I'm finding it so weird that this Sapphire costs the same as that Palit Jetstream 980Ti where I'm from at least
The cooling seems to be quite average (based on the 980Ti version as per Guru3D). I wonder how it will be with the Fury
Going to be a bit of a squeeze on my case. Card is about ~12inches long
Wish OEM's stop with the "Modes". Just put it at one OC
So much toys...argh wallet is complaining
All the stores where I'm at are quickly taking the 290/290X's off the shelf. Urgh
I wonder if this will be the time to upgrade my ivy bridge
I have to agree, and to be honest, something I wish AMD did as well. My experience on Witcher 3 is hit or miss on my 290X (on High Settings)
True, performance is still top notch (and is business as usual when reaching up to 3.5GB). It is disappointing that the NVIDIA spec sheet was...
It's ACX 2, but it's completely different, the PCB is also different. It seems they fixed the cooler issue
They wanted the patents, when they got them, they sold Moto
Freesync won't be available until display port 1.3 comes out I think
Something that would make it a 10 for me is a 90 degree 24pin, how I crave for a motherboard that has that
So this is the sucessor to the 840 Pro, no wonder the price is quite high, but it seems it has the performnce to match.
I can never get 5ghz on SB, only 4.6 before it began doing crazy things. Granted that's still higher than what I got on Ivy
Hmm, haven't experienced that yet, so far my only issue is that Gpu-Z isn't showing some things in the sensor tabs (it was working alright in the...
Just had the 14.4 drivers update today, but it seems that fan speed RPM isn't showing anymore as it only shows "-".
Going back to...
Yes, I found that while performance is good, it isn't good with battery life. It also lacks support by OEM's (Samsung, HTC etc), as a lot of them...
I agree somewhat, mobile is definitely the next step, and some might say a necessity.
But it is tough there, Qualcomm is dominant, while Intel is...
Awesome, now I guess the only bad thing about de-lidding is the losing of warranty, but for those who don't care about that, this sounds great.
Is warranty still valid if you put on the cooler? If not, I personally would ask the shop you buy it from to install it (unless you bought online...
Such a waste, you hardly can see the difference on TitanFall, the engine is ancient. Not only that, the game is too fast for you to enjoy the textures
The 290X Lightning is already $919 where i'm from. I'm dreading to seed how much this will cost
No OS is "secure", just look at Mac OS X with their SSL issue.
Got the 290 Gaming version. And it's been great both performance wise and temps/sound wise. Great review W1zz, also good to see that you got rid...
