This new name branding structure. Makes no **********g sense. Please name your GPU's easier things to label in tiers AMD, kthx

Why is non-x better than x? Who knows.


There really still are people that are too dense to understand AMD's new naming scheme?

I see you have an Intel CPU, let me help you out.

Intel i5-2500K
AMD R9-290X

K is for overclocking. So what the hell is X for? Do we need an equation to figure it out?


You can overclock a non-K model, it's just not an unlocked modifier for the base clock.

EDIT: Oh, I'm not sure about Haswell nowadays, but the older non-K's had a few things you could adjust to OC within the BIOS to an extent.

K is for an unlocked multiplier. X is for more shaders and higher base clocks. Do you guys not know how to figure out anything by yourselves?
