I'm looking for a GPU that good for all types of games.a GPU good for the new upcoming games.A GPU Good enough for new games.A GPU that won't burn out.Or is the AMD Radeon HD 7990 good enough?I'm kinda wanting to get the AMD Radeon HD 7990 but of there is a better GPU that will be great.No i'm not getting a Titan.Yes i know the 7990 takes up a bit more energy but i like the AMD one it runs smoother and better than the Titan.like i said if there is a better GPU than the 7990 that will be great?I'm mainly aiming for a GPU that the ultra settings will last,Won't burn out,it is good for all type of games,and I won't need to overclock the GPU for a while (by that i mean i won't need to overclock it for maybe 1 or 2 years).Thx if someone can help me find the top of line GPU (Right now cause i know more GPUs will come out).I'm mainly gonna be playing Battlefield 4,Battlefield 3,Batman trilogy,Assasins Creed Series,Dead rising trilogy,Tomb Raider,Far Cry Series,Mainly i want ultra settings on all those games a new games that are gonna come out if the AMD Radeon HD 7990 is good enough for that i'm good than.
When it comes to raw horsepower the Sapphire HD 7990 http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00CJ4KALE/ref=as_li_qf_sp_asin_il_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=B00CJ4KALE&linkCode=as2&tag=b0b929-20 is the top of the list and with the new drivers most of the microstuttering issues have been resolved so I can't say this card is a waste of money anymore.
A lot of information was presented in this thread:
In short, the 7990 has been discontinued due to it's overall poor implementation. It is well known to produce a loud coil whine noise. Like all Crossfire setups the 7990 is plagued by poor driver support and lacking game profiles. And finally, there are several instances where the latest drivers are unable to smooth out performance; all DirectX 9 games, including Skyrim, for example.
"However, we've also seen many games that do not scale well, and they make up a significant portion of our tests. Out of eighteen titles, five did not scale, or worse, showed negative scaling. These are not small titles, but big AAA games: Assassin's Creed 3, Batman: Arkham City, F1 2012, StarCraft II, Skyrim, and World of Warcraft. What really surprises me is that this long list is the same as the one we had with our reviews of HD 7990 "New Zealand" implementations by board partners, like the ASUS ROG ARES II and PowerColor Devil 13. So either AMD does not care or can't fix CrossFire support with these games millions of people play."
" What is a major issue, though, is the extremely annoying coil whine the card emits as soon as it runs a 3D application. The whine is generated by resonating power circuitry coils and is a problem that can be resolved; it's just an engineering challenge. NVIDIA did so for the GTX 690 and GTX Titan; both cards don't have such coil whine issues. On the HD 7990, however, it is very apparent, and I don't understand how AMD missed such a glaring problem. I talked to five other reviewers and they all confirm it, so it's not an isolated issue. What makes the whine even more apparent is that it is constantly changing pitch and volume, drawing your attention to it by effectively overpowering the fans' "whoosh" sound."
