Sapphire R9 290X - other users?

I am having some stability issues after update two and I am trying to sort out if this is hardware or software related.

I have an X5020 and I am using a Sapphire R9 290X 2GB graphics card.

So far it has worked fine but with update two some of the Warp3D/minigl games freezes when they are starting up.

Anybody else running a R9 290X card in their X5000?

The supported card lists on Hdrlabs is old .... http://hdrlab.org.nz/projects/amiga-o ... mpatibility/#Motherboards

I am using the 3.7 RadeonHD driver and latest Warp3D and Minigl.

Thank you in advance!

Which games are freezes?

Also, do you have a serial cable attached to see what kind of crashes you have?

Usually, all those freezes on the running of the games which works before most of the times are misconfiguration or wrong libs/sobjs installed.

Also, are there any games that work fine? Especially if you tried games that use Warp3DNova, which is different from the ones that use minigl. If those are working fine, then I believe we can exclude that this is a hardware problem.

If Warp3DNova games crash as well, then I would check for possible heat issues at the card. It would be good to check the fans, and also change the paste under the heat sink, if possible.

@walkero

As far as I know Spencer is a Warp3DNova game. That works fine. Are there any other?

Gorky 17 freezes the system on the opening boat scene. The speedboat sails for a second or two then the system freezes. It works fine on a clean update 1 install.

At the same time Shogo works just fine on my update two partition so I am beginning to suspect something hardware related with my card. As in it not beeing completely supported.

I have recently turned on a couple of more fans in my system to get some more cooling going so I do not think it is heat related. What is the best temperature for the CPU? Mine is running around 70.

Do you have the Warp3D SI product installed ?.

@Spectre660

Yes I have Warp3D SI installed. Latest version.

@Capehill

Thank you. Will look there. But my problem is not related to OGLES2/Nova - at least not as I see it

@all
Thank you for all your good suggestions

I am still VERY interested in hearing from other R9 290X users.
