Awesome video, Is it just my eyes or is the lower card sagging quite a bit ?

Dem benchmark scores

Pretty decent scaling in some of the games, over 100% in some of them which for quad fire is good.
And to think, you can get this set up for just over the price of one Titan Z

EDIT: make that £400 less than one Titan Z

Hmm, the scaling is actually surprisingly disappointing.

Edit: BRB, switching my eyes. Yeah, scales quite well, don't know what I was looking at.

100% percent scaling in certain scenarios disappoints you

Up to 100%+ is pretty good and that is at 4K.

Excellent video! "For all you AMD trolls, go back in your cave, cover your self up and shut up"! almost wet myself, with 1300w at the wall what is the wattage while idle with the second card switch off...

"That's my P scores" Phrase of the week!

Great video review Tom.I have a couple of R9 290X Tri-x laying about,i sometimes add one of the to the R9 295X2.But then i remove it because i don't feel comfortable pulling 800 watts out of my wall.

Lovely video Tom. Man that would be an awesome overkill rig for folding on. As long as you could keep it cool. On a good note, the system doubles as an office heater in the winter.
