    Fallout 4 Performance and Image Quality Preview @ [H]

    people over reacted to God Rays being a performance killer it's Shadow Distance that has much more impact on FPS imo Fallout 4 is a very strange game engine I've had instances in Sanctuary where my framerate goes below 40 FPS, but when I go out exploring and eventually return to Sanctuary...

    Goodbye Catalyst Control Center – Hello Radeon Software Crimson Edition!

    not familiar with AMD GPUs? it's called PowerTune and it's because if you're playing FO4 with capped 60 FPS, then the AMD GPU down clocks because it's running out of stuff to do due to 60 FPS cap. here's my R9 290 GPU load when idling in doors in FO4. GPU load goes to 0% a lot.

    Any reason to get a fury x over a 980 ti for 1440p?

    if you have a freesync monitor if you really don't like Nvidia if you strongly believe in AMD DX12 if you strongly believe in AMD continuing to improve driver performance while Nvidia driver improvements will stop once they start focusing on their latest & greatest architecture otherwise...

    Difference between R390 vs. R390X? LE versions?

    possibly better binning resulting in more aggressive / non-aggressive clocks difference in HSF used performance difference between 390 & 390X tends to be around 5-10% https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Powercolor/R9_390_PCS_Plus/30.html

    390X or 980 for the long run?

    if we're looking at a 4-5 year outlook, I'd wait for the next gen of GPUs otherwise, would go for 390X due to DX12 & 8GB VRAM

    WCCFTech RAM affects FPS in FO4....bullshit

    correct me if I'm wrong, if RAM speed actually affects performance, shouldn't the slow RAM speed FPS eventually match up with the fast RAM speed FPS if you stay in a static position or is wccftech experiencing a memory leak?

    Anno 2205 crippled on all AMD & Kepler GPUs

    http://www.pcinvasion.com/nvidia-353-06-drivers-released-witcher-3-boost-for-kepler-cards/ Either Anno 2205 developers made the game with only Maxwell in mind or Nvidia just focused their drivers on Maxwell and may or may not release a driver update to boost Kepler performance in Anno 2205

    AMD Radeon R9 Fury X Video Card Review @ [H]

    had that initially when trying to install a R9 290 PCS+ where it was black screen from boot to Windows while the fans were spinning tried the video card on an older PC & mobo and it booted up fine went back to the current PC and solution was to make sure the PCIe power cables were plugged in 100%

    AMD Fury series coming soon.

    a game can have 3.5GB+ of VRAM usage on a R9 290, yet a 780TI with 3GB VRAM can still outperform it with higher minimums the answer is the game is caching more VRAM than it actually needs to make use of
