    Nvidia says that they are working actively with oxide to bring a sync compute support . They have to enable via driver?

    I'm at a point of purchasing 970gtx , please suggest asus or gigabyte or zotac or msi ( I will not OC)

    Or go with r9 390

    Nvidia will enable it in a driver. Anyway, neither R9 390 fully support DX12.

    Go for ASUS/MSI GTX970, you will have higher performance and much lower power comsumption.

    550 watt psu = low power 970, I would not run that 390 on a 550 watt psu.

    There is nothing to fix. There are no specification on how an async support must be run on the hardware. Supporting async compute launches serially is perfectly within specs.

    This being said, Maxwell 2 can support interleaved compute launches and they already promised that they will enable this in a future driver. The effect of this on Maxwell 2 performance is likely to be pretty small however.

    I don't understand.

    550w is good for 970 as 970 has lower power consumption or with 550w 970 will perform worse.

    I would not get a 390 with a 550 watt psu, that is why I recommended a 970 as it uses much less power than a 390.

    Yeah and why wouldn't you? I'm running a r9 290x at 1180 core +75mV
    and a FX 8320 at 4.6ghz on a 550W for over a year with 0 problems.
    Should i sell my 290x because my psu will most likely blow up in the next hour?

    There shouldn't be any problem with a 550W PSU and a R9 390.
    You can always lock power consumption to e.g. 250W via driver. which hardly costs performance. You can't overclock Hawaii GPUs well anway.

    I think you should wait until the first DirectX 12 game will arrive as a final version, which is Fable Legends in two and a half weeks.

    This is one of the things ill never get in such forums..
    My pc has almost every cable coming out of it plugged into
    something. 2 hdds 1 ssd 5 fans 1 dvd-r/w and two really powerhungry
    components from amd, ive had my cpu at 1.5v and 5.02ghz for bench
    purposes and the gpu at +200mV 1250 core at the same time both
    stress tested at 100% and the psu.. what about it i forgot i had a 550w
    because it never caused any problems.. and i dont run my config at
    those extreme settings. even if i do it doesnt matter because it may
    come close, but not close enough for me to even start noticing something.

    On top of all this cr@p the guy is gonna get intel with that r9 390...
    INTEL do you realize how funny that seems in my eyes. 100w vs 250w?
    Get a hold of yourselves please this is embarrassing.

    Good thing you didn't have Intel, because that would ensure OC-ed 290x consistently pulling 450w :)

    Seriously now, if it works for you good.
    But surely you realize you're dancing at the upper PSU edge with everything OC-ed

    550W with R9 390?

    not the route I'd take, but yes its possible.

    390 or 390X are better options

    If you wanna do it with an amd cpu and gpu, more power to you, I would never run your gear on a 550 watt psu. I like headroom in psu`s, they last longer that way.

    And usually PSUs at 50-60% load are most efficient.

    When you upgrade you should think about having a bit of headroom too, not "live on the edge", especially when it comes to PSUs.
    I'd rather get something more than i need just to be safe. You can't tell for sure how fast it will degrade especially if you have hefty OC's 24/7,might be a year might be five. Better safe than sorry.

    Have you tried running the occt psu test? If not you mind trying it and posting the results?

    There is nothing really to "fix". It's non-functional at the moment. So a driver will have to enable it, yes.

    If you're expecting that either company has a product that supports "every feature" then you are mistaken that's not happening. I think AMD said their GPUs don't support Conservative Rasertization & Raster Order View for example.

    nah 550W can't survive after 4 months high intense gaming. i think u really read & watch too much gimmick review.
