    Question 3 about the temperature is not very clear.Is it about the GPU Throttle Temperature or the Idle or the highest load ?
    Or you mean the FLIR measurments and which one the highest one from all ?

    As a owner of a GTX1070, there is no need to enter for this one, hopefully it will go to someone in need. :)

    Great competitions so far Guru, keep it up. :) <3

    Question 3 is very unclear to say the least, any chance of clarifying it?

    Thanks!

    Question no.1 is what confuses me... :bang:

    1. What was the generic Time Spy score for this card in our review?


    Question no.3 is very clear for me.

    If you read the page that is referring to thermals thoroughly you will find the answer for sure :D

    I think the questions are intentionally ambiguous if you don't pay close attention to details and context.


    This GPU [sadly] would make a pretty decent replacement to my R9 290. The performance of the two are roughly the same, but this is so much more power efficient. I like my current GPU, but I'm in the process of upgrading my PC. My current one mostly keeps up just fine, but I want to upgrade to reduce power consumption and heat without losing performance or spending the majority of my monthly income.

    This would be a good PhysX card for me..

    jk, I'm not entering because I don't need it - but good luck to those of you who do.

    I just received a free R9 290 from someone I play EVE online with (and GPU is hardly the bottleneck of my system anymore), but this would make a very nice re-gift for someone I know in need of a new graphics card.

    Yeah, the 290 is a great GPU and it's a shame that the reference cooler gave it (and AMD for that matter) such a negative stigma; the outcome of the 390 is what the 290 should have been. So far the GPU plays everything I want at max detail, with a few caveats. Anti-aliasing sometimes needs to be lowered, there are a couple games that complained about there not being enough VRAM, and in Linux the drivers still have some catching up to do.

    If I won the 1060 and was in a situation where I'd want to sell one of my GPUs, then I'd sell the 1060 since it'd be unused (and worth more in general). But as of right now, I wouldn't sell either since I still have uses for both.

    I haven't found any of the questions unclear guys, just read the reviews ;)

    Thanks for the Christmas gifts Hilbert!
