Just watched a podcast the other day that said if you really think about it...AMD hasnt made a "faster" card than the fury in over what...5 years now?

From the release of 290-->580 they are all basicly roughly equivielent in raw performance. The advantages have all been slight clock rate boosts, power effeiciancy, more fearure rich, and smaller size related. Not the true generational gains we have seen in the past.

It is essentially the intel model since 2600k --> 7700k

yeah but if you look in the bright side;

you don't need to upgrade, so you're video card will last a little longer, and the people that needs to upgrade can look into buying the 580 or whatever...


AMD invested in the HBM memory of the Fury, something that hardly anyone wants to invest on, so they're losing money now, so they need to make little steps before making a huge one

Dont get me wrong, I am not really complaining, just pointing out facts. The other advantage i forgot to mention was price. You are getting a much better value as the price of a 290 on day 1 compared to the much better 580 is astounding. We have a very capable 1080p/60hz ultra everything card now for around $200 US that stays cool, is small, and can literally sip power when compared to the 290 series which first brought us that level of performance by AMD, but at a higher cost with fewer advantages.

While AMD hasnt been pushing the performance end of things lately, that doesnt mean they have not contributed greatly to the betterment of the market. GCN, HBM, APUs, Mantel/Vulcan, Relive, Wattman, and the new Chill software which looks promising (see video i linked earlier in thread) are all just a few things helping to move "pc gaming technology" forward by making it better or more accessible to everyday users.

In MSI AB settings tab there is a checkbox related to this issue you must check. It is a wattman/relive issue that you can disable in AB. Just got to find it. I would give you more details but im at work. Will update this post when i get home.

[Edit] Ok,I believe the vary last option under AMD COMPATIBILITY OPTIONS called "erase autosaved startup settings" is the setting you need to enable to get the Crimson/wattman bug that keeps MSI AB from working properly fixed. I had a heck of a time but managed to get it working and i am fairly confident this was what did the trick. Let me know.

I really wish we had full functionality for wattman as i would love to just use that, but since we dont and i know MSI AB pretty well now i just used that since i somehow seem to be the only one who has gotten Crimson and AB to play nice. Maybe we can change that. Let me know and good luck. thumb.gif
