    What's bottlenecking me most in Heroes of the Storm?

    Make sure v-sync is disabled, I don't see a bottleneck anywhere from the specs, it could be the CPU but not sure, are you running stock clocks?

    Battlefield Hardline won't repeat BF4's Mistakes

    For me it wasn't about the game feeling dated, it was avatar movement and gun handling, something that Battlefield had always struggled with but made it a priority to improve on since BF3. Hardline on the other hand is a step back on these improvements and enough for me to pass on it, which is a...

    Dragon Age Inquisition benchmarks.

    Does it have an in-game res scaler like BF4? just curious since they're both running on Frostibite.

    HELP: 290 stuck at 150 mhz memory clock under load.

    Hey Guys, So I just got a second 290 for CF, it was a used mining card, everything seems to be running ok except I noticed that both on CCC and Afterburner the second card reads at 150mhz memory clock, the first card shows the default 1250mhz. I know miners change settings in order to save on...

    Quick question, of the cuff, how would my i5 2500k@4.5GHz compare with this list? Thanks in advance, I'm at work, Barracuda blocks everything.

    Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare

    Do NOT fall for the screenshots, every single COD released in the past 5 years looked great on stills and dated on actual footage, this is no different. Activision needed to have it's COD studios transition into a new engine for this release and the fact that they havent done so just shows how...

    AMD Catalyst 14.4 Windows / Linux Driver Now Available

    I was not monitoring the actual temps, but BF4 is the only game that actually stressed the card, I played Diablo 3 for hours without a hicup then BF4 gets the black screen, I am not 100% about changing the max temp, but activating overdrive on catalyst fixed that issue, before turning overdrive...

    AMD Radeon R9 295X2 CrossFire Video Card Review @ [H]

    This is probably why nvidia declined: Also, pretty surprised to see AMD would not see the vram limitations ahead of time with that much horsepower.

    I actually had this happen to a 290 reference, stock clocks.

    AMD Catalyst 14.4 Windows / Linux Driver Now Available

    You mean a problem it took me all of 5 minutes to fix? I'm not even trying to defend AMD, these types of problems shouldn't be happening, but I had a very similar fan profile problem with my nvidia cards, plus the god awful nvlddmkm.sys problem that went on for what it seemed like forever, so...

    AMD Catalyst 14.4 Windows / Linux Driver Now Available

    BF4 black screen lock fix. I just got a 290 on Friday and this started happening on a fresh driver install. It seems that the fan profile is not adapting to higher temperatures under load, IE fan speed is constant no matter how hot it gets. I fixed it by going into catalyst and turning on...

    AMD Catalyst 14.4 Windows / Linux Driver Now Available

    What kind of FPS are you getting on your rig and at what settings? I will be running exact specs once my GPU arrives, thanks!
