Overkill3D - PowerColor R9 295X2 Crossfire

3D Mark Vantage

We're finally CPU limited. It's taken a while but here we are. Sure if you went to an exotic cooling solution you can annihilate these numbers, but in terms of a system that you can just turn on and go, the PC equivalent of a turn-key dragster, then we're sure you wont get much more out of a single CPU arrangement. Yes of course these are OC3D records. Hell if we got the X score attained on these as a P score we'd be impressed. We even added the GTX690SLI setup just for kicks.

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.

Awesome video, especially that power draw! That sag though on the bottom card

Insane, in all ways from heat generated to performance. As far as I know, Quad Crossfire/SLI isn't even technically supported.

Always love the jab at trolls/fanbois too.

and now the scores of a Titan Z please, just for shits and giggles... considering that a single Titan Z costs as much as two R295X2 + two full cover water blocks for them I think I know where my money would go... if I had that kind of money, that is

SB-E hexcores can cause problems with Quadfire Hawaii

I had to swap out my 3970X for a 4930k to get my single cards to run properly. Another guy with a similar setup to mine also had to do the same.

Another good video. I've been waiting for this for a little while now. I would love to see some F@H numbers from that rig.

Is it just me or did that "Titanium" rated efficiency take abit of a hit. Its running a 68% according to the screenshot.

http://www.overclock3d.net/gfx/artic...154640501l.jpg

*80 PLUS Titanium certification with an incredible 94% efficiency rating.


something i noticed that seems a miss is the current draw on the mains. It says its drawing 242V 0.97A for a total of 1321.9W.

The thing is-

W=IxV or 242Vx0.97A= 234.74W

for that kind of Wattage i'd be expecting to see something more like-

242Vx5.46A=1321.9W
