take a look on youtube dumb ass
guys this is bullshit r9 295 x2 kills the 980 ti look on youtube
This way that happend: They're testing 1 core to 1 core. 295x2 is a dual GPU card. Only they forget to mention that test is done that way.
what's with all the little girls fighting over which company's ass is better to kiss?!
*eats popcorn*
because the test is flawed, they're only comparing one of the cores in the 295X2, basically making the comparison a 290X vs a 980, but still claiming it's a 295X2 vs a 980
so basically they're comparing a R9 290X while claiming to test a R9 295X, wow... that's retarded it's like claiming a pentium G is faster than a FX8350, and only use 2 cores of the 8 on the 8350
lol you're retarded, the AMD costs 20% more than the nVidia but when people compare titan X's to AMD cards it's not a retarded comparison... the fact is that the card is cheaper than a Titan X and performs better and more expencive than a 980, but performs better Dual GPU doesn't matter, price/performance does matter + AMD doesn't make the comparisons, this site does
so basically they're testing a single GPU card (basically a R9 290x) while claiming they're testing a dual GPU card...
yeah i see the r9 290x, the r9 295X2 and the 780TI, no 980TI is used in this comparison the R9 295x2 would still beat it tho, but the comparison video you showed doesn't include it
the shittiest comparison ever made !!
You can see in the video that it's a 780 Ti... Come on.
That is total bullshit
We all know the R9 295X2 murders anything in front of it.One tough cookie.Crossfire 'em and you have all those nvshitdeans peeing on their pants with their Fancy and overpriced GTX 980 and the Titanic Z,X...Whatever that shit is.They are the worst people on Internet.Daammn !
Gtx 980 is a giant there is no graphic card can fight with this giant.but i think in future r9 390x can takeover gtx 980
R9 295x2 beats all GPU's on the market!
I would just love it, if we could get unbiased scores, this test should not be looked at in a way that displays it as a single gpu vs a sli gpu setup, it should test the cards as they are for what they are, If you wanted to see a score of 2 980's in sli vs the 295x2 then you should have checked if there is such a comparison, a person comes here to check how cards perform against one another as to maybe inform oneself as to the purchase that you would like to make, as i am sure everyone wants the best bang for their buck.
Of course GTX 980 SLI will beat out the Radeon R9 295X2 because the R9 295X2 is basically two slightly overclocked R9 290X. GTX 980 > R9 290X so GTX 980 SLI is better
Such BS! xD A stock 295x2 beats even an OVERCLOCKED GTX 980, the proof is right up there. ^ Facts are facts, and Nvidia paying off sites like GPU boss to publish misleading information to up their sales is just more proof that they are a bunch of greedy, lying Jews.
Funny GTX 980 SLI won every one considering that the R9 295x2 is really a duel crossfired card and has 500w and the GTX 980 SLI I assume is only 330w fair enough its more expensive for the two 980's SLI but it still wins. Was there something i missed?
Oh and theres a 200-250 dollar difference in price, for the same difference a titan x (z) will annihilate de 295x2 on every single spec, 720p-8k, rendering, gaming, you name it the titan rapes.
Actually the 295 costs in germany only 80 euros more than the 980, so I'm not so sure about that...
