Really? So far my 290 @1160-1180/1450-1500 can keep up with 480 @13XX to 1400 in firestrike. With 390 modded ROM but with stock memory timings.
I'm referring to only the ultra score, sorry meant to clarify that. And after checking some of my old runs, I see that I did manage to get around 3140 in ultra at high clocks, which were for the most part too damn hot to run in the non-winter months.
My highest 1080p score was 14,900 graphics (1200/1750). Which my brother still has been able to beet on his rx 480. This thing is stout on the driver for sure!! He doesn't have all his games installed to the new system yet, so not been able to test game FPS, but those could be skewed against my records anyways since he is on a highly clocked 6600k @ 4.8, and I was on a 9590 @ 5ghz (I have since sold that chip and am waiting to get the cash together to build another system. Unfortunately the chip got lost at the business office and I am trying to make things right with the buyer, which has been a nightmare on my part cause he is a super nice guy, I should of just kept the damn thing
I told him something is strange with his scores cause 14,300+ is mighty high to be right out of the box, and I literally saw him simply plug the card in, install the driver, and increase the power limit to 50% and make a first pass.
