ASUS Radeon R9 280X Review

Crysis 3

The newest in the Crysis series wasn't released at the time of the original HD7970 review, so it's harder to compare the 280X to the card it already is, but we can still see how it compares to the GTX770 and it, once again, proves capable of doing well. In the 1920 test it's a few behind and in the higher resolution it claws back a lot of that to end up a single frame ahead.

Far Cry 3

The Game of the Year in 2012 works well on the ASUS R9 280X with 40FPS at 1920x1080. In the 2560x1440 result we can see that the combination of driver updates and the faster clock speed of the R9 280X when compared to the HD7970 are worth 6FPS. It is, again, identical to the GTX770 in the higher resolution, although it's giving up a couple of frames in the standard 1080P benchmark.

It would be nice when the 290X comes out if you could weave in there somehow, how fantastic these cards are at folding.Quote

Is it just me or were there a few benchmarks where thee 7970 out performed the 280 x. I found that really unusual/confusing

As for the now confirmed pricing I can see how that bumped it up to gold award because you can essential crossfire 280x for just over the price of a single 7970 when they were releasedQuote
