Tomshardware - First "Official" R9 290X Benchmarks!

We're in the process of benchmarking AMD's upcoming Radeon R9 290X flagship. But before the embargo expires, the company gave us the go-ahead to publish a couple of numbers from tests we've already run.

Check it out here: http://www.tomshardware.com/news/amd-radeon-r9-290x-benchmark-performance,24732.html

I guess AMD wants to counter Nvidias upcoming press event.

This is nice, but I'm still waiting on benchmarks at resolutions that apply to the other 99% of users
post #3 of 6
Yeah. I can't wait to see non Ultra-Hd resolutions and other cards come to the table.
I'm still leaning towards Nvidia to replace my 7970 though. tongue.gif

Doesnt matter really imo - its an apples to apples comparison between 780 and 290x from a reputable website. Could be 10-15% faster than 780 at stock (looking at 2 games smile.gif )
