Hi, I'm on to buy a new AMD GPU (I don't like nVIDIA). But, I can't decide whether to buy an HD7750 or a new R7 250.
I know, that 7750 is supported, but what about AMD's new R7 series? Especially with the 250?
Thanks in advance
Can someone revise the original post and mention that all of the AMD R7 R8 and R9 cards except the 290 and 290x work completely out of box since they are just re-named versions of the older 7xxx series cards. No die shrink or anything like that just new names on the box.
As for the 290 and 290x you can enable graphics only but a lot of stuff wont work correctly. The intel dedicated graphics can handle 2 monitors if you need to change DP to HDMI then just use an adapter and you will have 2 HDMI... or use HDMI and DVI if that is an option for you.
You need to make sure that you set your graphics initialization in the motherboard settings to select the iGFX or iGPU or whatever they call it as first video and not PCIe 1 2 or 3. If your monitor has enough inputs on it then what I do is I just run my embedded graphics to my monitor with 1 cable and my 290 with another cable.
I would like to know if anyone knows if any of the developer beta updates has 290 drivers?
