that is some embarrassing stuff. it looks like a 150$ card (red PCB, really), performs on par with the 780 and that is saying it nicely since it lost most benchmarks, and it released half a year after the 780? all they've got going for them is the price and that better be around 500 euros, because else there is no way i could recommend this to anyone.

The casing, even on the video looks cheap. Such a shame.
Thanks Tom.

not sure if you would need a dedicated loop just for the gpu, the card is hitting 95c because thats what the software is set to let it hit and the cooler isn't that great to keep it under the "target" a 3rd party cooler will be much better at keeping temps down allowing for overclocking.

If you stick it under water you won't be getting anywhere near 95c and just like cooling any other high end GPU the effect on water/component temp would be minimal.

Are we going to see prices of the 780's driven down at all by this release?

Thumbs down Review of the review

Honestly, this is a terrible review (video) in my opinion.

1) You complained about the cooler being ugly. That is a personal preference, personally I like the way it looks and I dislike the one from nvidia. Yes the Titan one. Yes, it's not the same in terms of build quality, but that's not a reason to dislike a GPU in general. After all, at 550$ and with the performance you get, I think that's really not something to complain about.

2) You keep complaining about the 95 degree temperature but you seem to ignore the fact that it's configured by default to run at these temperatures. It's like nvidia's boost 2.0, they have set the maximum temperature to 95 degrees that the card just boost as high as it can reaching that number. Again, this is fully customizable so complaining about it is not sensible.

3) You compared it with an aftermarket 780 from MSI, advising us to buy that one of those instead, completely ignoring the fact that there will be aftermarket 290X with better optimised drivers that MIGHT perform better, cooler and quieter. How exactly is this a fair comparison?

4) You claim that because it runs so hot, it doesn't/can't overclock. Yet, you didn't even talk about how the new Powertune technology works or even cares to manually do something yourself. Also, no aftermarket cards are out yet so that statement is invalid.

5) You didn't talk about any of the technologies that come with the card, especially Mantle and TrueAudio or even specifications.


All in all, this is totally against AMD. You said that their cooler is "" (your word), that it's ugly, that it doesn't perform well or overclock. You didn't even respect the effort these guys put into this card considering their situation. On the contrary, for almost 10 minutes you kept advertising nvidia's reference cooler and even advised us to buy one of their cards. All that in a REVIEW.

A review is supposed to give us information about a product, it's pros and cons, features that come with it etc. What you did was mostly an unfair comparison video between 780 and 290X.

1) Not only looks, build quality as well.

2) Looking at the past, cards running at such temperatures are prone to micro fractures due to heat changes.

3) They aren't out in a while.

4) The cooler is so underpowered that the card underclocks itself after reaching 95c. The card is noticeably quicker at 100% fan speed, but then the noise is 65db.

5) He did talk about mantle, TrueAudio is just a clone of Dolby Headphone which requires support from the game itself.

Just my 2 cents, ofc doesn't reflect TTL's opinion.

Anyway, I originally came to post this:


-video fixed, you're welcome. SuB-
