This webstie isn't a trusty source anyway, they said the Gtx 710 was better than the 295x so if you don't want to look like a complete idiot when you shit talk AMD don't use this site.
so where is amd in the hall of fame of firestrike.....long way down. nough said..
idk if you know, but the 980 ti is better than the titan series, in gaming anyway. but yes, this site will purposely use crappy drivers from amd without updating them. if look on this site, cards like the r9 270 and the r9 290 are performing way below than what they are supposed to in average frame rate tests.
Can we stop and talk about how bogus these results are? The 295 destroys the Titan x, yes it's because it has 2 GPu cores. This just shows how bias this site is. They even get the power usage chart wrong. The 295 uses way more power, over 500w on load, but it looks better for the titans bar to be bigger. And in the pros they list the some bias bench twice. Nvidia and AMD fans have to agree on one thing. This site is crap!
all of you need to stfu and buy the GPU you want, stop debating like dimwits, most of you probably couldnt afford either of these.
LMFAO!!! "We give a shit about power draw, because of our environment". Are you fck'n kidding me?? And are you really trying to compare a fck'n laptop to desktop cards?? Laptop cards are designed to draw less power regardless which one it is. Go back to 101 Gerd. And the only two ways any of these power consumptions make ANY significant difference is if you have no life and are playing WoW all day long while still living in your parents basement...or you work in a design field, from home, where you are always working on something intense. And even in that last scenario, the electricity use would be a write-off. Both are great cards. I have always preferred Nvidia cards for gaming and Radeon cards for design work. And yes, for those that are still wet behind the ears, Radeon was always the industry leader for graphics outside of gaming. And if you don't believe me ask Apple why they always had the Radeon cards as premium cards for their MacPro towers. And last but not least...TO EACH THEIR OWN, as these types of discussions will always be around for any product we use because as consumers its in our shitty nature to stick up for our reasons in buying what we do.
what if nvidea made dual-GPU Card With GM200 cores inside.... mmm i think AMD has to come a long way
at idle it would not have the same tdp i bet the AMD r9 295x2 draws more power even when idle because the other core doesnt shutdown fully
Yes it will.
So for AMD to beat Nvidia they need a dual GPU? With twice the TDP as well. But Nvidia still needs to try harder apparently
It consumes twice the power at load. When what your doing isn't demanding 1 of the gpu's in the 295 shuts off so it's the same. TDP at idle.
esse site é mentiroso demais vejam outro site http://www.hwcompare.com/18598/geforce-gtx-titan-x-vs-radeon-r9-295x2/
A maior piada do mundo kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk
It's a joke Direct X 12 is coming!!!
They only account for the one r9 gpu...? It should still be wooping butt
Because a system using that much power will probably increase your power bill by $300-400 per year?
mentirosoooooooooooooo ,foda né kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk, esse site é a maior piada do mundoooo kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk
We give shit about power draw, because of our environment, retard. I bought a laptop with i7 4720HQ + GTX970 and it consumes 30W ( green mode ) and max 120 W in BF4 60+ FPS, i would always pay more for higher efficiency ( that is the real value for me ).

I'll just leave this here... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HvDQzYhP05k
A Titan X2 would just ravage a r9 295x2,right now tho unless you want a lot of Vram i would just buy a 980Ti to get TitanX performance.
Haven't seen one personally but it seems over 10 websites I have visited it's only on this one that proves the titan x beats the R9 295x2...and beats it by that much? Lol :x I think there's a problem here...the 7990 might even beat the titan x imho :)
Yes I do...using 2 R9 290 in crossfire and it has given me no problems till now...the titan x and titan z are two products that just screams "for blind fan boys". Will never spend a dime on such a useless product
Why do you feel the need to throw insults about the cards? Let the facts stand on their own... childish responses don't help anyone make informed decisions.
It's absolutely clear you have no experience with multi-GPU cards or you wouldn't be spouting this nonsense.
