ASUS Radeon R9 280X Review
Hitman Absolution and Resident Evil 6
Published: 8th October 2013 | Source: ASUS | Price: £274.99 |
Finally we have a test that shows a huge benefit with the R9 280X. The early release of Hitman Absolution was a chuggy mess but since then the patches and driver updates have vastly improved the playability. Even still the 280X comfortably beats out the GTX770 whether you're running at 1920 or 2560. Indeed the R9 280X is on a par with the GTX780 when it comes to the adventures of Agent 47.
Resident Evil 6
The tables turn in Resident Evil 6, with the GTX770 handily beating the 280X DirectCU II. It's hugely playable regardless, but it's so rare to find a title in which the two cards aren't neck and neck that it's worth mentioning.

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
