it depends on what you're working with/graphics horses that you have. freesync monitors have fixed ranges of out the box but you can change it quite easily with CRU that works better with your system. I had mine at 56-144hz default was at 35-90Hz which doesn't make sense you'd never see your fps dip down to 35fps anyway

Mod?
I think it depends on the monitor what it can handle and there are only so few monitors with updatable firmware. And yeah some monitors got Freesync as a FW update you can only dream about that with Gsync proprietary expensive card being stuck inside the monitor to even support Gsync.

Well it's good that you gave it a whopping 72 hours before you cut bait and ran. Most places have a 14 day return period but it's a good thing that you didn't even wait to see what was going to happen. I mean, it wasn't like Freesync was a new technology at the time or anything. And it's not like early adopters have ever had issues when it comes to buying new tech. rolleyes.gif

They work the same as nVidia ones. Didn't like performance in some games? How so. Is there one game out there where 970 performs better than Fury?
chill guys, guy just said he had a personal bad AMD experience, no need to bite his head off for that rolleyes.gif


AMD is not, in fact, perfect redface.gif

As expected the 1070oc cannot compete much vs the 980ti massive overclock gains.There are games that they are going toe to toe but in others the 980ti is between 10- 20% faster.I don't expect much headroom from custom cards maybe 5% gains at best. The oc gains from the gtx 1000 series is underwelming currently gaining about 15% from overclock.Even the gtx 1080 seems unimpressive when pitted against the 980ti oc in the video.

These cards have no business being sold anymore than $400 and $600 at launch based on performance numbers and what is expected of new generation cards.Hopefully Vega delivers otherwise the consumers are screwed this year.
bull results b/c he always has stock 1070 at stock 980Ti level and below stock Titan X

every single review I read had stock 1070 ahead of stock 980Ti and on par with stock Titan X

so yeah redface.gif

yes 1070 gains ~15% from OC, and 980Ti gains 20-25% (depending if its 1400+ or 1500 Mhz), but 1070 stock IS in fact always ahead of stock 980Ti, so it ~evens out


nice try biggrin.gif but I see the shenanigans

Leon voice: 2015, I'll never forget it.

It was when I updated my drivers and started have color bleeding and lost performance. I thought my dual GTX were dying. I had been with Nvidia since the GTX 400 series and the 900 series had already released. The GTX 980 Ti and Fury X were on the way.

Same PC settings.
Tested on 7-2-2015 - GTX 670 2-way SLI

Ice Storm:
P198567 = 337.50 Driver - 4-7-2014
P192385 = 344.48 Driver- 10-22-2014 [Post Maxwell 900 series]
P185572 = 353.06 Driver- 5-31-2015 [Suppose to fix Kepler smh]

Fire Strike
11205 = 331.82 Driver -11-19-2013
10796 = 344.48 Driver - 10-22-2014 [Post Maxwell 900 series]
10930 = 353.06 Driver - 5-31-2015 [Suppose to fix Kepler = Did better than 344.48 post Maxwell, but still lost to older 331.82 driver - pre-Maxwell]

Post Maxwell drivers I had plenty of issues like color bleeding and crashing etc. I literally thought my GPUs were defective, until I loaded the older drivers and saw the performance "magically" re-appear! Smh Nvidia. So here I am waiting eyeballing a GTX 980 Ti Hybrid and a Radeon Fury X. I don't care how many links people post about Kepler not being gimped, all I know is that from my experience it made my decision much easier. I went with AMD and got the Fury X. DX12 has been a blast so far [except for that Rise of the Tomb Raider DX12 Garbage] and I've seen some nice increases with AMD drivers in several games.

For instance Hitman @ 4K 100% Maxed increased from [Day 1] 36fps to 44fps in the latest update. That's a nice 22% with no overclocking involved.

Next up will be Vega vs GTX 1080 Ti. Looking at Nvidia DX12 performance so far with the GTX 1080, Vega might already be better in the long run.

I have no doubt Vega will be better in the long run, but most people buying top end cards replace them quickly anyway so they won't really care too much.

That is true. Some people are willing to to pay a ton for the "temporary" leading GPU yearly. My GTX 670 SLI worked well for awhile, but SLI and CFX just isn't what it used to be for me. These GPUs get more expensive yearly and it seems like you get more bang for your buck with AMD drivers and optimizations. Next year will be my second year with the Fury X and I'm waiting to see how well it will be performing since more DX12 and Vulkan games are on the way. I know Nvidia is getting that GTX Titan and 1080 Ti ready for the AMD competition.

Does the different EVGA models work together in sli? I guess the ones with 5+1 Power Phase's are just reference cards? I am just thinking buying the cheapest EVGA card(400dollars) with a AVX cooler, then later if a 1080 TI or whatever comes later, are not too expensive, I can easily sell it with just a small loss. As long as it is not too close to next summer or when an updated version comes along. Even if it turns out to be cheap, the loss will be small relative to the new ti model.
