Yeah, because you are certainly not trying to justify your AMD purchase in every single thread. Talk about insecurities...rolleyes.gif

Loss or not. I cannot say enough about the 4GB EVGA GTX 960 FTW. I love mine and destroys any thing @1080p. Perfect card for that resolution. biggrin.gif

I don't need to justify my purchase though wink.gif Bought it for $200 USD on craiglist, plays all the games I want on 1440P on ULTRA settings with no issues and I don't even overclock it. I made the RIGHT purchase, can't say the same for other people.

justifying your purchase is fine by my standards as long as you don't call people who chose other products stupid, which he always does. plays 1440p ultra settings on a 290 with no issues. I guess 45fps on avg is not an issue.
I can clearly see that AMD is trying to prove how much better 380 is by showing 5fps avg lead on a resolution which no one would consider playable with either of those cards, but what the hell. Like I said, if sb really wanted to put those cards to test, then 1080p 144hz would be the way to do it.

Funnily, 380 can engage every resolution your card can play at. Isn't that wonderful?

You underestimate 290X, even on GTA V with ultra settings 1440P my MINIMUM is 45FPS

You should add that this is your version of Ultra. Which obviously includes all the advanced graphical settings turned "Off" as well as no AA.

I was just giving an example because GTA V is probably one of the most demanding game out there when set at a high graphical settings.

And I have FXAA ON and MSAA 2X

Yea, you kind of need direct comparison in modern games.

These screen shots are from witcher 3. I used the presets. I started at the max under both graphics and post processing tabs and lined them up as I went. I did not do the lowest settings for graphics.

All at 1440p

Max (presets graphics and Max post processing)


High (presets graphics and Medium post processing)


Medium (presets graphics and Lowest post processing)



Just dropping from preset max to High the vegetation and textures take a nice hit. The lighting also isn't looking as hot. By the time you get to the last screenshot Geralt's hair is a totally different color.

They all look good enough and are well within what I'd consider playable visuals. The hair on Garalt at Medium is kind of disappointing.
