AMD's internal R9 290X benchmarks revealed

Written by Slobodan Simic

Beating GTX 780 by quite a margin

AMD has given the green light to select memebrs of the press to show some benchmarks of its upcoming R9 290X flagship graphics cards in two games that are part of its own Gaming Evolved program. Long story short, at 3840x2160 Hawaii beats the GTX 780 by quite a margin.

Of course, both benchmarks were done in so called "Quiet Mode" and as you probably already know, the R9 290X will also have the Uber-mode where it should actually provide even more peformance. While Bioshock Infinite and Tomb Raider are two games where we did expect R9 290X to pull ahead, it is still nice to see at least some official info regarding the performance of the R9 290X.

According to AMD's results, that should be taken with a grain of salt, the AMD Radeon R9 290X pulls 44.25 average frame rate in Bioshock Infinite whle Nvidia GTX 780 sticks at 37.67. In Tomb Raider, with quite high settings and without TressFX, AMD R9 290X manages to get average of 40.2 FPS while Nvidia GTX 780 is down at 34.5FPS.

There are still a lot of unknowns since we are looking at average framerates and the fact that these were released by AMD, so we do not even know the drivers that were used or the rest of the setup. Of course, these are also benchmarks on 4K/UHD 3840x2160 reoslution which is still quite expensive for most consumers and the R9 290X might behave differently at lower resolutions.

In any case, we'll know for sure as soon as AMD gives the green light and lifts the R9 290X NDA. That should happen on 24th of October.
