AMD 290 (non-x) vs Watercooled 7970 - 3DMark Result

Thanks to 'primouf'

He did some 290 3dmark runs here : http://www.3dmark.com/3dm/1515052

So, (left) Primouf's Stock 290 (non-x) @ 947/1250 vs (right) My Watercooled 7970 @ 1360/1860



The result indicates that the 290 is one hell of a card out of the box !

Yeah, she is definitely a screamer, what's more impressive is that the 290 does all that, out of the box, heaven knows what they are going to do underwater. A 40% overclock over stock implies a 14k graphics score.

You should have reduced your res to his, and he should be running in full screen mode.

Cool :-) It might be worth going through the settings with him, as he said in the other thread that he had never used heaven before.

How far can you overclock it Primouf?

If an R290 can do 1.2GHZ it'd be interesting.

Looking good. Hopefully the price is right though and it doesn't run as hot as the 290X (we can dream! ).

that was the max during other tests and games with lower fan speed ( i did not close afterburner )

and if it really did go to 94C during my last test then you wouldn't see 42C right afterwards... as it takes a sh*t load of time to get back down in temp.

That score in 3DMark is pretty damned impressive for those clocks. This card could be a beast and surpass its bigger brother in quite a few scenarios (Like the 780 does the Titan).

Thanks for sharing these bench score Primouf

Interesting! This 290 is looking to be one hell of a card (so long as the price is right of course).

Just quoting this here from the other thread.

Stock Titan speeds for 450? (+ 350 + 100 for the block).
