Waiting on Raven Ridge to upgrade on the mobile side of things. Yes, that R9 is a giant heatsink. As far as cf goes? Several of the older games now cf far better than any else on the newer windows does. Granted I have not played any of the newer popular titles except that which is in development and unleased.
I guess at the end of all that? I like my Sapphire Fury TriX! Next card will be back to AMD because Nvidia has been hostile to passthrough users, even if there have been simple workarounds so far. I feel like Nvidia may usually have the better tech, AMD has been more consumer friendly company and I want to support that. I no longer need top-of-the-line graphics capability, since I can barely tell the difference between p and p, and anything beyond that is wasted on my eyes.
Ive been given old systems over the years, and tend to keep them if its easier to run old games on them, I forget half of their GPUs most were trash anyway So here are the ones I remember:.
I have some NSFW pictures of my r9 It was a good card for the time. If I remember correctly, it was the highest performing single GPU card on the market at the time of purchase. The was better from what I remember, it was basically 2 GTX on one board , but also out of my price range. This card sags without a gpu support bracket. It sure has for me on my ti. The year was I was at a lan party with my badass rig specs below , the time was 4: We had about 10 people in a small, hot room all playing battlefront II, since we had tired of BF: Things were going well as I was in second place when a new challenger appeared.
I hear the jingling of a collar from the door. This was all well and good, save for the tennis ball. It was a perfect storm, I remember watching in slow motion as this happened. I was on the end of the table, my case was on the floor. I had a half finished can of red bull sitting on my desk, my case was on the floor. I saw the ball flying through the air, my case was on the floor. I watch in terror as the can falls over, lands on the top of my case and begins to pour in through the top fan holes.
It takes me a moment to come to the realization that my PC is probably toast, as I hear fizzing and liquid pouring down through my case. I happen to be close enough to footsie the power strip into the off position, so I do that as fast as I can while letting out a scream to wake the dead and consequently the neighbors.
With my PC off, I immediately pull the can off the top of it, pull open the door to the case, unplug the power cable just in case someone tries something stupid and run to the kitchen for paper towels. With everyone in the room anxiously watching, I turn on the power strip, plug in the cable and press the power button.
I flip the switch on the power supply and try again. It immediately springs to life, and with a single post beep, indicating everything is good, I look up with angst to my monitor to see the EVGA logo proudly displayed on my mediocre x display.
Moral of the story is twofold. The amount of hardware that I have ever used is not only staggering, but impossible to remember. The R7 was a single fan card by Gigabyte, boy is it loud and built poorly though. Ive been given old systems over the years, and tend to keep them if its easier to run old games on them, I forget half of their GPUs most were trash anyway So here are the ones I remember: It plays early s PPC Mac games fairly well.
Its one of the better cards that the G4 can even use. This thing is HOT and loud. Like 70c hot, and annoying small fan loud. I cant argue with Quake 3 running 90fps at x! Its quiet, it runs a lot of lower end games well. Dunno what to do with it. Hopes it serves me for a long time. Though… it might cause issues when it comes to Linux…. I set mine to red, fits the theme perfectly. I have some NSFW pictures of my r9 pic: Specs at the time: Congrats OP on starting something that is fun for computer building geeks like me.
Gifted to me to give my PII system enough grunt to play Morrowind. Good enough to play DoD: Bought this with a gift card to Game Stop. Needed the power to play ArmA II. Run until nearly dead. Mined enough to pay for a completely new PC in which it would serve for a few months before being shelved. Sexiest reference design known to man, but fuck it sucked at multi-monitor and SLI drivers were atrocious.
Water cooled both and ran them through two separate systems before one card got zapped. Regret selling, was an awesome card. Set the official FireStrike world record for the R9 Nano with this card. Will definitely be keeping it in the collection when I move on.
It also had to be replaced under RMA once. Also the cooler is bent which has slightly bent the PCB too, happened in shipping. It is also second hand, a real trooper. Those 3dfx cards always looked so sweet.
Never owned one though. This and the next card were during my diehard Linux phase. First GPU Passthrough build, currently in use. Got it right after the first bitcoin mining craze ended. I love the 0rpm at idle feature on these cards. The first dedicated card I had.
Worked for the upgrade and got it on firesale in as the series launched. Had to give up the with my old PC and needed something to game with. Purchased on firesale right after the series hit shelves.
Purchased to mine Bitcoin, which it was damn good at. Found this card on massive sale and of course had to buy it. Purchased as a pair for less than the single GTX Engineering Sample that I got from SoulFallen not long ago. Saw the stars in Minecraft for the first time, the integrated could not get that far, convinced me PC was the way to go.
Bought as a hold over while I saved for a real GPU for my first PC, remains a fallback card for when things go wrong and need to be tested, has saved my ass a few times in this capacity. Was my brothers card for this PC, accidentally bought the 1GB version and amazingly it never caused a problem even as the games claimed they needed more, was replaced by my above when I upgraded.
