Why buy GHz models?

peace of mind that you'll get your desired speeds maybe? I don't have a GHz card, but i can see the draw... kind of.

AMD have a bunch of monkeys writing their drivers. Another killing blow to themselves.

This seems like bad thing for AMD. Who's gonna buy an R9 290X when you can make one out of an R9 290?

Eh yeah, that. Why should AMD be pleased that people have less reason to buy their top-end product?

Damn, I didn't realize GameFAQs had so many people capable of writing driver software.


It's a shame the green kool-aid you guys are chugging isn't anti-freeze.

AMD's about $2 billion in debt. I think they would rather like some money.

You can't play that card anymore after recent issues with Nvidia's drivers.
