When are we to expect AMD's next gen of video cards? - Page 3

True, but where's the fun in that? :-)

Or you could... you know... buy an NZXT Kraken G10 or Corsair HG10. Both of which accomplish what you just said with a lot less work.[/quote]

Tonga is nothing special unlike the 750 ti. At least we had something to look forward to with Maxwell after seeing the 750 ti.

If Tonga is what we have to look forward to with new AMD, I'll be disappointed. I'd love to have a powerful AMD gpu minus the heat or the consideration of having to slap a water cooler to it.

Lol.. True that. I'm an electrician and did some work at one of AMD's buildings today.. If they were as concerned about energy management of their gpus as much as they are with it at their buildings things would be MUCH better. Even the damn soda machines have motion sensors to turn them off when not in use.

I had a DCU2 for 6 months. The card hits 85c+ without running 60% fan and is definitely not "quiet". No my card was not defective. The DCU2 is an inherently flawed cooler on a 290x because they simply slapped the 780 cooler on it and left two heatpipes that don't make contact. It may however seem quiet to you when in use with a ref cooler.

Here are the temps of all of the original run aftermarket 290xs

Note this list does not test the Lightning 290x which is arguably the best GPU ever made.

The 290 series first run aftermarket coolers were mostly bad as AMD did not give AIB partners enough time to develop good coolers.

I just checked the box - DCUII OC. So... you either have a **** card, or are smoking crack, cause I'm mining X11 on it, and at 90% fan, it stays below 70C. But, yeah, about quiet, I suppose that's relative. I just switched from the ref cooler - it sounds like heaven to me.

I'm getting pretty close to 750Ti hash per watt on X11 - while Nvidia is undoubtedly better with efficiency, raw calculation power helps.

Why don't you look at other reviewers who have the same problem. Yes the card can stay in the 70s at 90% fan speed but that is wayy to loud for normal use. At 60% fan the DCU2 is tolerable and runs at about 82c stock.

Fair, then. I don't mind the noise at all, but some people might.

So are those leaked slides true? If we are looking at a sumer release that's a long time from now.
