Usually I don't care about bias benchmark/websites since no single information is logically bias. But my awareness suddenly increased over how much misinformation a website can have.
Now some of us possibly heard the name GPUBoss before, you'll probably heard it through other forums or you just searched google the first benchmark text on your screen, not that I blame you for being lazy. Now my concern is that most of you don't know which information to trust in that disgustingly biased pathetic excuse for a website and just get along with it. I'll admit the design is very attractive, the format itself is very user friendly, and the numbers from the data they collected seems professional and unbiased
Now before I accuse them of anything let me ask you, do you know what an R9 295X2 is? If yes is the answer you should probably skip this paragraph, however if you don't know what it is, in layman terms it's 2 overclocked R9 290X dipped in an AIO watercooler.
In a more specific term Each of the two 6.2 billion-transistor GPUs has all its 2,816 GCN2 stream processors enabled, along with 176 texture memory units, 64 ROPs, and 512-bit wide GDDR5 memory interfaces that each hold 4 GB of memory for a total of 8 GB on the card, which should be more than enough memory for any display configuration you can try out with this card.
Basically a cheaper, OpenCL, red version of the TITAN-Z.
Most of you would know the baseline for single GPUs performance, it's basically like this: GTX 780ti > R9 290X > GTX 780 > R9 290.
So using common sense an R9 295X2 should perform similarly to two GTX 780ti and obliriate a single GTX 780ti in every single test measurable in Le Système international d'unités right?
But at the end of the day, you should take every information you have with a pinch of salt.
I just want to remind you no information is true, anything can be false, anything can be lies, everything can be lies.
That is all.
