Ugggggg


No kidding.


My ASUS DC2 is still kicking butt on my sons rig. Flawless 60fps on fortnite (his favorite right now).



I miss the days of AMD on top with way under binned cards. Now we have next to no overclocking headroom, a million power states, and hardware voltage limits. Aaaaand you have to pay through the nose for it.

my old HD4850 that this hd7970 is replacing is still kicking well but, it lacks DX 11. so it either runs a game well enough or not all. IT was interesting trying to explain to my brother that it wasn't the games fault but, the video card despite it working so well.

A good card will overclock 1200 on the core, 1600 mem. (depends on the memory type)



1.3 is high as I ever went on voltage, but that was under water, so somewhere closer to 1.25 maybe on air?

I still have an overclocked HD7950 (variant with the HD7970 PCB) , I flashed an R9 280 BIOS on it. It have a mild OC with 1,1 Ghz core and slighly OCed memory . It still running fine despite being almost 6 years old. It runs many games ok for [email protected] fps even this year, just tweaking down some options depending on the game. For some demanding new games it show some limitations but It is still working and I will maintain it while it works and the GPU prices stay so inflated. To the day it is the GPU served me better of all the GPUs I owned.

I have some questions about this legendary bang for the buck card:
- There is any advantadge on running a R9 280 BIOS instead of an original HD7950 one?
- Should I replace the stock TIM? It is Arctic MX-4 compound fine for it ?.
- There is any aesthetically fine way for a fan mod? Temps wise stock 75mm fans are fine, but they're too noisy at high RPM.

Greetings.

I'm selling my old 7950's on ebay... both have R9 280 bios's on them, the only advantage to that is seeming memory timing related... a minor, but consistent improvement over the 7950 bios.... a link if anyone is interested: https://www.ebay.com/itm/273624013589 that is only for one of them... the other is in my items for sale... I don't know if this is against the "rules" to put this here, but I figure that given the disabled nature of the site now it's be ok to put this here instead of the normal places

If there are any 7990/7970/7950 owners still lurking here, the OCN BOINC team is currently running the [email protected] project as our GPU Project of the Month for January. The MilkyWay project utilizes fp64 calculations, so these cards are still very relevant for the work that this project is doing. Link to the [email protected] homepage: https://milkyway.cs.rpi.edu/milkyway//index.php

If you want to help out the OCN team head on over to the BOINC section and check it out. https://www.overclock.net/forum/365-...et-boinc-team/
