[Official] AMD R9 Radeon FURY / NANO / X / Pro DUO FIJI Owners Club - Page 691

post #6901 of 11441
I am interested in getting a Fury (not the X) myself for a new gaming rig (5930K, Sabertooth X99 motherboard, 4x4GB DDR4), but am debating whether I should just wait until next round and buy two of the new ones for 21:9 gaming. Which of the Fiji cards should I get if I decide to buy a holdover until the next generation? I'm leaning towards an R9 Fury from XFX, and would use it as a backup card once the next generation comes out. Note that I will not be buying a 21:9 monitor for a little while; for now I will be using my 2560x1440 monitor for games at least until the next generation of AMD GPUs comes out, so could I get away with an even smaller GPU upgrade until then and be able to max out pretty much every game?

I would get the Nano personally if you don't want the Fury X. With the Nano you still get the full count of stream processors and many are able to hit or exceed Fury X speeds. Also I believe the Fury Nano is still cheaper than the Fury (non X).

In regards to your +mV, you honestly don't need to go over +30mV, from my over clocks, 30 is the best and going higher actually reduces your benchmark scores, so I honest would suggest you don't just max mV and ramp it up.

Start at stock with 545 on the memory, as that's a fixed step up on the memory, and anything before will either round up or down to that number(or 500). And anything over will round down(or up, the next step up is 600(which is extremely unstable from my testing)).

Then bump up as high as you can on the gpu on stock mV and when you can't go any higher, then bump up your mV in incrimints of 10, and then push as high as you can on the +10 before adding another +10.

This gave me my best results, ending up at a stable 1170/545 @ +30mV. Maxing out the mV with 1170/545 actually reduced my numbers.

Really? An R9 390 will max at most games at 2650x1440? I've been out of the game too long!

As for this, unless your set on AMD I would suggest a 980/980ti, on the basis that my car never hits over 35 degrees yet I can barely squeeze a 10% increase from overclocking. Not only that, but my coil whine is like a violin, it's very audible from within my case.

If you are set on AMD, then Nano, On a waterblock you can get almost Fury X results and also very respectable results with an altered fan profile on air. But same issues as above would most likely apply

I am pretty lucky I guess. I have no pump noise or coil whine on my Fury X. The only time I get coil whine is when Valley Benchmark is closing.

I'm not keen on messing with watercooling unless it's built-in. Is the nano worth the premium over a 390 that the other person suggested? A 980Ti would defeat the purpose of saving money now for later purchases given it costs in excess of $600.

Honestly all the games I ran on my 290x @ 2560x1440 ran just fine. I thought you were debating on a Fury series card. If that doesn't matter to you a 290x, 390, or 390x would be fine. Do keep in mind I overclocked it a good bit over stock.

Played BF4, Diablo 3, Skyrim, TF2, Civ 5, Star Wars Battle Front, CS GO, Modded Skyrim...

I was thinking I had to get a Fury in order to max out games at 2560x1440. Apparently I don't, and an R9 390 works, which means I should save money now since the card is only going to be a holdover anyway.
