that seems to be up to debate

You may debate all you want.

Reference (Day one) Sapphire 290x here..

Try these settings out in AMD overdrive and report back..

Set power limit to 8%

Core clock to 7.5% (1075mhz effective)

Memory - stock 1250 (only worthwhile memory oc is 1500mhz+ which needs extra volts, anything less loosens the timings too much to be worth it)

Target GPU temp - 95*c

Fan speed - 70%


Do not let the fan speed scare you, it never goes to 70% to keep it cool. In fact, the way the program ramps up the fan RPM's if I set the fan speed to 60% my card will generally be louder when gaming as it jumps up to max rpm's much faster. I'm not sure why it is this way, but even after hours long game sessions the 70% fan speed setting performs better and is quieter overall. I did a one hour run of GTA V at 4k - fan speed didn't go above 53% at my above settings at zero throttling.. Room temperature is around 74*f so it's not like I live in the arctic, in fact considering it was 90* here today on Halloween you could say it's quite the opposite.


Also, try both bioses, uber mode tends to OC better if I recall correctly, though from reports they are just the same minus fan speed settings at default.

I absolutely do not throttle at these settings on my card during any game I throw at it, and I run 4k so it's definitely being pushed hard. I also have a good 850w power supply feeding it, and my case has good airflow otherwise (one 230mm fan on the side as an intake helps).

Furmark of course will make it throttle for it's own safety and is honestly pretty useless of real world results.

I went from my 1200mhz core /1600mhz memory 7970ghz to my stock 290x and it was a huge upgrade at launch, now it just smacks the 7970ge around.

AMD also has this frame rate target control that will further decrease noise, heat and power usage while framerates remain the same

Quote:
Frame Rate Target Control (FRTC) is a new option in AMD’s Catalyst Control Center that lets you set a maximum frame rate between 55 frames per second and 95 frames per second (fps) for the majority of DirectX 10 and DirectX 11 games. The message from AMD is that FRTC is a triple threat of benefits: You’ll dramatically reduce your video card’s power consumption, decrease fan noise, and lower the operating temps of your GPU.

makes sense, video card never needs to do 80+ fps (or even 60+ really), might as well put a cap on it and keep the card cooler.

I have a UPS with screen that displays wattage usage, I should test this.
