    Default R9-280X OC Crossfire Performance

    R9-280X OC Crossfire Performance.

    First pic is without, and the second has crossfire enabled on my two R9-280X OC cards.
    I'm happy with the results.

    Nice!! I have 280X in Xfire also, I should post my results for comparison.
    I am working on my system that has 2 R9 290s.. should be interesting to compare results when I finally get it up and running.

    It's a 2600K system, so it's a little old.
    But it's working better than it has in the past. The pair of 280Xs are pretty good even though they're not the same brand.
    I have a pair of 256GB SSDs to put in it in RAID next. That should help it out too.

    I can't afford a pair of 290s, or I would build with them too. (maybe you can give a pair of them away this summer and I'll win them) What a prize two R9-290s would make!! holy smokes!

    Lucky for me that the two 280s are plenty fast enough for my games and not too crazy hot, put together in my Rosewill Blackhawk Mid Tower Case. (it has awesome airflow)

    One of my next builds will have two GTX-680s on water and SSDs in RAID too. It will be in a Rosewill Blackhawk Ultra case. (my review, even though now, it somehow says that Jake did it, not me)

    Maybe an MiTX build is in my future too.

    I can only do the dual 290s because I worked out deals to acquire them and the blocks. If it was full price for all of this stuff then it would not be in my hands. I like that Blackhawk case. One of the best cases Rosewill made. Didn't know you did reviews. Why you stop? too old?

    The Test was run at the stock ~Extreme~ settings, but the cards are not running at stock.

    They're set at the same clocks, and both are bumped up here and there.
    They're on air, so I'm not gonna push it, seeing as though they're working really good now.
    (35c at idle and 47c gaming is the average temp)

    You should see how fast my Spider Solitaire game is now,.......

    How are AMD with the microstutter in XFire these days guys? It is a question pertinent to offering advice on card purchase choices.

    I need to be able to rate 780, 780ti and r9 290 or 290x against say r9 280 in X-Fire Can anyone point me at some good testing?
    Rig2: 2*e5-26xx (16c/32t @2.4), Asus z9 pe-d8 ws, 32gb ripjawsz under water, rig3 2*e5-26xx (16c/32t @2.4), Supermicro 7047A-T 16GB 1600 ecc reg, on air
