[Official] AMD R9 390/390X Owners Club - Page 655

post #6541 of 11905
Thread Starter 
Here's what I mean..... look at my run on the left trouncing the 4.6ghz i5 system not only in GPU score (obviously, with my higher overclock), but also beating the CPU by 500 points, yet the scores are identical!!

http://www.3dmark.com/compare/fs/7690020/fs/5548393

The combined score unfairly botches FX CPU's by only using 4 cores.... but whatever, I just sound like a bitter red teamer I guess tongue.gif

Well AMD CPUs are inferior, everyone knows that really.

The differences in real world use are minuscule when pitting an overclocked FX against an overclocked i5 though. Tons of stuff to back that statement up, but I won't have that discussion here, lol. Sure intel IPC has been much better than AMD for years now, but overall performance on competing chips (FX-9590 vs i5 4690k for example) is very close in most scenarios.

The 9590 is clearly superior to any Intel CPU if you're living in a cold climate. Can any Intel CPU be used for space heating? No. The 9590 can do it. So you've got that going for you, which is nice. tongue.gif

All kidding aside, when using all 8 threads it's a more than capable CPU. If it had a more modern feature set it would be holding up quite well, really, especially for the price.

Other than that... I tried reading a bit into BIOS modding for these cards and god damn is it too much to read into. I don't know, I hoped that there would be something like "here is the modded BIOS for your MSI 390x with tighter timings that allows higher voltage, flash it and you're ready to go", but it's never that simple, is it?

It only happens once, was running a few gta 5 benchmarks few times no issues

can it be considered a just a bug or..?

Those are artifacts caused by unstable core. You'll see them in gta v eventually but firestrike is a little more stressful.

There's PT1 and PT2, but I'm not sure if they have memory mods or not.....I think they're just voltage. Would have to ask someone that knows more than I. I know I had one made for me with better voltage and tighter timings...still working on it, to reduce vdroop, but, it's gotten SO much better.

Well, I will read into it more. Even if I have something made for me by someone else, I want to know what it does and how it works. I'm just a wee bit afraid to do stuff myself at this point. I guess you understand.

Did you see any real world performance benefits from the modded BIOS? I'm kinda curious how mine will behave, as 1750MHz in unattainable on the memory, so I was thinking something like applying the same tight timings across all straps and then take it however high it may go. Right now it craps out at 1725MHz half-stable. 1700MHz is doable for gaming, it seems.

Have you benched at 1625 and 1700 to see if the lower strap scores higher?

Even a Skylake i3 is faster in games than any AMD CPU lol, now that is VALUE FOR MONEY.
