Why does the performance get worse when you go past 1300Mhz on the memory, is it the type of GDDR5 memory they are using and aren't designed for that speed or could it be the 256bit memory interface holding it back?:wtf:

because of the error correction ability the ram has. Instead of crash it does that which then gives you lower performance.

Cheers for clearing that up for me.

Hmmm your HD6XXX series specifications seems very interesting, thats what I call a new architecture lol, I like the sound of everything, Im guessing RAY tracing being DX12, sounds good but too soon I think, the only thing I don't like are the number of ROPS, at least 64 IMO, even then I think thats bottleneck but Im not a professional in GPU's so its hard to say, but anyways it looks good so far:toast:

Try setting your memory to ganged mode in BIOS. When I was using DDR2 in my old system I had those issues and this is what fixed my problems.

Betas. The official won't be out until the 24th, and they won't have all the same goodness as these. Maybe the 10.5's?
