Questions and Answers

  • Question: So, i currently have an Asus Strix R9 285OC, AMD X4 860k, and 8 gigs on an Asus A88x pro.

    I play World of Tanks, Armored Warfare, Fallout 4, and Star Citizen. For the most part, i can run everything on high at 40-60fps. Star Citizen is about the only one i dont maxed. I would like to upgrade so i can run SC maxed.

    My question is, do I:
    A) Get a second R9 285 to run crossfire,
    B) Get a Polaris rx 480,
    C) Wait for Zen and upgrade CPU, mobo, and ram, or
    D) Wait for Zen, sell everything, and upgrade everything?

    note; I am indeed an AMD fanboi, so Nvidia is out, and Intel is out unless Zen turns out to be overpriced.

    Answer: In your case it's better to wait for ZEN and see what you want to do after. Xfire 285s will be bottlenecked by your CPU and you don't have very worthy CPUs in AMD's side for now. Yeah probably worth waiting if you can hold onto what you have now (ie lower some detail settings in your game)
