    lol you guys.

    When I said R9 M295X CF would be cooler than GTX 880M I was obviously talking about M295X CF vs 880M SLI.
    And why does it really matter? As long as the heatsinks and cooling system works like they should in a notebook, a M295X CF could produce less heat than a system with single 880M. The GPU itself will be cooler, and any heat from the GPUs are mostly pushed out of the notebook anyway.
    All in all, the M295X CF will probably expel more heat out in the room than a single 880M, but in the bigger picture, does anyone really care?

    Extra wonderful heat in the winter and more heat produced in a world thats getting hotter and hotter each year anyway thanks to the global warming. I don`t think SLI and Crossfire configurations is the cause of that crisis. Unless the scientist have been wrong all along.
    :p

    HAHA, information about R9 M295X was leaked today.

    The information is a little bit hidden but what is certain is:

    R9 M295X have 4GB GDDR5 running @ 1375MHz
    R9 M290X have 2GB GDDR5 running @ 1250MHz

    R9 M295X have a core base clock is 800MHz.
    R9 M290X have a core base clock at 850MHz

    The R9 M295X have been tested with OpenGL and according to the entries, it have many changes from R9 M290X which makes me believe this is a new architecture. But I`m not sure.
    Does anyone know how to read these differences and translate them to what have changed?

    R9 M295X @ ozone3d.net
    R9 M290X @ ozone3d.net (8970M = R9 M290X)

    Just a little bit of what was leaked:

    32 compute units is the same number as the 7970.

    Of course how many shaders per unit is the question.

    Everything listed under " OpenGL capabilities" is the same across all AMD graphic cards from previous 2 years. R9 290X, 8970M, R7 260X etc. I have checked.
    The stuff above have changed. "3.0 core" etc whatever that means. They gotta mean something but that is way over my head

    Cloud, look at the bottom, I compared the 7870, 7970 and the one you have posted before posting.

    CL_Device_max_compute_units

    Or are you actually not asking for help from someone who has a better understanding of this information?

    You mean a 7970, not a 7970m, that is amazing, 7970 performance in a laptop, not bad at all, quite a big jump

    Those stuff that did change are OpenGL library extensions (probably programmed by AMD), there are 29 new ones and probably a few version updates. I didn't spend much time checking those but all I found was a lot of "String" and a bunch of code templates and not much code. Maybe those links are just descriptions of the functions of library extensions.
    I am not familiar with OpenGL, or any other GPU languages. I have only programmed in Java, C++, and Python (nothing too advanced).
