>friend has MSI r9 390
how does amd fuck up this bad? It shouldn't even be physically possible to be that warm when nothing is happening. I thought AMD cards had ZeroCore or some shit.
I bought an R9 290X*
The people who say it runs at 95C are all liars. It runs at 495C. I have to put the computer on the roof when it snows to be able to use it. The heat has made my PC water proof: I throw a bucket of water on it, but it all evaporates before getting close to the PC.
It operates at 193db. So loud that I cannot use it in my state. I rented a boat, drove the boat out 100 kilometers into the ocean, and put my PC there. I use a satellite uplink to stream my games. Great bandwidth, but terrible lag. Unfortunately, due to the noise, most of the fish in a 50km radius died.
The 290X also stutters badly. It goes like so: "Th-th-this is a f-f-f-f-frame f-f-f-for you." Unbearable.
Two days ago, the 290X killed 6 innocent people in my town. It also stole a large shipment of food meant to help starving people in a third-world country. It also destroyed a research laboratory where the cure for cancer had JUST been discovered. It created a wormhole-timeloop and destroyed the continent of Atlanta. The 290X killed Kennedy. Also Lincoln.
I should have bought a 780 or Titan.
*Fabricated story, same as OP
Thank you for your helpful post fellow consumer! I have decided to buy a quality NVIDIA graphics processor as a result of your experience and will recommend that my friends and blood relatives do also this.
>3 year old architecture in a mid range card vs brand new top of the line
>older card still competitive and in a lot of cases even better than the new ones
>the people here defending nvidia were probably the ones who told people to get a 770/780 over a 290 a few years ago
lmao these cucks
the ONLY nvidia card you should be getting right now is a 980ti, otherwise AMD is better in pretty much every way, unless you're a poorfag and care about efficiency... but you're not a poorfag, right anon?
