For those who swapped from a 780, has it been worth the trouble?
That's a great score, your getting some impressive scores out of your system.
Here is a fun one
Long ago before these cards launched I predicted to Humbug that @1200/1350 the card would score 1523. Humbug said just under 1500, I think 1497 to be exact.
This is what the card actually can do at 1200/1350
I was only 7 points out on my prediction.
Just playing games I cannot tell them apart other than the 780 is quieter.
If you already have a 780 and unless you are in to benchmark scores I see no point swapping to a 290x at the moment. I would wait until the 780ti and custom cooled 290x cards are available if you can.
frenzy your bsod problem seems similar to mine. runs fine until drivers are installed. i will keep you updated if i find the solution
Your temps wow hahahah
So far I couldn't be happier with my 290x in heaven and valley its roughly 50% faster then my 7950 which was at 1050 core and 1400 memory now to see what i can do with abit of an overclock on it.
If that temp was right it would be hotter than the surface of the sun.
AMD Radeon R9 290X(1x) @1230/1625
Intel Core i7-3970X Extreme Edition Processor @4.8
Graphics Score 6232
Physics Score 17414
Combined Score 2656
I wish I had a copy of Win8 for this.
A LOT hotter!
Epic score for #2 on the table. Why didn't you order the £30 Win8 upgrades when MS were doing them - I picked up 4.
I picked up 2.
Plus whatever Start8 cost me
What's the Win 8 advantage? I'd upgrade for £30
Not sure about you but at the time it cost me £1.75 and i use it on two different computers. Well worth it. I think its gone up to £4.99 now though.
Faster performance for everyday use and game benchmarks.
Is Kaap really penny-pinching over a new OS after buying 4 new cards?
Better FS scores and better performance in BF4. Thats what im 100% certain about.
Oh ok. Seems a bit pointless for me then as I expect the minor performance I wouldn't even notice.
BF4 performance increase isnt minor.
