ASUS Radeon R9 280X Review


In our 3D Mark tests we saw that as the detail level increased, so did the relative performance of the R9 280X. In CatZilla though, no matter whether we're at the "looks like a PS1 game" 576 test of the full-on 1440 benchmark, the GTX770 comfortably beats the R9 280X. Even the GTX760 stays close until the image quality maximum where the 280X just pulls ahead.

Unigine Valley

Unigine Valley gives us an interesting result. Without any anti-aliasing the GTX770 has the upper hand, but once we apply the 8xMSAA the 280X comes back to tie.
