PowerColor R9 290X PCS+ Review

Tomb Raider

Lara might be getting on in years but the latest reboot of her used-to-be-tomb-raiding-now-I-just-kill-people adventures looks as good as ever. There is a lot of extra performance to be had from the MSI Lightning And ASUS DCUII OC than the PowerColor PCS+, but it still performs admirably.

Yet another solid performing cooler for the 290/290x gpus. It just shows how much AMD messed up with their cooler. Decent little card, its a shame powercooler aren't often considered in builds.Quote

Looks like the Tri-X has some competition. Nice to see more 290s that have good coolers, keeping them cool and quiet.
Take note Asus and others, the less popular brands have done better than you, get your act together Quote

I have the R9 290 version of this card and I'm blown away by it runs Star Citizen on maximum settings butter smooth and if I turn Vsync off on skyrim it runs heavily modded on ultra settings and doesn't dip below 257FPS, with Vsynce on it stays at a constant 62 FPS+ on my 32inch TV I use as a monitor till I get a 4K monitor and on Uniengine Heaven it averages 72FPS maxes out at 139FPS on highest settings without anything other than the stock clock settings

Might have to get a second one if I can fit it on my Asus Maximus VI Formula trouble is it doesn't leave much clearance for the top card and I'm worried about choking its air supply ?Quote
