Not sure if my opinion counts here
If you reference the other 290x in the R9 mining comparison thread you are pretty much right at or above average.. I was getting 890khash at 918/1500
I have seen a few 290x breaking 900 and one at 1000. I never was able to break 900 without HW errors though.
If it helps I was at around 950 with a lower thread concurrency and intensity with threads at 2 instead of 1. You may be able to tweak things at that point to not have errors but I was just happy with 890 at the time.
Some guys in the R9 comparison thread are really helpful and you could try asking there?
Also yeah its sad mostly I don't see the 290x pull ahead of a normal 290 when it comes to mining.. Usually they are the same.
I also have seen a thread on bitcointalk about a cgminer for the r9 series that is modified to go past 20 intensity and a few other things. Some people report over 1000khash using it... I am trying to find the thread but its evading me..Edited by selk22 - 1/19/14 at 2:01am
