How are you all monitoring your temperatures? I've heard of someone having overheated his card due to the 290x's inablility to display temperatures or change fanspeeds in Mavericks and Yosemite.

i have a hybrid bios that has unlocked voltage and sapphire tri-x oc clocks and a custom fancurve built in so my gou never goes over 75c max load

Hi guys. 

 

Is there progress on Dual Screen on the 290X over DVI/HDMI?

 

I have a 290X that's still in the box waiting to be installed ;)

 

Thx

if you have two gpu's just use both hook one screen up to the other gpu and hook 2 screens up to the 290x

My case is to small for two cards.
 
If the situation does not change in the coming weeks, I will sell the card and wait for an alternative. I jumped to fast on unsupported hardware, will not happen again ;)
 
 
Keeping an eye one the 980/970, but hey seem to have similar problems.

That's a pretty good idea. I'll have to find a tutorial on that!

My 980 works on all ports except HDMI. 4 display outputs is still quite enough for me though. Later this week I will be attempting to get HDMI working with NVCAP. Most 980s (and a lot of the 970s, including the Gigabyte one) it seems the only port that doesn't work is the HDMI.

Apologies if this is a silly question, but does anyone know if the new Catalyst Omega drivers in Windows affect anything hardware/firmware-wise (i.e. could it affect compatibility on the OS X side)? I noticed on the release notes it says:

 

  • This driver is not intended for use on AMD products running in Apple Boot Camp platforms. Users of these platforms should contact their manufacturer for driver support

Maybe the new drivers are just not compatible with the GPUs that normally come with real macs? Anyway, thanks!
