Gaming on the cards is equal, FPS wise R9 290 wins some and 780Ti wins some.
R9 290X is only a few %points difference so would still be the same as the 290x when overclocked.
780Ti boost clock ran at 1219 core
R9 290 ran at 1200 core
Gerard, first off nice to see another caper on here.
The 780 Ti Firestrike run, can you do another and post the results with a valid score?
It's for a few reasons.
Time measurement was skewered on the Ti run and can play a factor on the score.
Look at the physics score for each run. Your cpu somehow lost 1600 points between the 2 runs.
You also have virtually no overclock on the 780 Ti memory. Try adding 250 to the memory.
Here's a run from OCN's own Firestrike thread.
Core is 1205 and memory 1900 mhz. 13755 graphics score.
Also, are you sure the clock for the Ti is right? If you look at the result I linked, he's getting 65 mhz of boost over what Firestrike is recording which is average. If you look at yours compared to what Firestrike reports, you're getting an extra 143 mhz which is well over average.
