most reviews, even here in ocn by members, compare numbers and disregard game play quality such as smoothness. nvidia is quite known for smoothness. not to say the 290s are not at par 'cause i am not in the possition to compare. but if you want to see numbers here is one . . .

The main issue I find is the 290x gameplay is always compared to the 780ti not the standard. It would be good the know what sort of performance gain i would get at 1920 x 1080 by changing to a 290x

A 290x is almost a GTX TITAN performance wise so there is not point for a little upgrade(780gtx)

Save your money for the new generation of 20nm or even stacked dram or nvlink

with 1080 . . . ZERO. like there is no difference between the 290 and 290X for the same rez. in benches, yah, about 5%. you see that FS score i linked? the 290X can match that at 1200 core. oc our gpus and we can match the 290X no sweat using 1080.

there are no games out that would limit a 3GB card at 1080. none that i know of.

Difference between the 290x and 780 should not equate to a better gaming experience. I would just stick with what you have and wait.

I tested a 290 OC'd to 1230/7600 and a 780 at 1306/6700 a ways back and performance is actually pretty close for the most part. Do not have any left other bench results outside of Firestrike scores though for my 780. For giggles I'll throw in my 780ti score from 1261/8000.

3dMark Firestrike (not extreme)
780ti Graphics Score 13334.0
780 Graphics Score 12337.0
290 Graphics Score 12015.0

....................... 780 ....... 290 ....... 780ti.....
Graphics Test 1 - 59.4.... 57.8 fps.... 66.3 fps ...
Graphics Test 2 - 48.9.... 47.7 fps....51.5 fps....

Let me ask you this: do you run 3DMark with all the driver settings at default? It's just interesting that you always quote 3DMark results and you seem quite defensive whenever anyone with a Radeon posts a result that quite doesn't match yours. It is borderline arrogant, the way you know everyone else's skill levels and the way their setup is running by one single look at one single benchmark result.

Be that as it may, jhatfie's conclusion is solid. Hawaii is a really nice chip but a good clocking 780 is a tiny bit better than even the 290X especially at 1080p.
