goes to show the 760 without the clock is still superior
(and what´s your favorite gpu maker?....I have a sapphire r9270)
Mate it is true, they use heaps more power which puts out more heat, yes nvdia has had hot cards too but that was ages ago now, yes amd are good value for the dollar per performance but i doubt they would last as long with the higher heat output, no need to be an amd fanboy, im not and nvidia fanboy im just stating the facts!
Why because someone told you? Both cards are of good enough quality, And AMD has a reputation just as good as Nvidia, And as far as AMD running hotter is nothing but a myth, Both Nvidia and AMD have had problems with hot running cards, My R9 270 runs at the exact same temps as my old 650 Ti, And the 650 Ti hardly used any watts. So it really depends on who makes the card for AMD or Nvidia and the rest is nothing but placebo effect which everyone today seems to get allot of. My favorite GPU maker is whoever makes the best bang for buck at the time, People should not get hung up on brands because it does nothing but cost them in the long run.
my gpu-z with a nvidia gtx 760 without clock
Nvidia has made a name for its self to be better quality, last longer and their cards dont run as hot
I did, I managed to bump the clock speed in GPU Tweak to 1063MHz stable, I can make it go to 1071MHz but haven't tested it yet. Here's my GPU-Z:
hey, did you bought the r9 270?
For over $60 bucks less I would have to say the logical choice would be the R9 270 over the GTX 760. I can't understand why Nvidia is so greedy with their prices. It was the opposite last generation.
