Hello everyone,

I wanted to get your thoughts on the overclocked performance of these two cards.

I've found several benchmarks online, but honestly it seems like 90% of the reviewers don't know how to overclock very well at all.

I'm personally comfortable and experienced with upping the voltages and like to push these cards to their max until they get to hot for my comfort level. They have to die at some point right haha? (Although I've never had a card go out on me, overclocked or not)

So pushing both cards to the max, which one will perform better?

Price is not a concern, as I'd be going for the Asus Matrix or Sapphire Toxic versions which are nearly the same price as the 770's.

The R9 280x is basically a rebranded HD 7970 which has similar performance to the GTX 770. not too sure about the Overclocks

For overclocking the R9-series have an edge against GTX 7XX series.

Have fun!

I think the two cards should be about the same. The Sapphire is the fastest R9 280x but that Asus model hasn't been tested yet. The real difference comes down to the software. How user friendly is Sapphire's and Asus's? That's how I'd decide. Personally I like a lot of ease and real time graphs....one of the many reasons why I choose MSI GPUs.

You can't go wrong with either choice though.

If only everything in life had a clear concise answer haha. And I agree, I love MSI Afterburner. You don't have to have an MSI card to use it though. At least with Nvidia... Haven't had an AMD card in awhile, but I'd imagine it would be the same. Thanks for your opinions guys.

The software is irrelevant. You can use MSI Afterburner on Asus cards and vice verca.
