get up to 1400Mhz+ if cooled properly. The TriX OC 290X won some and lost some depending on the game and resolution.

The 290X is a great card, but i would pick a 780 Classified to the TriX OC 290X. Either ways, both GPU's would perform very well. The 780 classified might come on top in most games due to it's ability to clock higher than the 290x.

about 50 - 60MHz oc on the 290 more, then it will match a 290X.

how much oc do you have on the 3770K?

No. Once again, a 1300MHz 780 will beat a 1200MHz 290X. You making single line remarks saying otherwise isn't worth much.

no it won't. check your thread. i matched your 780 clock for clock and beat it in 2 of the benchies. with only a 290.

Yes it will. Check my thread. My 780 beat my 290(X) in the very same setup, using the very same settings. You haven't showed anything to counter that fact. Or the overall performance gain from the new Geforce drivers, for that matter.

290 / 780 same clock

Did you flash your 290 to 290x. Could it be that the bios was acting rather strange, since there's a disparity between your 290X and rdr09's 290 ???
