Re: Nvidia's FU to overclockers
said by Krisnatharok:They tested both 1080p and 1600p. Not only does it fall short in FPS, it also uses a shit ton more power, and is louder... said by Ghastlyone:
I'm seriously considering going with AMD this next time. They just need to step up their game a tad more to give Nvidia some real competition. I just read about the stats on the 7990 vs the gtx690. And unfortunately, it falls quite short.
At what resolution? AMD has been owning the super-high-rez/multi-GPU efficiency scaling crown for quite a while now.

PowerColor's presentation is grand and the bundle is a nice touch, but while performance is exceptional at times, there's no getting round the fact that the Devil 13 is bigger, louder, less efficient and more susceptible to driver inconsistencies than the well-engineered GeForce GTX 690.
It's out of stock again, but this is the one you want (just set up auto-notify and camp your email, it will go OOS within hours):
They get a shipment in every couple weeks.
If we lose this freedom of ours, history will record with the greatest astonishment, those who had the most to lose, did the least to prevent its happening.

Yep, I'm either getting that one, or the 6gb version...
