AMD R9 290X Review

Far Cry 3

Performance in Far Cry 3 is a tale of two halves. At the regular resolution it's clear that the 290X hasn't quite got the same level of performance as the nVidia GTX780, but moving up to the 2560x1440 the R9 290X gains a 5 frame advantage. Unfortunately it doesn't benefit from an overclock, and once you overclock the GTX780 it gets 7 FPS better than the regular R9 290X. Complicated, but in short the best performance is had with the nVidia card.

What a shame like everyone else i suppose i was really hoping this card was gonna be a beast and to be let down like a lead balloon....... sigh! Lets just hope AMD get their finger out their asses and let the 3rd party vendors loose and see if they can pick them up again so it's a least a half decent card and sooner rather than later!!Quote

Well Guv? Time to go get an MSI 780? Need a new card pretty badly.
Edit: or I could pull the trigger on getting one and watercooling that puppy....Quote
