If that's true, its very funny and sad at the same time.
Sapphire Radeon R9 Fury X 4G HBM (UEFI)
It is rather GPU-Z problem.
BIOS was taken with GPU-Z
my bad, must have read wrong, also couldn't remember your post, sorry, hopefully u will be succesful :gape:
That's why I specifically mentioned I wasn't using gpu-z to check for uefi rom.
pc bios part of FuryX rom has last_rom indicator set, which means there is no more rom, GPU-z wouldn't modify that flag when dumped. The dump is 128kb, but after 60928 bytes there are only zeroes.
TL;DR not an GPU-z issue.
And your link has no rom.
no idea on uefi I haven't flipped the bios switch yet
mine is a XFX r9 fury x and running full tilt furmark even the fan never really goes past 1000 and seriously quiet.
also happens to be the cheapest here (got mine for $999 aus) some places are trying for $1199...I mean ...seriously..
ncix has some but the xfx is dearer...maybe its a Canadian thing
One of my locals dropped their price already, had em for £599 other day, only £549 today
Got one pre-ordered for £509
Some have been £509 from release at OCUK.
Yeah but i don't use those, i'll just keep my pre-order @ ebuyer, instead of stumping up the extra £40 at my local, need to get the Benq Freesync monitor sorted first anyhow, so i can wait.
Bonus from work came...
So I ordered one!
Now to decide if I get too impatient and slap it in my Mac now(And find room for the cooler!), only have Windows support, or wait until I order the rest of my new rig....
Unless Netkas has some input on Fury X support in OS X.
You still have a Mac tower? What motherboard? Is it Hackintosh?
Mac Pro 5.1.
The actual card will fit, but there's nowhere to put the rad in!
Rofl hackintosh... wtf..
What about here:
Don't laugh, it is a very real thing
Problem is I have to modify it, which I didn't want to do to this tower at all. I might order my new rig soon anyway, so won't have to worry about it.
Zipties through the mesh and the radiator mounting holes? It's a bit ghetto, but if the ties are black it shouldn't look that bad and they can be as safe (or safer) than screws.
You can try El capitan, I saw device-id of FuryX in AMD9000Controller.kext, which means you might get at least framebuffer support (res change).
But for that better go to forum.netkas.org
Some interesting news about OC'ing HBM shows nice boost.
Im going "furious" (60% fury 40% 980ti atm) with my next rig (August), need to see how fury works in win10 with new drivers...
@Rich_Guy, which benq are you looking at? atm im trying to choose one of this two: Benq XL2730Z or Asus MG279Q.
PS: One last thing off topic... sorry. Any new info about Skylake? Exists Skylake-E? im doubtful about CPU... 2011-3 Haswell-E hexacore, Skylake i7, Skylake-E ?
CPU wise, you have a z97 motherboard, get an i7 4790k. It is by far the best cpu performance wise. Those 6 cores cpus don't offer any performance boost over it. If you are building a new pc and have the budget for it, wait for the skylake and see how they perform.
GPU wise, either gpus will deliver you a performance boost up to 4x of what your gpu is offering you depending on the game and the resolution/settings. So go with which ever is cheaper where you live.
